As an experienced professional, César will manage the itineraries and spectacular mountain route of your walk very carefully. Fully insured (Public Liability Insurance) and able to navigate on the mountains safely under any weather conditions. He observes, approaches and explores the mountains from every angle, and will advise about the most suitable route.
Many years ago, he was touched by the beauty of Ireland, especially the South West. During the last 10 years, César has extensively explored Killarney National Park, Mangerton, Purple Mountain, the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, Iveragh, Dingle and Beara peninsulas, and walked most of the mountains ranges of Ireland.
César regularly leads walks in a voluntary capacity for a Hillwalking Club, and has organised and coordinated walking holidays in his homeland - the mountains of Alicante, Sierra Nevada & Nerja in Spain.
Water running from streams, rivers, waterfalls and lakes along to The Atlantic Ocean; woodlands with native and ancient trees covered in moss; wild flowers, ferns, heather and gorse; red deer, wild goats, white-tailed eagles, foxes; remains of dwellings built by earlier inhabitants thousands of years ago will cause you to pause.
Walking in this scenery will enhance the positive side of your personality and you will be filled with a sense of well-being.
The journey through The Gap of Dunloe showcases the grey and purple majesty of Purple Mountain and the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, which contrasts with Mangerton Plateau and the dramatic mountain passes around Horses Glen.
There is the vibrant magic and prevalent green in the valleys and woodlands of Killarney National Park, which transforms into a rich tapestry of differing shades of golden browns as summer turns to autumn over the mountains of County Kerry.
Walk could be adapted to changing conditions.
Weather, time of the year, ground conditions, terrain, distance, ascent, time, pace, quality of hiking gear, your fitness level, how you feel (energy level), hillwalking experience, and the group’s ability, are factors that will determine the real grade of difficulty of a walk. For instance, wet ground (rocks, grass) makes difficult to keep the balance and increases the risk of a slip.
The walks take place on varied terrain at different paces. Some sections of the routes will be through tough wet boggy moorland, uneven broken ground, areas with overgrown heather, grass or bracken, and ascending hills and mountains over steep ground.
Often we do short stops to catch our breath; to admire the mountains, flora and wildlife; to take pictures; to have lunch break, etc. After a walk, you might feel a little bit tired, but have the impression that time passed quickly and have a feeling of happiness & well-being. Those are the signs that you enjoyed thoroughly the walk.
No matter the season, or how many times you have visited, each time will fill you with joy.
