Update 28/11/21. Login to Contact the Organiser 'Lazlo Woodbine'
I have started a Facebook group Cami de Cavalls. To join you have to be my friend. I have put the itinerary on the group news feed. I will also be changing the bus itinerary as we no longer want airport transfer. This should save us a bit but means we have to make our own way to the hotel. The hotel is the ARTIEM CAPRI in Mahon.
We have enough people wanting to go to make this trip viable. It is safe to go ahead and book flights, we have to assume that we wont be locked down again but if we are we will be able to reclaim our money.
Because of the number of different flights we are using it would be better to arrange your own transfers. I will cancel the airport transfer.
Update 19/11/21. *****URGENT***** Manchester Menorca flight cancelled by Easyjet. Can those flying from other airports please contact me as to whether they are affected.
Just checked, London and Bristol flights are unaffected. There is a direct flight from East Midlands. There is a one stop flight from Manchester to Barcelona with a direct flight return. 3 hour wait in Barcelona. There is a direct flight from Newcastle with a one stop flight return via Majorca.
UPDATE 13/04/21. Just a friendly reminder that 4 people are yet to pay the deposit and it is due by the 28th April.
UPDATE 28/03/21 The Hotel and the bus require a 25% deposit with the balance payable 1 month before we go. The deposit is £65 for the Hotel and £30 for the bus. This is based om 1.16 Euros to the pound so the balance might be slightly more or less than 75%. There is also a bit in for the bank's commission. Could you please forward £95 by bank transfer. Those who need my bank details please contact me by private message. If not received by April 28th 2021 I will offer a place to a reserve otherwise I will be out of pocket.
UPDATE: 18/03/21 The hotel has requested a deposit as it is a group booking. The bus company will also require a deposit to secure the bus. The deposit will be returnable right up to December 21st 2021 provided that a replacement can be found. I will let you know how much shortly.
Another adventure but this one a bit more sedate. The Cami de Cavalls is a walk of 185kms which circumnavigates the island of Menorca. Oddly enough for an island people the Menorcans were not great sea goers. In fact they feared the sea as from the 13th century it brought pirates who took kidnapped Menorcans to sell in to slavery. In 1330 a path round the island for was built for cavalry to watch out for pirates and protect the people. After the end of piracy the path was used by occupiers such as the French and British to defend the island. In 2010 the path was reinstated as a long distance tourist route.
I am proposing an 8 day walk starting at Mahon where I have reserved some 2 bedroom rooms in a 4 star hotel. The cost for an 11 day stay will be around £250 per person sharing a room. This is an excellent price as Menorcan hotels are generally quite expensive. The hotel has an indoor heated pool as the sea is a bit chilly this time of year.
I have booked a coach to take us to the start of each days walk and return us to the hotel. I had to do this as the northern half of the walk does not have much accommodation. There are flights from various airports. The cost of the coach transfers depends on the numbers who go but should be around £150 each. Total cost around £500 for 11 days.
The itinerary has 8 walks varying in length from 16km to 32km max, averaging just over 20km per day. Only one day has section which is challenging, the rest is classed easy ot moderate. There is one rest day at the end of the walk.
Please show your interest. I have a limited number of places and often my trips are over subscribed. The hotel does not do reductions for single occupancy of a room.
