Price Reductions

I remember doing economics in school as a kid.

Supply and Demand was one of the main chapters and the concept was fairly simply. If there is a fixed supply of a certain goods or services and a big demand for those goods or service then the price would rise accordingly.

However if the supply remained the same but the demand drops then the price will also drop.

These are economic truisms that have remains fairly constant for millenia.

So as we enter the hiking season of 2020/2021 we find that supply remains the same. I made a stocktake of the mountains yesterday and I'm confident that they are all still there; none missing.

But the demand (ie tourists, travellers, visitors etc) are greatly reduced and may well be for the remainder of this hiking and walking season.(October '20 to May '21)

Therefore the economic law of supply and demand means that the prices should fall.

So from the start this season in late september until its conclusion in early June, the prices for the hikes and excursions will be reduced.

An Easy walk is now €15 per person, down from €25.

A Moderate Hike is now €18 per person, down from €25.

The Acebuchal Lunch hike is now €28 per person, down from €35.

The Hard Hikes are now €30 per person, down from €40.
