Walking Holidays in Spain

Discover the genuine side of Spain on one of our walking holidays. Spain is more than the crowded beaches and tourist traps, it is a rich historical country with so many contrasting landscapes and discovering them on foot is the best way to get to the heart of the country, meet its friendly inhabitants and sample the fine gastronomy which has made Spain famous. 

Since 2008, Macs Adventure has been helping hikers to explore this glorious country. With the freedom to create your own itinerary and the knowledge that our team have the expertise to tailor-make your trip to Spain perfectly suit you, so all you need to do is pick your route and let us take care of everything else.

Walk the famous Camino de Santiago de Compostela for a journey for the spirit and soul. Choose to slow down and allow yourself to be embraced by the rural tranquillity of "Old Spain" in Las Alpujarras in Southern Spain, on a relaxing single-centre walking holiday. Discover idyllic island life on Mallorca or Menorca or enjoy the beautiful beaches, fiery spirit, and culture of Catalonia and the Costa Brava.

Discover Spain at your own pace

  • Why Book your Spanish Walking Holiday with Macs Adventure?
    Why Book your Spanish Walking Holiday with Macs Adventure?

    Macs Adventure has been running self guided walking holidays in Spain since 2008.  As soon as we walked the Camino, we knew that Spain had so much to offer hikers and we started to look for other areas to set up our style of holidays. 

    From humble beginnings, we now send over 2500 hikers every year to Spain, each of them finding their own adventure. We provide the freedom to choose your route, itinerary and travel companions and to discover Spain at your own pace. 

    We knew from experience how important it was to have amazing partners on the ground in Spain to deal with any issues that you might come across.  We are proud to say that our Spanish team, suppliers and baggage handlers are outstanding and should you have the slightest issue, they will fall over themselves to help you out. 

    We offer a flexible, tailor-made experience that gets you in comfortable, friendly overnight accommodation in local B&Bs and guesthouses. We carry your bags to lighten your load so you can concentrate on simply putting one foot in front of the other and enjoying the unique culture, food and scenery of the less-travelled parts of Spain. No hostels, no shared dorms, no heavy bags on your back, just the assurance that we have it all covered for you. 

    We want to showcase our expertise, by giving you all the resources you will ever need.  In the planning stage, we have free guides, comprehensive videos and a host of staff with their own Spanish experience, waiting to answer your questions. On the route, we use high-quality digital mapping as well as the best maps and guidebooks to make sure you find your way.  

    We love Spain and our main aim is to make sure that you do too.  

  • Best Places to Hike in Spain
    Best Places to Hike in Spain

    Andalucia - Andalucia on the southern coast is hot, both metaphorically and physically.  During the summer it gets unbearably hot here and definitely not the place you want to go walking in these months.  however, the rest of the year reveals a hiking paradise with trails winding through the Sierra Nevada hills, along dramatic, untouched coastline and visiting Cordoba, Grenada and Seville, three of Spain's great cities. 

    Catalonia - Barcelona is the heart of this autonomous region of Spain, but by no means is it the only reason for visiting.  There are superb walking trails in Catalonia. The rocky coast winds its way down the Mediterranean revealing tranquil hidden coves, whitewashed villages and some outstanding seafood. Then there are the mountains, a relatively undiscovered location filled with stunning views, rustic food and friendly welcomes. Just as an aside, Cava and Priorat are created here, just in case you fancy a glass or two at the end of the day.

    Basque Country – Sticking with the north we have Spanish Basque Country. While each region has its own food specialities, Basque Country is where to come for a serious gastronomic feast. San Sebastian is worth a holiday on its own, but the Camino del Norte links it with Bilbao, passing through many little fishing villages, which is a spiritual trip, with a heavy focus on food. Amazing scenery, the friendliest people, Basque Country is heavenly.

    Canary Isles – So far away from Spain, but very identifiably Spanish, the Canaries sit off the coast of Africa, isolated in the Atlantic ocean.  Each island has its own charms, the botanic wonderland of La Gomera, the stark volcanic beauty of Tenerife, and each hold a wide variety of enchanting walking routes. Perfect for some winter walking as the temperature in winter is around what we would expect in the UK in summer.

    Balaeric Isles – The party island of Ibiza and holiday resort of Mallorca are not traditionally seen as active holiday destinations, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.  Ibiza has many secret walking trails to discover a whole other side of the White Isle. Mallorca has the famous GR221 Tramuntana Trail taking you through otherworldly mountains, or you can stay in hidden retreats and walk on coastal beauty far from the tourist crowds.

  • Walking the Camino del Norte

    The north coast of Spain is one less visited by holidaymakers, which makes it the perfect place to explore Spain without the crowds.  What makes it even more perfect is the stunning scenery, outstandingly friendly locals and, of course, the food. The Camino del Norte is the quieter and arguably more beautiful cousin of the Camino de Santiago and this video gives you a broad overview of the first stage. 

  • Camino de Santiago final stage - Sarria to Santiago

    A group of customers were kind enough to make a video of their experience walking the final stage of the Camino de Santiago.  Walking from Sarria to Santiago makes sure you are able to pick up your Compostela certificate at the end to make your completion of the trip official.
