Adventure in Spain
A walking holiday in Spain is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the culture and passion of the Iberian peninsula. Our Spanish treks are based all over the country, from the hidden delights of Andalucia to coastal hideaways in Catalonia.
For most of our walking holidays in Spain, you are likely to fly into Barcelona or Madrid, both perfect for a couple of nights before your walking trip begins. The Spanish capital Madrid has a wealth of museums, restaurants and stunning architecture. Its wide, elegant boulevards make it a perfect city for walking in. Spain has many wonderful cities, but Madrid is definitely worth visiting.
Barcelona is famed for its tapas, cava, football and nightlife. Antoni Gaudi created two of the cities most famous sights, the Sagrada Familia, and Parc Guell which add to the colour and flair of this Catalan city.
Spain is comprised of 17 regions, each unique and offering something different to the traveller. Every region claims to have the best chorizo, tortilla Espanol, jamon or wine and it is worth trying to sample as many as possible. We offer a wide variety of walking holidays in Spain, to let you experience all this diverse country has to offer.
Trekking in Southern Spain has so many contrasts. From its vibrant cities, famous for paella, zesty oranges and flamenco, to its peaceful hills, flecked with sleepy Moorish villages. We have tours that take in the splendour of the Alhambra in Granada, the Alcazar and Gothic Cathedral in Seville, while still taking time to walk the back roads and hidden spots, abundant in Andalucia.
Walking holidays in Catalonia allows you to discover the hidden side of the Costa Brava. You can visit the Salvador Dali museum in Figueres, eat in one of the many Michelin star restaurants or disappear into the quiet mountains before spending the evening in the coastal towns where the Spanish people choose to spend their holiday.
While many people flock to Spain for its beaches, we can offer a beach holiday with a twist. On many of our coastal treks in Spain, you will discover hidden coves and white beaches with hardly another soul in sight.
Away from the mainland, you will find a totally different experience for walkers. Holidays in Mallorca and Menorca, showcase the rugged mountains and pristine beaches of the Balearics. Walking holidays in the Canaries show a different side to these Spanish islands. Away from the mass tourism of the resorts, the trails allow you to discover scenery that you would not typically expect in Spain, walking through lush rainforest and over moon-like, volcanic landscapes. For island walking holidays, Spain offers great diversity and wonderful experiences.
Our walks in Northern Spain are dominated by the Camino de Santiago in all its forms. Walking the Camino de Santiago is a spiritual hiking holiday with an emphasis on camaraderie. Walking the Camino del Norte offers the same epic trek to Santiago, but on the path less travelled. All our Camino walking holidays are created with the Pilgrim in mind, offering the life-changing experience of trekking the Camino, but with the knowledge that we have your back every step of The Way.
