Guided walking holidays in Spain
Hiking in Spain – Camino Walking Holidays
Why not get away on your walking holidays in Spain this year. A classic destination for walking holidays Spain is known for the 500 mile walk or the Camino de Santiago trail, but there is much more to the country than simply the pilgrimage El Camino hike. In our Walking Holidays in Spain portfolio we offer a unique selection of guided walking tours in Spain and on the Iberian peninsula for travel lovers of all levels and abilities.
Here at France Outdoors our ethos is to stay away from the overstretched and over populated mass tourism areas, and seek out unique experiences off the beaten track where natural beauty is abounding. Spain offers plenty of choice for the discerning hiker and walking enthusiast, from the Sierra Nevada or Sierra de Guaros mountain ranges to the unique cultural heritage area of the Basque Country or the towering mountains of the Spanish Pyrenees on the border with France, where bears and wolves still roam.
Unique Destinations – Walking Holidays in Spain
The south of the country has the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountain range, a hiking paradise in the beautiful Andalusia region. Our Sierra Nevada Walking Holiday will take you also through the Alpajurras mountains, and the historical and cultural city of Granada. the unique landscape and isolated whitewashed villages clinging to the mountain slopes are an experience not to be missed.
To the north, the Picos de Europa mountain range, a lush green limestone mountain range that extends up to 2650m and is criss crossed with walking trails, including in proximity the Camino de Santiago hiking trail and pilgrimage. This is a part of Spain that is steeped in culture and local history, in which we feel far removed from the modern world. Walk through pastures and high meadows via ancient Roman paths, and don’t miss the spectacular 2000m summits of Mancondiu. Picos de Europa Walking Holiday
For something different in a unique cultural and historical area, Spanish Basque Country Walking Holiday has all to please. Between the mountain and the sea, in the Spanish seaside fishing town of Getaria and the mountain of La Rhune, culminating point of the Pyrenees at the coast, in a unique cultural and physical landscape worlds away from the mass tourism of the southern coast.
