Great Walking Holidays In Spain

Are you thinking about taking a walking holiday in Spain? The country has a lot to offer, and by walking, you’ll be able to experience it all up close and personal. However, if you’re not familiar with Spain, it can be hard to determine where to go. Fortunately, there are a number of famous areas and highly-rated places in Spain that are perfect for a walking holiday. Here are some of these great areas.

Great Walking Holidays In Spain

The Sierra Nevada Mountains

If you love gorgeous views and a challenging hike, the Sierra Nevada Mountains may have the perfect walking holiday for you. Many of the itineraries here take you to the Alpujarra region. This area features many valleys that are home to small villages inhabited by farmers. You’ll have the chance to visit with the locals, explore the area, and take in many of the unique plants and animals that live in the mountains. It’s not all walking, since you do have the opportunity to take a bus to get to the main part of the Alpujarra.

The Pilgrim Walk to Santiago

Walking the Camino de Santiago, also called Saint James’s Way, allows you to recreate the journey may people made to Santiago. This path was very important to Christians for pilgrimages in the Middle Ages. There were a number of different routes to take depending on where the pilgrims started. Today, Leon is a popular point of departure. Starting there, you’ll be able to take a few weeks to leisurely make your way to Santiago. If you don’t have several weeks for your walking holiday, you can jump ahead and start at Triacastela. That’s one of the best things about Spain walking holidays. They can be tailored to your particular needs.

The Island of Tenerife

Want to get off the mainland? How about talking a walking tour of the Island of Tenerife? This amazing island is located to the south of Spain and is known for Mount Tiede, which is actually the highest mountain in Spain. Tenerife has a wide variety of environments, such as the desert-like beaches in the south and the green, lush forests of the north. Your walking holiday can take you from one to the other as you make your way around the mountain. There are many things to do on the island, so you can customise your route so you get to take in everything you want to see.

The Aragon Region

Finally, there’s the Aragon region. This part of the country lies near the Spanish Pyrenees. It’s one of the areas of Spain where very, very few people live, so you’ll find yourself on your own for much of your walking holiday. That’s not to say that there are no villages at all. You will have places to stay, little cafes to enjoy lunch at, and shops to browse, but don’t expect to come across any large cities here. Instead, you’ll find some great vineyards and small towns that seem to have stepped out of history.
