Top walking destinations in Europe

Italy
Explore ancient trails along the rolling hills of Tuscany and stop for lunch in the medieval town of San Gimignano before sampling delicious local white wine. Go beyond the glitzy facade of trendy boutiques and lose yourself in the maze of white-washed cobbled streets and vibrant bougainvillaea in Capris on the Amalfi Coast, or hike up Europe's highest volcano, Mount Etna, on the island of Sicily.

Spain
Trek through ever-changing landscapes of rocky mountains, verdant valleys, ancient farmland and evergreen forests on a spiritual pilgrimage from Leon to Santiago along the Camino Frances. Or head into the rolling hills of Andalucia to discover age-old trails, shaded olive groves and quaint white-washed villages. The volcanic Canary Islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Gomera are gilded with golden-sand beaches, aquamarine oceans and colourful flora for spectacular walking vistas. And the unspoilt mountain trails of Picos de Europa National Park will take you through wild and sweeping valleys far beyond the beaten track.

Frequently-asked questions about our Walking tours in Europe

What types of walking holidays do you offer in Europe?
We offer three different types of small group walking tours in Europe. The first type of walking trip covers a selection of the best walks or trails in a particular region of Europe; using motorised transport, we travel to different walking locations each day and stay in different places each night. Our point-to-point European hikes take on a more traditional trek or pilgrimage style where you'll walk from one overnight stop to the next. And on our European centre-based walking holidays you'll stay in the same hotel for the duration of the trip and travel to explore different locations by foot each day. We also offer Self-Guided walking trips.

How do your Self-Guided walking trips to Europe work?
Discover the highlights of Europe on foot and at your own pace with our Self-Guided walking trips. We'll look after all of the logistics including itinerary notes and map, accommodation for each night and luggage transfers between each stop so you can explore and travel hassle-free. Follow Portugal's scenic Rota Vicentina walking route along picturesque cliff-top trails, amongst sand dunes and beside rocky shorelines, dare to trek the slopes of Sicily's bubbling Mount Etna in Italy, or ascend to the summit of Pico Ruivo for panoramic views on a walking tour of Madeira.

How challenging are your walking tours in Europe?​
Our walking holidays to Europe vary in difficulty from Easy through to Challenging. We've graded each trip accordingly to help you to choose the best trip for your experience and ability, whether you're an occasional walker or a seasoned hiker. Take a look at our Eastern Algarve Portugal trip or Taste of Italy tour for a gentle introduction to our walking holidays. Or, for more of a challenge, join our Tour du Mont Blanc that takes you on a hike through several countries in the European Alps.

Are your European walking tours suitable for solo travellers?​
Absolutely! All of our small group walking tours to Europe are ideal for those of you who are travelling solo. In fact, almost half of those joining our walking holidays do so alone, so you'll be joining lots of like-minded adventurers on our walking trips. Your local tour guide will also be on hand to support you and make sure you enjoy the journey. Read more about our walking holidays for solo travellers
