Spain

It’s no secret that Spain is one of Europe’s biggest drawcards. From its medieval villages and stylish cities to its sunny coastline, sunbaked vineyards and rugged mountains, this is a country bursting with history, culture and beauty.

Walk or cycle Europe's most iconic pilgrimage trail, the Camino de Santiago; tour the country’s traditional villages, medieval castles and historic cities; or trek among the jagged peaks and magnificent alpine scenery of the Picos de Europa.

Cycle from the seaside at Biarritz to the heart of the Basque Country; hike the Camino Norte, following one of the original Santiago pilgrimage routes between San Sebastian and Bilbao; or head to the exotic Mallorca and Canary Islands to walk through cloud forests, beneath volcanoes and along rugged sea cliffs.

Explore Catalonia by bike, following Dali and Gaudi’s inspiration as you cycle between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean; and discover Spain’s incredible cuisine in bustling markets and Michelin-starred restaurants on our Food Lover's series of guided culinary journeys.

Then head south to Andalucía, the passionate heart of Spanish culture, to hike the Alpujarras, savour tapas and flamenco and to marvel at the beauty of the Alhambra in the sensual Moorish city of Granada.

Whichever trip you choose, this stunning country is sure to captivate and leave you wanting more. Take a look at our unique self-guided and small group guided walking, hiking and cycling journeys and start planning your Spanish adventure!


 

Explore our unrivalled range of active trips in Spain

From the trails of the Camino to the whitewashed villages in Andalucia and the peaks of the Picos to the island coastlines of Majorca, we offer more dedicated walking and cycling trips in Spain than anyone.

Making Spain affordable

Trips only include what you need like accommodation, meals, bikes on cycle trips, luggage transfers, maps and route directions on self guided trips and an experienced local guide for group trips, as well as the peace of mind that comes with complete backup and support.

Designing a Camino walk for everyone

Whether you prefer to focus on the food or history, are keen to cycle or want to complete the entire length of the Camino, we offer a trip along the Camino for everyone.

See Spain and the Camino at your own pace

On all self guided trips, both along the Camino and throughout Spain, you can expect to receive up-to-date and well researched route notes and maps, seamless luggage transfers and competitive pricing on all essential services. Many self guided trips also have daily departure dates, allowing you to enjoy the convenience and flexibility a self guided trip offers.

Enjoy flexibility and choices

Cycling or walking, 2 star or 4 star, small groups or self guided, land or sea - we can help you explore Europe exactly the way you want.

Travel with experienced mountain guides

Our guided walks in the mountain regions of Italy are led by bilingual, experienced professionals who know the region well. Every guide is first-aid trained and carry appropriate communication devices with them in case of an emergency.


 

Reducing waste

Our Waste Management Policy encourages our travellers to take their own reusable water bottles, coffee cups and reusable stuff sacks to avoid single use plastics. In the mountains of the Pyrenees and Mont Blanc our local partners reduce the amount of packaging taken on tour and ensure all waste is carried out from refuges that do not have road access to help dispose of it properly.

Supporting local

In the regions that we travel tourism is the main source of income for many local people. We support them by only working with local family run hotels and suppliers so your money supports the community that hosts you.

Paddock to Plate

The paddock to plate across Europe is one we encourage by choosing to work with accommodations that source produce from local farms. This provides you with fresher meals and ensures your money directly assists local economies.


Hotels

Often family run, these charming hotels range from 2 to 4 stars and provide access to local living thanks to your hosts. The hospitality is generous and their local knowledge is invaluable. Where possible, we choose locations that add to your experience.

Agriturismi

These 'farm stay' style accommodations are found on independently owned working farms. You can expect fantastic local flavours at meal time from your hosts.

Farmhouse B&Bs

Live like a local on a farm, or purpose-built farm. Rooms are clean, comfortable, usually have a pleasant outlook and rooms vary as to whether they include an en suite bathroom or shared facilities.

Guesthouses

Similar to bed & breakfasts, these family-owned accommodations are clean and comfortable. Rooms with en suites generally have a shower but no bath due to space. There may be a separate room with a bath tub.


A custom made itinerary is the ultimate way to see the world how YOU want.
