When is the best time to go walking in Europe?

Do I need a guide, or can I walk independently?

Whether you choose one of our guided or self-guided walking trips depends on personal preferences and experience. Walking independently allows for greater flexibility and the freedom to explore at your own pace. However, when you embark on a guided tour, our knowledgeable guides can enhance your experience by providing valuable insights into the local culture, history and wildlife. Our expert guides also ensure safety and assist with navigation, especially in more remote or unfamiliar areas.

Is Mont Blanc difficult to climb?

Mount Blanc is an immense peak standing at 4,810 metres and is renowned for its majestic allure and challenging nature. Considered one of the most prominent peaks in the world, hikers from around the globe are drawn to conquer its summit. The ascent of Mount Blanc presents numerous obstacles that demand physical endurance and acclimatisation to high altitudes. The variable weather conditions on the mountain also add to the complexity of the climb. However, with adequate training, experience and guidance, skilled climbers can successfully summit Mount Blanc.

How should I prepare for walking in Europe?

Proper planning is essential for a successful walking trip in Europe. Firstly, choose a specific trail or route based on your preferences and fitness level. Research the terrain, weather conditions and local customs and regulations. Invest in a pair of comfortable, well-fitted hiking boots and suitable outdoor clothing to ensure maximum comfort during your walks. It is also important to pack essential items such as a map, compass, first aid kit and sufficient water and food supplies. Lastly, prepare your body by gradually increasing your endurance through regular walking and hiking activities.

What are the benefits of exploring Europe on foot?

Walking trips in Europe offer numerous benefits for travellers. Firstly, walking allows for a deeper connection with nature and the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of landscapes up close. It is also a great way to engage with local communities, as many walking routes pass through traditional villages and towns. Additionally, walking tours in Europe contribute to sustainable tourism by supporting local economies and preserving natural and cultural heritage.

Really enjoyed this hiking trip. Often travelling to Spain but it was the first time for me to experience Sierra de Aitana. Very close to Costa Blanca but felt secluded and peaceful. Hikes are interesting and varied; not very demanding, but i guess this is more of personal view as all depends on person’s fitness and hiking experience (also the weather could be a factor). We started our week with rainy weather but finished with plenty of sunshine. Paths vary, some have lots of scree and stones, some approaches are very rocky…this variety keeps things interesting. I found some hikes were easier in terms of approach than expected but anyway José was always on hand. Hotel is located away from everything and this provides tranquility and peaceful environment…really enjoyable moments sitting on the terrace after hike soaking up beautiful views. Great service from friendly Raquel (the owner) who prepared our tasty meals and provided us with freshly squeezed orange juice. The sandwich lunches were impressive and this comes from someone who is not a sandwich person – freshly prepared with plenty of variety – very tasty and nutritious.
The highlight – hiking in the company of Bobby (the dog).
