Top 5 Destinations for Walking Holidays in Spain

Camino de Santiago: One of the most epic walking routes in Spain is the world-famous Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James. This ancient pilgrimage route sprawls across northern Spain, culminating at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. The route is made up of various diverse trails that can take weeks to complete, allowing you to explore the varied landscapes, quaint villages and historic sites along the way. Whichever route you choose to walk, you’re rewarded with gorgeous scenery and cultural insights.

Sierra de Aitana: Nestled in the province of Alicante, the Sierra de Aitana is a rugged mountain range blessed with endemic flora and fauna and imposing views. There are a variety of walking trails suitable for all levels of fitness, ranging from gentle paths through scented pine forests to more difficult routes that wind up to the summit of Aitana peak, the highest point in the range. En route, soak up panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, discover traditional mountain villages and explore hidden caves and waterfalls.

Picos de Europa: Looming above northern Spain, the Picos de Europa rise up from the national park of the same name. The rugged limestone peaks interjected by deep gorges, lush valleys and gin-clear rivers provide a majestic backdrop. The park is home to numerous walking trails that steer you through dramatic scenery where you can look for native wildlife such as golden eagles, chamois and wild boar. Hike along the Cares Gorge, climb to the summit of Naranjo de Bulnes and explore the remote mountain villages.

Andalucia: A diverse melting pot of rugged peaks, rolling hills, olive groves and sandy beaches, Andalucia is a beautiful region perfect for exploring on foot. Hike along breezy coastal paths that lead to secluded coves and mountain trails that snake among traditional white villages to scenic viewpoints. Whether you explore the Sierra Nevada mountains, visit the Alpujarras region or wander through the fragrant orange groves of Seville, Andalucia will captivate you with its natural beauty and rich history.

La Palma: Known as the “Beautiful Island,” La Palma is a hidden treasure filled with unspoilt beauty and unique landscapes. The island is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with diverse ecosystems, including dense forests, volcanic craters and windswept coastlines. Our self-guided adventure leads you along well-marked walking trails through ancient forests of laurel and pine trees, past cascading waterfalls and along dramatic cliffs with panoramic ocean views. Whether you hike the Ruta de los Volcanes, explore the prehistoric rainforest or amble through Santa Cruz Old Town, you’ll be greeted with incredible sights around every twist and turn.

An excellent tour with sensible walks, great food and marvellous sightseeing.

FAQs on Walking Holidays in Spain

What are the 5 most popular walks in Spain?

Home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe, Spain is a popular destination for walking holidays. From dramatic mountains and lush vineyards to verdant valleys, it most definitely deserves its acclaim. Although all our guided and self-guided walking holidays in Spain are equally as spectacular, there are five that tend to be more popular among the hiking crowd.

1. Picos de Europa
Standing within the Cantabrian Mountains, Picos de Europa is wildly beautiful and made up of contrasting landscapes of forested valleys, soaring mountain passes and limestone peaks where wildlife such as Golden eagles, Griffon vultures, wolves, bears and boars are sometimes seen.
2. Camino de Santiago
This ancient pilgrimage trail is a favourite for walkers wanting to delve into the history of Spain and discover traditional rural villages, Gothic cathedrals and historical monasteries.
3. Andalucia
Surrounding the cultural cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada, Andalucia provides the most picturesque scenery for walking holidays in Spain. From rugged hills and pastures strewn with sunflowers to the dramatic Caminito walkway that traverses El Chorro Gorge, there’s no better way to explore than on a walking tour.
4. Mallorca
Away from the busy streets of Palma, there’s a quieter and more peaceful side to Mallorca. Explore the UNESCO protected Tramuntana Mountains, walk through ancient forests where birds of prey circle overhead and soak up coastal panoramas that stretch for miles.
5. Catalonia
Home to medieval villages, idyllic coastline and unspoilt countryside, Catalonia has it all, making it one of the most popular destinations for walking holidays in Spain. Wildlife lovers will be in their element as this region of north-eastern Spain boasts a wealth of flora and fauna.

Why walk Andalucia?

Andalucia boasts magnificent scenery ranging from the dramatic landscapes of Sierra Nevada to the undulating plains of the Guadalquivir valley. But it’s not just its aesthetics that make it such a popular region for hiking holidays in Spain, it’s also steeped in a rich history and brimming with art and Moorish architecture that can be found within the cultural cities. When you walk in Andalucia, you can explore at your own pace, taking in the mesmerising views and stopping off at traditional villages along the way to enjoy the authentic flavours of Andalucian food.

Why book a walking holiday to Spain?

One of the best ways to discover Spain is on foot. Our walking tours in Spain not only introduce you to the main sites, but they also steer you away from the crowds to hidden treasures off the beaten track. Whether you prefer a guided or self-guided holiday in Spain with Exodus, you’re guaranteed outstanding accommodation and carefully crafted routes that bring you closer to the highlights, history and culture. Spain is the perfect destination for a walking trip as it plays host to diverse scenery and wildlife, and the temperate weather can make for pleasant conditions.

Where to go walking in Spain?

Depending on your level of fitness and your interests, there are plenty of options for walking in Spain. While the volcanic island of La Palma and the limestone peaks of the Picos de Europa are perfect for wildlife lovers and seasoned walkers looking for a challenge, the coastal paths that wind above Catalonia’s turquoise bays offer a more leisurely experience. If it’s pretty, flower-strewn landscapes and whitewashed villages that excite you, then Andalucia is the place to go. Alternatively, discover the diversity of Gran Canaria’s rugged mountains and sprawling desert dunes.
