Great varied walk, good group. Miguel-the guide-was the best ever. Weather was good too

Jennifer Nash Walking in Andalucia

This holiday was both challenging and exhilarating. The scenery was spectacular and the weather perfect for walking in February. We had clear and careful guidance from our guide before and during the walks which probably helped the group to gain most from the experience (different goals for members of the group) Our guide, Jose, loved his local area and was able to add a lot of information and was very supportive of all.

FAQs on Hiking Tours

What should I pack for my trek?

From hiking shoes and socks to waterproof jackets and breathable layers, you’ll want to ensure that you bring all the appropriate clothing and essentials for your hiking vacation. Be sure to check the essential information on your trip’s itinerary for details on the weather and activities on your trip as a starting place, and don’t forget your sunscreen!

How do I prepare for a hiking vacation?

If you’re gearing up for your first hiking vacation, you’re in for an unforgettable experience, but to ensure your journey is as enjoyable as it is memorable, proper preparation is key. Pay attention to the activity level rating of your trip when you are booking so that you can understand approximately how far you will be hiking each day, as well as the elevation of the walks. This will give you a useful benchmark for your training.

In the weeks and months leading up to your trip, increase your daily activity level and embark on long walks, wearing the kit that you plan to wear on your tour so that you can get used to things like the weight of your backpack and thoroughly break in your boots. Increase your core exercises and ramp up your cardio to help with your trail endurance. Check out our fitness guide for more advice on the physical preparation needed for your active tour.

What should I wear on a hike?

Your hiking outfits will depend on the climate of your destination and the season of your visit, so make sure you check your itinerary for detailed advice on what you should expect. Regardless of your destination, you’ll need sturdy walking boots with good ankle support are essential, as well as appropriate socks to reduce rubbing.

If warm weather is expected, a sun hat, sunglasses and appropriate clothing, such as shorts and t-shirts made from breathable materials, will be essential. Keep in mind that hotter climates, such as those in deserts, can plunge to chilly temperatures at night, so be sure to bring layers, particularly if you are camping. A raincoat is also recommended.

You should also consider whether your destination requires a more conservative dress code. Many of our walking tours integrate cultural activities that may require a shawl or headscarf.

If you’re headed to a snowy destination, you’ll need a warm hat or headband, and a neckwarmer. We recommend two pairs of gloves, with one waterproof pair. Be sure to remember sunglasses, as the sunlight reflecting from the snow can be very intense!

Where should I go on a hiking tour?

From coastal hikes and desert treks to wildlife walks and snowshoeing, the world has endless opportunities for adventure. Whether you are looking for walking vacations in Europe, hoping to explore Asia on your own two feet, or dreaming of a South American expedition, we have incredible itineraries available that are perfect for you.

What will my group be like on my trek?

On our guided group hiking trips, you’ll be in a group of 8 to 16 people. A large proportion of our hiking trips are made up of solo travelers, creating a great opportunity to make friends with like-minded people from around the world.
