The walks were stunning, challenging in part , and gave a good flavour of Liguria and its dramatic coastline. We had a brilliant Group whom all got on well and enjoyed each others company and support whilst sharing the experience of the walks and the restaurants we used in the evenings, the optional trip to Lucca was outstanding as was the coastal ferry from Porto Venere which should become a fixture on the Exodus itinerary

I can’t fault anything about the holiday. The accommodation was good, the staff friendly and helpful, the meals excellent and my dietary needs catered for. The added bonus was the swimming pool at the end of a hot day’s hiking. Our group was small and the majority of us got on amazingly well together. The walks were varied and interesting with the chance to visit several villages along the way.

What is the most famous hiking trail in Spain?

The most famous hiking trail in Spain is the Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James. This historic pilgrimage route has been traveled by pilgrims for over a thousand years, leading to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, where the remains of the apostle St. James are said to be buried.

The Camino de Santiago is renowned not only for its religious significance but also for its cultural heritage, scenic beauty, and sense of camaraderie among pilgrims from all over the world. Hikers on the Camino encounter a wealth of historical landmarks, including medieval churches, Roman bridges, and charming rural landscapes, making it a truly unforgettable journey.

What is the best month to hike in Spain?

The best months for hiking in Spain are typically spring (April to June) and fall (September to November) due to milder temperatures and fewer crowds. Spring offers blooming wildflowers and lush greenery, with comfortable temperatures during the day and cooler evenings. Autumn brings vibrant foliage and pleasant hiking conditions as temperatures begin to cool. Note that there are some regional differences in the climate– while southern Spain can be scorching hot in summer, mountainous areas like the Pyrenees or Picos de Europa may offer cooler temperatures, even in the summer months.

Where should I go hiking in Spain?

Depending on your level of fitness and your interests, there are plenty of options for hiking 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 above Catalonia’s turquoise bays offer a more leisurely experience. If it’s pretty, flower-strewn landscapes and whitewashed villages that excite you, then Andalucía is the place to go. Alternatively, discover the diversity of Gran Canary’s rugged mountains and sprawling desert dunes.

What can I expect on a hiking tour in Spain?
