Why choose a walking and hiking holiday?
Always wanted to see flamingos in the wild? Birds of prey gliding in the updrafts? Deer grazing on alpine pastures? It’s all possible on a walking holiday in Europe.
Soak up the view
Walk this way to discover miles of unspoiled landscapes, the perfect vantage point to watch the sunset, and secluded spots to unfurl your picnic rug.
Wide open spaces
Walking holidays take you away from busy towns, crowded beaches and bustling resorts and into fresh air, open countryside and spectacular scenery.
Best regions for walking and hiking holidays
Whether you’re looking for your next challenge or you’re looking to explore at a more leisurely pace, we’ve got parcs in perfect spots.
Wander between vineyards, walk among wildlife in the forests or roam alongside rivers. These regions pack plenty of treats to discover on low-intensity walking trails.
It’s no surprise that the Loire has been called the Garden of France. Its walking routes take you past wineries, chateaux, historic villages and stunning countryside. The landscape is smooth, making it perfect for gentle strolls.
Hillier than the Loire but not as steep and rocky as the Pyrenees, the Dordogne promises breathtaking views for all, whatever your walking ability. Enjoy languid days sauntering along the river or exploring the surrounding forest.
Add an extra dose of adventure to beach days by following coastal footpaths around rugged clifftops, discovering hidden coves and beaches only accessible by foot.
Walk in the footsteps of 19th Century customs officers patrolling Brittany’s 2000km long coastline. The GR34 hiking trail takes you all the way from Mont-St-Michel to Saint Nazaire, via the Pink Granite Coast and non-stop sea views.
Aromatic pine trees to the west, iridescent waters to the east. Costa Brava’s footpaths connect coast and country, taking you through miles of untamed landscape and rocky shores. And there are plenty of secluded beaches to discover too.
Reach Europe’s most impressive peaks and its most remote locations on a hiking holiday in the mountains.
Switzerland’s rugged terrain, unspoiled beauty and glimmering glacial waters attract walkers from around the world. Steep mountain paths and snow-covered tops will challenge confident hikers, but the panoramic views are well worth the effort.
With 28 mountains to explore, the French Alps are a paradise for intrepid hikers. Wander away from the ski resorts and you’ll find mile after mile of untamed nature. You might even meet an ibex or mountain goat along your way!
