Camino de Santiago Trek, Spain

Trace the footsteps of Christian pilgrims as you follow scallop shell markers along the iconic Camino-Frances trail in Spain. Start your walking tour in Samos and trek through gently undulating countryside, across rural farmland and around medieval villages towards your final destination; the magnificent cathedral of Santiago. 2021 is a Holy Year, a rare occasion when St Jacob's Day falls on a Sunday. The next one won't be until 2027, so grab the opportunity to enter the Puerta del Perdón door (Door of Forgiveness) at this momentous time.

Walking in South-West Crete, Greece

Greece's largest island, Crete, offers a variety of landscapes to explore on this moderately-paced self-guided walking trip. Ascend the towering crests of the White Mountains and wander along Europe's longest canyon, Samaria Gorge. Panoramic views stretch over steep hillsides cloaked in verdant forest, and the rocky river bed leads you to the peaceful seaside village of Agia Roumeli. End the day with a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear Libyan Sea and enjoy freshly made mezze in a traditional Greek tavern.

Walk in Sicily and the Aeolian Islands, Italy

As you edge your way closer to the summit and peer over the edge of Europe's highest active volcano, Mount Etna, your heartbeat quickens. This is just one of three active volcanoes you'll have the chance to explore on this self-guided walking holiday around the Italian Aeolian Islands. And a variety of walks around the Lipari will reveal picturesque scenes of pristine sandy beaches, ice-white pumice caves and luminescent turquoise waters.

Walking in Madeira, Portugal

From mossy Levada trails to sky-high clifftop passes, Portugal's island of Madeira offers plenty of scenic routes to explore on this self-guided European walking holiday. A highlight of the trip takes you to the peak of Pico Ruivo at 1862 metres above sea level. Follow undulating trails along rocky gullies, pass through dark tunnels, and watch your step as you shuffle along narrow paths suspended on a vertical cliff edge. As you break through the clouds and reach the summit, the sunbeams over forested peaks stretching towards the horizon, and the azure-blue Atlantic Ocean glistens in the distance.

Lycian Way West, Turkey

Uncover golden sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters and secluded bays on a self-guided walking trip heading west along the coastal trails of the Lycian Way in Turkey. Endemic butterfly flutter amongst lush vegetation in the fjord-like valley of Faralya and wafts of sweet lavender float in the warm breeze. Fragrant pine forests cast cool shadows over trails leading to the shores of Patara Beach, and the ruins of an ancient theatre and crumbling columns take you back in time to a grand bygone era.

Coastal Trails of Portugal

Set off at your own pace to explore the windswept sandy beaches and craggy limestone cliffs of south-west Portugal on our self-guided European hiking tour along the walking trails of Rota Vicentina. Rustic white-washed villages boast eclectic boutique shops, and alfresco restaurants entice you to sample the local speciality; a tasty feast of grilled sardines seasoned with salt. Amble amongst sand dunes and admire panoramic vistas of aquamarine Atlantic Ocean as you immerse yourself in this lesser-known region of the Algarve.

Walking Gran Canaria, Spain

Vast volcanic plains, azure-blue ocean and jagged mountain ridges dominate the landscape of this self-guided hiking holiday on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria. Following dusty trails across the island's interior, you'll uncover fertile ravines and concaved caldera valleys. A trek to Pico de las Nieves, Gran Canaria's highest peak, reveals far-reaching views over the neighbouring Canary Islands and a zig-zag path from Barranco de Tejeda leads you to the mysterious UNESCO-listed Roque Bentayga.
