What to expect on a walking tour in Spain
Can I go walking in Spain as a solo traveller?
Our small group walking trips to Spain are ideal for travelling solo, and you’ll be in good company – around half of travellers on our trips are travelling on their own. Our Spanish walking holidays are designed with solo travellers in mind. You’ll meet and socialise with other like-minded holidaymakers, sharing your experiences along the way. If you prefer to travel independently, many of our self-guided walking trips in Spain can be taken as a solo holiday.
When is the best time to go on a walking holiday in Spain?
The best season to go on a walking holiday in Spain is in the ‘shoulder seasons’ spring or autumn.Outside of the hottest months, you can still have warm and sunny days, while the temperatures are more temperate and suited to walking and hiking. The exception is the Canary Islands, where it is still possible to travel between November and February. Usually the months of July and August are too hot for a walking holiday to Spain and are best avoided.
How challenging are walking holidays in Spain?
Our walking and trekking holidays in Spain are graded from Easy through to Moderate, with walking times between two and seven hours a day. When grading walking trips, we take into account the terrain, ascents and descents as well as daily distances covered - check the grading on the trip pages to help choose the right walking holiday for you.

Our accommodation in Spain is of a comfortable standard and well-located for exploring the highlights. Wherever possible, we stay in locally-owned and run Spanish hotels.
What will the food be like on a Spain walking tour?
Spanish cuisine is excellent and varied, and Spain is a perfect holiday destination for foodies. Seafood, gazpacho, paella, tapas - all the signature dishes can be found in abundance but don't miss the chance to try new things, from cordoba to piston and sugary turron.
