Fantastic Winter sun escapes for walkers

Don’t pack away your walking shoes just yet, the walking experts have a selection of fantastic winter sun escapes for walkers. Are you ready?



Breath-taking cliffs, wild sandy beaches and quaint little fishing villages await along the Fishermen’s Trail of the Rota Vicentina in Southern Portugal. A treat for all the senses, combining great food, stunning scenery and great trails. In addition, October is the best month of the year for birdwatching in the area, as migratory birds make their way from Europe back to Africa. You can walk the full trail from Porto Covo to Sagres in 11 days or walk a stretch of the route.

Price: From €563 per person sharing for a 7 night trip, including accommodation, breakfast, luggage transfers and holiday pack with route notes and practical information. More details: Rota Vicentina.



The Canary Islands are the perfect destination for walkers in the winter months. Our new website has a selection of wonderful walking holidays in the islands.

Spend a week in Tenerife exploring on foot the fascinating Teide National Park, the forests surrounding Santiago del Teide and the coastal trails into the picturesque coastal town of Garachico. Our 7-night package ‘Volcanic landscapes of Tenerife’ includes accommodation in boutique hotels and the unique Parador Cañadas del Teide.

Price: From €1040 per person sharing, including airport transfers, accommodation, transfers to the trails and holiday pack with route information. More details: Volcanic landscapes Tenerife.



For Camino fans looking for a sunny route to enjoy in the winter months  we recommend opting for Camino de Santiago trails in Southern Spain and Southern Portugal. For instance, the first section of the Via de la Plata Camino route from the lively city of Seville is best discovered this time of the year.

Walk from Seville, across the Andalusian countryside, over 7 days. Price: From €604 per person sharing, including accommodation, luggage transfers and holiday pack with route information and pilgrim passports. More details: Via de la Plata from Seville.

Other great options include the Camino Mozarabe from Granada to Córdoba (10 days); and the Camino to Fátima in Portugal from the coastal resort of Estoril Cascais to Fátima’s Basilica (10 days).

    Hi Nick, that sounds like a great trip with your daughter. You could walk the full route from Porto to Santiago de Compostela in 2 weeks along the coastal trail: The Camino del Norte is wonderful but a bit longer: Another alternative would be to walk from Ferrol to Santiago and then continue on to Fisterra and Muxia: and Let us know if you require any assistance, an itinerary or quote. Kind regards.

    Hi there this year I’m thinking of doing 10-14 days in the northern Caminos, can anyone advise me of the prettiest section? And maybe not the most strenuous because I’m taking my daughter. We love being near the beach and good food.

    Hi Lynda, we try to accommodate dietary requirements such as vegan and gluten free as much as possible with the hotels we work with. In smaller towns, options might be limited however.

    Is it at all possible to have gluten free vegan diets accommodated on any or all of the Camino routes? Thank you!

    Hi Elizabeth, there are many Camino trails across Europe, you can see a map of the routes we can organise: Most of the packages include an average of 25kms per day. If you have a week, the classic Camino from Sarria or the Camino Portugues from Tui are probably your best options, particulary if this is your first time on the Camino. On those routes it is also possible to have additional stops to walk less kms some of the days. Let us know if you require additional information or a quote. Kindest regards.

    How many different paths are there for the camino trail? Is there a better walk for 20 + days
