The easy to medium daily stages last between two and a half to four hours. This leaves enough time to enjoy the beauty of nature and to explore the culture of the island.

Usher in the New Year in El Hierro: Begin the year at ‘the end of the world’

Unspoiled nature and unique vegetation await you on El Hierro – formerly known as the end of the world. So far, the small Canary Island has been spared from mass tourism and therefore offers a breathtaking backdrop to switch off and enjoy the silence.

The three and a half to six-hour hikes require a certain level of fitness. The efforts are rewarded with spectacular views and extraordinary landscapes.

By the way: on the hikes you traverse four whole vegetation zones…off you go on a hiking trip on El Hierro!

New year in the Algarve: where you can walk in winter

The Algarve in southern Portugal is known for its magical beaches and impressive coastline. For hiking lovers this holiday idyll offers optimal conditions. You can hike from one picturesque fishing village to the next in pleasantly mild temperatures. Let yourself be inspired by Portuguese craftsmanship, such as the production of traditional ceramic tiles and cross numerous citrus and olive groves.

The daily tours take three to four and a half hours and are easy to manage with a bit of basic fitness. Make the most of the good conditions and enjoy the natural beauty of the coast and the Portuguese hospitality.

Lanzarote: New Year’s Eve off the coast of West Africa

Breathtaking scenery with black mountains, red sand and steep cliffs characterise the hike on the ‘fire island’. In addition to the volcanic rock, Lanzarote is shaped by Canarian architecture. The artist César Manrique created beautiful paintings and sculptures of the landscape.

During the tours, you spend between two and three hours on the trails every day. The routes are easy to manage with a bit of basic fitness. The many vineyards are perfect for taking a short rest.

Here is more information about the hiking trip to Lanzarote.

Get a break from the cold of winter and look forward to a multi-faceted turn of the year in the south of Europe!
