New Year’s Eve hiking in sunny climes

Ring in the new year in Spain and Portugal

Do you want to recover from the stress of Christmas and get away from it all again before the New Year really begins? And at wonderfully pleasant temperatures? Then head to the south of Europe, to Spain’s islands. Hiking fans can ring in the new year in a dreamlike setting. Whether in the varied circular walks on Tenerife, on El Hierro or on the Algarve: you can hardly escape the cold season in a more beautiful way.

If your 2020 new year’s resolution is ‘more exercise!’ then what better way to start than in the first days of the new year!

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!

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!
