Numerous active guests were able to experiece for themselves how marvellous hiking on the most beautiful islands in Europe is this year. The mild climate and the soothing rays of sunshine, the natural Mediterranean sceneries and the fresh sea breeze – these are the ingredients from which our self-guided island hiking tours are made. The Balearic island of Mallorca has been a top travel destination for sun-seeking hikers for many years. No wonder, since the island in the Mediterranean not only offers well-developed hiking trails and varied routes, but also provides the perfect time-out in the South every year featuring stupendous nature and marvellous culinary delights.
Just as spectacular and a little further South is another popular travel destination for our hiking guests – the exotic flower island of Madeira. A total of 1000 kilometres away from mainland Europe, this Portuguese island world is a true paradise for all active travellers who appreciate hiking in the mountains amidst an extraordinarily diverse flora and fauna. Added to this are the hospitable locals and the delicious island cuisine, which harmoniously round off the hiking adventure. From Madeira to Mallorca – island hiking will be the absolute top hiking trend in 2022.
