Hiking is so good for us in winter
Let's take a look at our hiking calendar – slowly but surely the cooler season is coming in. However, this does not mean that we must do without hiking. In the more southerly climes, this quiet season is the perfect time for a relaxed hiking holiday, completely away from the tourist crowds. Now you can enjoy the soothing moments on the hiking paths in many regions of Europe even more intensively and may even perceive them a little more consciously. Individual exercise in the fresh air, the scent of the woods, maybe even a sea breeze and the opportunity to get to know the country and its people even better – that sounds like a healthy active holiday. Find out here where you can experience all of this in the winter months!
Clearly, Spain is great for hiking all year round. The Canary Islands in particular offer perfect conditions for hiking in winter. Whether on the mountain hiking holiday El Hierro, 8 days or a hiking holiday Hiking Paradise Tenerife, 8 days – the mild temperatures and the pleasant sea air are your faithful companions. The volcanic island of Lanzarote is also known for its warm weather and plenty of sunshine. In winter the temperatures can reach up to 21 degrees here, wonderful prerequisites for our hiking holiday Lanzarote, 8 days. On mainland Spain, too, stable temperatures ensure that in December or January you can experience the hiking holiday Camino de Santiago „Camino Francés“, 8 days.
Have you ever been to Portugal? No? Then maybe winter is the perfect time to get to know this beautiful country on a hiking holiday. Explore the picturesque Atlantic coast on our moderate hiking holiday Algarve Hiking Rally, 8 days. On this hiking tour based in one hotel you will spend the entire stay in the same accommodation – a particularly charming hotel in a quiet location above Tavira and only a few minutes' walk from the old town. During circular hikes you can discover the region of Cacela Velha & Cabanas, Vila Real de Santo António, the fishing village of Fuzeta and the island of Tavira. The island of Madeira is a real pearl in the Atlantic. This island not only offers wonderfully beautiful flora, it is also the ideal travel destination for a pleasant, active holiday in winter. Madeira has mild temperatures all year round, perfect conditions for active exercise in the fresh air. On the mountain hiking holidays Around Madeira, 8 days and the mountain hiking holidays Around Madeira with Charm, 8 days you hike from Porto da Cruz to Sao Vicente on the north coast, to the high plateau and cloud forest in Porto Moniz, to the coastal town of Calheta and to Funchal – the island's capital. On these tours in Portugal you are guaranteed to recharge your batteries to face the winter temperatures back home.
Even in winter we can still enjoy Italy. On our hiking holiday from Verona to Lake Garda, 8 days you can enjoy the beautiful hiking paths in Italy, the wonderful cuisine and the typical Italian flair even in the winter months. All the nicer when you can experience this break with your four-legged friend, because this active holiday is also wonderfully suitable for hiking with your dog. For all active holidaymakers who are hungry for exercise and who prefer a break along the impressive coastal regions, we have just the right thing: the hiking holiday Collioure - Cadaquès, 7 days. Here you can explore the Catalan coast, the idyllic bays and the wonderful views of the surrounding mountains in pleasant temperatures even in winter.
