Useful information about your cycle tour in Spain

Spain's climate

The climate in Spain is as diverse as the country itself. But for a Eurohike hiking holiday, the climatic conditions offer wonderful conditions and pleasant temperatures all year round. And did you know that the climate on the Canary Islands - especially Tenerife - is one of the healthiest climates in the world? On our hiking tours through the interior of the country or on the islands of the Balearic or Canary Islands, you can see this for yourself and do something good for both your body and mind.

The Spanish cuisine

Each region has its own culinary treasures, which in turn combine to create an enjoyable interplay of local influences. Food is eaten late in Spain: there is only a small, uncomplicated breakfast with coffee and pastries. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. it's "siesta": this break is used to go home, switch off and have lunch in peace before dinner at around 9 p.m.. The varied cuisine includes delicious dishes such as stews with pulses, lots of fresh vegetables, meat and ham, fish and seafood, cheese, olive oil and heavenly desserts - accompanied by delicious regional wines.

Tapas: Mussels and grilled octopus with aioli

Spain's culture and traditions

The everyday life of the Spanish people perfectly reflects the Mediterranean way of life. Appointments are kept a little more flexible, people take time to chat and, as fiery as some compatriots may seem, the start to the day is just as cosy. And what would Spain be without its characteristic symbols and traditions, which are firmly associated with the country: These include the famous art form and one of the most important cultural assets - flamenco, a combination of music and dance from Andalusia.
