Walking holidays in the north of Europe

Hiking in Northern Europe

Discover the northern regions by foot

Can you hike in summer, despite the warm temperatures? It’s definitely easier in the more northerly climes. When summer arrives in the southern latitudes, this is exactly the right time to take a hiking holiday in the north. At this time of year there are wonderfully pleasant temperatures in the northern areas, which are exactly the right basis for a successful break in nature. Whether in Rügen in Northern Germany, Ireland, Great Britain, Sweden or Norway – when hiking in these countries you can enjoy a wonderfully cool breeze even in summer. So let’s head up to Northern Europe, to hike, explore and enjoy – on a hiking holiday with luggage transfer.

Wonderful Walks Rugia

Lighthouse at Kap Arkona

On our walking holiday Wonderful Walks Rugia, 8 days, the wonderful natural landscapes, lime coasts and national parks in Northern Germany beckon. How can you best experience this in summer? On foot, of course! In eight days you hike the most beautiful routes on the largest, and at the same time sunniest, island in Germany. Rügen is an ideal travel destination, especially in the summer months, and a wonderfully pleasant sea breeze also ensures ideal conditions for hiking. You start your hiking holiday in Stralsund, explore the island of Hiddensee and spend the night on the Wittow Peninsular. After a circular hike on the 43-metre-high cliffs of Cape Arkona, you continue to Sassnitz and finally to Binz/Sellin. During your circular hike through the Baltic resort of Göhren, wonderful views of the coast and the sea are your loyal companions. On the last day, the route takes you back to Stralsund. This hiking holiday is a must for all Baltic Sea fans!

  • Would you like to experience this hiking holiday together with your four-legged friend? Due to the good route, this trip can also be booked as a hiking holiday with a dog.

West Highland Way

Hiker at Loch Tulla in Inveroran

Unbeatable views and the rugged nature of Scotland await you on our mountain hiking holiday on the West Highland Way, 10 days in Great Britain. Especially in summer, this active holiday on the oldest long-distance trail in Scotland, and at the same time one of the most popular in Europe, offers a wonderful change. Although this trail is a real highlight among hiking fans, you are sure to experience countless moments of tranquility amid untouched nature. It goes from Milngavie to Drymen and Rowardennan. Our tip: Don’t miss out on a good glass of whisky from one of the local distilleries. On to Inverarnan and Crianlarich. The hiking route takes you on idyllic forest paths to the Hotel Inveroran, the day’s place to stay in the middle of the Scottish Highlands. You then hike to the Kingshouse, the former trading post and on the following day past the most impressive mountain ridge in the country, the Buachaille Etive Mòr, to the village of Kinlochleven. With a hike to the small town of Fort William you end your holiday in Scotland and can look back on your wonderful hiking experience filled with great moments.

Charming landscape in Sweden

Österlenleden

Lots of soothing moments of calm and deceleration – what’s known as hygge – await you in summer on our hiking holiday Österlenleden, 8 days. In eight days and six stages you hike part of the 1,300 kilometre-long long-distance hiking trail ‘Skåneleden’ on the Österlenleden and thus the most beautiful places on Sweden’s coast. Starting from Ystad, the hiking tour heads along the coast to Kåseberga and the next day to Skillinge. The following day too, there is always a cool breeze blowing as the trail takes you over sea-side meadows and through quiet fishing villages until you reach your destination of Simrishamn. The next day’s stage to Kivik is no less impressive: a multi-faceted natural backdrop and picturesque sandy beaches are your loyal companions. Haven’t tried fika yet? Then don’t miss the well-known Swedish coffee break with a famous ‘Kanelbullar’, a delicious cinnamon roll, as you complete the last two stages to Brösarp and finally to Alunbruket. Do you already feel your personal hygge? After this hiking holiday in Sweden, you will know this particularly calm, happy and cosy way of life.
