Summer freshness on a hiking holiday

Summer is made for long mountain tours or a hiking holiday in cooler climes. When the thermometer indicates temperatures above 30 degrees, mountain breaks are the way to go. In summer, the hiking destinations of Europe reach their peak: everything is in bloom, the sky is clear and evenings can be spent with a glass or two of wine on the hotel terrace. Eurohike has the most beautiful hiking trails to suit every taste. From intensive mountain tours to hiking holidays by the sea or hiking days with cultural highlights – there is something to suit every wish and level of hiking.
