Mountain Walking Holidays in Europe

Our Top 3 Mountain Walking Holidays

For as long as man has lived, we’ve had a fascination with mountains. The famous English poet, William Blake, once wrote that “great things are done when men and mountains meet” and even to this day, those words seem to be just as fitting as they were when he scribed in the 1700’s. From residing on their slopes to climbing their peaks, we’ve pretty much done everything when it comes to mountains. Nothing beats enjoying them in your own time though, at a leisurely pace that allows you to take in everything they have to offer. The sights, the smells and the sounds. There really is nothing else like them. That’s why we offer a full range of mountain walking holidays right across Europe, from climbing the heights of Mallorca to enjoying the views from the High Tatras Mountains in Poland. We’ve even highlighted a few of our favourite mountain hiking holidays below.

 

Poland Mountain Walking Holidays

One of the first mountain holidays we wanted to tell you about was our walking holiday to the Krakow and Beskidy Mountains. With spectacular limestone mountain ranges, you can explore the unique landscape of the Carpathians while passing through charming villages, scenery and primeval forest. There is even a chance for you to visit ancient monasteries and visit the old town of Stary Sacz. It’s charming market square and historic houses are a must-visit! That’s all before you end your walking holiday in the popular city of Krakow. Luckily for you, that’s not all Poland has to offer either, with our weekend in the Tatras walking holiday a great one to choose if you’re a beginner to these kinds of tours. Chamois, marmots and even brown bears call this unique area home, with a wide variety of rock formations creating a spectacular sight for as far as the eye can see. You’ll even stay over in the world-famous spa town of Zakopane, which is better described as picture postcard perfect. The scenery is simply breath-taking and makes this a mountain hiking holiday of a lifetime.

From Mulhacen in Sierra Nevada to Teide in Tenerife, Spain has plenty to offer, but few can compare to the beauty of our Mallorca walking holiday. Our self-guided tour gets you up close and personal with everything that this beautiful Balearic Island has to offer from picturesque coves and rocky cliffs, to stunning, unspoilt landscape.
