European Walking Tours

  • An Image Slideshow

The sunny skies and relaxed pace of life on the Iberian peninsula offer a natural invitation to slow down and smell the flowers. Our trio of walking tours in Portugal, Spain, and the Azores explore some of the most exotic landscapes in southern Europe. You’ll follow a combination of hiking trails, wooded paths, and the occasional country road through tiny villages, ancient forests, and, sometimes, great cities. Each day is full of off-trail delights too: the chance to bargain at a Portuguese market, an ocean swim in the mouth of a submerged Azorean volcano, or sampling mountain-air-cured jamón serrano in Spain’s Alpujarras.
