Our Spanish Holidays
Fuerteventura’s year round sunshine and an average temperature of 20 degrees centigrade, its equable dry climate, coastal walking, and endless remote beaches make it the perfect destination for activity holidays.
Unmentioned in any of the guide books for Southern Spain, the Andalucian town of Competa is truly a hidden gem. Ideally situated, there's a good network of footpaths, passing olive groves and valleys of orchards. Many paths and tracks give us a good mix of short and long walks into the hills.
West of Africa is the attractive island of Gomera. First glimpses from the boat on its 90 minute journey from Los Cristianos in Tenerife to Gomera suggest that the island is barren and deserted, but you soon realise that the extraordinary fertility of the main islands is here also.
An exhilarating and enjoyable higher-graded walking holiday in Andorra. The scenery is beautiful and the upper mountain slopes and ridges are a rambler's paradise. During May to July the flora peculiar to the Pyrenees is excellent.
One week guided walking holiday in Majorca. Enjoy spring and autumn rambles from our base in Puerto de Soller. We’ll walk both on the coast and in the mountainous hinterland. This area of Majorca offers a great variety of scenery and difficulty of terrain. We can see Puig Mayor (1400m) and Teix, the two highest peaks of the west coast Sierra de Tramuntana range.
On this cruise we don’t quite reach the Tropics, but the mild climate of the Azores, Madeira and the Canaries is a welcome contrast to a northern European winter. Add to that a dash of Iberia and a taste of Morocco and you have a very pleasant way to build up to Christmas.
An expert's hand is clearly visible in the planning of our birdwatching and walking holiday to two fantasticaly diverse birding sites located in western Spain. With both sites located amongst established walking areas, we have combined great birding and walking country with a touch of Roman and Spanish culture for good measure.
Between León and Santiago de Compostela is the Spanish continuation of our perennially popular Route St Jacques holiday. Pilgrim feet have passed over these trails for a thousand years, their journey culminating in an embrace of the statue of St James.
Weekend walking became more important than a corporate career in management for Julian, so he quit and qualified as a full time tour leader for Ramblers Worldwide Holidays. He believes that it's the best way to discover and observe the world and meet like minded people.
Julian is now one of our Nordic Walking Instructors and looks forward to showing you his technique in 2013.
