The autumn and spring seasons can produce excellent walking weather in these southerly latitudes, and Malta offers a rich variety of country walking and ancient buildings.
The autumn and spring seasons can produce excellent walking weather in these southerly latitudes, and Malta offers, a rich variety of country walking and ancient buildings.
Its central position in the Mediterranean has made the island a hub of history, from the landing of St Paul, through the times of the Knights of St John to the modern epic of Gallant Malta. The plaque awarding the island the George Cross, and the list of sunken ships in Fort Angelo can be seen in Valletta, whose Grand Harbour is indeed very impressive!
The cultural mix makes Malta unique: its language is based on Arabic, but English is widely spoken and you will feel oddly at home here with its traditional buildings, generous melange of Victorian frontages and other British touches.
This walking holiday starts in Malta and continues on Gozo. Our walks cross farmland, steep valleys, terraced fields and table-top hills and contrast the two islands.
Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain.
Most of these holidays have an element of sightseeing as well.
Half day walks will probably involve about 3 hours of walking, with full day walks having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m.
