    Top 5 Walks in Europe

    Top 5 Walks in Europe
    Top 5 Walks in Europe

    Europe is a continent of many, vastly different landscapes and climates. From the warm Mediterranean to, dark forests in Germany and dramatic cliffs in Scotland. Therefore choosing the best location to walk in isn’t always that easy, you are spoilt for choice! Ask yourself what you want from the holiday, are you looking for a sunny warm climate, or a bracing, dramatic experience?

    Either way, here is a selection of some of the best walks in Europe:

    Hadrian’s Wall. In the North East of England, Hadrian’s wall is one of the UKs many World Heritage Sites. Walking the full length of the wall will take about 5 – 6 days but there are many places to stay along the way and many pubs to sample the local ale in!

    The Loire Valley. The Loire Valley in France is an exceptionally beautiful area and this is a very comfortable walk with many places to stay along the way. It is no wonder that it is known as the garden of France with numerous World Heritage Sites along the way. Most of the tracks are paved and there are several notable attractions along the way including the lovely town of Azay-le-Rideau.

    The Knoydart Peninsula. This is a walk for those who enjoy exploring rugged and remote places. It is a unique place as it is part of Scottish mainland yet can only be accessed by the sea. On the peninsula there is also Scotland’s most remote pub, making the walk all the more worthwhile!

    Swiss Alpine Pass. This is Switzerland’s classic hike, crossing 16 mountain passes and taking 18-20 days it is one for the fit only, although you can cheat slightly using chairlifts and other modes of transport in places. The weather can be changeable and the terrain rough but the vistas are stunning, as you would expect. When you complete it you can also brag that you have walked across Switzerland.

    Besalu to Olot. In Catalonia, Spain there are some of the best cliff edge walks in the world. This route will take you from the beautiful medieval town of Besaul all the way to Olot. Along the way are some spectacular cliff edge walks with drops of up to 500m all against the back drop of dramatic volcanoes. It’s not all cliffs though, as you will walk through some stunning meadows and pastures, with plenty of places to stop for the delicious local cuisine along the way.
