WHAT TO DO ON WALKING HOLIDAYS

Stroll through español

Learning a language unlocks a country’s cultural secrets and even if you just want to be able to order the dish of the day or ask for train tickets to the beach, building language learning into a walking holiday in Spain is an absolutely splendid idea.
An organised tour can provide language lessons alongside guided walks with plenty of practical opportunities to test out your newfound skills either on the trail, in the classroom or at the local market, shop or pub.
If you’d prefer to learn Spanish independently then the Michel Thomas method is certainly a good place to start. The best advice is to throw yourself into every situation armed with a phrase book, pen and a smile and you’ll be hablando español in no time at all.

Walk in the shadows of the past

Spain is steeped in Berber and Moorish history thanks, in no small part, to its proximity to northern Africa. Andalucia, especially, is ablaze with North African, Jewish and Roman influence which is why building a few key sites into a walking tour will give you a far deeper understanding as to Spain's connection with the past.
Cordoba, Seville and Granada all hold some incredibly significant places of historic interest as well as numerous museums and architectural styles from where you can learn more about a specific region as you follow in its forefathers’ footsteps.
Art and religion are also intrinsic to Spain’s historic and cultural roots with the works of Gaudi in Barcelona and the Gothic cathedral in Burgos providing just a couple of excuses to step back in time whilst on a walking holiday in Spain.

Walk up an appetite

Learning how to cook in Spain will give you a real insight into the country’s cultural identity as well as letting you feast after a great day spent walking outdoors. Every province will claim that their jamón or queso is the best so find out how you can do it justice by discovering the ingredients and language associated with Spanish cookery.

Capture your walk forever

Walking and photography have long strolled arm in arm and if you’re hoping to combine two passions in one holiday then what better destination than Spain to engulf your enthusiasm. The Picos is paradise for photographers thanks to ethereal ocean mist and ever changing mountain shade whereas further south you'll find the flower filled meadows and snowy summits of Andalucia, simply captivating.
