 Walking Holidays in Greece - Crete Greece - Crete - Multi-Centred

Western Crete has long been a favourite destination for British walkers with many returning year after year to savour this very unspoilt part of the island.  The region offers spectacular, contrasting scenery. The White Mountains, dotted with remote mountain villages, rise to over 2,400m providing some challenging walks for the experienced.  Radiating from these mountains are numerous gorges running down to the sea, the most renowned being the Samaria Gorge and many lesser known gorges to explore. Undoubtedly the sea is one of Crete’s main attributes and coastal paths are enhanced by the Libyan Sea with shades of blue extending from the clearest pale turquoise to deep indigo blue. It’s a destination where the people are as pleasant as the weather and the delicious locally produced foods (a haven for vegetarians by the way).

Few places can match the natural beauty of the Canary Islands where one of the islands Tenerife has become a mecca for enthusiastic walkers. Tenerife is an island of contrasts from the volcanic moonscapes of the Teide National Park to the high cliffs ridges and deep valleys of the coastal mountain ranges. The island boasts the highest mountain in Spain, Teide, at 3718m. Due to its southern latitude its slopes can be walked for most of the year. The coastal ranges of Anaga and Teno rise abruptly from the sea. Teno hosts the giant and dramatic sea cliffs of Los Gigantes (610m). Anaga has steep mountain ridges offering magnificent views across the ever present Atlantic Ocean. Midway between the two is the Orotava Valley with its pine clad slopes. All of this is well away from the crowded tourist resorts for which Tenerife is renowned.

 Walking Holidays in Switzerland Switzerland -  Lower Engadine

The Lower Engadine is one of the most popular destinations for the Swiss to take their holidays, which must say something when they have such a choice. It is surprisingly not so well known to walkers from overseas. This area is the heartland of Switzerland’s fourth official language – Romansch which will often be heard especially in the small villages. However Swiss German is spoken by everyone and English as in other areas of Switzerland is widely spoken. A different language brings different culture, architecture and culinary specials all unique to the Romansch speaking area. The River Inn flows through the valley on its way to the Danube, alternately flowing though deep gorges and wide open meadowland grazed by bell ringing cows. The area is also host to Switzerland’s only National Park.
