Welcome to the real Spain…
It is said that, if you walk a mile in another man’s shoes, you know how they feel. This is true of both our walking and cycling holidays – when you travel slowly, with the express purpose of exploring your surrounds on foot or by bike, you discover every inch of the place.
Breakaway’s Spain offers some fantastic walking and cycling – largely due to its diverse natural beauty, cultural heritage, temperate climate and friendly people who welcome visitors as they would long lost family.
Here are just some reasons to consider a holiday in Spain this year:
The great Moorish cities of Andalucia need little introduction, and our Highlights of Andalucia tour combines these “must see” sights with off-the-beaten-track white villages, hidden hamlets and abandoned cortijos. You’ll visit Seville’s stunning Alcazar, Cordoba’s Mezquita and the world-famous Alhambra palace in Granada, arguably the most beautiful city in Europe.
Southern Spain is well known for its lemon groves and orange orchards – some of the world’s finest oranges come from Valencia. Top walking choices here include Secrets of Andalucia, Vistas of Valencia and Hidden Valleys of Cordoba.
In the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, you’ll find eagles, hoopoes, griffon vultures – and some of the largest trout in southern Europe! There are wonderful views too from the shattered limestone peaks – even out to Gibraltar and as far as northern Africa on a clear day.
With over 200 species of birds, the Canary Islands are an ornithologist’s paradise! You’ll spot Barbary falcons, ravens, buzzards, sweet-singing yellow canaries and Berthelot’s Pipits – endemic to these islands.
