Spanish Nordic Walking Holidays

Welcome

 The Natural Parc Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche

Where do I start to explain what a beautiful area this and why I have been creating Nordic Walking Holidays since 2015.

This specific area is ideal for Nordic Walking with it's wonderful "Senderos" that link the small villages together. The paths offer good shade with the Cork and Holm Oak trees that line our routes and ancient farmlands that have worked this area for centuries. Olive groves, chestnut groves and their Iberian pig that welcome us along.

The Culture with festivals of flowers and food that is nowhere like anywhere else is such an added bonus that makes these holidays unique. We are always welcomed by the Spanish people who just make us feel at home and keep us wanting to return for me.

If you are looking for a peaceful walking holiday away from the usual tourist spots this is an ideal place.

Come an join us on a Nordic Walking Adventure
