Europe has some of the most incredible Coastal Hiking Trails in the world. Walking one of these unique coastlines brings you in contact with a more secluded side of Europe, away from the larger hiking trails as you explore the natural beauty and unique ecosystems that cling to these coasts. Experience the tranquillity of hiking along towering sea cliffs and secluded bays, through sites of geological wonder. With each country's coastline bringing their share of delightful fishing villages, seaside towns filled with local charm and seafood fresh off the boat.
Hike through Basque Country on the north coast of Spain, from San Sebastián to Lekeitio, experiencing the finest gastronomy in Europe as well as world-class coastal scenery. Take your pick from the classic coastal hikes in Italy, the multi-coloured UNESCO site of the Cinque Terre, or the ultra-chic beauty of the stunning Amalfi Coast. Greece has untamed coastlines well worth exploring, with the stunning coastlines of Corfu and Paxos, or discovering Athens and the wonders of Poros and Hydra. During winter time, the Canary Isles, Azores or Madeira, are a good choice for a sunny walking holiday with the ocean in view.
