Activity holidays in Spain

Return to Travel Guide  /  Home Page

Spain is a really versatile country, offering quite literally something for everyone - no cliche intended!  Whether your interests lie in beach holidays, skiing, mountain climbing or exploring historic cities, you are totally spoiled for choice.

If you are looking for something a little different from the norm, there are some exciting options available all across the country, with everything from cycling, horse riding and walking holidays in Spain, to the more adventurous sports.

Pilgrims, Santiago De Compostela, Galicia, SpainOne famous walking holiday is El Camino de Santiago in Galicia, travelling along the Way of St. James, and staying at pilgrimages and hostels along the way.  There are even tours available these days to cycle the camino, for a little more comfort!  However, if you don't want to make quite that much effort, there are many wonderful walking routes available.

Cycling or walking in the green and lush countryside of Spain can be very rewarding, with opportunities for bird watching, village visits and enjoying the local cuisine.  Andalucía is a great spot for this, with the wonderful white villages or "pueblos blancos", dotted around on hillsides in the area.

Horseriding and pony trekking in the countryside or along the endless sandy beaches can also be very rewarding.  The Sierra Nevada mountain region in Andalucía is ideal for pony trekking in summer. 

Of course in winter, the Sierra Nevada changes its face and becomes an excellent skiiing location.  The snow often stays until quite late into spring, with May 2013 seeing more snowfall, despite the wonderful warm sunny weather at the coast nearby, giving you the opportunity of two different activities in one holiday.

Another popular activity is, of course, golf.  Again, golfers are completely spoiled for choice with excellent, world-class golf courses available throughout the country.  Possibly the coastal locations are the most popular, including the Costa del Sol (nicknamed quite aptly the Costa del Golf), the Costa Brava, Costa Blanca and Costa Almeria.

If you are into mountain climbing, look no further, as Spain is Europe's second-most mountainous country.  You can experience lofty peaks and crags overlooking the sea, along with very demanding climbs or climbs more suitable for beginners, throughout the country.

Whatever your interests there are many activity holidays just waiting for you this summer on the Iberian Peninsula!
