Spain Travel Guide
Even after many trips to the Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Asturias, and Cantabria, it still feels impossible to describe a country that is so vast and diverse in terms of geography and culture.
Of all the places we’ve visited, Picos de Europa National Park in Northern Spain has captivated us the most. This protected area in Asturias, Cantabria, and León comprises the awe-inspiring Picos de Europa Mountains, a limestone mountain range dissected by gorges.
Picture-perfect Mallorca, the seventh largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, is famous for its pine-fringed beaches and mountain villages. In spring and fall, we recommend hiking in the Tramuntana Mountains and following this Mallorca road trip.
It would be remiss of me not to mention the rugged Canary Islands, the Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa.
This winter sun destination attracts all types. But, we can assure you that these islands offer superb hiking and tremendous scenery. Tenerife boasts the highest mountain in Spain, El Teide (3715 m), and some of the most striking landscapes in the world (e.g. Anaga Rural Park and Teide National Park).
