From hut-to-hut treks through the Pyrenees to day hikes Guadarrama range or longer treks in the immaculate Picos de Europa, Spain has plenty of hiking available.
Some of this hiking is perfectly apt for people looking to unplug and get away for awhile, wandering through nature and enjoying the sites. Other spots are more appropriate for avid hikers looking for a challenge.

Wherever you choose to go in Spain, you are certain to find no end of excellent hiking opportunities. You’ll likely arrive in either Madrid or Barcelona, depending on your final destination. From Madrid, Asturias is easily reachable by bus, train or rental car. From Barcelona, Catalonia is an easy car or bus-ride away as well.
Outside of the three listed above, you could head to Spain’s Celt-influenced northwest and hike along the Galician seashore. The slightly wetter, but equally beautiful autonomous community is also home to la Catedral de Santiago, in Santiago de Compostela. This iconic landmark is the ending point of El Camino, a massive hike stretching from the French Pyrenees all the way to this northwestern city.
Spring and autumn have warmer temperatures (20ºC - 25ºC) and are generally sunny and dry. Summer can be quite hot, which might make climbing a bit tougher, but the days are almost all sunny, clear and beautiful.
This largely depends on what you would like to do and how much time you have to do it in. Guides offer all types of trips, from single-day hikes to week-long treks, and everything in between.
