Our walking holidays in Portugal and Madeira offer a unique experience, allowing hikers to explore almost year-round due to the mild climate, low rainfall, and consistently warm temperatures.
This exceptional climate characteristic of Portugal and Madeira enables hikers to traverse the trails even during the winter months when much of Northern Europe is typically cold, wet, or blanketed in snow. This creates a distinctive opportunity for those seeking outdoor adventures at a time when many other European destinations are less accessible for hiking.
Portugal and Madeira stand out as a few of the select all-year-round hiking destinations in Europe. This provides a remarkable advantage for travellers looking to embark on hiking tours without the limitations of weather conditions, ensuring an extended hiking season.
