Travelguru David Wickers reports on the practicalities and delights of a Walking and Cycling holiday. Using Catalonia as an example, get a real taste of what an activity holiday like this is really like.

An active holiday, walking or cycling, is a great way to explore a region in more depth and get a true sense of its character and history. It is really quite liberating to leave the car behind for once, slow the pace right down and fully appreciate the changes in scenery as you progress from place to place.

Catalonia provides an ideal backdrop. As well as the contrast in scenery from mountains to coast, there is a wealth of charming, family run hotels and inns to stay in and no end of wonderful local restaurants. This part of Spain has become renowned for its world class restaurants (El Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca to name just two) and local cuisine focuses very much on the freshest produce from both the land and sea.

A basic level of fitness and a desire to try something different are the only requirements for this type of holiday. There are routes to suit all levels of experience, from strollers to serious ramblers, and plenty of flexibility to adapt itineraries to suit.
