Top 10 Trekking Walks in Europe

From an easy hike across French wine country to a tough trek around the Mont Blanc massif, here are 10 European walks for all abilities

Camino Francés, Spain

The Camino de Santiago, or Way of St James, is a series of pilgrimages beginning at various points across Europe but all ending in Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

To walk the whole 780km takes around a month, but for a shorter trip, tackle the final 111km, from Sarria to Santiago.

Level/time Moderate – you’re covering up to 25km a day, but the route’s well serviced. Allow seven days.
