Trail (UK) - - Base Camp -

We love the Bri­tish weather. The rain. The grey. The cold… It makes us hardy hill­walk­ers, equipped to take on any­thing, any­where. It makes that post-walk drink next to the fire just heav­enly. And when we do get that first glimpse of sum­mer, via a lit­tle warmth in the air, it makes us eu­phoric with ap­pre­ci­a­tion. But as much as we love the Bri­tish hills, there’s a big world out there full of awe-in­spir­ing views – and much bet­ter weather! Now’s the per­fect time to leap into spring with a walk­ing hol­i­day abroad...

En­joy the hill­walk­ing won­ders of Tener­ife where the balmy cli­mate en­tices walk­ers all year round. Les Ro­ques de Gar­cia in Teide Na­tional Park (left) is where you’ll find basalt for­ma­tions that defy grav­ity and Spain’s high­est moun­tain, Mount Teide: an im­pres­sive 3718m high vol­canic crater peak. You can go from warm dra­matic coast­line to lu­nar-like moun­tain tops in a day – all in a walk­ing hol­i­day to this Ca­nary Is­land bet­ter known for its sun­bathing. Take in­spi­ra­tion, then ride out the end of the win­ter this year with your own short jaunt to for­eign climes.
