6 top walks for autumn

Autumn is a great time of year to get the most out of your hikes. Take in beautiful colours at a quieter time of year when temperatures are more comfortable - autumn really is ideal for a walking holiday.


1. Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

Autumn is the main trekking season in Nepal, for good reason. The weather is generally clear and dry, giving you stunning panaromas as you climb to Base Camp on our Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. After the hike, relax by the lakeside in Pokhara or visit the nearby Tibetan village and Buddhist Monastery.

2. Amalfi Coast Walking

Following ancient footpaths that wind through terraced lemon groves and traditional villages, a walking tour of the Amalfi Coast is truly a treat for the senses. The temperature throughout the autumn season is pleasantly warm, making this an idyllic time for trekking, as well as avoiding the crowds from the summer. Walking along the Amalfi Coast in this season allows one to savour the cool breeze, relish the quieter beaches, and indulge in the flavours of freshly harvested seasonal produce.

3. Walking in The Azores

For a unique walking experience in Europe, the Azores archipelago is hard to beat with its offering of  hikes around volcanic crater lakes, through historic harbour towns, and along craggy coastlines. During September and October the migratory paths of humpbacks and sperm whales pass by the Azores, making it a good time for whale watching. Walking on five unspoilt islands you'll experience a variety of terrains and interesting geological features including lava caves and fajã lagoons.

4. Hiking the Corfu Trail

Hiking the Corfu Trail in autumn gives you ample opportunity discover the friendly hospitality and beautiful scenery of Corfu. Take in the beautiful harbour town of Kalami (where the Durrell family lived), and walk to the highest peak on Corfu, Pantokrator, for panoramic views over the island, the Mediterranean Sea, and Albania beyond. Choose from a one week walking holiday in Corfu or two weeks hiking the 220km Corfu Trail, both ideal in autumn thanks to comfortable temperatures and fewer tourists. 

5. Walking Montenegro and the Croatian Islands

Hiking the trails of Montenegro and Croatia in autumn is a great way to see these two beautiful Balkan countries away from the main tourist trails; it's quieter, the colours of nature are changing to mark the new season and the Adriatic Sea is at its warmest for a refreshing dip. Wander through quaint villages in Montenegro, hike to the edge of the Green Lake on Mijet in Croatia and enter medieval Dubrovnik on foot. Whether you love to get know a place through meeting the locals, discovering the beautiful architecture or soaking up stunning views from the trails, you won't go wrong on our Montenegro and Croatian Islands walking tour.

6. Walking in Jordan

Autumn is a great time to take in all that Jordan has to offer on our Spice Trails of Petra tour. With slightly cooler, but still warm, temperatures you can wander comfortably. Walk through the mountains of Jordan's Southern Desert to the ancient city of Petra and an unforgettable view of its imposing Monastery and  wind your way through the impressive gorge of the Siq to the iconic Treasury. After a day spent walking through the Wadi Rum Desert amid red, purple and yellow sands, relax under a star-filled sky in a traditional Bedouin camp - a magical experience that stays with you.
