Customers will hike on El Teide, Tenerife’s volcano, explore La Gomera’s verdant Garajonay National Park and soak up the atmosphere in the harbour town of San Sebastian.

Customers can also visit the Botanical Gardens at Juego de Bolas and take in the rock formations. Departures are available year round and cost from £655 per person based on two sharing. The price includes seven nights’ breakfast accommodation, three other meals and luggage transfer services.

Alternatively, an eight-day Coastal Trails of Portugal provides customers with a moderate graded walking tour, where guests can take in the unspoilt coastal views, discover Cabo Sao Vicente, the most south-western point of continental Europe and visit the historic town of Vila do Bispo.
