Europe's best national parks for hiking
Thursday, January 19, 2023 @ 5:53 PM

British outdoor gear specialists Cotswold Outdoor have revealed Europe's best national parks for hiking, including Spain's Teide National Park!

Cotswold Outdoor's latest research has identified Europe’s top natural backdrops that also make for the best hiking experiences. Combing through 80+ of Europe’s national parks, from Slovenia’s famed Slovak Paradise to Croatia’s incredible Krka, they assess multiple factors across the popularity, difficulty, and activities/amenities categories.

The research reveals...

  • Analysing popularity, ease of hike, and activities/amenities, Teide National Park in Tenerife, Spain has been revealed as Europe’s third-best for hiking.
  • Tenerife’s Teide National Park owes its high overall ranking to the fact that it is Europe’s most popular national park
  • Although campsites are limited, Teide offers five viewpoints and landmarks to marvel at, alongside 85 hiking trails to choose from

UK-based New Forest and Lake District place first and second, whilst Calanques (France) and Krka (Croatia) complete the top five, respectively.

Hiking has become a massive trend over the last couple of years, especially due to the pandemic. This has been proven further by predicted 2023 travel trends, which indicate a further increase in adventure trips. What better time to book a trip to the Canary islands?

There’s great hiking in the Sierra Tejada, Almijara y Alhama Nature Park in Malaga and Granada Provinces, Andalusia! Malaga Province also has the 750 km Gran Senda de Malaga GR 249. Hiking attractions in the area also include El Caminito del Rey!
