Discover Europe’s best National Parks Back to News

Monday 23rd July | Posted by Simon Scutt

It’s National Parks Week in the UK, a festival that champions the natural wonders of these specially protected areas of beautiful Britain.  We thought that as well as reminding you of our two self-guided walking holidays that pass through National Parks in England – Devon and the Yorkshire Dales – we’d take a look at some other Parks on On Foot Holidays’ routes in Europe.

Lycia - Mountain and Sea

 

 

 

Follow the Lycian Way through Turkey’s Beydağları Coastal National Park, via mountains, ancient ruins and perfect beaches on the way to the lonely lighthouse (Lycia – Mountain and Sea).

 

 

 

 

Alpes Maritimes

 

 

 

In the south-east corner of France, walk through the valleys and villages perchés of the Mercantour National Park on our Alpes Maritimes holiday. If you’re lucky, you may see a chamois or marmot here.

 

 

 

 

Bulgaria (guided)

 

 

 

Our only guided holiday will take you to the heights of Mt Musala in Bulgaria‘s Rila National Park. Stay in a mountain refuge, before descending to journey’s end at the spectacular Rila Monastery.

 

 

 

 

Northern Portugal

 

 

 

In the lush green valleys of the Peneda-Gerês National Park in Northern Portugal, you’ll find communities continuing a lifestyle that is centuries old.  Here the farmers keep long-horned cattle, fed on maize stored in distinctive granite espigueiros.

 

 

 

 

Corfu and the Vikos Gorge

 

 

 

There’s a similar character to the stone villages of the Vikos–Aoös National Park in mainland Greece, where the villagers are fiercely protective of their way of life and heritage. Get to know them while exploring the stunning Vikos Gorge.
