Green Holidays in Spain
Spain has long been one of the most popular destinations for British holidaymakers, and its easy to see why: the southern coast of Spain is blessed with great weather along its hundreds of miles of golden, sandy beaches washed by the Mediterranean (and Atlantic).
Inland you find rugged mountain scenery, a rich history with the legacy of the Moorish occupation, white-washed towns and villages and groves of citrus and olive trees.
Spain also boasts fantastic cities brimming with life and culture: discover the glorious historic centres of Andalucia and the hidden gems of Barcelona. The North of the country is verdant and mountainous, with great opportunities for hiking, cycling and other outdoor activities in spectacular scenery, including through varied and wonderful landscapes along the famous Camino de Santiago.
There is a wealth of green accommodation to be found in Spain, some of the best you'll find listed below, alongside some great green holidays, all of which are reachable by train or ferry.
