    Trail walking

    Hundreds of kilometres of paths and trails between oak and beech woods, alongside rivers, waterfalls and river sources; others along the greenways or more suitable for practising Nordic Walking. You can also find others that give you a small insight into culture, such as those that run alongside megalithic monuments and those that conceal treasures.

    They come in every colour and there's something for everyone. So there's no excuse for not staying active!
