This seven-day hike brings active travelers from the old-world streets of Lisbon to the stunning beaches of the Algarve, and back. This trip includes six nights in various hotels along the way and is a three on REI’s difficulty meter.

Also a three on REI’s difficulty level, this trek hosts groups of 4–16.


Camino de Santiago – Spain Hiking

While this tour name may be a mouthful, it’s actually pretty accessible for moderate hikers. This nine-day journey brings guests through Asturias, along the north coast of Spain, over to Monte del Gozo and Cape Finisterre, to name a few. This stunning hike excursion showcases ancient trails to old-world cathedrals and rugged beauty. Group sizes range 4–14.


Great Smoky Mountains Adventure

On the shorter side, but certainly not lesser, hikers can explore the Great Smoky Mountains on a four-day trek.
