Short Itineraries of around 100 km will allow you to arrive and depart from the same airport. Long Itineraries will most likely work best with different arrival and departure airports. Some of our walks are several hundred miles long and cross national borders.
Clients from Europe may be able to fly directly to the local airport for that route.
International Clients will fly to a major airport plus an internal flight, train or bus. Usually, this means Madrid or Barcelona for Spain, Rome for Italy, Paris for France, Lisbon or Porto for Portugal.
