Capileira is a small village located in the province of Granada in Spain. Located in the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, to get to the village can be difficult due to the swooping streets and steep hills. Being the largest village in the Poqueira Gorge, there are a wide range of activities that are well worth looking into. However, one of the biggest, most popular walks lies further away than the centre of the village.
Just off the eastern coast of Spain lie the Balearic Islands – Mallorca, Menorca, Formentera and Ibiza. The islands are best known for their miles of sandy beaches but also have much to offer those in search of more active pursuits away from the crowds. HF Holidays makes the most of Mallorca and Menorca by leading guests along quiet coastal trails and up into the mountains.

Escape from the cold and frosty mornings in the UK by joining us for some early spring sunshine in Europe. Whilst we love the UK, we know that not everyone is a fan of winter walking and for some walkers March still isn't warm enough to strap those boots on.
Hi! My name's Adrian and I work in the Penrith office for HF Holidays. I recently visited St Ives on the Discovery tour, and experienced all aspects of the holiday. I was so excited, I just had to share my story!
Welcome to Bonassola, a small town situated in between mountains and sea. Although Bonassola can be explored in around two hours due to its size, it is saturated in a relaxing atmosphere, where there is plenty to soak in, such as the vineyards and olive groves in the local area. However, it is not just Bonassola that is like this; the start of the Cinque Terre lies only a 10 minute train ride away, in Monterosso al Mare - the Cinque Terre area is identified and protected by UNESCO, meaning it is a world heritage site. Originally, the area was occupied by the Romans, but was settled by people in the 9th Century, where Saracens ruled over the land; eventually, local tribes occupied the land in the 11th century. However, it was only in the 15th Century where the area got the ‘Cinque Terre’ name from locals. But, let’s get stuck in to what makes up the area.
Experience a trip like no other to Biar, Spain. Katie Smith, from our Digital team, jumped at the chance to visit this amazing destination.
One of the great things about working for HF is the opportunity to experience our holidays as a guest. As a member of the digital team, I’m more used to code and data rather than fresh air and adventure and when I was told I was going to Biar, my first thought was “where?”

If, like me you have had enough of tinsel and turkey, wearing a silly hat and a festive jumper, your thoughts might now be turning to getting out, getting fit and feeling ready to achieve something amazing in 2018. I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful Lake District and my challenge is to revisit all the 214 Wainwright Fells with my best friend Stella; my black Labrador.
