Put spring in your step...

Spring is here, and if you need ideas for planning your adventures for 2014, take a look at our 'Activities' and 'Regional' information pages for some ideas, or dip into some of our Blogs.

Spring flowers are starting to bloom in the southern Mediterranean and lower alpine slopes across Europe – they're especially good in the Sibillini national park in Italy from April.

The Mediterranean Islands and coast are warming up – plan a trip before June while the weather's just right for walking. Here are some ideas: Menorca – with a new guidebook just published, the Spanish coast of Southern Catalunya, Walking in Mallorca, and Trekking in Mallorca., and other areas such as Sicily, the Amalfi Coast and Croatia. For other spring sunshine areas, we've put together some ideas for you here.

It's still best to wait until June to go walking in the Alps, as snow will still be blocking the passes, and mountain huts are shut until June. Now's a great time for planning though.

Walking in the UK

Spring is here, with daffodils, new-born lambs and blossom on the trees. Check your knowledge of the Countryside Code here. Think about some walks in Kent, Oxfordshire, and the Cotswolds, where fruit trees are in blossom, or visit the north of England where new lambs are playing in the fields, and fresh spring flowers are appearing.
