Think of mountains, and it is probably ski-slopes and vast rocky crags that first spring to mind. Winter sports are good, but there are warmer ways to enjoy the mountains. In summer, the Pyrenees, the Picos de Europa and the smaller mountains chains of Spain offer spectacular scenery and pleasant warmth. Whether you want to walk for miles or just enjoy the views from a car.

We would heartily recommend the inland mountains of Andalucia and Valencia, and even the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca. And don't forget that the Canary Islands are all mountains rising up from the sea bed, and they all have unique mountain scenery in their interiors.
