Sun-drenched days, terraced vineyards, millennium-old olive trees, and fragrant Mediterranean spice plants—this is Priorat, your Spanish home for the week. As if the bucolic setting doesn’t make it enticing enough, this 8-day, all-women hiking tour becomes even better when you know you’re doing wine tastings everyday. With over 600 growers and 99 registered wineries, Priorat has lots to offer to both curious first-time visitors and wine aficionados. The area is brimming with reminders of its rich history, dating back to the 12th century when Carthusian monks settled it and built the “stairway to God” monastery. You’ll tour lots of historical remains with plenty of breaks and visits to wineries, olive oil mills, and restaurants featuring authentic Catalonian dishes—always paired with powerful red blends.

  • Capture the Mediterranean essence with hikes through countryside

  • One of the best wine regions in the world: taste intensely-flavored reds

  • Support local women’s wineries and dairy farms

Fantastic week walking. Amazing scenery.  Very much appreciated the insights brought by Claudia, our local guide.  I would highly recommend this trip. Tip – keep the contents of your backpack to the essentials only.

Dottiegc about Walking Women on Tripadvisor

This was my first time with Walking Women and I have to say it was just great getting together with a bunch of like-minded women enjoying the walks, the scenery, the chats and of course the cream teas! Chrissie was a great host and walk leader. I will certainly be looking to 2020 for another walking holiday. Keep up the great work.

dep about Walking Women on Tripadvisor

From the little I have experienced on my holiday with WW, I can see people and places are carefully selected, and held to a high standard with prices that remain almost affordable for all; curated to make the guest at ease at all times wether in the intinerary of the walks or the destination hotel/B&B stay. As a solo traveler I’m only sorry I didnt discover it sooner 🙂

Gloria McHugh about Walking Women on 57hours

Lorraine Roberts is an excellent guide. She personally helped Walking Women develop the Priorat Wine and Walking tour and her passion and attention to detail really showed in the high quality of the trip. The whole trip was really terrific; from the experienced guide (Lorraine Roberts), to the beauty of the area, to the wine tastings that were exclusive and private, to the attention to detail from Walking Women in the planning stages, and the wonderful hiking trails that took us to the tops of ridges, along a river, through many vineyards and orchards……really top notch, and great value for the money!

Gladys Ann Marrone about Walking Women on 57hours

Walking Women, with our guide Lorraine, put together a phenomenal week-long walking and hiking adventure through the Priorat and Monsant wine regions in Spain. The week was well-thought out, included a variety of adventures, the accommodations were excellent, and everything was beyond my expectations. As with any trip, things come up, and Lorraine was able to pivot to make our trip extremely enjoyable and successful. I would absolutely join Walking Women on any trip! If you like wine, food, the outdoors, hiking, and meeting empowered women, this adventure is for you!

  • This all-women hiking tour in Spain’s Priorat region is ideal for beginners. As long as you can walk 3 to 4 hours a day with plenty of stops, you’re good to go! Walks will range between 8 and 14 km (5 to 9 miles) along footpaths and stoney tracks, up hills and along valleys. There will be an occasional steep section, which could feel a little challenging, but the maximum ascent in a day is 600 m (1,970 ft).

    The paths will take you through scenic fields, gorges, vineyards, rivers, and mountains of Spain. The idea of the trip is to have stopovers on your hike in order to experience the local culture by tasting its food and wine.

      • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed (around a 25-40L bag)

  • Your base for the trip is the stylish Priorat Aparthotel in Falset. Centrally located on a quiet street in the old, medieval part of town, this brand new boutique hotel ensures you relax and get some rest at the end of the day. You’ll be placed in a single occupancy room—ensuite with a kitchen area, balcony, or a terrace. All rooms are double, but some have an additional bed and can be a twin room.

    If you choose to bring a friend and share a room, the price per person decreases. You can let us know your preferences when you go to the booking process.

  • Group sizes and prices:

      • For this all-women hiking adventure in the Priorat region, the usual client-to-guide ratio is 12:1.
      • The cost does not decrease as the group grows. 
      • The minimum number needed for this tour to run is usually 4 women. However, it’s also possible to run the tour with smaller groups if participants cover the extra cost required for it to operate.

    Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Minors younger than 18 may be permitted to join the hike on a case-by-case basis, but must be in the presence of a parent or legal guardian.

  • A $250 deposit to secure your place is due upon booking. The remaining amount is paid 3 months (90 days) prior to departure. Once the trip is confirmed by the guide, the cancellation policy stated below applies. 

      • If Client cancels the Booking anytime prior to ninety (90) calendar days in advance of the trip contemplated by the booking, Client is entitled to a refund or moving the credit to another holiday, minus the deposit. It is not possible to refund the deposit as it covers costs that have already been incurred.
      • After that deadline, Client is not entitled to any refund. Any reimbursable expenses arising out of the Booking incurred by Guide prior to the date of cancellation (including but not limited to plane tickets, car rental payments, and lodging or transportation fees) are non-refundable as soon as they are incurred by the Guide. However, the Guide will discuss options with the Client regarding the possibility of reselling the Client’s place.
      • If Client has to cancel the trip due to COVID-19 infection, the Guide will refund Client’s money or transfer it to another trip.
  • To get to Falset, the starting point of your adventure, most people fly into Barcelona Airport, 1.5 hours from Priorat. From there, you can rent a car or take a shuttle service, in which case it will take a bit longer than by car. If you have a possibility of flying into Reus Airport, even better—your guides include pick-up and drop-off from that airport.

    Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, your guide will suggest the best place to meet. If you’re not flying into Reus Airport and getting picked up by your guide, you’ll meet your guide at your accommodation in Falset.
