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 week-long 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.

I have throughly enjoyed my holidays with Walking Women ! Well organised and responsive  and always lovely warm and inclusive groups. The fab accommodation and wonderful places ensure that I will be booking regular trips with them

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.

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.

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

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

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 9 and 12 km (6 to 7.5 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.

  • Here’s a list of the equipment you need to bring:

      • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed (around a 25-40L bag)
      • Hiking poles — optional
      • Water bottle or hydration bladder (2L capacity)
      • Lightweight hiking boots or shoes
      • Spare clothes for layering
      • Waterproof rain jacket
      • Sunhat
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
      • Headlamp or flashlight
      • Sunglasses
      • Camera — optional (but recommended)

    Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

  • 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 Priorat Aparthotel gets fully booked, the other option is Lotus Hotel next door. It’s a charming hotel located in an old house dating back to 1799 in the old quarter of Falset, which has been fully renovated. If the group stays at both accommodations, breakfasts will be organized together at the Priorat Aparthotel.

    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:

      • The maximum group size for this tour is set at 14 people.
      • 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. This will usually be discussed between you and your guide 6 weeks prior to the tour start date.
      • For the 7-day hiking tour, the September 29, 2024 departure, the maximum group size is set at 6 hikers.

    Hiking in the Priorat region can be arranged for larger groups. Contact us to make arrangements.

Your guides organized a group transfer at circa 3 pm from Barcelona Airport on arrival day. If you’re flying into Reus Airport, for example, your guides can also organize a transfer, but at an additional cost. On your last day of the tour, you also have an organized transfer at 10 am taking you back to Barcelona Airport.
