Where to go on holiday in September

September is an ideal time for a walking holiday in Europe, both on the continent or an idyllic European island. Temperatures in Corsica sit around 20 degrees celsius which make tackling one of the world's hardest trekking trails a less daunting prospect than in the unforgiving heat of July. Likewise, walking the Amalfi Coast in Italy outside of the buzzing summers months means more time to slow down and enjoy the views and your pick of the pavement tables outside a restaurant. The night hours in Norway have just become dark enough to possibly see the Northern Lights on walking holiday in the Lofoton Islands, and at the other end of Europe, the Greek Island of Crete benefits from plenty of cheap flights from the UK for beach lovers, but adventurous who delve a little deeper into the island's interior will be rewarded with fantastic walks into the Samaria Gorge and to summit the highest peak on the island. 

Take a look at our top 10 September walking destinations in Europe below.
