Malta has over 250 km of coastline and beautiful Mediterranean landscape inland that makes for an ideal experience for hiking. The most interesting is hiking in the Maltese countryside or historic villages with their charm and beauty. Most of Malta’s hiking trails are located along the Western coastline stretching from Dingli in the south-west to Cirkewwa in the north-west.

For those who are looking for a more peaceful and quiet time, we suggest walks along the rugged cliffs and winding valleys of Gozo with local treasures and stunning views. The main season for hiking in Gozo is during the mild winters and from mid-autumn to the end of spring when the island is covered in green grass with blooming wild flowers and scented herbs. Enjoy a picnic outside watching the bustling life of the island, admiring the sea views. You can also learn the diverse legends of Maltese temples and caves with histories dating to the times of Knights and explore wonderful churches and historical attractions.
