Malta: Self-Guided Walking Holidays and Small Group Adventures
Sitting virtually in the middle of the Mediterranean are the stunning Maltese Islands. Lying 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa, the archipelago consists of three islands; Malta, Gozo and Comino.
Malta is the largest of the islands and also the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural while Comino, the smallest of the trio, is largely uninhabited.
Travellers to Malta, as well as its 400,000+ inhabitants, can enjoy year round sunny weather, attractive beaches, superb walking trails as well as 7,000 years of intriguing history.
In fact the islands have been described by many as an open-air museum. Walkers will enjoy ample time to appreciate the countryside dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, while in the towns and villages you’ll wander narrow meandering streets towards the main square, which is usually dominated by a huge baroque church.
