Walking Holidays

"Not all those who wander are lost." - J. R. R. Tolkein

Satisfy your wanderlust on one of our walking holidays in Europe! We offer a variety of guided and self-guided walking tours; from the Camino de Santiago in Spain, to the Tatras mountains in Slovakia. Whether you like to base yourself in one place and explore the local area on different hikes, or prefer to cover more ground and walk from place to place staying at hotels and inns along the way, we have something for you.

While we offer walking tours for all fitness levels, a good basic level of fitness is advised to get the most out of your hiking holiday.

The ultimate in slow travel, walking tours are a fantastic way to explore an area at your own pace.  Get off the beaten track and discover places that are not affected by mass tourism, so you can get to know the local culture, enjoy the fantastic scenery and take things in your stride.  You will return relaxed, refreshed and reinvigorated.

 

Guided walking holidays

Guided trips are great for those who like to meet like minded people and learn about the area from a knowledgeable local guide.  Most group departures are for up to 16 people and are available on request.  If you are a solo traveller who is happy to share a room, just let us know; many tours let you avoid the single room supplement if there is someone to share with.

Highlights include our Nordic walking break in Catalonia is based on the coast, while you explore the Montnegre Natural Park over 3 days.

Alternatively explore the National Parks of Croatia on a one week break or head to the mountains on our 3 night adventure hiking break in Slovakia.

 

Self-guided walking tours

If you prefer to remain independent and travel at your own pace then try one of our self-guided tours.  Each itinerary gives you a start and end point for each day and luggage transfers so you are free to explore and stop off wherever you like.

Discover the beautiful Salzkammergut area of Austria, on a 4 night or 7 night break.

Hike part of the Alpe-Adria trail that starts in the Austrian Alps and ends on the Adriatic coast in Italy;  We offer a number of itineraries along the route, like the historical tour of locations of crucial WW1 battles on the Slovenian and Italian border.
