Walking Breaks in Europe
"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.

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.
