About our Walking holidays


We offer a range of small group guided Walking tours as well as Self-Guided hiking trips. 

On our small group graded Walking trips you'll have an expert tour leader to guide the walks and show you the must-see highlights, as well as the hidden gems we've uncovered. On more remote or challenging treks our leaders will be supported by additional guides and support crew.

As well as the planning the best route, we'll also organise the accommodation and luggage transfers for your trip. So all you need to do is walk and enjoy the journey, knowing we've sorted the logistics and that we'll show you all there is to see to fully explore your destination.

Our Self-Guided Walking trips work slightly differently, as you'll be navigating by yourself. But, we'll still organise all the details like maps and route notes, accommodation and luggage transfers. So, you can enjoy the time to yourself without any hassle.
