Self-Guided Holidays

  • Self-Guided Holidays

Our dedicated team of experts have created a range of self-guided cycling and walking tours to ensure maximum flexibility for your holiday with Explore!

With our new self-guided range, your holiday really is on your own terms. You can depart on any day of the week … get up when you want, cycle or walk at your own pace making as many stops along the way as you like to immerse yourself in local life, meet local people, stop for refreshments, enjoy local hospitality and learn about local history. Our itineraries are designed with flexibility and comfort in mind. In many places we stay for two nights, giving you the option to cycle, walk or take a break and relax instead. If you have more energy it is often possible to extend the journey or take a longer, more challenging route. If you’d like to enjoy some more relaxing time, you can choose to add a day or two on to the beginning or end of your holiday.
