About our Walking holidays

We offer a range of small group guided Walking tours.

On our small group graded Walking holidays 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.

Frequently asked questions about our Walking holidays


How difficult are our Walking tours?
Each of our Walking trips has a difficulty grade so you can find the best trip for you. For people going on their first walking holiday, or who want to slow down and explore a destination at a comfortable pace, we offer easy to moderately paced tours. If you're looking to challenge yourself with a hike or trek, we offer challenging to tough graded trips. These hikes include bucket list treks like Kilimanjarothe Inca Trail and Mount Toubkal.

How does a small group walking holiday work?
We offer different types of Walking trip. Some trips are point-to-point, while others are single centre-based. Many of our trips include a selection of the very best walks in the areas you visit. We’ve answered some of your most-asked questions about our walking holidays in this blog.  

How can I prepare for a walking holiday?
We recommend that you do some training before you set off – how much will depend on the grade of the trip you’re travelling on. Build up towards your goal. Closer to your departure you’ll want to start thinking about what to pack, and what snacks and equipment you might need. Read our blog for tips for preparing for your first walking trip, such as what to pack and how to train.
