Our guided walking holidays are perfect for people who want an escorted walking tour in a small group. Share a moment with some new friends, stroll through the countryside together admiring the landscape, and enjoy a glass of wine over dinner.
These holidays are perfect for travelling alone or as a couple – full of camaraderie and opportunities to socialise with group members and your guide.
All our guides are based locally (we don't fly "leaders" out with groups) and are either Headwater employees or local partners. They are all passionate about their homelands, and committed to sharing their experiences with you.
We keep our group sizes small (typically 4-16 people) as we feel it gives the tours a good mix of people whilst giving everyone the opportunity to learn from the local knowledge of our guides.
Often, the best guided walking is further afield than a single centre, and you need to get about. On our escorted walking holidays, resident Headwater guides and local partners look after every detail of your holiday.
We provide transport, move bags between hotels and act as walking guides. And you enjoy hospitality at hotels chosen to give you an authentic flavour of the region.
If you prefer to stay put during your holidays our single centre guided walks are perfect. They offer the same features as our hotel-to-hotel holidays but are located in places where a varied and interesting week's walking is within easy reach by minibus.
