Self guided walking holidays

Self guided walking

Self guided walking holidays give you maximum flexibility as you travel at your own pace: setting off whenever you're ready, choosing when and where to stop for lunch, and planning the day around your own personal agenda. We provide comprehensive walking route notes as well as proper maps and detailed route notes, so you need never worry about getting lost on our self guided walking holidays!

Self guided walking holidays

Hotel-to-hotel self guided walking holidays

Our hotel-to-hotel self guided walking holidays let you discover the heart of your holiday region, in your own way and at your own pace. There are independent walking holidays, from 7 to 11 days, at walking levels from 1-boot to 3-boot. With most holidays starting every two days, it's easy to combine two or more into a longer walking holiday.

Self guided walking holidays

On most independent, self guided, walking holidays you move on between hotels every two days: we transport your bags between hotels so you need carry only the minimum. In many areas our reps also provide a free wine service too. So if you find a beautiful vineyard en-route and choose to purchase a few bottles (or cases) just let our rep know and they'll pick it up and take it to your final hotel ready for you to take home at the end of your holiday.

For the days when you're not walking, our details route notes provide lots of information about the local area and plenty of ideas for sightseeing and exploring. Or perhaps you'd prefer to lounge by the pool? No problem - the choice is yours!

Single-centre self guided walking holidays

We also offer a number of single centre self guided walking holidays and, in most cases, provide comprehensive maps and walking notes, with details of walking times, distances, and ascents, so that you can "mix and match" levels to suit how you feel each day. This gives you the most flexibility about which routes to choose, and how easy-going or strenuous you want to be. Many people do bring children on our easier independent walking holidays and, of course, infants can always be carried in papooses.
