Short break 'taster' walking holidays

If you'd like to try a walking holiday but can't fit in a full week away, an independent short break walking holiday is just for you.

Our traditional self guided walking holidays are typically structured so that you walk one day, stay put the next, etc. for the duration of your trip. With our 4-night breaks, the formula has been changed so that you move on every day. In this way, you'll see the maximum the region has to offer within the shortest space of time. To make sure you still have time to visit places of interest, go wine tasting, laze by the pool and so on, we've kept the walking distances short. Of course, we still provide detailed maps and route notes, and our staff move your bags from hotel to hotel for you - just as with our regular walking holidays.
