Walking Holidays for Singles & Solo Travellers

On our independent walking holidays you move on between hotels typically every two days. We provide proper maps and detailed route notes, and we transport your bags for you too. In-between days are a great opportunity for local exploring or for relaxing by the pool! On our guided walking holidays you travel in a small group with our expert local guide.

We've listed below those walking holidays which are particularly suitable for solo travellers due to low or no single room supplements on selected dates. We've a wide range of walking holidays to choose from, for all abilities.
