Short Break Walking Holidays

Take in the stunning sights of Ireland, Gozo, Portugal, France or Catalunya during one of our short break walking holidays. These carefully crafted trips allow you to enjoy picturesque backdrops in some of Europe's most historically interesting locations. Stroll through the wonderful greenery of Ireland's longest trail, The Kerry Way, and experience the assorted coastal and countryside landscapes of the mystical Emerald Isle.

Perhaps Malta's sister island of Gozo is more your thing with its ancient temples, shop-lined cobbled streets and flower-filled fields. Walking holidays in Portugal's hidden Algarve reveal the rustic charm of fishing villages, tree-fringed paths and spectacular cliff-lined vistas. History lovers will revel in our Catalan Classic Walk which sees us delving into the area's intriguing past as we stay in a revived 14th century castle.

If you prefer short break walking holidays with a Gallic theme, our breaks in Burgundy and the Loire Valley are the perfect pick. During our trip to Loire, you'll visit some of the many Chateaux and discover exceptional scenery.

Food lovers will be in their element during our Gastronomic Burgundy walking holiday as we sample both traditional and innovative dishes at various eateries in this awe-inspiring location. Each 4-night walking tour gives ample opportunity to experience the local culture and cuisine.

All short break walking holidays are self-guided with accommodation and some meals provided.
