Walking and Trekking Holidays
Whether you walk, hike, tramp or trek, taking to the trail and exploring is one of life’s simple pleasures and the perfect way to immerse yourself in the world around you. From leisurely fly drives incorporating daily hikes to multi-day guided treks, our collection of walking and trekking holidays showcase some of the finest scenery in the world.
Our small-group hiking holidays enable you to get away from the tourist trail and explore different areas. Enjoy the company of others and let your expert guide take care of the navigating while you focus on the spectacular surroundings. Award-winning guide Cathy Harlow leads tours in Iceland and Greenland or take your pick of small-group holidays in Canada, Alaska, Australia, New Zealand and Norway.
The walking was superb and quite unlike anything I had expected! Our guide was superb and indeed the whole group were really interesting - I've never met such a well-travelled group of people in my life.
Guided Walking Holidays
The varied landscapes and accessible natural wonders of Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Canada and Australia offer abundant opportunities to explore on foot and at a level to suit you. In addition, the wilderness destinations of Alaska, Greenland and the Falklands are ideal for trail-blazing. With trips varying from a couple of hours to several days in duration, you can opt for a dedicated hiking holiday with an expert guide or incorporate specific trails into an independent touring holiday.
Independent Hiking Holidays
Offering the best of both worlds, these holidays allow you to explore on foot at your own pace, but with the logistics taken care of. In Iceland you don’t have to travel far to find some excellent walking trails and can experience the freedom of a self-drive holiday as well as finding plenty of time to explore on foot. Similarly, New Zealand also offers hundreds of well-marked and scenic walking trails in national parks throughout the country – some of the finest featured in our epic 4×4 Hike & Drive adventure. In Norway, the scenic island of Senja is a microcosm of the country and is ideal for week-long self-drive interspersed with hikes.
