Walking & Trekking Holiday Calendar for 2016 & 2017

Know when you want to go, but not sure where to go? Our quick reference calendar of where to go and when should help.

  • Where to go walking in spring?

  • Atlas Mountains, Morocco
  • Spring time trekking in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and the Himalayas is Nepal is hard to beat. The Lycian Way in Turkey is great too before it gets too hot in the summer. You could also go trekking in Jordan as it's not too hot and usually dry making sleeping out beneath desert stars a joy.

    Although much of Europe's trails remain snowbound during most of spring, it's not the case in southern Spain so the GR7 in Andalucia is great for walking a little closer to home. Further afield trekking in northern Vietnam makes for an exotic place to travel at this time of year.

  • Where to go walking in summer?

  • Lakes and Alps in Style, Austria, Europe
  • With the odd exception, virtually all of Europe is perfect for summer walking holidays. The mountain passes of the Alps, the Carpathians and the Pyrenees are now clear of snow. The Tour du Mont Blanc route can only be done from July - September so this time of year is ideal.

    In the southern hemisphere, the Andes of Peru come into their own making treks like The Inca Trail or the Salkantay Trek ideal. Although most of the Himalayas are now out of bounds due to the monsoon season, this is the time to go to Ladakh in India and Mustang in Nepal.

  • Where to go walking in autumn?

  • Annapurna Sanctuary Lodge Trek, Nepal, Asia
  • Autumn means that the monsoon comes to end in Nepal, so the trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas begins once more. With the skies cleared of dust by the rains, this is widely regarded as the best time to be in Nepal.

    Early autumn is great to go walking in most of Europe and Morocco especially before the winter snows arrive - it's much quieter than in summer too. Avoid Christmas crowds whilst walking the rainforests of Costa Rica. Down on the Lycian Way in Turkey, the summer heat has cooled making it perfect once more for virtually guaranteed sunshine walking.
