Guided Group Walking Holidays

Guided group tours are a fun way to explore new destinations with other walking enthusiasts and to benefit from the knowledge of an experienced English-speaking local guide and, where applicable, a support crew for your peace of mind. Whether travelling solo, or with family or friends, our group trips provide you with a sociable way to explore the world on foot. With a small group of four to 12 walkers, we can limit the impact on the places we visit. Our extensive range of worldwide walking destinations enables us to offer you a choice of departures year round.
