Seasons

Whether you are looking for a high-altitude trek or a relaxed amble along a classic route or coastal path, we have a walking holiday to suit you, at the time of year when you want to travel.

Where to Go Walking in Spring Walking Holidays

Our spring walking holidays offer a wide range of worldwide destinations, including the Atlas Mountains in North Africa, Japan and Patagonia, as well as the Annapurna in Nepal. In Europe, many of the mountain passes and valleys become accessible, wildflowers begin to bloom and the landscape comes to life again - the Austrian Alps, Italy’s Amalfi coast and the Sierra Nevada in Spain all offer excellent spring hiking. Find holidays in Mar, Apr or May.

Where to Go Walking in Summer Walking Holidays

In summer, Europe’s great mountain ranges open up to hikers, coastal paths are at their most scenic, and the weather is at its best for enjoying most routes. We offer a superb variety of holidays across Europe – to suit all levels of ability – from classic treks to less-explored destinations such as Albania, Montenegro and Macedonia, Bulgaria and Romania. Further afield, we offer trips in the Caucasus as well as to Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. Find holidays in Jun, Jul or Aug.

Where to Go Walking in Autumn Walking Holidays

For those in search of some autumn heat, Thailand and southern India are good bets, and spring in South Africa is an excellent time to enjoy a walking holiday in Kruger and the Drakensberg. In southern Europe, the searing heat of the summer and majority of tourists have abated: in southern Spain there are new wines and local produce to be enjoyed after a day’s trek, while in Greece, it’s an ideal time to enjoy island and mainland walks. Find holidays in Sep, Oct or Nov.

Where to Go Walking in Winter Walking Holidays

In winter, we offer treks in the Annapurnas in Nepal, and walks in Thailand and Vietnam which give you a chance to meet hill tribes and enjoy delicious food, or see the Bagan temples in Burma. In Africa and the Middle East our holidays include trails across the Atlas Mountains, walking safaris in India and following ancient routes across the Arabian Desert, while in the Americas our Patagonia hike visits the stunning Torres del Paine National Park. Find holidays in Dec, Jan or Feb.
