Self-Guided Walking

Go your own way into Europe's most scenic landscapes

Self Guided Walking Holidays

Independent walking gives you freedom. Whether you pause or power on, the choice is up to you: cherry-pick your sightseeing stops along the way, decide to linger a little over your lunch, or set off an hour earlier to catch the coolest part of the day. And with our in-depth trip notes to keep you company, you'll never feel rushed, or alone.

Created especially for our self-guided walking tours, the trip notes are personally tested by our experts and give you detailed kilometre-by-kilometre descriptions, with all the information you need for a smooth experience. You'll get recommendations for the best lunch and rest spots, excursion routes and notes on places of interest. And on all of our self-guided walking trips, we'll transport your luggage for you between your hotels and provide high-quality support through local suppliers, as well as 24-hour emergency assistance if required.

Please note: Almost all our self-guided itineraries are offered as Land Only (excluding flights from the UK)

Your words, not ours

"Having the freedom to make your own decisions was liberating. You can take a break when you like, so if you know there’s something special at the end of your day walking, you can set off early to spend more time there. We had the freedom to go off and do things however we chose. Just the two of us and peace and quiet – bliss, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life."
