Self-Guided Walking Holidays

  • Self-guided walking

With so much to absorb whilst seeing the world on foot it’s sometimes best to literally take it all in your own stride.

Checking out the walking sign and directions, AustriaIndependent walking gives you freedom. Whether you pause or power on: the choice is up to you, from cherry-picking the sightseeing stops along the way, deciding to linger a little over your lunch, or setting off an hour earlier to catch the coolest part of the day. Keen botanists can choose to spend hours minutely studying an endemic wildflower without worrying about slowing the pace of the rest of a group; everything is done to suit you, and you alone. Never feel rushed, and always remain in your comfort zone.

Exodus is behind you 24 hours a day, just in case. Comprehensive local maps ensure you won’t get lost – unless you chose to! Your bags are transported ahead of you; the hotels are researched and selected with almost 40 years of travel expertise, ensuring a good night’s sleep.  The detailed route notes provide everything you need, but just in case, there’s a 24 hours emergency telephone number.

Self-guided combines the very best of framework and flexibility. Set your own agenda while someone else worries about the logistics. It offers the best of both worlds, combing the carefree ease of group travel with the independence of going it alone.

See the best of the world on foot – your way.
