Hiking Adventure Reviews

This was the trip of a lifetime – having long had Machu Picchu on our bucket-list: the actual experience (of arriving via the mountains) far exceeded all our expectations.

Chris Heuvel The Salkantay Trek

If you like hill walking and fancy an adventure, this has to be on your itinerary!

Debra Jackson Tour du Mont Blanc Camping Trek

This ranks as one of my all-time favourite trips. The hiking was sometimes tough, with long ascents and occasional snow traverses, river crossings and snow bridges, but we were rewarded with fabulous, far-reaching views. Opening our tent-flaps in the morning to see snow-topped mountains was breathtaking. Our guide (Adrian) and cook/camp leader (Kieron) were excellent.

Hiking and trekking adventures FAQs

What can I expect from a hiking adventure?

Depending on the type of hiking trip you choose, you could be scaling great heights, soaking up coastal scenery or spotting incredible wildlife.

It could be self-guided or you could make friends with like-minded travellers in one of our group walking tours. Either way, our guided tours will mean you’re supervised by one of our expert leaders. They’ll impart valuable knowledge about your destination, giving you a more personal experience you simply won’t get anywhere else.

What different types of hiking adventures do you offer?

We offer self-guided, guided and even private group hiking tours.

Our point-to-point hiking trips allow you to cover vast distances, uncovering new scenery each day. Examples include everything from the Peruvian heights of The Inca Trail to the almighty Everest Base Camp Trek.

Want to scale some of the largest heights around the globe? Our summit tours will take you up the likes of Mount Toubkal in Morocco and Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Alternatively, you might prefer a centre-based hiking adventure where you’ll stay in accommodation for the entirety of the trip, giving you a comfortable base. This includes our Walking the Amalfi Coast and Mont Blanc Highlights walking tours.

While many of our walking trips are 16+, we do offer several family hiking adventures too.

Where can I go on a hiking trip to?

You can embark on walking vacations in Europe or stay closer to home with a walking tour in the UK. Want to go further afield? Browse our full selection of walking and hiking tours, which includes destinations like Peru, Africa and Nepal.

You can also filter your walking preferences by the type of destination you’d prefer, such as any of the following:

What should I wear on a hiking adventure?

Every hiking tour is different, so make sure you check your itinerary. Consider the terrain and the weather at your chosen destination and set time aside to research the climate expected during your walking tour.

Sturdy walking boots with good ankle support are essential, as well as appropriate socks to reduce rubbing.

A hot climate will require a sun hat, sunglasses and appropriate clothing, such as shorts and t-shirts made from breathable materials. Walking trips in destinations with hotter climates, such as those in deserts, can plunge to chilly temperatures at night, so be sure to bring layers, particularly if you are camping. Some countries also experience heavy or intermittent rainfall, so a waterproof is recommended.

You should also consider whether your destination requires a more conservative dress code. Many of our hiking tours integrate cultural activities that may require a shawl or headscarf.

Meanwhile, a snowy climate will demand a warm hat, headband or buff. We recommend two pairs of gloves, with one waterproof pair. Be sure to remember sunglasses, as the sunlight reflecting from the snow can be very intense. Check our winter adventure kit list for more information on clothing and accessories you might need.

What should I take on a hiking adventure?

We have an essential kit list that highlights items such as SPF and gel plasters. You might consider a first aid kit with painkillers too. Depending on the climate, mosquito spray could come in handy.

If you go for one of our snowshoeing tours, we’ll provide equipment like snowshoes, walking poles and avalanche transceivers.  

What is the duration of a hiking adventure?

Hiking tours can be as little as a few days or upwards of 12 days if you choose a longer expedition.

Are your hiking tours guided?

Many of our trips are guided, but you have the option to choose a self-guided hiking trip if preferred.

What will my group be like during my hiking adventure?

If you choose one of our guided small group trips, you’ll be in a group of 8 to 16 people. A large proportion of our hiking trips are made up of solo travellers, creating a great opportunity to make friends with like-minded people with different stories to share.

What will the accommodation be like on your hiking adventure?

Again, this will depend on your chosen tour. You could be camping or staying in a range of unique, locally owned accommodation throughout your tour. This could be anything from mountain huts to farmyards, rural gîtes to hotels.

Will food be provided on my hiking adventure?

Most of our trips include food and drink, with some tours allowing you to buy your own if there are services or eateries available. Check the details of your chosen tour to see whether food is included.

Some of our tours are very food-centric and involve related activities, such as wine tasting in the vineyards of Burgundy. So be sure to choose your walking trip based on what you want from the experience.
