Walking holidays in the UK and Ireland by Alpine Exploratory

From Snowdonia, to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, all the way up to the Scottish Highlands and Islands: Discover the UK's best walking holidays with Alpine Exploratory. New for 2023 we introduce our first trip in Ireland - the Kerry Way! Choose from all-time favourites as well as off the beaten path trails for your very own outdoor adventure.

Our 2023 season for trips in the UK and Ireland runs from 1 May to 17 September. Our self-guided trips are available on your choice of dates and trip length; we don't have set start dates and there are plenty of itineraries to choose from. Trek in the company of friends or family. Your dogs are welcome on all of our UK self-guided trips, except for the Hebridean Way and Affric Kintail Way. Sadly we can't currently offer dog-friendly trips on the Kerry Way.
