Schedule of our walking holidays

Welcome to our updated 2020 schedule

Simon Stevens at Alpine Exploratory Welcome! After an uncertain start to our walking season in 2020 (thanks to Covid 19), we're now ready to organise holidays again! We're delighted to be able to take new bookings on our trips in England and also on our West Highland Way trip in Scotland from 1 August 2020. Our new Hebridean Way trip is still available for September 2020. Our Alpine routes will recommence from 10 August 2020. See you on the trails!

Walking Holidays in the Alps

Starting in the West, our Tour du Mont Blanc is a circuit of the massif bordered by France, Italy and Switzerland. Our Walker's Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt strikes out East across the Swiss Valais. Further North in Switzerland and making a full East to West crossing of the country is the Via Alpina. Heading East into Austria we offer the Adlerweg through the Austrian Tyrol. South into Italy we trek the Alta Via 1 and finally at the South Eastern end of the Alpine chain are the Julian Alps, the fabulously rocky and colourful hills of Slovenia.

New for 2020 in the Alps
This summer we introduce our updated Adlerweg Highlights trip which showcases the best of the Austrian Tyrol in just 2 weeks. We have also ammended our Tour du Mont Blanc trip to include a single rest day.

We're always working on new trips. View our 'In the Pipeline' for more information:

Walking Holidays in Scandinavia

Our Jotunheimen Tour is a circuit of the highest and boldest national park in Norway. The hut system is outstanding, giving you a real flavor of Norwegian mountain culture. We also offer an extended version of the tour which ventures south into the wilder areas of the Jotunheimen National Park. In Sweden we walk the first week of the spectacular Kungsleden trail, situated in the far North within the Arctic Circle. Staying in a mixture of catered and self-catered huts, this trail feels remote and wild.

Looking forward to 2021 in Scandinavia
We are thrilled to present our new Kungsleden trip in Arctic Sweden for 2021. This week-long trek from Abisko to Nikkaluokta begins the longer Kungsleden trail. We stay in a fabulous mix of self-catering and catered Swedish huts, plus a night in the mining town of Kiruna at the end.

We're always working on new trips. View our 'In the Pipeline' for more information:

Walking Holidays in the UK

Our West Highland Way and Great Glen Way explore the Highlands of Scotland, being the popular treks from Glasgow to Fort William and on to Inverness. In the Outer Hebrides we trek the Hebridean Way. Our other three routes are in Northern England where the Coast to Coast visits sections of the other two, the Pennine Way and our own Lake District Tour.

New for 2020 in the UK
We introduce our Lake District Tour, a one-week circuit of Lakeland and intended to replace the long and short treks that made up our Lakes coverage in earlier years. In Scotland we add the Hebridean Way which treks the length of the island chain. View our 'In the Pipeline' for more information:
