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. Just to the South, in the Vanoise National Park is our new Tour of the Vanoise trip. 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 2021 in the Alps
We introduce a completely new are for our 2021 season; the Vanoise National Park. We make a wondeful circuit of this pretty area of the French Alps in just under 2 weeks. We also introduce our updated Adlerweg Highlights trip which showcases the best of the Austrian Tyrol in just 2 weeks.

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.

New for 2021 in the Scandinavia
We are thrilled to present our Kungsleden trip in Northern Sweden. 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 2021 in the UK
We are excited for our second season on the Hebridean Way after an unexpectedly short 2020 season. We have also launced two new UK routes for 2021: the Snowdonia Way in Wales and Affric Kintail Way in Scotland! View our 'In the Pipeline' for more information:
