Northern England really does have something for everyone. Choose from a walking holiday steeped in history set against a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills or visit castles and fishing villages as you follow dramatic coastlines. If it is mountains and moorland, valleys and lakes you are looking for, you can explore the stunning landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Lake District. You can embark on a journey across England by walking along either the Hadrian's Wall Path or walk in the footsteps of Alfred Wainwright to complete the classic long distance route of the Coast to Coast.
Experience stunning scenery and spectacular views whilst walking in the Lake District National Park. Your journey could take you alongside or over breathtaking mountains and into peaceful hidden valleys on paths that wind their way to pretty villages and market towns. The Lake District has some of the best walking on offer in the UK and is suitable both for those looking for a challenge or those who would like to enjoy a gentler walking holiday.
Scotland is a true walker's paradise, with everything from gentle lowlands and coastal paths to the more rugged mountains of the Highlands. Walking holidays in Scotland offer something for everyone. From the quiet countryside of the Scottish Borders to the dramatic scenery of the Highlands, our hiking tours include the best that Scotland has to offer.
Boasting several National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stunning scenery is never far away on a walking holiday in Wales. With the mountainous region of Snowdonia in the north and the Cambrian Mountains and Brecon Beacons further south there is an abundance of choice for a day in the hills. Add to this a spectacular coastline and Wales is a magnet for walkers of all abilities.
Walking in Southern England is a delightful way to experience the rolling hills and expanses of farmland pasture that are typical of the English countryside. You can wind your way through historical landscapes and ancient woodlands to discover old churches, abbeys and inns. You can escape to the coast and experience the heights of the spectacular white chalk clifftops with rewarding views across to the Isle of Wight, the English Channel and beyond.
In the south west corner of Ireland, along a stretch of the wild Atlantic coast, we offer the Dingle Way and the Kerry Way. Located on neighbouring peninsulas separated by Dingle Bay, these are two of Ireland’s most popular long distance waymarked trails.
