Some of our favourite paths and trails, both short hikes and full treks
Walking Journeys

Walking is a fantastic way to really experience a destination. Being on the ground connects you quite literally with the land and people, giving you a great insight not found with motorised transport.

Most of our journeys include walking elements and we encourage all travellers, where possible, to wander by foot in villages, cities and pathways. The Walking Journeys we have collected here take this a few steps further, and have large elements of hiking or trekking included.

The journeys here range from gentle day hikes suitable for most people, through to full trekking, climbing and camping trips.

Most of these journeys are tailor made and can be adjusted to suit you, so please take them as suggestions and we can work together to tweak them according to your preferences.

As well as individual journeys, we have partnered with GREAT WALKS to offer special walking journeys to some of the World’s most scenic areas. Our exclusive GREAT WALKS are specially designed for you and escorted by an experienced tour leader.

To encourage everyone to take the first step, we are giving all our Walking Journeys travellers a GREAT WALKS subscription, or an equivalent gear voucher from Trek & Travel.

Whether you’re a casual walker, an intrepid hiker or a seasoned trekker we hope you will find a walk that appeals to you. If not, let us know and we will find one for you.

What our travellers say
DISCOVER SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE HIKING DESTINATIONS
THE HIMALAYAS
THE HIMALAYAS

The Himalayas is home to nine of the World’s top ten highest peaks, including Mount Everest. They stretch 2,500km and cover Pakistan, China, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and India. The Himalaya's are known as the Third Pole, being the biggest deposit of water and ice in the world after Antarctic and The Arctic. The Everest side
is the more technical area, while the Annapurna side is ideal for treks through forests and Hindu villages with prayers flags dancing with the wind along the paths.
