Self-Guided Holidays

Explore the world on your own terms and in your own time. We offer a wide variety of self-guided walks to suit every individual from easy strolls to strenuous hikes.

Find your perfect holiday

Self-guided walking holidays are our area of expertise, having specialised in them from the very beginning, and we are certain that we have the right self-guided holiday for you.

 

The fantastic thing about a self-guided walking holiday is the ability to be able to dictate your own pace, and to have more control about where you stop to rest, eat and the times you set off. It is a more flexible and unconstrained way to enjoy your holiday whilst still having detailed route notes to guide you along the best routes.

 

Walking holidays are a superb way to get a feel for a country, you see destinations at a pace that allows you to take everything in. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells whilst still being active. We rigorously research every holiday that we offer so that the route notes and maps we give you are clear and detailed, the accommodation carefully selected and our holidays take you to the most interesting and beautiful parts of the UK, Europe and beyond.

 

Our wide range of holidays encompass differing grades of holiday: From an easy level of walking with shorter distances and small changes in elevation, such as our Best of the Cotswolds tour, to our Lake District walking holidays, which are a more moderate grade with longer distances and bigger climbs. We offer holidays of differing lengths from short breaks to several weeks, of varying scenery and in different formats. You might wish to walk from hotel to hotel or prefer to be based in one place and walk around that area. With a large range of countries to choose from, there is no shortage of choice of destination. We also offer self-guided cycling holidays such as along the colourful Amalfi coast or winding roads of the South of France, cruise along or pedal hard, it’s your choice.

"We have been walking with World Walks for a few years now. We wouldn't go anywhere else. Professional organization, and it's like having our own 'personal' travel guru."
