Walking Holidays in Europe

Our Walking Tours in Europe

Experience endless delights and beautiful landscapes on walking holidays in Europe’s finest destinations. Amble across Austrian meadows below the snow-kissed Alps, and uncover classic antiquities at the Acropolis and Roman Forum. Admire fairytale castles and enchanted Bavarian villages in Germany, or choose to soak up the warm olive breeze by the Mediterranean Sea. Explore unique locations on foot, such as Iceland or Armenia, or lap up luxury in French wine country.

A walking holiday in Europe can be whatever you want it to be, taking you to destinations near and far. Classic and contemporary routes etch this old continent, from ancient pilgrim trails to winding Riviera coastline. Entwine yourself in Barcelona’s cobblestone streets and Baroque alleyways, or hike Mont Blanc’s crystal glaciers before curling up beside a fire in a log cabin.

Choose to travel across Greece, exploring white-washed villages and fascinating historical sites - Olympia, ancient Sparta, and the Acropolis of Athens. Alternatively, hike Portugal’s Serra d’Água for panoramic views of the Emerald Coast, or float into Monet’s watercolour France along the Loire Valley.

In Italy, we’ll climb the mossy hills overlooking Lake Como’s serene waters before dining al fresco. Dubrovnik’s sun-baked terracotta roofs are best seen by cable car; look down for dramatic views of the city from the top of Mount Srd.

For a sterner test, a hiking holiday in Europe could see you visiting the likes of Switzerland and Austria, navigating mountainous scenery amid epic backdrops. Our amazing trekking holidays in Europe provide the greatest challenge, visiting the likes of Snowdonia and the peaks of the Pyrenees.
