For some, a gentle stroll to a place that’s always been on your wish list is enough. For others, only a task such as a race up Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains, scratches their particular itch.
You’re highly likely to find yourself in one of the wildest parts of the globe, whatever you decide. Whether you want to take on a desert traverse, a high-altitude walk, or emulate Indiana Jones by hacking your way through a tropical jungle with a machete, there’s a perfect destination just a few clicks away. Hell, even if you want to combine them all there’ll be a walking holiday out there for you.
For those who like a little more interaction, walking holidays and trekking holidays also prove that life’s nuances are best examined slowly. Often, the best way to get to know a country and meet its inhabitants is to sniff out the best cake and bacon sandwich establishments using nothing more than a well-thumbed guidebook and your own two feet.
In short, hiking holidays offer no end of possibilities because real adventurers know that anywhere is within walking distance - if you’ve got the time. Choose from centre-based, point to point, guided, self-guided, mountaineering, via ferrata and highest peaks options or discover all our walking and trekking holidays below.
