Continuous Route HolidaysOur Continuous Walking Holidays work on the principle of covering a long-distance walk in manageable sections. Enjoy a longer distance, linear walk that is usually based in one hotel, with transport to the start and back from the end of each day’s section of the route. Every day you are taken to the start of that day’s route, and then you are picked up in the afternoon to return to your hotel for the evening. You’ll then pick up the trail at the same spot the following day.
Sally used to analyse clay in a lab in Stowmarket. Now she lives in St Lucia and strolls down to the beach every morning for a swim. Sally loves the islands incredibly varied terrain and the easy going people. Her relaxed style of leadership reflects this, and she has the happy knack of tailoring the walks to suit all abilities. When we can tempt her over here, she leads in Italy and Greece.
Our Continuous Route Holidays
A continuous walk from Le Puy to Conques with transported baggage.
In the Middle Ages pilgrims walked in their thousands (and in great discomfort) from numerous points across Europe to congregate in Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. We stay in rural hotels, and unlike the original pilgrims our baggage is sent on separately leaving us to carry a day sack.
A magnificent trek around Mont Blanc.
Le Tour du Mont Blanc is the greatest walk in the world. As the circuit passes through France, Switzerland and Italy you view Europe’s highest mountain from all sides. Each day is different, yet each day provides walking along high alpine paths and views over peaks and glaciers.
Discover the Cathar castles of the French Pyrenean Foothills.
NEW South from Toulouse to the Mediterranean lies some of the most awe-inspiring medieval fortresses in Europe – the ‘Cathar castles’, perched high on cliff faces and rock pinnacles, seemingly impregnable. This holiday will allow you to explore these castles and walk this historic route once taken by the Cathars themselves, reliving a moment of medieval history in France.
Walking ‘The Way‘. Further highlights of this historic pilgrims’ route in Spain.
Between León and Santiago de Compostela is the Spanish continuation of our perennially popular Route St Jacques holiday. Pilgrim feet have passed over these trails for a thousand years, their journey culminating in an embrace of the statue of St James.
From the Grossglockner to Lake Millstatt.
NEW To one side of you lies the glacier of the Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain. Over the mountains lies Lake Millstatt in the heart of Austria’s southern lake district. In between are thirteen days of splendid alpine walking as we follow the first part of the long distance Alps to the Adriatic Trail.
Discover Roman secrets along this World Heritage Site.
This continuous walk alongside the Roman Empire's great northern defensive barrier, with two bases, follows the Hadrian's Wall National Trail. With its relatively easy terrain and lack of steep ascents through stunning and historic landscapes, it should appeal to just about every reasonably fit walker!
Walk Scotland's first long distance footpath.
Explore 95 miles of Scotland's most outstanding scenery on a south to north eight-day long distance walk from the lowlands of central Scotland to the rugged highlands at Fort William in the shadow of Ben Nevis.
The best of a walk across Scotland
8 nights – half board
This new coast to coast route across the heart of Scotland opened in 2014, to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of John Muir, considered to be the father of the national parks ideal. The full route from the Georgian seaside holiday town of Helensburgh on the river Clyde to Dunbar on the North Sea coast is 134 miles, we’ll be walking about 95 of these miles taking in the highlights of the trail.
