Great Journeys
With our Great Journeys you can follow in the footsteps of some of the great travellers of a bygone age, experiencing several far-flung and exotic destinations all in a single guided walking holiday of a lifetime. Our Great Journeys are guided walking holidays that are longer in duration, take you across a wider region (often more than one country) and are generally lower grade, easier walking, staying in comfortable accommodation.
