There are lots of activities that combine perfectly with a walking holiday, so if you have a favourite hobby or pastime, a Ramblers Worldwide holiday may well enable you to enjoy the best of both! Many of our tours have a special interest theme that really gets the most out of that particular destination. You can identify these holidays by the relevant symbols within the holiday descriptions - their itineraries have been developed to include an exciting programme of activities around your chosen interest. All are packed with interest - but not too ‘intense’, so that the walking and special interest parts of your holiday are perfectly balanced.
You can, for example, enjoy walking and sightseeing holidays in destinations with historical or architectural significance, follow walking itineraries that take in the flowers and wildlife of an area, go city walking or take a walking and cooking holiday in a destination famed for its gastronomy.
