If you’re thinking of booking a guided walking holiday, let the experts show you the way. Ramblers Walking Holidays launched our first tour in 1946; today we offer over 200 small-group walking holidays in the UK, Europe and around the world, all hosted by expert leaders with the knowledge and experience to turn every journey into a memorable adventure. Being a not for profit organisation is at the heart of everything we do, all of our profits are channelled back into charities and initiatives that support access to the great outdoors.
At Ramblers Walking Holidays, we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference. Being a not for profit organisation is at the heart of everything we do, and we support charities and initiatives for conservation projects and communities in the UK and abroad - for example via The Walking Partnership and the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust. We’re committed to responsible tourism initiatives at home and overseas, and we approach all that we do ethically. We’ve even reinstalled the waterwheel in our former flour-mill offices to power our computers. As passionate about walking as we are about preserving our open spaces, heritage and the environment; for more than 70 years we have been educating and encouraging everyone to look after our world today, for others to experience tomorrow.
Our tours cover six continents and a wide range of walking styles. From lowland ambles to high mountain trekking, from short sightseeing walks to challenging long distance trails, and from adventurous activity holidays to a gentle stroll among the museums and monuments of renaissance Italy – our holidays have something for everyone who enjoys exploring the world on foot.
A Ramblers Walking Holiday would not be what it is without the expertise and enthusiasm of our industry-accredited leaders. We have a team of over 250 leaders worldwide, each with their own individual style, particular talents and favourite destinations. Our leaders are vital to the success of our holidays and of our organisation as a whole, and we select and train them with care. Even on holidays where we employ a local guide, we also provide one of our own leaders, recruited and briefed from our UK head office.
