Cruise & Walk

Our Cruise & Walk programme offers a truly unique holiday experience, pioneered by Ramblers Walking Holidays and our partners, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, over ten years ago.

Today, we're still the only operator of this type of holiday, utilising our many years of experience to create this collection of magical walking holidays with an added nautical twist.

This season, we've once again worked with Fred. Olsen to bring you everything from a Caribbean voyage to circumnavigations of the British Isles and forays into the Arctic and the Baltic in between.

Wake up each day sailing into a new destination, bypassing the usual cruise ship excursions and walk the nearby coast and hills or explore the cultural cities of our ports of call.

 

NEW FOR 2019! European River Cruising

River cruises don’t just take you to a country, they let you get right under its skin. Winding from villages to cities, spanning multiple countries, past ever-changing vistas of fairy-tale castles, vineyards and architectural delights, you are transported right to the heart of each destination. And after a day spent exploring ashore, the boat’s decks, your cabin window or balcony are the perfect vantage point to watch the beautiful scenery gently oat by as you make your way to the next port of call.

Solo Travellers & Single Cabin Options

Joining a small group guided holiday is a great way for solos to travel and meet new people. We know that sometimes travelling as a solo traveller can be expensive, so on some Cruise & Walk holidays we can offer you reduced supplements on some cabins for sole use.
