Small Groups, Big Adventures
Coming from all walks of life your fellow travelling companions will share your desire to discover great things and have a wonderful holiday. Enjoy their infectious enthusiasm, great dinner table conversation and best of all the great sense of camaraderie our walking holidays bring.
Our small expertly led groups are usually sized 10-20 people, for holidays with higher grades/higher activity levels generally limited to 18 people. Our cultural or sightseeing holidays may have up to 24 participants. The two grades icon indicates holidays with two leaders and thus (potentially) larger groups.
Great Solo Travel Experiences
Many solo travellers return to us year after year which is a great testimony to the appeal of our holidays to those travelling by themselves. Our small informal groups usually include a significant proportion of single travellers and are a fun, safe and sociable way to hit the trail and explore the world.
Over the ice-breaking first evening’s dinner you and your travelling companions will begin to gel into a relaxed group with which to share the experiences of your holiday. You won’t be alone except when you want to be, and even when all meals aren’t included, you won’t be left to fend for yourself.
Minimum Group Sizes
Like all group tour operators, we require a minimum number of participants to operate each holiday. Should the number not be reached, the holiday will not be commercially viable and we reserve the right to cancel the departure. This is done reluctantly and an offer of a suitable alternative will be provided wherever possible. Conversely, we don’t guarantee a minimum number of holiday companions.
Our Private Groups specialists can tailor specific walking programmes for your walking club or group of friends. And if our brochured arrangements don’t suit you, we’ll tweak a holiday to suit your needs. Just set us the challenge and we’ll be happy to oblige! Our ambition is not to have your group travel with us just once, but for many years to come.
As an incentive we normally offer a reduction of 5% with a group of 16 or more people.

Travelling With Children
Our holidays are open to everyone, although we generally would
not consider our holidays suitable for children under 16, and especially
under 13s. There are sometimes exceptions though, so please do contact us to discuss your requirements.
If you are over 75 we strongly recommend you have a medical before
booking to confirm your fitness level. For insurance and safety reasons
we may ask you to sign a declaration of fitness.
Dogs and other Pets
We regret that we are unable to accept dogs or other pets on our holidays, either at our hotels or accompanying our walks or other activities, unless specifically stated in the holiday descriptions.
