Inntravel is the leading British specialist in self-guided walking holidays, with many years’ experience. Our range of short walking breaks is wide and varied, featuring the most beautiful regions of Europe, with plenty of choice for all ability levels, from gentle strolls along Spain’s Catalan Coast to rewarding hikes in the Swiss Alps. You can also choose between different walking ‘styles’ – we offer hotel-to-hotel walking breaks, centred walking from a single base, and city-and-walking breaks combining a city break with a day or two’s walking.

Whichever short walking break you choose, you explore some of Europe’s finest footpaths at your own pace, not in a group but using our detailed notes to guide you. As we transport your luggage where necessary, you travel light and in complete freedom, anticipating the next comfortable hotel and satisfying dinner.
