Enjoy challenging but fulfilling routes on our hiking holidays

If you love the idea of mountain walking holidays, you’ll find some truly exhilarating high-level (grade 3) routes in our selection. Full days of walking, usually with long ascents and descents, are rewarded by inspirational views and the satisfaction of reaching high peaks and passes. These are hiking holidays for the more experienced walker: as well as being physically fit, you will need to be competent at map-reading and using a compass. From our range of more challenging hiking holidays, you can choose a village-to-village route beneath the famous Swiss peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, or an exploration of the Cévennes, the part of France that Robert Louis Stevenson famously explored with his donkey.

Mountain walking holidays, the Inntravel way

As with all our holidays, each day’s walk has been carefully researched, following the most interesting route and taking in cultural treasures and charming villages wherever possible. We provide comprehensive route notes for all our hiking holidays – these reveal the lesser trodden path and offer a truly individual holiday experience at your own pace. Your luggage is also transported between hotels where necessary, meaning that you travel light on our mountain walking holidays, and need only carry the essentials with you, such as drinks, a camera and sun cream.

If you would like any advice on choosing one of our hiking holidays, please contact our knowledgeable reservations team.
