Inntravel's self-guided walking holidays are about far more than just walking. They are about getting to know a region, its history, culture, traditions and wildlife. That's why you don't need to consider yourself a walker to enjoy them – we have plenty of easy holidays where the emphasis is on cultural visits (although we also offer plenty of more demanding holidays for keen walkers). And at the end of each day you can look forward to putting your feet up at a charming, family-run hotel – each and every one hand-picked by us for its friendliness – where you'll find a warm welcome and delicious regional cuisine.
How our holidays work
On a self-guided walking holiday it's you who sets the timetable. Armed with our trusted route notes, you set off when you're ready, walking at a pace that suits you and pausing whenever you want. As well as guiding you from A to B, the walking notes provide information about the history and culture of the area, and the places of interest that you pass. You only ever need to carry the essentials for the day – if you're walking from one hotel to another, we'll arrange the transfer of your luggage.
Our holiday in Northumberland is a perfect first walking holiday with a very wide appeal – not only is the walking among the easiest in our selection, but there is plenty of interest along the routes, including the castles of Warkworth, Alnwick, Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh, plus the chance to take a boat trip around the Farne Islands to see the birds and seals. The icing on the cake is the characterful accommodation at which you stay along the route.
For our full selection of walking holidays in the UK and across Europe, you should browse our website, where you'll also find all the details as to how you can tailor each holiday to make your perfect itinerary – extra night recommendations, room upgrades, travel options, and more. However, we understand that sometimes it's nicer to browse a brochure. You can either download it to view online (opens in a new window), or we'll be happy to send you a copy by post.
We are proud to have been named the only Which? Recommended Provider 2021 for self-guided tours – holidays on which you explore at your own pace, using our meticulously researched route notes, which are packed with cultural information and tips for the best picnic spots and worthwhile detours.
