Inntravel's self-guided walking holidays aren't just about walking. They are about getting to know a region, its wildlife, its ways of life, and its history. For that reason, you needn't consider yourself a walker to enjoy them – our range includes numerous easy holidays where the emphasis is on appreciating your surroundings (although you'll also find plenty of more challenging holidays among our selection, if that's what you'd prefer). And if you associate walking holidays with basic accommodation and simple food, think again – Inntravel holidays feature charming, hand-picked hotels 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 area's flora and fauna and culture, 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 several castles. You're likely to see a variety of waders and seabirds as you walk, and you also have the chance to take a boat trip around the Farne Islands to see the puffins, razorbills, seals and more. 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 2022 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.
