Mountain walking holidays

that satisfy and reward
Our challenging hiking holidays bring many rewards, from the fulfilment of reaching a peak, to the panoramas that greet you there. Although you’ll have some fairly full days of walking, there’s still time to appreciate your surroundings, which is what we mean by Slow holidays. With no luggage to encumber you, and no group, you can set the pace, taking time out along the way to your next charming hotel, to watch the wildlife or linger over your picnic at an inviting spot.

How Inntravel walking holidays are graded

These are hiking holidays for the more experienced walker: as well as being physically fit, you need to be competent at map-reading and using a compass. To be sure that they are right for you, check our grading system below. You can add in an extra night or two to give yourself an occasional rest day.
  • Generally easy walking with few ascents / descents, but perhaps the occasional long day.
  • Easy-to-moderate walking with some ascents / descents, and occasional longer days.
  • Moderate walking on varied terrain, with some long days and regular ascents / descents.
  • Moderate-to-challenging walking on more rugged terrain with significant ascents / descents on most days. Compass skills may be required (check the individual holiday).
  • Challenging hikes, featuring long days with significant ascent / descent on challenging terrain. Compass skills may be required.
  • Choice of easier or harder routes, so that you can tailor most days to your requirements.
