We invite you to try a non-group,self-guided walking holiday in Alsace, on which you walk from one hotel of character to the next. We arrange luggage transfers and provide you with maps and our comprehensive route notes. The rest is up to you – it’s you who sets the pace.
Villages of half-timbered houses; crumbling castles; wine… An Inntravel walking holiday in Alsace is about more than the walking. It’s a Slow holiday, so take time to explore the exquisite villages and learn about the history. There’s no luggage to weigh you down, and, with no group, it’s you who decides whether or not to visit the castles and vineyards en route. You can rely on us to select charming hotels and to provide accurate route notes to guide you there, so relax and enjoy…
Our walking holidays in Alsace explore the area north-west of Colmar, between the River Rhine and the Vosges Mountains. There’s no shortage of ancient castles, nor of fairy-tale villages characterised by flower-bedecked houses, cobbled streets and churches topped with storks’ nests, so don’t forget your camera!
