Short walking breaks

A self-guided short walking break in Europe is a relaxing way to spend a few days away. Equipped with maps and our carefully compiled route notes, you walk at your own pace while your luggage is transported.

short walking break

An Inntravel short walking break is about more than the walking. It’s a Slow holiday, so take the time along the way to drink in the views, appreciate the wildlife or visit a castle. There’s no luggage to weigh you down, and, with no group, it’s you who sets the pace and decides when to pause. You can trust us to hand-pick welcoming hotels of character and to provide reliable route notes to guide you, so relax and enjoy…

How our short walking breaks are graded

Inntravel’s short walking breaks cater for all levels. So, whether you are looking for easy walking, mountain hikes, or something in between, you’ll find a break to suit. Before you start looking through our collection, we suggest that you familiarise yourself with our grading system.
  • 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.

What to expect from your short walking break

There are three pillars that we consider essential to an enjoyable and relaxing short walking break (and, in fact, all Inntravel holidays): timeless scenery; carefully selected accommodation where you’ll find a warm welcome; and delicious cuisine showcasing local flavours.
