The Best Walking Tours Take You Deeper

For over 35 years, we’ve lead the way in crafting active, authentic, and immersive Guided Walking Adventures the world over. Join us and you’ll be surprised by what you discover. Adventure travel gets your blood pumping, your mind engaged, and all five senses energized by the scent, sound, and pulse of a place. Whether chatting with a lobsterwoman in Maine or joining a sing-along at a pub in Galway, expect a warm greeting—walking creates authentic encounters wherever you explore. What separates us from other tour companies? It’s all in the details.

 

Leave the Details to Us: All-Inclusive Vacations

We take care of everything—from finding the best walks in a region to gratuities at dinner—so you can simply enjoy the experience. Each day, you’ll relish a morning walk with your group, a convivial, included lunch along the trail, and further explorations in the afternoon. Then, you’ll be returned to your accommodations in time to relax before an exceptional meal at a local restaurant. We even include beer and wine with dinner!

Small Group Tours Offer an Intimate Experience

Our scheduled Guided Adventures boast a 1:7 guide-to-guest ratio, with two guides leading each trip of eight or more guests (to a maximum of 18, for the best group travel experience). The sociable pace of walking is ideal for making new friends on the trail. And since your guide is with you 24/7, you’ll have plenty of one-on-one attention.

Our Local Tour Guides Make You an Insider

Our tour guides aren’t just experts about the region you’re exploring, it’s their home. They’ll introduce you to the people, places, and traditions that make their community unique. As experts in diverse fields—from biology to botany to world history—they have a special talent for sharing their insights as well.

Active Travel is Healthy Travel

A low-impact way to get your muscles moving, walking refreshes in a way few experiences can. On the trail, you’ll find your spirits soaring and your senses heightened as you discover the healthy benefits of travel

The Best Dishes in the World & Best Hotels

On a Country Walkers trip, your accommodations and cuisine are an essential part of the experience. We choose locally owned luxury hotels and inns that leave a lasting impression. We dine in exceptional local restaurants with spectacular settings and gourmet, multi-course meals.
