About Us

For 40 years, Country Walkers has provided active, experiential, and stunning travel experiences on five continents. Based in Williston, Vermont, our unique adventures and insider access bring the beating heart of a destination to life with well-crafted itineraries for Guided Walking and Self-Guided Walking. All of our walking trips highlight superb cuisine, fine, authentic accommodations and immersive cultural and natural experiences.

A Passion for Authentic Travel

Because we’re passionate travelers ourselves, we know what you’re looking for in an active adventure. That’s why we’ve carefully designed every one of our itineraries—using on-site research and the insider perspective of local friends and colleagues—to guarantee a trip that immerses you in the culture, traditions, natural beauty, and history of a destination. Whether it's an afternoon spent with a winemaker in France or Italy, a midnight kayak ride on an Icelandic lagoon, or sharing a traditional meal with a family in Spain, you'll travel off the beaten path and in the fabric of local life.

40 Years of Experience

Country Walkers began with a simple idea: explore the world actively, passionately, and with a commitment to authentically engaging with local cultures. With this guiding principle, we launched the company in 1979 from an old barn in Vermont. Although we were small (and our office space rustic), our love for the beautiful landscapes of the surrounding Green Mountains became contagious. Soon we expanded from local to international destinations, discovering new and exotic lands around the world. In 2011 we introduced Safaris, offering active and immersive adventures in the heart of Africa. Today, Country Walkers is recognized as one of the leading providers of Walking Adventures worldwide, having garnered countless awards including National Geographic Traveler’s “50 Tours of a Lifetime” and Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” Awards.
