Self-Guided Walking Holidays

Self-Guided Holidays 

Self-Guided holidays are a great way to enjoy a walking holiday at your own pace. You can stop to enjoy the beautiful scenery at any point without worrying about keeping up with a group of other walkers, you can also explore whatever takes your fancy along the way.
A self-guided holiday from Footscape will be tailored to your specific needs and we can change the trail you take to reflect the distance and terrain you are comfortable with on a daily basis.
The self-guided holiday leaves you completely independent so that you are free to stop where you want to enjoy lunch in the pub of your choice along the way, we will supply you with a range of hostelries along the route.

Each individually designed holiday has a tailor made trail guide, packed with information about the geology, environment and history of the area, places to see and recommendations of where to eat- its like walking with a knowledgeable guide, but with total independence.
