Guided and Self-Guided Walking Holidays

 

Self-Guided Holidays and Guided tours

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.
Guided Holidays are a good way to learn about the area you are walking through from the experts who have written the trails or indeed others who have been brought in to provide specialist knowledge such as fossil hunters. The guides will meet you at your hotel each morning and walk with you along the trail showing you the route and pointing out the interesting things to see along the way.
