Europe

We began offering guided walking holidays in Europe in 1995 and continue today to offer a range of highly-regarded guided and self-guided walking holidays located in areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Our guests comprise a mix of couples, friends and singles who enjoy the spirit and camaraderie of our like-minded, friendly groups.

Our guided walking holidays are led either by the founders of Country Walks, June and Aubrey Zaft, or by one of our trusted and very popular local leaders. We are always delighted to welcome new faces to our groups of loyal guests who’ve walked with us over many years.

Our self guided walking holidays in Europe are all set in the finest landscapes. If you enjoy the freedom of exploring at your own pace with a partner, friend or small group of friends, our independent self guided walking holidays give you the flexibility to choose your own dates, set off each day at a time to suit you and digest the background commentaries that highlight features of interest.

You’ll be able to stop whenever you like and visit the places that most interest you. We offer a range of one-week holidays, listed below, all walking in the finest landscapes.

Wherever you travel with us, our carefully-crafted routes will guide you along the most scenic paths. You’ll stay at hand-picked hotels and quality guesthouses. Wherever possible we provide you with a choice of accommodation.

  • excellent en-suite accommodation and breakfast
  • recommended restaurants
  • detailed route directions in an easy-to-handle A5 format
  • a proper large-scale detailed map fully marked up and numbered to correspond with the route (not necessary but included for people who enjoy map reading)
