1. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on Foot

Explore the Baltic States on this walking holiday, which includes guided tours of Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. Outside of the cities, you can learn to bog walk in the unique ecosystem of Estonia’s Lahemaa National Park, explore forts and castles in Latvia and ramble in the dunes and pine forests of Curonian Spit in Lithuania. We walk almost every day but the maximum distance is 11km, leaving plenty of time to relax or explore the medieval towns and cities under your own steam.

2. Walking in New Zealand

New Zealand is nature’s playground, with a thrilling variety of landscapes to discover, from fjords and glaciers to beaches and forests. And what better way to discover it than on a walking holiday? On this trip we travel both the North and South Islands, making sure to visit all of the must-see attractions. Hike among the bubbling mud pools and hissing geysers of the Waimangu Valley, in the shadow of Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest peak, and across golden beaches in the Abel Tasman National Park. We also walk the Queen Charlotte Track, a coastal route that weaves through the beautiful Marlborough Sounds.

4. On Foot in Vietnam

Our two-week walking holiday in Vietnam includes the must-visit cities of Hanoi, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City. And to experience rural life, we spend two nights in Pu Luong Nature Reserve, in an eco-friendly lodge with breath-taking views over the mountains, forests and terraced fields of the area. The lodge is a perfect base for two days of walking past paddy fields, through local villages and along a scenic river – ending in a peaceful ride on bamboo rafts back to our base.

7. Cuba Highlights on Foot

Cuba is a popular destination but there’s a lot to see outside of Havana, away from the tourist trail. Uncover Cuba’s hidden gems on our easy grade walking holiday. You’ll walk through tropical forests, lush green valleys and tobacco fields. And to cool off there are natural pools and waterfalls for a swim. At the end of each day we stay in casa particulares – Cuban homestays hosted by a local family.
