Frequently Asked Questions - What to expect on your United Kingdom walking trip
Where will I stay on my UK walking tour?
Many of our UK based walking vacations are based at a single comfortable hotel throughout the tour. Occasionally, you may stay in two hotels, but there will be minimal transfers and changes during the trip so you can get fully settled and enjoy the spectacular scenery of your base location.
Will there be parking at the hotel?
Yes. You can drive right up to the start of all of our UK walking tours for easy travel to and from your tour.
How difficult are your UK walking tours?
All of our UK walking tours are graded
easy, moderate or challenging, depending on the terrain and length of the walks. If you're looking for a good introduction to walking in the UK, take a look at our easy-moderate Walk Northumberland tour
. Or, for something more challenging our Snowdonia Walking Break
includes hikes of 5 - 7 hours a day across rough and rocky terrain.
Do I need to be fit for a UK walking trip?
While you don't need to be a fit and seasoned hiker to join our UK walking trips, we do suggest that you pick a tour that is in line with your previous walking experience, as per our gradings
. We also recommend that you do some walking before your trip to get your body used to moving and covering the distances and terrain that you will be undertaking during the tour. You might also find it useful to read our blog on how to prepare for your first walking trip
