Self-guided walking in unspoilt Europe

Seek the still-vibrant rural soul which infuses the lesser-known areas of southern and central Europe and the UK with On Foot Holidays. Find the beauty that arises from the harmony of man, history, culture and landscape. Our mission is to give you the freedom of discovery, walking at your own pace, exploring quiet footpaths and villages along the way.

You will normally stay in small, family run accommodation and will fortify the inner man as the locals do – with home grown foods and the best local wines. And we carry your luggage, so that you can concentrate on enjoying the mountains, meadows and coasts. Our routes are designed by locals, and have a goal – somewhere great to arrive at. Search here for holidays for all walking abilities and tastes.

But most of all, we love to talk to you, so contact us for the best and most personal service you will get from any walking holiday company. We can advise on the routes that will suit you best, and if you’re thinking of combining two holidays as part of a longer tour, see our recommendations for ‘route pairing’ and suggested rail connections here.

You can find more about how we work and answers to the most frequently asked questions on this website, or give us a call.

We’re thrilled to have won the bronze award for Tour Operator of the Year 2022 from AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators), following success in 2021 (gold) and 2019 (silver).

On Foot - La Gomera

La Gomera is a typical volcanic island in form, with a dominant peak and a radiating series of sharp ridges and steep valley walls. Formed in the subtropics, the island is enveloped in green to windward and arid to the lee. This provides On Foot Holidays with a stunning landscape for a week long trek, with a huge bonus of the Spanish island culture to revel in. Each hike, and each hotel, were very unique, and excellent. With the informative and personable Aznar, the trip contact, a text away, we were always confident we were in the right place at the right time. And hiking in warm weather in November and December? We’re glad we stayed in the Canary Islands for a month!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was our sixth trip with On Foot Holidays. They continue to amaze us with their professionalism, friendliness, knowledge, and joy in providing their clients with superb service. On the trail or at our trip inns, we often compare notes with other hikers and their tour operators. No one compares to On Foot, so we’re always happy to spread the word. When we meet other On Footers, eyes light up when we discover we share the same good fortune. We plan to keep coming back until we can’t trek anymore!

This was probably my best holiday of all-time. My son and I absolutely loved it. All completely enjoyable and perfectly pleasant. Thrilling scenery, superb trails, spring-like weather and everywhere so unbusy, pristine and peaceful. At times it was like walking on a winding path through an ornamental garden with unusual plants at your feet but with Alpine views all around. The holiday provided the best of both worlds: the sense of discovery you get from independent travel but with the security and convenience of a one-click package. The app, our ghost guide Aznar and the head office information and organisation was a perfect combination. All the arrangements worked seamlessly. The taxi/bus options were very useful too and we shamelessly took them all!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

A very high class organisation from the first point of contract, to the material sent out pre-holiday, right through to correspondence in the week or two prior to departure.

We have booked multiple trips throughout Italy and Spain with On Foot Holidays and continue to be thankful for their impeccable organization, helpful staff, and wonderfully curated trips! This particular trip was our first time booking two separate walking holidays back-to-back and everything went quite well! Both were in Galicia, Spain; the first being a coastal walk along the Lighthouse Way and the second being an inland walk in Ribeira Sacra.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays' (OFH) local operator in northern Spain was Aznar Fernando Pinedo. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in coordinating a few short cuts we required, as well as assisting through a disconnect we had with one of the accommodations along the way. We would certainly recommend him and in fact plan to return to the Basque Pyrenees with OFH this year and are happy he will be our local operator again.

Our walking route took us from Amalfi to Sorrento along the coast. In order to take in more walking we took the advice of On Foot Holidays and spent extra time in Sant' Agata, Sorrento and Capri. We have used On Foot before and they were as good this time as they were when we walked in the Dordogne. Their information packet is excellent and mailed to you prior to your trip, their route information is thorough both written and mapped and the hotels they select are comfortable and well positioned along the route. They also arranged hotels on Capri and in Naples for our arrival and departure days. I would absolutely use On Foot Holidays again and would recommend them to anyone who is considering a walking holiday. We actually did share their information with people who talked to us about a trip when we were walking the route.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays are a well organized, professional tour operator. They provide excellent information, have a local contact should you need assistance, advice etc. They clearly thoroughly vet on a regular basis the routes they suggest and the hotels they book.

We combined two walks in Spain, Andalucia and La Gomera, which were our 21st and 22nd walking holidays with On Foot. We didn’t walk a couple of days in Andalucia due to foul weather, but these were only 2 of 3 days in all of our trips that we didn’t walk. We enjoy the types of routes offered and can’t say enough about the quality of service provided by all of the staff. We are already looking at another walk!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

We thought they were an excellent company back in 2013 when we did our first walk in Slovenia, and it’s hard to believe they could actually improve. But they certainly have. The development of new routes and GPS route guidance are two advancements that come to mind. But one thing has never changed, and that is the professionalism of the staff. They treat you as if you are their only client!

We took a walking holiday with On Foot in Tuscany in September/October. We started with a couple of nights in Siena and then walked via Pieve a Salti, Montelcino, Bagno Vignole, and Pienza, finishing in Montepulciano. The walking was beautiful and we had a wonderful time at the towns we stayed in. There was great history in the towns and also great experience of their wine making.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

The organisation was brilliant - every detail covered. Hotel choice was excellent. They provide great maps and GPS directions, town maps and public transport information when needed. They have great local guides who provide information that you need. They even have good restaurant suggestions. They are incredibly helpful in setting up the holiday and the people who work their know the walks, because they have done them. They are brilliant!!

An amazing hike through beautiful countryside. The towns that were high on the hilltop (where we stayed) were well worth the climb at the end of the day. On Foot did an excellent job of selecting where we stayed as well as the trail itself.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This is my 3rd hiking trip with On Foot. Quality for cost is excellent. My husband and I have both been so impressed with the places they select for staying and the reputation they have developed with the hosts. As always, On Foot were so helpful through the whole process from start to finish. Any questions, quick to respond. We have told many people about On Foot! Highly recommend.

It was very well organised and very well planned, thoroughly enjoyable and with the right level of challenge and reward. The challenge is presented by the very special topography of this volcanic island and the rewards are those of discovering breathtaking vistas and amazing discoveries in the most unexpected places. The landscapes are spectacular, in some places nature in the raw; a wild rocky harsh environment. In others nature tamed with awesome stone terracing and intense cultivation. The laurisilva cloud forest areas are special, especially so when shrouded in mists; dark, cool and mysterious. And then you descend into the warmth and sunshine of the lower elevations. Hotels were well chosen and of high standard. Transport when scheduled between stops was reliable and luxurious.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On-Foot were particularly efficient at assisting us to add in extra days and provided well informed advice about the locations. The pre-tour planning was very good as was the pre-tour information. Routes were well chosen and the GPS tracked guidance was spot-on. On island guidance and advice, provided by their Spanish representative was top-rate and immediate in response to the very few queries that we had.

Six days' place to place walking in the Yorkshire Dales through beautiful scenery and pretty villages, staying in Guesthouses and pubs with great food and drink. We loved the area and the length of days was just right for us given that there was some ascent each day.

I traveled solo in mid to late October, but the walks and accommodations were still quite busy. I followed the walking routes designed by OnFoot Holidays and really enjoyed the spectacular scenery and hospitality offered by my hotels. I loved setting out each mornin-- map, directions and GPS in hand--and discovering what the day would bring. The notes provided included several options for each day's walking. It was a joy to go on this adventure.

OnFoot Holidays offers top-notch customer service from initial enquiry to final follow-up. They went above and beyond my expectations, including detailed information about transport schedules and options available on each day of the trip. Any questions I had were always fully and quickly answered.
