Self-guided walking holidays in an unspoilt Europe

 

“Real” Europe.  What does it mean?  Self-guided walking holidays are the best way to discover the still-vibrant rural soul which infuses so many lesser-known areas of Europe, and to discover the beauty that arises from the harmony of man, history, culture and landscape. Our mission is to give you the freedom of discovery.

Our self-guided hiking tours cover most of southern and central Europe, including Italy, with its wealth of landscape, food and wine and culture.  Our walking vacations in Spain explore the north of the peninsula in great depth, while our self-guided France holidays concentrate on the mid and south-east of the country.

The rest of Europe is by no means forgotten though – with three tours in England, three in Greece and two in Croatia as well as many other countries.  Check out all the options by using the drop down list above.

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 the serious job of enjoying your holiday. Each of our routes is designed by a local, and has a goal – somewhere great to arrive at – and we have routes for all walking abilities and tastes. We love to talk to you too, so contact our office for the best and most personal service you will get from any walking holiday company.

Thursday 10th October | Posted by Heather Bamber

I did a 6 day solo self-guided walk through the Ligurian Hills region of Italy. It was mid-September, and the weather was perfect. The days were long and luxurious (and sometimes a bit strenuous), and I often had the forests and mountains completely to myself - just me, and the cows and the incredible views. And every evening I was greeted by lovely hosts, offering delicious foods and regional wines. A truly unforgettable trip!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays answered all my questions promptly and professionally while I was planning the holiday. They communicated in a timely manner, and were very personable in their communications - I felt they were focused on ensuring I would have a fantastic experience. They also have done an excellent job curating the Ligurian Hills walk - each accommodation has its own particular charm and the walk itself is breathtaking. The provided GPS maps and printed instructions that were accurate and easy to follow. And they checked on me a couple times during the walk, to ensure all was going ok.

We had a perfect week's holiday, flying to Ljubljana and walking for 5 days before ending with a couple of days in Trieste. We were lucky with the weather. The walk took us through hills and valleys, meadows and vineyards, woods and unspoilt small villages. Our luggage was carried for us each day from place to place and we stayed the nights in charming b&bs or tourist farms. We ate and drank well and had a final interesting and enjoyable two days in Trieste.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This is the seventh walking holiday we have done with OnFoot. They are the best operators with whom I have ever dealt. Their staff are uniformly helpful, friendly, efficient and well-informed about their walks. Nothing is too much trouble. The information with which they provide you is excellent, and all the arrangements on the holiday work smoothly. The places you stay are comfortable and attractive and the people very pleasant.

My Husband and I walked in Devon for 4 days. We are not experienced hikers but keen walkers. The route was varied, interesting and challenging enough so we felt we deserved the terrific hospitality at the end of each day. All the accommodation was comfortable and quirky- places we would never have found on our own. The path directions were correct at all times- we only used the paper version. The weather was amazing.

On Foot Holidays came up with the goods again. My Daughter and I walked Tuscany in 2016 with this wonderful company. They were very efficient in every aspect down to a lovely taxi driver who met our train and took us to our starting village. Very friendly.

Our preference has always being for active outdoor vacations, and our hike from Amalfi to Sorrento did not disappoint. We know that we've had a great day when we have to retire in good time because we're physically tired, after a strenuous day on the trail and a fine meal a great restaurant. I don't think there is anything about this trip that I would want to have done differently

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This trip was extremely well organized karma is benefited greatly from strong research and advance preparation by OnFoot vacations. During the trip itself, on foot vacations was completely inconspicuous as intended, that there was never any sense of abandonment or being left "high and dry", since each day unfolded as intended. We did not need any assistance, but we never felt that assistance would be unavailable if need it. We have already referred on foot vacations to others with whom we would like to keep strong relations!

This was an amazing experience walking along Galician Atlantic coastline from Laxe to Finisterre, Spain. From easy flat to scaling huge sand dunes, over boulders, grassy slopes, tracks along headlands, all the while following Green Arrows & Dots! Amazing plethora of Birdlife (Sept), staying small villages. Not to mention beautiful blue skies, crashing ocean even Misty/rainy day, all added to beauty of nature and our environment. We Loved every minute this walk.

We walked the Amalfi coast from Amalfi to Sorrento. Days were spent climbing into the hills away from the throng of tourists below. Spectacular views, some good challenges and at the end of the day comfortable beds and great views. The walking during the day meant we could enjoy wonderful Italian food every night without remorse. We not only had a holiday but felt a real sense of accomplishment and that we did things differently to most tourists on the Amalfi Coast.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Extremely organised- provided excellent information, walking notes, travel timetables in a timely fashion prior to the trip. We felt safe, like we had a back up if there was a problem- in fact we often helped out other lost walkers with our maps and instructions throughout the week.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided a wonderful and very personalized service. Extremely responsive. Very detailed and helpful route maps and walking information. Most importantly, their on-the-ground partners (accommodation, transfers etc) were not only exceptionally authentic but also spoke very highly of On Foot as one of the best (if not THE best) companies that they work with. We will definitely be using On Foot for future self-guided walking holidays!

on foot holidays provided an itinerary that met all our needs- we felt very supported though the booking process, and especially in country with a local contact that gave us all the reassurance we needed that this was going to be fabulous. The routes chosen were excellent, with a great variety of terrain from mountain to sea, but with so much more, the accommodation was varied -full of local charm, history and we were made so welcome everywhere. Highlights included, wildlife, spectacular trails, food, vistas, and friendliness of all we met.

Fantastic scenery, wild life, organisation, food and wine. Definitely a get away from it all holiday but tough in places so a good level of fitness required although some good shorter options available.

From the Po valley to the sea at Camogli this holiday was amazing. The walks varied between 10 to 12 miles a day across varied terrain from chestnut woods to the mountainous area of the Ligurian Apennines. The final descent to the sea at Camogli was a wonderful close to the trip. Every night we were intrigued to find out what On Foot had chosen as our destination. Each place was interesting and offered food typical of the region to be washed down with local wines - all delicious.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot take pride in offering holidays which are off the beaten track. We hardly saw anyone on our trip. They had chosen an excellent route with comprehensive instructions on paper and for GPS. Their booklets about the regions are informative and very helpful with regard to history, geology and food. There is always a back up in case things don't go to plan as well as alternative shorter day options. They make the trip personal and phone to wish you a good holiday beforehand. They also answer the feedback form individually showing that they have taken the trouble to read it.
