Book now for 2021!

While our more distant clients may have to be patient for a little longer, the recent months of turmoil have only increased our desire (and that of our hosts) to give you a great walking holiday.  ALL ROUTES ARE READY to receive you in 2021, by which time (fingers crossed) travel restrictions should have been lifted.

There may be some unusual conditions – masks in public places and on trains, for example, and social distancing will be needed, together with meal bookings – but that is what we are here for.  And the landscape hasn’t changed – except to get prettier, greener and even more welcoming.

We have been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to ensure that our hosts are putting the right precautions in place to keep you safe, and to advise you what to expect in each country and region.  But if everything goes wrong and the virus persists, our revised booking conditions will ensure that you can cancel, and that your money can be set aside for next year or refunded to you.

Be bold – polish those boots again and get walking!

My 11th holiday with them. I think that says it all. They’re a very friendly crowd and always on hand to answer any query with a cheery smile. All nice and relaxed, but very much on the ball.

Five fantastic walking days with wonderful unspoilt countryside around Salisbury made all the more enjoyable by following detailed instructions from On Foot. My first holiday with them and I can’t wait to go with them again as they are such lovely people. Great B&B with the terrific Suzanne at Wyndham Park Lodge. All in all a fun time.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot are based in Salisbury and are walking fanatics. Detailed instructions about the walks, general area including places to eat are all sent well in advance and the attention to detail is second to none. Heartily recommend them to any keen walker as they just want their clients to have a good holiday

Walking from just south of Exeter to the coast at Dartmouth we were able to enjoy the English countryside at its very best. Each day was different; we walked alongside meandering rivers, strode out over Dartmoor, wandered down leafy green lanes and through picturesque villages and historic towns. At the end of each day a comfortable bed and much earned dinner was waiting for us.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot provided us with excellent service throughout. From our dealings with the office when booking through to the walking notes and the organisation of things like our baggage transfers they excelled.

we had a fabulous time. the organisers (onfoot holidays) are really helpful and nothing is too much trouble. the walk itself was exhausting and exhilarating ! midst beautiful unspoilt Dorest countryside, finishing with all the glories of the coastal walk along cliff route to Lyme Regis. The walks are dubbed "easy/ medium / difficult" according to their grade. usually the first 3 hours was easy, the next 2 medium and the last one or two very difficult - but great excercise ! and great fun

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

nothing was too much trouble. we had a burst tyre on our journey so were 3 hours delayed - but somebody waited for us - then we discovered we had forgotten the holiday notes - complete with directions and details of all the bookings ! again - more printed off for us without fuss. very helpful and great walks

We had a fantastic 6 days walking in the Rhine Valley, footloose and fancy free to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the well-chosen hotels, thanks to the expert organisation of our tour operator.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Extremely knowledgeable about the destination, well-organised, responsive, offering personalised advice and recommendations, willing to take into account special needs or requests, and always available to answer a question or react to an unforeseen situation. Excellent materials provided for the walking holiday, very clear instructions and informative tourist literature. Everything one could want from a tour operator!

Hiking along the Via del Sale (Salt Road), I (61 years old male) traveled self-guided for 6 days from "Little Tuscany" to Camogli on the coast through vineyards, woods, and high ridges. My luggage was transported each day to the next inn and most food was provided, allowing me to focus on covering the miles and enjoying the sights. I only saw 2 people on the trail over the first 5 days. The experience at each inn was unique and I enjoyed them all. Each day I was greeted by welcoming hosts and fed delicious food and regional wines. Two days in an upgraded room at Camogli on the coast was the perfect way to end the trip and allow it to soak in.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

All communication regarding this holiday was made via email. On Foot Holidays staff promptly answered my questions and were very helpful and informative. Amazingly, each email was answered by a different person than the last one; however, they worked so well together that if you didn't look at the sender's names you'd think you were dealing with a single person. I was impressed. The printed materials and GPS tracks they provided got me to my destinations without incident. The materials also included interesting information about history, geology, and food of the region. A local support person was made available and it was nice knowing I had someone to call for help, if needed.

We had a fantastic five days of self-guided walking on the island of Andros. For a small island, it is quite varied and the walks showed the island at its best. Very friendly people everywhere we went, great accommodation and taxi service arranged by On Foot Holidays, good food, sunny days and perfect temperature for walking.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided comprehensive information in the form of route maps and directions, and background reading on the history, flora and fauna of Andros. The accommodation was perfect, the taxi service they arranged for cross-island trips was always on time. Very happy to recommend On Foot to other walkers.

This walking tour was magnificent. It is not on the beaten track and that is part of why it is magnificent. We walked up and down hills with views of beautiful precipices and valleys, mingled with white Chianina cows, saw old and famous sanctuaries, one visited by two popes, stayed in perfect medieval villages and wonderful Agriturismos, and were at all times supported well by the tour operator. The food was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised that it is not just Tuscany and Piedmont that have first rate wine. The walking included quite a bit of up and down, which we liked. The people that we met are at least as wonderful as those that we have met throughout this beautiful country.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided excellent support, including large scale, detailed maps, a separate map in a separate folder for each day's walk, which we liked, and a GPS track, which we really needed. Stephano was readily available by phone if we needed assistance at any time. The connections between accommodations and luggage transfer was seamless. We felt really appreciated and well taken care of. We have already recommended this tour to a number of friends that are also hikers.

We walked the Cycladic Islands of Naxos and Amorgos. This was slightly different to our previous (four) holidays with On Foot, in that rather than walking from one location to another we stayed at one place in each Island, choosing from a variety of different walks each day and returning to the hotel. As usual with On Foot, the routes are well laid out and the walking guides they provide are accurate and helpful.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This is the fifth holiday we have taken with this specialist European walking holiday company. They arrange self-guided walks in a number of European locations, providing detailed walking notes, maps and gps apps for you. You set out from the hotel in the morning with your rucksack for the day and your luggage is taken to the next location for you. They have local agents to assist you if you have any issues during the trip. On one occasion we have needed such assistance due to unusual weather conditions and we received excellent and prompt response. They are a nice, low pressure, laid back company; we now try to use them at least once a year and know we will be well served.

We walked the Camino Primitivo from Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela. We had a great time. It was a great opportunity to really get to know this area of Spain. The opportunity to interact with local people, experience local foods and customs was priceless.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays was great. They provided us with everything we needed to be fully prepared for our walk. The combination of pre walk information and tools that we could use while on the walk were perfect. The local support was a great addition to the other resources. The local knowledge and experience was invaluable to our trip. We recommend On Foot Holidays without reservation.

We walked along the Atlantic coast in Spain, the Camino de Morte!!? It was staggeringly beautiful, remote, unspoilt. There were 11 of us(all women, all in our ‘silver’years). We’ve walked all over together and the Lighthouse Way is definitely one of the best. The hotels were brilliant, better than we expected and the food, especially sea food , was staggeringly good, probably the freshest fish we’ve ever had. Finishing at Finisterre, the end of the world, was a high moment. We laughed, drank, ate, walked in the sun in fantastic scenery, what more can you ask for?

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

They help you plan, what is, a perfect holiday for you. Tailor made to comfort level. We like knowing they are there for back up if anything goes wrong. And it did, they sorted problems in minutes ( literally) . They are soooo friendly on the phone, I feel as though I know them. They’ve been to where we go, checking and looking at venues and routes. They KNOW their business which fills me with confidence. There is no comparison to other companies, they are the best.

Hiking through southern Tuscany with On Foot Holidays was a wonderful way to see and experience Italy. The beautiful scenery and delicious food combination was perfect. We loved the small towns and walking through vineyards, fields and woods. Walking from village to village provides time to truly experience the landscape and culture of Tuscany.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays did a fantastic job from start to finish. From the first email through booking everything was effortless. The details of the trip, travel logistics, maps and navigation were all very clear. The route itself was the highlight. We loved the trails, towns and vistas. The hotel bookings and luggage transport all happened seamlessly. We loved the idea of a self-guided tour and On Foot made it so easy. This was a wonderful way to travel! We plan to book another trip through On Foot Holidays next year.

We spent 6 days walking in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains and 3 days in Palma. It was a fabulous trip, with great walking options every day to either extend or shorten the route. All hotels were excellent and the hosts friendly and helpful.
