• Pre-booked accommodation in rooms with private facilities on a B&B basis with dinners on some walks.
• Local contact who speaks English
• Luggage transfers
• Detailed walking notes and route maps

Welcome to A Walker's World


Experience the world's finest European and world-wide walking holidays through regions steeped in history and culture, awash with nature and rich in gastronomy. Walking trips offer a perspective of travel different to that by other modes of transport.

Getting close to unique flora and fauna; reliving history along centuries-old pathways through European villages unchanged by time; smelling the heavily laden scents of summer or the bush after it rains; listening to the echoes of birdsong, the pounding of the ocean or the silence of the mountains; are the special experiences that take you to the very heart of a region.

Wide Selection

A Walker's World have compiled a selection of independent (self-guided) and guided walking holidays in Europe, South & Central America, India and Africa that represent the best value for money for the standard offered.

On these trips you are literally travelling in the world's backyard, where local people go about their daily routines as they have done for centuries. The people are culturally different so do not expect things to be as they are at home.


Accommodation is in typical hotels, often family-run, spaced a day's walk apart. For this reason, hotels can be of varying standards, between 2-4 stars. The pace is your own. Luggage is moved on to the next stop while you walk.


Many of these walks are chosen from personal experience of the A Walker's World team. This ensures accurate grading, quality of service plus interesting routes.

Popular walking routes that have been offered during A Walker's Worlds' 24 years of operation feature areas we believe to be high in natural beauty and offer cultural and historical interest. Our full European and World-wide selection is too numerous to feature, so please enquire if your chosen region is not shown on this website.

Go with an open mind and a spirit of discovery, so your experience will be a rewarding one.
