Premium Cycling Holidays

To complement your walking holiday in Europe, a cycling holiday is ideal.

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.

Guided, Independent & Private Trips




Our European guided walking holidays are made up of small compatible groups that number no more than 16, made up of different nationalities. Trips are graded indicating the degree of difficulty to allow you to choose a walk within your capabilities. To a certain degree you can take advantage of the backup vehicle to walk as little or as much as you like. In the evenings you stay at characteristic, comfortable accommodation, usually two and three-star standard. You can share simple regional cuisine with like-minded people – your tour party!

Features of this programme are:

Pre-booked accommodation in rooms with private facilities, mostly on a bed and breakfast basis with dinners on some walks

Local contact; luggage transfers; detailed walking notes and route maps

Want to celebrate an occasion; bring friends from far and near together; or have a common interest group keen to share new experiences. Let us tailor-make a tour according to your party’s interests, then take care of all the arrangements so all you have to do is enjoy!

Client feedback – Kiwimasters’ PRAGUE TO KRAKOW WALK, October, 2014

Although cautious at the start to handling such a big group of Kiwis from such a faraway place, our guides Ladislav and Peter very quickly adapted to the two groups that we comprised: the keen walkers that wanted to explore as much of the countryside as possible daily and the second group who were more inclined to have a more relaxed approach with regular coffees etc…

They overcame their initial concerns to become a part of OUR tour. To see them do the Haka at the end of the tour in Krakow said it all.

These people really left a great impression in our minds of what makes a successful trip. They were backed up by Evain who looked after the luggage, the bus drivers and the ladies who supplied us with our daily lunches, including a picnic in the fields. The accommodation was great and of course we ate very well.

All in all the tour was a great credit to yourselves and local operator. It gave a positive insight for 28 Kiwis on the sights of both Czech Republic and the Karakow area of Poland.
