Welcome to A Walker's World

Set foot in regions steeped in history and culture, awash with nature and rich in gastronomy. 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. We take you to the very heart of a region to relive history along centuries-old pathways, to see, hear and smell the uniqueness of their slice of the world.
The pace is your own. Luggage is moved on to the next stop while you walk. Go with an open mind and a spirit of discovery, so your experience will be a rewarding one.

Experience
Choose from a selection of independent (self-guided) and guided walking holidays in Europe, South and Central America, India and Africa. Many of these tours have been personally experienced by the A Walker's World team over 27 years of operation. This ensures accurate grading, quality of service plus interesting routes.

Accommodation
You stay 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.
