Independent walking gives you freedom. Whether you take a moment to pause at a particularly beautiful lookout, or power on at your own pace, the choice is up to you: cherry-pick your sightseeing stops along the way, decide to linger a little over your lunch, or set off an hour earlier to catch the coolest part of the day. Created especially for our self-guided walking tours, the route notes are personally tested by our experts and give you detailed mile-by-mile and turn-by-turn descriptions, with all the information you need for a smooth experience. You’ll get recommendations for the best lunch and rest spots, excursion routes and notes on places of interest. And on all our self-guided walking trips, we’ll transport your luggage for you between your hotels and provide high-quality support through local suppliers, as well as 24-hour emergency assistance if required.
