WALKING HOLIDAYS ABROAD


We have had some excellent walking holidays all around the world, travelling with with two companies - Explore and Exodus.

Both companies provide walking holidays for small groups, and both have a 'responsible tourism' policy - aiming to use local facilities and services in order to put money into the local economy.
