In the UK
The Yorkshire Dales offer rolling green hills, fresh air, and characterful villages unlike anywhere else in the UK. The beautiful scenery can be wild and windswept in winter, or blossoming with life and vibrant flora and fauna in spring and summer. Either way, there are thousands of walking routes accessible from across the Dales for you to take advantage of. Friendly and welcoming, there are a range of small hotels in Yorkshire, which can be a great place to start. Or, if you’re planning a busy weekend of mountain and walking holidays, why not visit one of the amazing spa resorts that we can offer you exclusive discounts at – so you can make the most of the facilities to relax and rejuvenate between walks?
For rugged scenery and more challenging ascents, the Cairngorms in the north of Scotland is the location of choice for many active walkers. A range of guided tours and walks are available, or experienced climbers and walkers can make the most of a huge range of hill and mountain paths, to explore this stunning area. It’s not just the beautiful scenery that makes this part of Scotland so appealing for mountain and walking holidays, but also the abundant and unusual wildlife, from red stags and red squirrels, to soaring birds of prey – the Cairngorms is the perfect place to connect with nature and escape the stress of modern life. Many local hotels trade on this, and offer stunning patios, gardens and views. Look for hotels that give easy access to well-trodden walking routes, or perhaps pick a destination that will help you enjoy the surroundings in peace and tranquility.
Mountain and walking holidays in Europe
Europe has an enormous and diverse range of walking and mountain holidays available, from the Swiss Alps to the rolling landscapes of southern Spain. However, we've hand-picked exclusive offers in some lesser known locations, perfect for the discerning traveller, and one of those which we love is Iceland. Our exclusive offers can help you find an exceptionally good value hotel in a great location in Iceland, allowing you to explore the bewitching scenery and enjoy everything this fascinating country has to offer walkers. Many hotels are in easy reach of the main airport, which can reduce the need for a hire car, while others are well-placed to arrange tours, visits and expeditions for you, so look out for those which boast a wide range of activities.
Walking and mountaineering further afield
If you’re looking for a great walking holiday outside of Europe, we can help you find the perfect location, with luxury hotels around the world. One fantastic option is Morocco, a popular tourist location with a wide range of amazing hotels – it is also within easy reach of the Atlas Mountains, and the Tourbek National Park. This can make for a strenuous but invigorating few days of walking and climbing, so why not get the best of both worlds by finding the perfect luxury hotel as the base for your holiday?
