Independent and Self-guided Walking Holidays

Undertaking a tour like the Tour du Mont Blanc or the Walker's Haute Route as a self-guided holiday may be a good option for you. Independent self-guided walking holidays have become very popular in recent years. A self-guided walking holiday is a hassle-free way of undertaking a trekking tour independently and without a guide or leader. On a self-guided trip, we plan your itinerary, book and pay for your accommodation and provide maps and detailed day-by-day route instructions and other practical information. You then undertake the actual trekking independently, in your own company and at your own pace.

If you're an experienced mountain walker who knows how to navigate and who prefers to undertake a trekking tour under your own steam, but don't have the time or the inclination to deal with the planning and booking, this may just be the perfect type of trip for you.

It's important to be aware, though, that on a self-guided trip you're on your own - there is no one to ask if you're in doubt about the navigation or to support you on wet, steep and/or technical terrain. There's no one to help if you have an accident or need help with the language in the mountain huts or with other practical issues along the tour. In good weather, when all goes well, this is not an issue, but you need to consider what to do in the case of bad weather, if you get caught out in the darkness, if there's a lot of snow, land slides or other issues with the trail conditions etc. If you're uncertain about these issues, a GUIDED trekking tour or walking holiday may be better for you.
