Ideas for walks and hikes | To travel
If you enjoy spending time outdoors and engage in regular physical activity, consider going for a walk or hike on your next vacation. You might not cover as much ground on foot, but you will get an intimate glimpse of a small part of the world.
While your Travel Leaders travel advisor can prepare a personalized walking or hiking itinerary for you, there are some benefits to joining a tour group. You will be accompanied by an expert guide who knows the route, will make sure you stay safe, and can enhance your experience with details of what you see.
You won’t have to worry about where to go next, how to get there or where to stay. And you will be with a group of people who share your interests.
The most important factor to consider when choosing a tour is to make sure the pace matches your level of fitness. Tour operators will have information on the amount of activity required for each trip, such as how far you will walk or walk each day, a description of the terrain, and the altitude level.
You can choose from a range of options.
Other things to consider are the length of the tour, the size of the group, how much free time you’ll have, and whether the route ticks off everything you want to see and do.
