We loved the whole thing - staying in the traditional inns, the self-guided hiking, the beautiful scenery, the hot spring bathing areas and, of course, the food. The hike meanders through forests, bamboo groves, and through villages and hamlets, so there is a wonderful glimpse of old Japan to see. (more)Joanne Heeson

Germany and Austria hiking vacation, self guided
From
US $1,014
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The scenery throughout the trip was wonderful and the most impressive was that everyday the trails were different from the others. Being a fairly small area it was not the same scenery everyday which is something we did not expect. Tips? Use the information booklet received in the mail before your trip, the directions are way more accurate than the one you will receive upon arrival in green packet. We rented E bikes in Weidach and rode through the woods to Seefeld,... (more)Dylia Sasso

From
£559
excluding flights
All of the hiking was wonderful and the beauty of the area was inspiring. (more)Sarah Hannay
The walks (Amalfi coast and Capri) in a landscape as rocky as green (with flowers).We stayed two nigts in Capri (which is really preferable in comparison with a normal day tour to Capri - it gives you the freedom of some walks outside the mainstreams). (more)Walter Kagi
The gardens and views at Villa Rufolo and Villa Ciambrone in Ravello were breathtaking and beautiful. And our favorite walk was the walk through the Valley of the Mills to Pontone - a lovely combination of walking through the many steps and paths in the town of Amalfi, and a woodland walk by a stream with waterfalls and picturesque ruins of old stone mills.

Trekking in Ethiopia, nr Lalibela
From
US $205
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Arrving at the first village on day one of the trek - incredible setting and the most spectacular place to have a cup of tea anywhere in Ethiopia! Tips? Take some alternative nibbles for when you tire of injera. Wear high factor sunscreen - it's high up so it might not feel hot but you burn quicker. Drink lots of water. Local benefits? Yes, we were told 60% of the money goes to the community. Our trekking had minimal impact on the local environment, though... (more)Joe Downie

Shakespeares Way & Thames Path walking vacation
From
£595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? During the course of the week one cannot fail to be impressed by the sights seen on the Thames Path, sadly the planned programme didn't allow time to visit these places. Tips? To make sure that the daily walks are within their capabilities, even though the paths are on the level. The Thames path is well maintained but it was noticeable as you approached London, through London and to the east that a number of the signs had been vandalised/pointing in the wrong direction....

Hiking holiday in St Lucia
From
£929
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the top of Gros Piton. Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? The whole issue of environmentally friendly tourism is a complex one. In many ways there are benefits in that local people get much needed employment and sometimes improved amenities and infrastructure. But these changes don't always benefit those most in need and fail to filter down to ordinary people. We hiked off the beaten track and saw parts of the island that the 'normal' tourist (whatever...
