Japan self guided trekking vacation, Nakasendo Trail
From
US $985

We loved everything about Japan. The only negative observation was noting the overpackaging of goods, particularly with plastics. We think the Japanese people are beginning to realise the importance of tackling this problem. (more)Salim and Sheila Aftimos
Experiencing a completely different culture was the highlight. (more)John Gunston
The walks through the ancient forests of Japan were above expectation, but the highlight I think was staying in the Ryokan - the charm and character of the inns and our hosts and the total immersion into a traditional Japanese experience with their tatami rooms, onsen baths and local cuisine.

Traveling through the Archipelago was one of the most memorable parts of the vacation. (more)Felicity Bond

We were impressed with the beauty of Sweden and how easy it was to travel around. (more)Sharon Reardon
Self guided walking vacation in Montenegro
From
£600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Stunning views and dramatic scenery each day; the most memorable was probably walking down the hillside near Kotor with the backdrop of the mountains and the bay in front. Tips? Try to arrive early on the day of travel to orientate and do the first walk. Be self-sufficient - we did not see any other walkers one day and only 2 another and a similar number of cafes! Carry LOTS of water - we ran out when one descent took much longer than expected. Local benefits? Clearly... (more)Veronica Warner

Hard to choose between seeing the most spectacular sunrises from my terrace with a pot of coffee or standing on a high point on a nearby hill, able to see the sea on the horizon and the lunar landscape and mountains to my left. (more)Briony Turner
The highlight was the spectacular walks offering such amazing views. During our 5 days in Lubrin we did three of the long walks and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the foothills as well as high in the mountain tops, just stunning. (more)Annette Easton
The walking was the highlight. Very good value, excellent location but need a certain level of fitness, or at least an ability to manage a short, steep climb in and out of the village. (more)Denise Oakman

It was a perfect vacation... The lodging was excellent nestled in greens with lots of hiking and biking trails to choose from, all meticulously planned out by the owner Peter. Food was superb, prepared by Carolyn, Peter’s wife who ran the place immaculately. This place is actually perfect or simply lazing around for a few days, sipping on limitless wine and taking a dip in the pool. (more)Ricky Yeung
Top drawer! (more)Esther Quinlan
One of the best breaks I have ever had. Carolyn and Peter look after you so well. I am a solo traveler and sometimes you can feel isolated but not this time!!! (more)Margaret Parker

We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day. We went rafting on the Giffre on our day off, which was also great. (more)Ross Carne

Staying at Mount de Volt on the Piano del Tivano - great hosts, fantastic place to stay. (more)Anne Kinderlerer
We loved the scenery and the views of the lake during the walk...It was an interesting experience a lot tougher than we thought but was a great achievement to complete. (more)David Barton

Memorable parts? The landscapes. The walking. The people met along the way. Tips? I discovered that given my level of fitness and my desire to wander en-route, and stop and explore, my ideal walking distance per day is no more than 10 miles. Local benefits? Absolutely. Overall rating? It was very well organized. Went very smoothly from start to finish. The accommodations were lovely. A few places could do with room upgrade but the people were warm welcome and willingness... (more)Dominique Bousquet

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....

We have been on many walks throughout the world, however this is only our second self guided walk, but we thought it was particularly special.

The most memorable was walking beside the sea. Fabulous. Stages were the right length, comfortable but varied hotels. Lovely people. The trail is spectacular and I’m pleased we started from the beginning and saw some of the inland. Portugal is easier for vegetarians than other European countries. Fresh, wholesome food.
