This is a nicely made little multi-tool, but it is much smaller than I expected it to be. No problem, the price was not expensive. All the components work well and the knives are sharp, b...

European Walking Holidays vary depending on the holiday goer, so whether you are looking to take in the warmth of Lanzarote or a more adventurous trek to the foothills of Mont Blanc, there is always a walking holiday for you. The idea of a walking holiday is that you get exactly what you want out of it.

rockclimbingChoose to take a guided tour of the destination of your choice led by an expert of the area. Often, there are fixed start dates for these group walking holidays, however there are flexibilities, you can create your very own tailor made tour with your group or family. You might also wish to choose to explore an area independently with the help of maps and walk descriptions prepared for you by the holiday provider. The beauty of a self-guided tour is its flexibility and can begin wherever and whenever you are ready.

If you are the type of person who not only enjoys panoramic views of some of the most beautiful scenery the world has to offer, but of that perfect worthy of a postcard home photograph, look no further than Europe in all of its magnificence. From woodland rambles along leafy lanes for the walker more inclined to view scenery and create the perfect scrapbook of all of your rambling adventures, to challenging mountain, gorge and ridge hikes for the more adventurous explorer, looking to immerse themselves in all aspects of whatever country they choose to explore; all our walking holidays offer interest-packed insights into some of the most beautiful and unspoilt corners of the world.

A walking holiday gives you the opportunity to slow down a bit. A walking holiday is a healthy and excellent way to see the beauty of your surroundings, delve into a little history, digest, explore and discover places off the beaten track that many others would never get to see or would never even know existed without such rambles and the experts at hand with the knowledge, to make these new surroundings even more fascinating.

One thing that needs to be ticked off of your checklist is getting fit for your walking holiday; it will increase your enjoyment when you’re on your holiday and help prevent injury. Some of the most important questions you need to ask yourself are:

  1. home2How many days will you walk?
  2. What distances will you cover?
  3. Are there rest days?
  4. How much will you carry?
  5. What’s the terrain like?

And when you have these questions ticked you can begin to really start planning what walking holiday you’re going to set off on.

If you are new to the whole walking holiday experience, you might find yourself asking questions which you think might either seem a bit trivial or obvious, however, these are exactly the questions that often are the most important.

1. Choose your trail and get yourself the right maps for it.
One of the most important things about a walking holiday is that you do not get yourself lost, so make sure you have all the correct maps, either digital or ordinary. A digital hand-held device can be useful for a current fix on your location however the beauty and lifesaving feature of a map is that it doesn’t run out of batteries; so decide whether you want to go digital or whether you want to go with a map. But the two can always work well used together.

2. Plan your route.
Have realistic goals that you would set yourself for your routes. So plan how long you want to walk each day, it is also a good idea to plan a rest day.

3. Book your accommodation
Whether it is a campsite, a B&B or a hotel, there will always be something to cater for a budget. There are different ways to go about this; you can decide where you will be resting on a particular day and find the accommodation best suited to you or if you’re thinking about just one place to stay, get in quick so you don’t have to miss out of visiting somewhere because you can’t find a room!

4. Prepare yourself
Always practice walking before your holiday so aren’t too shocked when you arrive.

5. Take the right outdoor gear
The right gear is essential. Waterproofs, a rucksack, walking boots and navigation devices are obvious. But don’t forget about water and snacks for the duration of the days walk.

6. Think about food
This depends on the location and your accommodation, if you’re staying in a hotel or B&B then food might not be such a problem but if you’re camping; look around for local stores or pubs and retaurants.

7. Don’t forget about your start and finish points
It can be all to easy to forget that you’ll be starting and finishing at different spots. Check out the rail and bus travel in advance – unless you have a willing friend or family member to help you out.

8. But most importantly. Enjoy Yourself!!
