Guided Walking Holidays in Europe – Small group walking tours

A guided small group walking holiday is ideal for travellers who prefer the camaraderie of like-minded walkers and appreciate the local knowledge imparted by expert guides.  Your walking guide is with you from the time your walking holiday commences until it concludes. On a guided walking tour you’ll share memories and laughs with travellers around the world who also appreciate the benefits of exploring Europe by foot.

Depending on your chosen style of walking tour, the maximum group size on most of our walking holidays range from 4 to 16 participants. As with our Self Guided walking holidays, we handle all the logistics. 

On a UTracks walking tour in Europe, travelling in a small group does not mean your experience is tied to the rest of those in your group. Each day there is time set aside to go off exploring on your own.  Our walking holidays really are a great way to hike Europe’s lesser known trails and discover untrodden treasures in the safety and comfort of a small group and expert local leader.

Whilst we refer to our guided walking trips as our "Inn to Inn" program, you may find yourself walking from "hut to hut" in the French Alps or from "hotel to hotel" in Provence, or experiencing a "centre based" trip like our Douro Valley Walk. Our accommodation - whether it be a charming country inn, pension, mountain hut, guesthouse, atmospheric hotel or B&B - is selected for the local atmosphere it offers to ensure you maximise your European walking experience.
