Self Guided Walking Holidays in Europe - Inn to Inn Self Guided Walking

A self guided walking holiday in Europe is one of the most popular active holiday experiences we offer thanks to the flexibility it provides. Usually requiring only two people to operate, and often with flexibility to choose your own departure date, a self guided holiday embodies the UTracks philosophy of exploring the world your way at your pace.

On all our self guided walking holidays in Europe we’ll take care of all the important logistics. We supply you with lodgings* in charming mountain huts, inns and 2, 3 or 4 star hotels (with private facilities) chosen for their local flavour; you will be provided with clear and detailed route descriptions, maps and local sightseeing information so you can plan your days walking ahead each day. We’ll also remove the hassle of luggage transfers by making sure they are moved to your next night’s accommodation for you. All you need to do is enjoy your walking holiday with the comfort of knowing that you have adequate time to explore as you wish and comfortably savour the sights and delights of the region.

Refer to our detailed trip notes for exact inclusions on your next self guided walking holiday with UTracks.

 

*Prices are based on a minimum of 2 people travelling together in twin share accommodation unless otherwise specified (eg dormitory style).
