Those booking our holidays receive booklets with their maps and guidebooks, If you have general questions about how our holidays work day to day its worth looking at it online for more info.

Our commitments to our environment...
At Encounter Walking we work hard to provide sustainable and ethical walking holidays. We have a responsibility to do whatever we can to make the world a better place for future generations. Travel is a privilege. It offers the opportunity to discover the world, to make new connections and learn new things. But with this privilege comes a responsibility to do our best to protect our world, support all who live on it and to consider our impact on it.
