Encounter Walking provides all walkers with a tailor made itinerary service so our Short Walking Breaks can be created for ANY section of ANY walk - the choice is yours!
Our walking advisors will help put together suggestions for you to consider that mean you can get “your walk your way” and wander the route you want rather than one that others find easiest to arrange.
Our Walking Short Break Service is simple - We organise your break with exactly the same effort we put into a two week holiday - if you are away for only 3 or 4 nights we understand that its even more important for you to get your accommodation, route, transfers to the trail and experience right!
So head to our interactive map to compare overviews of the main walking routes and just let us know which is your ideal short break route and we can advise and price on which section will make the best use of your time.
