Planning Your Own Walk

Buy Me a Coffee at

Part of the fun of going on a walking trip is getting it all planned. Well, we say fun. Actually, it can be quite stressful and a lot of work.

That's why we've pulled together a series of guides to help.

Each guide provides suggested itineraries, how to find accommodation and how to get to and from the trail by public transport. There's also recommended websites, guide books and maps too. Where appropriate you'll also find information on how to split up the walk, or where best to have a rest day.

As we've done all the walks listed on this page, you can be sure that each guide is written with the benefit of our experience. To ensure they're always as accurate as possible, we update them regularly. We always do a full review of each on an annual basis, and make adhoc reviews throughout the year.

All you have to do is pick the guide for your walk, and start planning your trip!
