Discover a variety of new destinations to walk with your group with Ramblers Walking Holidays. 

Walking holidays and adventures in Armenia, Everest, Ethiopia and Iran are just some of the 55 new itineraries that have been added to next summer’s offering.

The programme features holidays for complete beginners through to more seasoned hikers, with all guided walking experiences taking place both on and off the beaten track. 

Kevin O’Regan, managing director of Ramblers Walking Holidays, said: “We’re hugely excited about our new programme, which features more new holidays than ever before.

“We’ve worked hard to ensure that we have adventures to suit most walking levels and abilities, delving beneath the surface of an array of wish-list destinations, many of which are only accessible on foot.

“I’m a firm believer that ‘the world’s more beautiful on foot’ and with these inspirational itineraries led by talented leaders with a shared passion for exploring, there is some fantastic opportunities to choose from.”

European highlights

Small groups can have a go at hiking through the continent’s deepest river canyon, sometimes referred to as ‘The Grand Canyon of Provence’, on Gorges du Verdon in France.

Keen walkers can also follow in the footsteps of ancient pilgrims in Turkey on the St Paul’s Trail & the Taurus Mountains, plus you can walk through the heart of Portugal’s wine growing region as part of Portugal’s Ribatejo & Silver Coast itinerary.
