Trekking and Walking Holidays

Explore the world on foot for an adventure like no other

Every journey starts with a single step...

If your ideal adventure involves getting off the beaten tourist trail and using your two legs to do so, our exciting collection of walking and trekking holidays are just the ticket. Ranging from leisurely walking holidays around Croatia's beautiful Istria Peninsular to epic adventures such as the trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal, our tours cover a range of destinations with a variety of itineraries to cater to walkers and trekkers of all abilities.

Difficulty Ratings

There are many different factors that contribute to the difficulty of a tour, including how many days you’ll be trekking for consecutively and the distance covered, the terrain, altitude and weather conditions, in addition to the type of accommodation.

Accommodation on our Trekking and Walking Holidays

Our trekking holidays are adventurous by nature and often include travel to remote areas, within developing countries, where hotels often do not approach the standards of the West. You will need to be able to live without creature comforts at times, as many of our trekking holidays include some basic homestays, dormitory accommodation, or camping in the wild with no fixed facilities. You’ll find more information on the accommodation for each trip in the tour Trip Notes under the header 'Accommodation'.

Homestay accommodation - Trekking & Walking Holidays - On The Go Tours

Homestays & Dormitories

In off the beaten track locations some of our treks include homestay or dormitory style accommodation, where sleeping arrangements may be communal with several people sharing each room. Whilst the facilities are basic the unique experience of staying in these locations will more than make up for any discomfort. Bedding down in a monastery in Myanmar or in a homestay in the hill tribe villages of Vietnam and Laos, is an unforgettable experience and provides a fascinating insight into the local culture and way of life.

Simple hotel accommodation - Trekking & Walking Holidays - On The Go Tours

Simple hotels

On our easier walking and trekking holidays the emphasis is on sightseeing and learning about the region’s history, culture and cuisine and the majority of nights will be spent in simple, yet comfortable, hotels, guesthouses and lodges, with en suite bedrooms and all the necessary amenities. These simple hotels are no frills and equivalent to 2-3 star Western standard.

Designated camp site in India - Trekking and Walking Holidays - On The Go Tours

Designated Camp Sites

At the other end of the scale, our tougher trekking holidays usually involve hikes for several days through remote regions, often at high altitude, with tented accommodation and porters. Many of our trekking and walking holidays involve a number of nights camping. On these trips we provide a full trekking service with a dedicated support team to set up camp each day, prepare meals, transfer equipment and baggage. Two person tents and camping equipment is provided, usually just with the exception of sleeping bags (please refer to the packing list on the Trip Notes for further information).

Wild camp in Morocco - Trekking and Walking Holidays - On The Go Tours

Wild Camping

Some trips, such as ‘Trek The Sahara’, involve a number of nights ‘wild camping’ where we set up camp in a scenic spot, which is not a designated camp site with facilities. When wild camping there will be a portable toilet tent and a mess tent where we gather to eat. Getting back to nature and camping in spectacular remote locations is an incredible wilderness experience and many travellers choose to sleep out under the stars, rather than in their tents.

Is this tour for you?

In order to properly assess whether one of our walking and trekking holidays is suitable for you it is essential that you read the ‘Is This Tour For You?’ paragraph at the bottom of the tour itinerary and read the tour Trip Notes to see what each day entails – distances covered, ascent, descent, time spent trekking and the accommodation provided.

The group size on our walking and trekking holidays is limited to a maximum of 16 travellers and these trips attract a lot of solo travellers, in addition to couples and small groups of friends. We welcome adults of all ages, as long as you have a good level of fitness and an ability to trek for several hours a day at a moderate pace with the group. A great sense of adventure and an easy-going, fun loving nature is also essential.

All of our treks and walks include the services of an experienced, professional tour leader and you’ll be joined by fellow trekkers from around the world, making them an international affair and giving you the opportunity to meet people of different nationalities.
