Frequently-asked questions about our Self-Guided holidays
How does a self-guided holiday work?
Our Self-Guided trips are curated with the same care as our group trips, but you won't travel with a group or tour leader. Instead, we'll provide you with detailed maps and GPX files when available so that you can navigate yourself. We'll also sort out the hotels, transfers and luggage transportation, taking all the planning and stress out of your holiday.
We offer two types of Self-Guided holiday; walking trips and cycling trips. Choose which type of active break you want, where you want to go and the grade to suit your ability and we'll arrange the rest.
How difficult are Explore Self-Guided tours?
All our Self-Guided trips are given a grade indicating its difficulty. If you're an occasional walker or cyclist looking for a relaxed walking or cycling holiday, go for an Easy or Moderate grade. Or if you're looking to challenge yourself, try one of our more challenging trips.
