Easy walking trips for over 50s

Our easy and easy-to-moderate walking trips are the ideal starting point for over 50s who have never been on a walking holiday before. Enjoy good-quality paths at low altitude with the occasional ascent to a panoramic viewpoint. Explore clifftop walking trails and pristine golden beaches on a walking tour along Italy's Amalfi Coast, or chat with newfound friends as you wander along the wild flower-lined paths of Northern Cyprus
 

Moderate walking trips for over 50s

If you have a good level of fitness and can walk 3-7 hours a day with a few demanding ascents, our moderate walking trips will take you to some of the most enjoyable walking destinations in the world. 

Discover time-forgotten ancient villages and uncover picture-postcard views along Turkey's iconic Lycian Way, or embark on the famous pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain for a spiritual trek via remote rural farmland and medieval villages. 

For a walking adventure further afield, our treks in the Canary Islands combine towering volcanic sierras with black sand beaches and verdant cloud forests. And the island of Madeira's unique network of mossy levadas and cascading waterfalls provide the perfect backdrop for an active walking holiday. 
 

Challenging walking trips for over 50s

For over 50s who want a bit more of a challenge, you might consider a once-in-a-lifetime walking holiday to Peru to trek along the Inca Trail. With plenty of ascending, some rough terrain and camping en route, you'll need to be fit, but the opportunity to walk to the famous ruins of Machu Picchu is on many a hiker's bucket list. 

Self-guided walking holidays for over 50s

Don't fancy walking with a group, but also don't want to worry about route planning? Our self-guided walking holidays are an excellent option. Offering you maximum flexibility, you can choose the dates you travel, walk solo or with a partner/friends, and explore at your own pace. We'll provide you with detailed route guides and maps and even arrange for your luggage to be transferred to each overnight stop. 

Whether you walk the Rota Vicentina trail along the wild coastlines of Portugal, ascend Gran Canaria's highest peak on a Canary Islands walking tour, or hike through the lush valleys of Crete's White Mountains, we have plenty of self-guided walking trails suitable for travellers over 50.
