Welcome to Collett's

Welcome to Collett's, a genuine walking holiday specialist since 1997 providing the perfect escape for walkers of all fitness levels.
Explore the great outdoors just as you wish, whether you seek out idyllic flower meadows or high rocky drama; whether you self-guide or walk in a group. Collett’s was built on its flagship holidays in the Italian Dolomites, now available in Austria & Switzerland too. It's a uniquely flexible formula, which brings people back year after year. Arrive and depart on the dates of your choice; decide daily whether to join walks of your chosen grade or self-guide; stay where you feel most comfortable: from luxury hotels to self-catering simplicity. But whatever type of holiday you choose to book with us, we will look after you every step of the way, getting you off the beaten track into overwhelming landscapes on holidays you will never forget.

Destination Guides

Collett's was built on a passion for the great outdoors with its origins in the mountains. Our walks inspire everyone differently. The post-walk satisfaction levels amongst our guests are the same, whether they have been meandering in idyllic flower-strewn meadows, or trekking vertiginous trails in the high rocky reaches. Even at sea level, Collett's delivers - just ask anyone who has hiked our version of the Camino di Santiago, or rollercoastered on the Exmoor Explorer. The point is: the walks come first and we make it our business to know what inspires you, so that every destination we feature will be a winner for you. In these destination guides we attempt to lure you to Collett's by giving you an irresistible, yet real, taste of these beautiful places.
