Our self-guided walking holidays are perfect if you have a sense of adventure, but want to take this at your own pace, in your own time. You may want to take a bit more time over lunch, at a great sightseeing spot or leave a little later in the morning to give yourselves a more relaxed start. Each of our self-guided walking holidays come with comprehensive walk packs that enable effortless navigation of the hand selected hikes which form part of your holiday.

What to Expect on our Self-Guided Walking Holidays.


Our self-guided walking holidays have become more and more popular as walker’s sense of adventure has grown over time. Sometimes, being at one with nature and enjoying the peace, tranquility and splendor of the outdoors, with only your walking companion(s) for company is the only way to go. Collett’s understand this, and has put together a wide range of self-guided walking holidays for you to enjoy.

These holidays come in three different types; centre-based, hut-to-hut and village-to-village. Regardless of which type you choose, you’ll be provided with a comprehensive walk pack that’s both sent digitally before travel, and also available in physical form at your first hotel.

The walk packs are your complete guide to the hikes that you will take throughout your holiday, and contain all of the necessary information you’ll need to navigate your way around.

Our Walk Packs


The contents of the walk packs you receive on your self-guided walking holidays differ from holiday to holiday, but you’ll typically get the following information:

  • Detailed walk notes to ensure easy navigation thought out your walks
  • Supporting maps
  • Destination handbook

In addition to the above, the majority of our holidays also offer complimentary apps or GPX files, so you can use your smart device to help you navigate throughout your holiday, too.
