End each day in a different village, where you’ll find your luggage waiting for you.

For those who want the range and access of our hut-to-hut walking holidays but prefer less rustic accommodation, our village-to-village walking holidays combine a sense of adventure with all the charms and amenities of traditional villages. You’ll hike point-to-point on a route that showcases different trails and locations each day, and arrive each night to the comforts and delights of a new hotel, where your luggage will be there waiting for you.

These trips are crafted with all the care and expertise that defines Collett’s’ reputation, and come with seamless logistical support around transfers, planning and excess baggage. If you are after an even more adventurous holiday, where you stay high up in mountain rifugios every night, then take a look at our great range of hut-to-hut walking holidays.

If the idea of staying in the same accommodation as a walking base each night is more your thing, then we also have a great range of centre-based walking holiday options, too.
