Why choose a Collett's Walking Holiday ?

A Collett’s walking holiday is uniquely flexible: arrive and depart on the dates of your choice; stay for as long as you wish; choose a delightful hotel or a self catering apartment in one of our five majestic mountain destinations.

Then – day to day – you can choose whether to self guide or join other guests on free and optional organised walks. Each day – except Wednesdays – throughout our 4 month summer season, we organise a hard high level trek and also a moderate easier walk. Both are rich in flora, fauna and breathtaking scenery. In the Dolomites, we also offer flower walks, painting and easier rambles.

For self guiding, our impressive ‘Ideas & Information Files’ document 40 or more local walks (from idyllic strolls to dramatic high trails) plus suggestions for bike rides, scenic drives, places of interest and other alpine activities. You simply choose the walk that takes your fancy.

You plan your days each evening at Office Hour, which is optional and informal. Over maps and a pre-dinner drink, you can chat to us about the following day’s organised walks. You can seek out ideas for self-guided walking and other days out. You can browse reference books and book locally-supplied alpine activities – or simply enjoy a sociable drink after a good day out in the mountains. Either way, our extensive local knowledge will help you create a succession of memorable days out and each evening you can enjoy delicious food and good company with everything in place for the next day. Lazy days are fine by us too and it’s easy to relax in these idyllic mountain retreats.
