Escorted Strolling and Exploring

Secret Hills Walking Strolling and Exploring holidays are designed for those who are still active and who want a holiday that combines a short country walk with some sightseeing and local culture. You will still want to explore, learn and enjoy the wonderful heritage and culture of the places we visit.  Strolling is mainly without much climbing or descending, not always completely flat, but no real strenuous sections - about 3.5/4 miles a day, in the mornings.  After lunch, we travel to view some historical place - or  beautiful gardens - dependent on the theme of the holiday.  We believe also that your Strolling holiday should be supported by excellent hotels and lovely food - nothing like a good deal of comfort after an exciting day's activity.

Why go Strolling and Exploring?

  • Culture and history
  • Strolling in magnificent scenery
  • Meet new friends and have a good social holiday
  • Personal attention at all times
  • Superb hotels/food - half board
  • No single supplement in the UK
  • Transport to walks / attractions included
  • Personalised guiding services

 In Europe, there will be a single supplement, and you pay for your lunches, but the overall price quoted DOES include flights and transfers.

We organize UK Strolling holidays in the Shropshire Hills (based in Church Stretton), the Derbyshire Dales (based in Hartington), historic Ironbridge (where excellent walking is combined with the history of the birth of our Industrial Revolution) , the Wye Valley and Cornwall with its lovely gardens.

In Europe, we organize Strolling holidays on the garden island of Madeira, alpine Slovenia and the magnificent historical island of Gozo. All are superb, with the Secret Hills philosophy of personal attention, small groups, lovely hotels and good food at its heart.

Let us take the strain - just relax, enjoy good company and being looked after well

What Others Said...

Majorca - October 2019. A gem of a company. I thought the whole holiday was brilliant and would not have changed a thing - except for the mosquito bites. All the walks were well planned, explained and included everyone in the group. It was good that we did the harder days just before and just after out day off. Hotel was very comfortable, and the staff were friendly. Good position in resort. Food was very good with lots of choices. All communications with Secret Hills Walking were very prompt and clear. Pre-holiday information all very clear, informative and was good to have mobile numbers – just in case. All well organised. Jill contacted me before I flew as well, which I appreciated. It’s the first time I have flown abroad by myself so was a little nervous, but I needn’t have worried as everything was so well planned. I definitely would reserve another holiday and recommend to others. I have filled the form in for another exiting adventure and can’t wait for it to be confirmed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for organising these walking holidays. You are a gem of a company and I am lucky to have found you.
