If travelers are looking for an independent travel experience, with all of the comforts of a pre-planned trip, On Foot Holidays offers just the trip with its European walking tours.
Designed by a “Route Advisor,” a local who creates the itinerary to showcase the best parts of each destination, these tours are tested for difficulty and feature local offerings, from food and wine options to small hotels, farmhouses and village rooms. On Foot provides travelers with the route information and arranges for luggage transfers between each point.
A sample of one of the walks is Lycian Way (rates from $1,086 pp) in Turkey, which is a medium to hard trail. The 7-night itinerary, designed by guidebook author Kate Clow, goes along the Turquoise Coast starting at a mountain hotel near Antalya, down the coast of Phaselis, past the beaches to Chimaera and to the ruins at Olympus. The journey ends along the coast at the lighthouse of Kilidonya. Rates include accommodations, daily breakfast, four dinners, five picnics and luggage transfers. Guests can also extend this trip to Istanbul.
On Foot Holidays pays agents $65 per booking. For more information, visit onfootholidays.com.
