The nature of a walking holiday gives everyone an ‘up close and personal’ experience of every destination with a choice of around 200 Ramblers Walking Holidays throughout the year and a range of walking grades to match all fitness levels and preferences.

The Cruise & Walk programme offers a unique holiday experience, pioneered by Ramblers Walking Holidays and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. Wake up each day sailing into a new destination and then bypass the usual cruise ship excursions to walk the nearby coast and hills or explore cultural towns and cities.

Why Book a Ramblers Walking Holiday

Exploring the world in a small group is one of the most sociable holiday experiences there is. Fellow walkers come from a wide range of backgrounds and ages and all share a passion for exploring new places, walking, the outdoors and for making new friends.
