Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented demand for accommodation in the UK, we have taken the decision to extend the period we require to book a holiday from 6 weeks to 8 weeks.


Whilst this does give us time to book your walking holiday, it is essential that you understand the current situation for all 2022 holidays.
