On the Trail

On each of our self-guided walking holidays, you’ll experience the stunning scenery of England at your own pace.

Self-guided walking holidays in England are the perfect blend of immersion in England’s magical landscapes, hiking at your own pace and the freedom to explore anything of interest along the way without the feeling that you’re holding anyone else up.

Let Us Take Care of The Details

On a Wilderness England self-guided tour, you might be walking on your own but you’ve got the support of 24-hour assistance from the office team. We also provide you with route notes, maps and luggage transfer arranged in advance. Each route has been painstakingly researched and organised to take in the very best of the region. Our self-guided itineraries make sure to acquaint you with the area’s history and sites of interest.

Journey from the doors of one cosy accommodation to another, each offering a warm welcome after a lovely day on the trail. Long-distance walking trails like Hadrian’s Wall and The Cotswolds Way are renowned for their natural and cultural beauty and are particular favourites.

You certainly don’t need to be an expert hiker to take on a self-guided holiday, however, you do need to be more self-reliant. To book any of these trips, you must be travelling with at least one other person. If you are travelling on your own, we hope that you will be interested in joining one of our small group guided walking holidays

Our holidays reviewed in your own words...



Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us. Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That’s why we read each of our client’s reviews and although we don’t respond to all of them, if it’s glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.
