The Americas offer an incredibly varied landscape of mountains, coastlines, lakes and canyons, and it is best enjoyed on foot. For those with a passion for walking or trekking holidays, or simply those with an extra taste for adventure, our walking holidays in Canada and America are the perfect choice. If you ask virtually any of our tour leaders and most of our travellers to name their favourite activity on tour, the walks and hikes in the National Parks, Indian lands and wilderness areas invariably rank first.

There is truly no more inspiring, exhilarating and rewarding way to experience some of the most captivating and wondrous areas of this continent. So much so, we decided to design complete walking and trekking holidays around them.

Walking & Hiking Tours
  • Hiking for all abilities

    Hiking for all abilities Our walking tours are designed for active adults and offer a well-paced mix of walks for all levels of fitness. Most walks are of moderate to strenuous difficulty and range from three to five hours in length. For the less adventurous, there are often shorter, easy to moderate hikes up to two hours long in some destinations.

    Our leaders enjoy spending as much time as possible on the trail with their groups. As interests and capabilities vary, our leaders will typically guide day hikes according to a group's needs and the difficulty of particular hikes. If you're serious about walking and up for a challenge, we offer a specialist walking holiday on the John Muir Trail.

    With two tour leaders on each of our USA guided tours and Canada walking holidays, they will either guide separate hikes or offer additional activities and support. It will not always be possible for every hiker to be accompanied by a guide when groups divide up to explore different trails. Our tour leaders will handle all the driving and tour logistics en route to ensure you maximise your time on holiday.
