5 Popular Walking Tours to Book Today With A Walker

Imagine Captain James Cook stumbling upon New Zealand’s picturesque Marlborough Sounds in the late 17th century, and you can begin to get a feel for this remarkable region. The Queen Charlotte Track is a stunning slice of paradise, with untouched beech forests, cerulean mosses, graceful ferns, peaceful streams that flow over colourful stepping stones, and stunning vistas as far as the eye can see.

Australia Walking Tour: Murray River

Walking tours of Australia would not be complete without a glimpse of wildlife like foxes, birdlife, kangaroos, and koalas — and this walking tour does not disappoint. Based on a houseboat in secluded coves on the Murray River in South Australia, the four-day, three-night tour features comfortable accommodations, easy terrain, and the best wine and food the region has to offer. Experienced guides help you navigate carefully researched routes along the river, creeks, wetlands, lagoons, and even through ancient red gum forests — with exclusive access to private property and conservancy areas. Climb the awe-inspiring red cliffs, and end your day aboard the houseboat with wine and a gourmet meal featuring fresh local fare.

France Walking Tour: Bordeaux Villages & Vineyards

Bordeaux and Gironde are two of the most beautiful and renowned wine regions in France, with trails that meander through sun-kissed countryside vineyards. Start your walking tour of France with a circuit walk of the UNESCO World Heritage area of Saint Emilion, renowned for its cultural landscape dedicated to wine-making. Continue your journey through charming wine villages and vineyards that dot the region, such as Pomerol and Sauternes, where you can sip world-class wine and enjoy breathtaking views. With many a wine château and a variety of accommodation, this region needs to be on your bucket list.

Walk the Camino in Spain: Camino de Santiago

Take a step (or several) back in time as you walk the Camino, Spain’s epic pathway across the Iberian Peninsula in the Northwest of Spain. Once traversed by European priests, monarchs, and peasants, whose pilgrimages to the tomb of St. James at Santiago de Compostela inspired the Christian Renaissance, the route allows for self-paced exploration in stages; choose to do all five legs of the 800-kilometre journey, which typically takes walkers about a month to complete, or select one or two for a shorter adventure. Along the way, enjoy world-class wine, historic landmarks, quaint villages, and an unforgettable stroll through history.

Tours in Africa: Tanzania – Serengeti Safari

If you’re looking for more adventure, tours in Africa are the way to go — after all, you’ll need the extra time to explore the region's varied habitats, vast plains, rolling hills, and spectacular wildlife. The stunning Tanzania and Serengeti tour takes place in August and September to catch a rare glimpse of the Great Migration as the largest animal herds on the planet answer the instinctual call to move in a never-ending natural pattern in search of fresh grazing grounds. With all meals included and accommodation situated close to the seasonal game migrations, you’ll never miss a moment of the action. A highlight of this tour is a walk with the local Maasai people.
