A walk is all we need

Most of these walks are short and easily included within longer itineraries. You might want to make the focus of your holiday just walking, but you might prefer to include walks within a wider sightseeing, cultural or wildlife holiday. These ideas show you just a very few of the many options there are available to you, so always ask us if we can include some walking in your holiday if you’re keen to get out and about.

Walking through Rainbow Valley in the Atacama Desert in late afternoon when the rocks were a wonderful mixture of greens, reds and blues - amazing!
