Self-guided walking holidays by On Foot Holidays

Self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking routes scattered across Europe, from Portugal to Turkey and from Andalucia to England, often in little-known regions. All routes are designed by local people, and are graded to offer something for all types of walker, from the experienced hiker to the Sunday stroller. Your accommodation is likely to be small, charming and friendly, often special, rarely luxurious. Your luggage will be transported from one accommodation to await your arrival at the next, so you need only carry a light day pack.

This is the true centre of Basque culture - the well-kept villages of the western Pyrenees, a border zone with strong French influences too. Be prepared for a unique and somewhat incomprehensible language, and an outgoing friendliness resulting from the pride of being born Basque.
