About our Holidays

 

Welcome

We are excited to be back to bring you a programme of holidays that feature carefully selected walks, that provide wonderful opportunities to connect with other women, and leave you feeling refreshed and revived!

We specialise in small groups to ensure our guides can give maximum attention to our guests. Our guides are there to encourage women to walk a little longer, walk a little higher and get the most out of their time away with WalkingWomen – all making sure everyone feels safe.

Our walks will introduce you to the local area and our priority is to work with local guides and partners who have in-depth knowledge of the locality.

All accommodation is chosen for its location and for the comfort it can provide – we all need comfort and relaxation at the end of a day outdoors.

Feedback is essential for us and we will develop our holiday programme listening to what you say.

Loyal customers

We would like to see people return again and again and feel part of the WalkingWomen community. We will be offering benefits and discounts as we build our network, so watch this space. We have set up a WalkingWomen Facebook community for those who want to stay connected this way and share stories.

Travel Arrangements

Travel to the start of the holiday is arranged by you as many of our guests like to extend their holiday. If you need help, WalkingWomen has a longstanding relationship with our travel concierge who can assist with flights and trains or if you would like help extending your holiday. Get in touch to discuss your plans – helen.wheatley@travelcounsellors.com

Please arrive at your accommodation on Day 1 of your trip, in time for the evening welcome and dinner together. Usually, the welcome will be at 6.30 pm followed by dinner, but each holiday itinerary will confirm the specific details. If people arrive earlier our guides will sometimes do an introductory afternoon/evening walk. Rooms are usually available from 3 pm. Our guides encourage groups to eat together but it is always a personal choice.

The walks usually start after breakfast each day and by 10 am at the latest. Their length depends on the grade and sometimes we might change a walk because of the weather. The walk on the last day is shorter, and we are generally back by 2pm, so please bear this in mind when making travel arrangements.

On most WW overseas holidays your guide will meet you in Arrivals at the destination airport. We include the transfer to your accommodation on practically all overseas holidays. Please see your holiday details sheet for the time of this transfer and/or the flights that it meets.

Accommodation

Details of the accommodation are provided in the information pack about each holiday. All are chosen for quality, comfort and location. Where we are walking in more remote locations they are likely to be ‘rifugio’ or mountain huts on some nights.

We have some holidays which will be focused on wellbeing and include spas and sometimes swimming pools. We are looking for women-run hotels and those with something unique and special. We book specific rooms but occasionally hotels may change rooms at the last minute which is beyond our control. We will do everything we can to avoid this and work with hotels to build partnerships for the long term. Your feedback will help us with this.

When booking please make sure you confirm the type of room and the number of rooms you would like. We do not charge a single supplement, however, sometimes our partners do, and where this is applicable we make this clear. We appreciate your privacy and comfort and do not put people who don’t know each other in shared rooms.

Dogs

WalkingWomen has been created to cater for the needs (and safety) of women who want to walk. Assistance dogs (e.g ‘blind’ dogs, ‘hearing’ dogs etc) are permitted, so do let us know so we can make sure the accommodation is completely suitable.

Non-assistance dogs are permitted on a number of our holidays which are clearly marketed as “Doggy holidays”. Dogs will only be allowed to join walks if they are well-behaved around people and sheep, are under control at all times, and are not likely to be experienced as threatening due to their size or breed.

Please note,  if your guide feels that your dog is endangering or annoying to other women, you will be asked to make other arrangements, even if it means that you cannot join the walk. For this reason, please consider carefully whether your dog is sufficiently well-behaved and non-threatening to others before bringing him/her on a holiday.

Insurance is essential on all holidays

When booking we will ask for evidence of your insurance. If you need help we are working with Emerald Insurance who offer travel insurance at competitive rates and cover for Covid cancellations.
