Explore Europe - take in the mountains, lakes, cites and culture of this great continent

European Walks

With The Wayfarers, you see the real Europe away from the crowds. You meet the people who live there, see its treasures, taste the exquisite cuisine and explore its highly varied landscapes, ranging from Alpine mountains, icy fjords and noble rivers to historic cities, wilderness areas, the savage Atlantic coast and the warm Mediterranean shore. Whatever you choose, it’s a pleasure to share the lifestyles and culture that have shaped Western Civilization for thousands of years.

As well as a full program of French and Italian Walks, we visit a selection of lesser-known European destinations. These include the unspoiled rural paradise of Slovenia, German Bavaria with its fairytale castles, the Austrian Alps where The Sound of Music was set, Switzerland and two Walks in the Czech Republic, a beautiful landscape and site of some of the most historic political upheavals in modern history.

In Croatia, our Walk takes you back to the Mediterranean as it used to be, a land of simple fishing villages, olive groves and small vineyards next to a chalky-blue sea.

Our dedicated Walk Managers and renowned Walk Leaders will be at your side wherever you choose to go, helping you to enjoy an amazing walking vacation.
