Why Wayfarers

The Wayfarers Badge


'Wayfaring', the ultimate in slow travel, means absorbing each destination up close, on foot and with friends.

On a Wayfarers' walking vacation you travel with a small group of like-minded people under the guidance of our renowned Walk Leaders. After 30 years in the travel business we believe that no other tour operator big or small has guides like ours. 

We offer superb value for money, everything is included, from meals and drinks to accommodation and guides.

The Wayfarers Badge

Our wonderful itineraries are unique to The Wayfarers. We develop all of our own trips personally and update them afresh every year. Even in well-visited areas, we offer inspired routes and local contacts that you won't find with any other tour company.

Walking with The Wayfarers brings direct benefit to the people who welcome us so warmly to their region. As the ultimate 'slow travelers' we believe that meeting and spending time with those who care for their heritage is good for everyone. Our support nurtures local economies and we gain greater insight into local culture.

Cinque Terre ~ Italy's Fabled Five Lands

Spring Hiking

Breathe deeply on our Walk in Cinque Terre - because the Italian coastline will simply take your breath away!

Walking along the path amidst the terraced vineyards (a UNESCO World Heritage site) in the Cinque Terre features on the cover of our 2015 brochure.

The Ligurian Sea - the Mediterranean on Italy's western shores - sparkles in the sunlight and impossibly pretty villages scrabble for attention in a hiker's paradise.
