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.
