Long-distance walking isn’t something you should attempt without preparation. For comfort and success, you need to build strength and stamina, buy the correct hiking gear, learn about proper nutrition and hydration, and understand the required fitness levels and terrain you’ll be walking on.

Whether you are preparing for your first long-distance walk or are a seasoned walker, we’ll support you all the way!

We’ve got training guides, expert tips, free events and more to help you choose a trip that’s right for you and complete your walking adventure with a smile and energy left over.

Walk Prep

Exclusive details to help you prepare

Training Brochures

All our multi-day walks require a suitable level of physical preparation. Walking for many hours over successive days carrying a daypack is likely to be very different from your current walking schedule.

We recommend you undertake a training program for at least 3 months leading up to your departure.

Check out our essential free training guides to help you get walking fit, tailored for each destination.
