High Point Holidays will continue to develop more guided and independent walking tours in the future, including self guided, self catering holidays in France.

Our guided walking, hiking and trekking holidays are based on the following principles.

  • Walks in quiet, off the beaten track destinations
  • Relaxed and informative guiding with plenty of time to enjoy the views and take pictures.
  • Great walks with lots of interest taking in the highlights of a region
  • An authentic local experience with small guest houses in historic properties where there is a warm and generous welcome and delicious meals.
  • A relationship with the local people through our guiding and choice of accommodation.
  • During your guided walking holiday we take care of everything from the moment you arrive at the pick up point until the moment your holiday is finished

In addition on our independent walking holidays in France and the UK, whether it be in the Alps, Beaujolais or Scotland, you’ll be provided with detailed walking notes with information about the region and interesting sites that you’ll not find in any tourist book. We take care of your luggage, transporting it from one guest house to the next while you enjoy your day’s walking.

As well as information on our independent and guided walking holidays, you’ll also find a number of other sections including useful information on what equipment you’ll need to bring on holiday, a frequently asked questions section and a top-tips section with relevant articles on how to stay safe on your walking trips and holidays, especially in the mountains and the alps. We also have up to date news on our walking and hiking holidays, slideshows and lots lots more!
