'Daypack Hikes' - Guided Paths and Trails


Frequently Asked Questions

Can you tell me more about how to reach the tour base?

You must make their own way to the town or village where the tour is based (and from your accommodation to/from the daily meeting point), and are responsible for making your own travel arrangements. We hope that as many guests as possible will travel by public transport, so travel information appears on the 'Our tour base' page for each tour. Some useful travel links appear opposite.

Please note that if you are completing more than one section of a two part holiday (i.e., the Coast to Coast or the Wales Coast Path, for example) travel between the two bases is your responsibility.

Please contact us if you feel that we can help with additional travel information specific to your journey.
