Highlights of the Ramblers bucket-list worthy walking tours:

  • Cotswolds: (7 Days)

Just 100 miles west of London, the Cotswolds is an area of England steeped in history and old world charm, complete with thatched cottages and ornately spired churches. For 2012 Ramblers adds Chipping Campden to the tour, a village dating back to the 14th century. Rolling 'wolds,' beech forests, and modest elevations create a picturesque landscape perfectly suited for Rambler's gentlest series of walks, with walkers ambling five to ten miles daily.

  • England's Lake District: (7 or 8 Days)

Ramblers offers two itineraries in the heart of the lake district's national park. In England's Lake District Tour walkers travel daily by minibus to discover the splendors of the region with walks of four to eight miles, returning nightly to the same superb lodgings. The Inn-to-Inn tour allows walkers to explore the same breathtaking scenery with moderate five to ten mile walks, changing venues each evening.

  • England's Coast to Coast: (16 Days)

From the Irish Sea to the North Sea, England's Coast to Coast Tour leads travelers through the diverse landscapes of England's countryside, highlighting rugged mountains and cerulean lakes, culminating with the spectacular scenery of the island's coastal regions.

  • Scotland: (8 Days)

Ramblers offers three distinct tours that explore Scotland's magical and rugged highlands. Travelers can also opt to spend time in the mysterious Celtic mists of the islands of Skye, Lewis, and Harris.

  • Wales: Welsh Frontiers (8 Days)

Nestled between mountain ranges and the craggy coastline in the southwest of the British Isles, Wales presents a spectacular backdrop for this active expedition. Ramblers' guides lead walkers over trails used throughout Welsh history with the tour concluding in a walk hugging the stunning Pembrokeshire coast.
