These walks are popular for a reason: well maintained, easily accessible, lots of accommodation options and mind blowing scenery too! However, this does mean that they will get very busy in the peak summer season and accommodation gets booked up months in advance. Take the hassle out of your adventure and allow us to organise it all for you.

If the thought of sleeping in a tent, cooking noodles for dinner and carrying your own pack doesn’t appeal then there is another way. These hikes offer luxury accommodation, fine dining and even the ability to transport your luggage between overnight destinations. All you have to do is the walking bit! Personal guides, travel by helicopter, gourmet cuisine: it’s all possible. Contact us for advice on the best luxury hiking experience for you and allow us to set it all up for you.
