In France and England, walking tours began with pilgrimages centuries ago, and we often follow scenic footpaths that connect lovely villages. While some walking tour operators like to walk all day or from inn to inn, at Classic Journeys, we prefer to select from a range of walking options and other choices. If you like to fall into the tempo of the places you visit and experience things on your international outdoor adventure travels you never expected, please join us.
