Headwater is a specialist tour operator, offering some of the finest walking holidays for the over 50s. Inspired by gastronomy, culture and natural beauty, we’ve been hand-crafting unique holiday experiences across Europe and beyond for more than 30 years, specialising in off-the-beaten-track locations.

Headwater has a great choice of walking holidays, offering options throughout Europe, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean too. From woodland rambles along leafy lanes to mountain, gorge and ridge hikes, all our walking holidays offer interest-packed insights into some of the most beautiful and unspoilt corners. After strolling through stunning scenery during the day, you’ll experience authentic local cuisine and fabulous hotels at night. Sound tempting? We might just have your perfect walking holidays in the Headwater collection.

Self-guided walking holidays

From an idyllic riverside stroll through the Loire, to a breath-taking ridge walk in the Swiss Alps, our self-guided walking holidays offer you maximum flexibility. Travel at your own pace, stop off when and where you like and fully embrace the sights and sounds of your surroundings. Headwater provide detailed route notes and comprehensive maps, so all you need worry about is where to stop for your next leisurely lunch.

Travelling alone?

Headwater guided walking holidays are perfect. You’ll join a small group (typically 4-16 people), led by a Headwater guide or local partner who’s passionate about their region and committed to sharing their local knowledge with you. Read more about their Singles Holidays.
