Why choose a walking vacation?

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet..."

Not only does walking have a huge benefit on your body and mind, it is also a fantastic way to discover and explore a new destination.

So if you are thinking about booking a walking vacation with Compass Holidays, here's our top three reasons why you should definitely give it a go:

Slow and meaningful travel

A walking tour with Compass Holidays takes on the concept of Slow Travel. Slow Travel is a more sustainable and meaningful way of seeing the world. It's more about enjoying local experiences and absorbing the atmosphere and culture around you. Walking holidays are a great example of Slow Travel and because you use your own two feet during the tour (most of the time) it's gentle on our environment.

It's good for your body and mind

We are all aware that walking is good for our body helping to keep fitness and activity levels high but it is actually also really good for our mind too. Whilst on a walking holiday with Compass Holidays, you can focus on your mind and keep negative thoughts at bay.

New perspectives and sense of achievement

A walking tour can provide you with a new perspective on a particular region of a country and can give you an insight into exactly what local life is like. What's more is that walking up to 20 miles per day for over a week really is a huge achievement.
