Over 40 Years of Experience

Country Walkers began with a simple idea: explore the world actively, passionately, and with a commitment to authentically engaging with local cultures. With this guiding principle, we launched the company in 1979 from an old barn in Vermont. Although we were small (and our office space rustic), our love for the beauty of the surrounding Green Mountains became contagious. Soon we expanded from local to international destinations, introducing travelers to new landscapes and cultures around the world on foot.


Today, Country Walkers is recognized as one of the leading providers of walking adventures worldwide, having garnered countless awards including AFAR’s Traveler’s Choice Awards and Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” Awards.

New Endeavours

Three Walking and Hiking Travel Styles


Flex-Guided: A guided vacation with some independent exploration. Perfect for those who like the camaraderie of a group, the comfort of having all the important details planned, and want opportunities to get away from the group for a few afternoons or evenings.


Fully-Guided: An exclusive, curated adventure with like-minded travelers. Perfect for those who like having everything thoughtfully planned, enjoy fascinating insights from knowledgeable guides, and prefer never having to take out their wallet.


Self-Guided: Private travel with freedom and peace of mind. Perfect for those who want the freedom to explore at their own pace, enjoy navigating for themselves (occasionally getting a bit lost!) & prefer having control over their trip.
