If you’re single or a couple and like the sound of joining others for a group walking holiday in Rutland, then you’ve come to the right place. Equally, if you run or are part of a walking club and are looking for a new challenge for your members, then Rutland Trails can help.
We have a number of scheduled group walks planned throughout the year that may suit your diary. Here’s a flavour of the itinerary for the week. We do change it depending upon the season but this will help to give you a taste of what you can expect. Ideally, our group walks will accommodate between six and twelve people.
Alternatively, if you are a walking club, you can choose from one of our set walks or you can sit down with our founder and guide, Ian, who will help to map out your own route to suit your walking party. Walking club bookings can accommodate up to sixteen people.
Our aim will always be to ensure we get as many, if not all of you, into the same accommodation throughout your walking holiday. We handpick hotels, bed & breakfast and guest houses that work for group bookings.
We also hand select the best places to stay, not only in terms of comfort, cleanliness and value for money, but also to give you a real taste of Rutland.
For this reason, we steer clear of the chains where possible and choose independent establishments where there is emphasis on keeping as much ‘local’ as possible. It is our intention to support the local economy as much as we can – also giving you a true flavour of how special Rutland is.
While you enjoy setting off on your next day’s walk with the rest of the group, we will organise for everyone’s luggage to be transferred safely to your next destination. Often a logistical headache for group bookings, we have this covered for you.
To ensure you experience as much of beautiful Rutland during your stay, you can include gap days and choose entirely how you spend this time.
These can be ‘free’ days (without the use of our guide). However, we can book all your activities in advance, to ensure your holiday is fully planned before you arrive. We have some excellent friends and partners across the county and we can secure best prices on entrance fees and tickets for many activities and places of interest.
