Our holidays are designed with walkers in mind and you can rely on Inghams to offer the best walking destinations in Europe.
Walking with Inghams
Why go on a walking holiday with Inghams? Our experienced in-resort reps have an incredible knowledge of, and are passionate about their resorts. That’s why in many of our destinations our reps, and occasionally experienced guides, provide exclusive, guided Wanderwalks to introduce you to the most popular trails, the local history, geography, and flora and fauna.
Inghams Wanderwalks are bookable locally, and we offer a variety of walks which range in duration and difficulty to make sure there is a walk that is suitable for you. Our guests regularly tell us how enjoyable our Inghams Wanderwalks are.
