Walking Holiday Destinations

Experience the excitement of an Inghams holiday and discover the best destinations in Europe this summer and beyond.

Meet Walter Ingham The man with a passion for the great outdoors

Credited as the man who took Britain skiing, it didn’t take Walter Ingham long to realise his passion for the mountains went beyond skiing. In fact Walter’s passion was for all that the fresh air, stunning views and peaceful scenery had to offer when he was out in the mountains.

A few years after creating the Inghams company, Walter expanded from offering not only skiing holidays, but walking holidays too. Walter offered these throughout the summer months and today, Inghams carries on his enjoyment of walking by making sure you have the opportunity to walk to the best view points across Europe too.


The great outdoors - it's not just our playground, it's our inspiration. For over 85 years our purpose has always been simple, to help you get out there and join us, to explore and soak up your surroundings - one step at a time.

Along the way, we've learnt a lot too, and we're bursting with excitement to share our stories with you. So pack your boots and your love for the great outdoors - we'll handle the rest.
