Walking Holiday Arrangement Companies on the South West Coast Path

We estimate that there are approximately 10,000 organised walking holidays on the South West Coast Path each year. If you don't organise your trekking holiday yourself, you can arrange for a walking holiday company to do it for you.

Why use a Walking Holiday Arrangement Company?

If you want to book a walking holiday on the South West Coast Path, of course you can do it yourself by using our accommodation section and then booking your luggage transfer with us once your accommodation is booked. But it is not always as easy as that! There are lots of other considerations such as each daily distance and level of difficulty versus your own fitness and requirements. The type and quality of accommodation / facilities you need on the South West Coast Path are not always easy to come by and you will need the right guide book and mapping.

Although all of this can be done via our website, we do advise that sometimes it is best to employ one of the walking holiday arrangement companies below to do it for you. This list includes only those that specialise on the South West Coast Path.
