The expert knowledge
There are many factors that go in to creating the perfect hike, and nobody knows this better than the experts at HF Holidays. Wherever it is you’re planning to visit, you can rest easy in the knowledge that a specially selected volunteer leader will be close at hand to ensure you get the most out of your time away. Chosen for their in-depth local knowledge, walking experience, passion and personality, volunteer experts will stop at nothing to make sure your trip is an enjoyable and memorable one.
And it’s not just their local knowledge that sets HF holidays apart from other operators, it’s their discretion too. Whether you’re a complete novice, keen to soak up as much advice as possible, or a seasoned walker who needs no guidance or encouragement to make the best of your surroundings you’ll be catered for. No matter your requirements HF holidays guided and self-guided trips take care of as much (or as little) of the planning and navigation as you like.
Location, location, location!
Arguably the most important factor in creating the perfect hike, HF Holidays has the pick of the bunch when it comes to extraordinary locations for a walking escape. In the UK alone, hikers can enjoy a total of 17 country houses exclusively owned and operated by HF Holidays in places such as the Lake District, Yorkshire and the Brecon Beacons (to name just a few).
Set within Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, these impressive country residences (once home to the historic great and good) are fit for royalty and the perfect base from which to begin your hiking holiday. Plus, visitors to these properties can enjoy the use of several features specifically for walkers, including dedicated boot- and coat-drying rooms.
For those looking to venture a little further, there’re plenty of choices too. With over 60 European and worldwide destinations to choose from, there really is something for everyone. Discover thought-provoking cultural landmarks, unspoiled landscapes and world-famous trails, all while getting an impressive number of steps under your belt.
For every ability
While many walking holiday operators grade their trips according to walking ability, HF holidays is unique in offering a choice of different grades at all of their destinations. Each walking day of your break includes a selection of three hikes to ensure the exceptional views and memorable locations are accessible to every guest. Choose based on your walking style; guided or self-guided, island hopping, challenge walks or laid-back sightseeing; with HF Holidays you can enjoy as much (or as little) activity as you like.
After a long day’s ambling, there’s no better way to wrap up your adventure than with an excellent meal to fill your (hiking) boots. And with full board on all HF Holidays’ UK excursions, you can enjoy hearty menus filled with local produce that reflects the seasons. Additionally, most special diets including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free are catered for with high-quality meals and regional dishes, all designed specifically to sate your post-walk appetite.
Finally, planning the perfect hike should always include booking safe in the knowledge that, if plans change, your booking can too. HF Holidays go above and beyond to give you peace of mind when preparing for a holiday. Fully protected: all their breaks benefit from ATOL or ABTOT bonding. And if your holiday is cancelled you can transfer it for free or request a refund.
