Walking retreats

Be in the great outdoors on a healthy retreat that features trekking or hiking alongside other activities. The retreats we have reviewed are set in safe and scenic places where walking trails are often right from your door, whether you’re staying at a spa in the foothills of the Himalayas in India or enjoying a hill walking and yoga retreat in Italy. Some of the healthy holidays reviewed here make walking very much a part of the programme, while others offer the option of privately guided or solo strolls. Happy ambling.
