Walkabout Walking Holidays is a subsidiary of Mountain Ventures Ltd The company has over 40 years experience of organising walking holidays and other mountain activities These include training professional mountain leaders and enabling clients to make ascents of peaks such as Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and the Eiger.
How is the group organised, managed and led?
Each holiday is managed and co-ordinated usually by one of our leaders Informal advice and guidance is readily available on any issues related to your walking holiday before, during and after the walk
We hold daily meetings when the groups are briefed about the day's walks We discuss what to take, the route, pace, time, distance, the weather and how people are feeling, the composition of the group This regular process of briefing and discussion helps us decide which walks will be most suitable on any particular day
We suggest a programme of evening and, if required, rest day (or half day) activities to meet your interests Our aim is to ensure you have the opportunity to experience as much as possible of the food and drink, music and culture characteristic of your chosen venue
