Our Walking Holiday Prices

Two walkers enjoying The Dartmoor Way ExmoorHow our pricing works

We create individual walking holidays to suit you, so just as there are no 'standard' walks at Encounter Walking so there are no 'standard' price lists. Fixed prices only mean you are pushed into a 'fixed' holiday and we don't do those!

Instead, if you request a quote from us you will know exactly what your individual walk will cost BEFORE you book and you will also be confident that everything you want is included in the quoted price.


Guideline Rates - Typical Rates for main routes in Season (May to September)

From £110 per person per day based on 2 walkers sharing a double or twin bed ensuite room with luggage transfers

From £150 per person per day based on a single walker with sole occupancy rooms and luggage transfers

Groups of 4 or more enjoy reduced rates as you can share the luggage and admin costs  More Details on our group walking page

Our prices include -

  • - Your choices of good quality en-suite B&B, Inn and small hotel accommodation with full breakfast together with upgrade options where available
  • - Detailed walking route planning and ongoing support from a specialist walking advisor from your enquiry through to the end of the walk
  • - A full booking administration and holiday management service including information on travel to and from your walking routes
  • - Secure and reliable daily luggage transfers between accommodations
  • - The best available maps & guidebooks along with your own personal detailed route notes & itinerary posted to you whether you are based in the UK or overseas

Please see below for six factors which affect your quoted price - Snowdonia

1 - The time of year you are walking -  The low season (outside of May to September) is generally cheaper than the peak months.

2 - How early you book. Cheaper accommodation tends to book out first so to get the best prices and choice of accommodation we recommend you book as early as you can. Bookings open for the season the previous summer.

3 - Which routes and areas you choose - Cornwall, South Devon and Dorset are the more expensive regions while Wales, Somerset, North Devon and Dartmoor tend to offer better prices. We also often run seasonal special offers on certain routes so ask if these would be of interest.

Durdle Door4 - Type of accommodation  -  You can choose to upgrade to luxury hotels or downgrade to basic B&B's and we will try to match your walk to your budget. Quotes will show standard options and the costs for any upgrades so you can pick and choose to suit your plans.

5 - The number of walkers - rates are generally based on 2 walkers -  the more walkers the cheaper prices get as we split the costs of providing the walk between the group.

6 - Luggage Transfers - our quotes include two prices - with and without luggage transfers so if you want to keep the costs down you can choose to carry your own luggage to avoid those charges.

If you want to try to get the lowest prices let us know your budget - we can advise honestly and openly what is possible - we don't want to see anyone unable to walk the routes due to costs.

To request a quote costs nothing and there is no commitment to book - so do try us! We usually have quotes emailed back to you within a few days and these documents are very detailed with accommodation choices, website links to the accommodations, route descriptions, daily walking grade and mileage, travel info to the trail and of course a guaranteed price to consider.  All for the specific walk YOU want.
