Secret Hills Walking Holidays was formed in 2002 and we are based in the Shropshire Hills. Our principal is Alan Garner, who has a wealth of knowledge on walking in many areas of the world. He has built up a strong guiding team, picked initially for their love and knowledge of the area they live in and also for their ability to relate with all members of a walking party.
From our earliest days we have specialised in guided walking holidays for singles and solos. There are many companies who say they organise singles walking holidays, but we actually only have solos on our holidays. So like minded people looking to join a small group- and to meet new friends – “we meet as strangers and depart as friends”
We aim to pass on our love of where we walk and to ensure you get the best holiday we can provide. We value each individual and each group and we take pleasure in knowing that you have chosen us for your walking holiday. Our reward is your satisfaction with our overall service. We call it ‘the experience’ – combining the walking with all the other things that make up a good holiday including accommodation, friendly service and attention to individual needs as well as a stress-free, social experience.
Our company has grown from small beginnings to a world-wide operation. Over the years, we have constantly researched new areas in the UK, Europe and further afield, thereby ensuring that we continue to offer new, exciting holiday options for our clients.
All our holidays are designed to have that essential flexibility built in, and concentrating on making sure everyone is individually catered for. You matter to us as individuals, though you may be walking with us in a group, there will be different needs for everyone. Our leaders are trained to provide the holiday just for you, embracing that personal touch that may be lacking in bigger businesses.
