About Us | Secret Hills Walking

Secret Hills Guided Walking Holidays

Celebrating sixteen years of helping walkers enjoy Britain's glorious countryside and superb European destinations

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.

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.

An Individual Experience

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.

What Others Said...

Barbara was so welcoming and friendly, I was so so nervous, and had nearly changed my mind and driven 4 hours home. She was great. Talking to other people who have been on other walking hols. This one stands out as being better as there are always 2 guides, one at the front and one at the back. I would hate it if it was just a leader at the front. I loved being able to split into 2 groups and enjoyed the challenging walks particularly. I would have hated really easy walks without a challenge. Having so many people was great. Others have been on hols with 6 people, I liked it being 20. I loved when Ian stopped and pointed things out, told us info about the area, interesting facts and stories. I like that the guide does more than telling us which was to go. I loved when the guide Tristan got his map out when we stopped for a cup of tea at the end. I had been dieing to see a map all week end and see the route, with the contours etc.
