UK Walking Holidays

As a responsible and caring business, despite the effect on our core walking holiday business, we have decided to follow the latest UK governments advice about social gatherings and social distancing.

We will therefore postpone all our walking holidays commencing 23/03/20, until at the earliest May 30 2020. We will review this decision at regular intervals as we understand and respond to governments latest information and advice and will change to an active walking holiday business as soon as we are able. We will publish regular updates on this website, on our facebook page and through regular newsletters to our suscribed clients.

We are contacting all of our clients who have reserved a holiday to offer both alternative later dated holidays and financial credits to set against those holidays.

We are extremely sorry that we have to take such an action - but in light of the scientific and health advice given to the Government, we do not wish to be out of step.

Travel to Europe with us

We are currently examining all Secret Hills Walking holidays that depart after 1 April. We will constantly monitor current UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice, and government advice from the countries we visit.

We will also take advice for our supplying hotels/transport companies and tour leaders in each country.

We believe that it is likely that some forthcoming holidays will be suspended.

In this event, my colleagues at New Experience Holidays will contact you and discuss alternative holiday plans.

See New Experience Holidays Booking Conditions for more information 

Please ensure that you obtain the travel insurance appropriate for your destination, itinerary and nature of your holiday. It is a good idea to check your travel insurance policy for the scope of cover.

A personal message from our founder Alan Garner

In taking the steps that we believe are necessary in this terrible crisis, we assure all our clients and all our walking friends that we will continue to develop the business during our enforced downtime.

After 18 years of hard work by many team members past and present, I have no intention of "throwing in the towel" - we will, in the Secret Hills community, be here when the virus subsides- ready to continue to guide you round our magnificent countryside. So I hope you will continue to support us and when the light arrives at the end of this long tunnel - get those boots on again with us. See you then

Alan - and the whole Secret Hills Walking community

What Others Said...

Michael Dawes August 2014 Crickhowell and the Black Mountains A wonderful week away exploring the hills of south Wales.  Thank you!​  I appreciated your  ability to be able to facilitate and organise the activities; the choice of accommodation and to be able to adapt to varying levels of ability within the walking group. Wonderful hotel – the location was ideal; the hotel staff were wonderful, the food was fantastic (even if there was perhaps a little too much sometimes), and everything was done to help facilitate our holiday there.
