Ramble Worldwide

Explore the world on foot with Ramble Worldwide

Founded back in 1946, Ramble Worldwide specialises in walking holidays for those who love exploring the world on foot. We take enormous pride in guiding our guests across the globe and bring over 75 years of experience and expertise to every step of your journey.

From the dramatic western fells in the Lake District (home to our Hassness Country House) and sparkling azure coastlines on remote Greek islands to the ancient temples in Asia and untamed wildernesses of Africa teeming with wildlife, our walking holidays promise unforgettable adventures in some of the world’s most breath-taking destinations.


Formerly known as Ramblers Walking Holidays and Adagio, in November 2023 we united these two trusted brands under one fresh identity – Ramble Worldwide. Along with our new name, we’ve expanded our holiday range to offer four carefully curated Collections, each catering to different preferences and walking styles.

Our Classic Collection is for those looking to explore iconic footpaths, pilgrimage routes or off-the-beaten-path tracks. Ideal for active and adventurous walkers, the journey is at the heart of these small group guided experiences, and you can expect breath-taking landscapes to accompany you all the way.

Our Discover Collection really delves into the inspiring destinations we visit, allowing you to explore, learn and connect more deeply than you would on your own. Small friendly groups come together on these trips which showcase cuisine, wine, wildlife, nature, history and much more. Plus, they often feature local experts whose knowledge and passion bring the places we visit to life.

If you’re seeking shorter walks and a more leisurely pace of discovery, then our Adagio Collection is the way to go. It blends guided walking and sightseeing opportunities. With these holidays, we’ve truly perfected the art of slowing down and appreciating the natural beauty and culture of each amazing destination.

And if you prefer independent exploration, try our Self-Guided Collection. You can go at your own pace with your route carefully planned, your accommodation booked and your luggage waiting at your next destination. Simply put, we take care of everything so you can enjoy a stress-free experience and focus all your attention on the awe-inspiring views.


At Ramble Worldwide, we boast over 300 itineraries across six continents, all crafted by experts who intimately know the terrain. In fact, our holidays wouldn’t be what they are without our more than 250 highly knowledgeable leaders – each with their own individual style, talents and favourite destinations. We’ve selected and trained them with care, so they’ll not only navigate the route but provide you with fascinating insights along the way.

On each itinerary, you’ll find a walking grade to give you a clear idea about the ascent, descent and walking time you can expect. We’ve got four basic categories – Gentle, Leisurely, Moderate and Challenging – to help you easily select what’s best for you. To allow even more choice and flexibility, some of our trips feature two grades of walking and two leaders, or our own carefully created ‘flexi-walking’ routes.

Operating with a wholly charitable ethos, we are committed to making a positive impact and support responsible initiatives both at home and abroad. Our surplus profit goes to our Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust, where it’s channelled into outdoor charities, conservation projects and walking initiatives throughout the UK. We also support the local communities we visit around the world. In this way, every step you take on your holiday gives back.

What’s more, our tours offer great value for money. Unless otherwise stated, our pricing includes accommodation, meals (typically half board and when possible dinners are taken at local restaurants), local transport, guided walks and at least one of our experienced leaders. Return air or train travel and transfers are also included on most of our trips outside the UK.

With our special promotion for National Association of Retired Police Officers members, you can take advantage of a 5% discount on all our walking holidays. Simply book by 31 August 2024 and quote the code ‘NARPO24’ by phone or online in the ‘Special Instructions’ box.

Visit to plan an unforgettable journey with us! We can’t wait to show you why we so firmly believe that the world is more beautiful when explored on foot.
