Self-guided walking holidays with Ben Roughton from Contours Walking Holidays

Exploring the benefits of a self-guided walking holiday


From the Coast to Coast to the West Highland Way, Contours Walking Holidays offer a range of self-guided walking holidays in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Many of Contours' holidays use Cicerone guidebooks, and the support provided by Contours makes their holidays perfect for both first-time and experienced long-distance hikers who want to avoid organising the logistics of a trip. In this episode, we speak to Ben Roughton from Contours about the all benefits of using a self-guided holiday company, from booking accommodation and luggage transfers to the constant availability of support and expert advice while on the trail. This episode focused mainly on walking holidays (including dog friendly walking holidays), but Contours also organise cycling and trail running holidays.
