We just completed a 6 day self guided walk in the Pyrenees on the Cathar Castle trail. It was a great experience. Good accomodation, food and scenery. Everything was really well organised bar a couple of very minor hiccups involving taxis but nothing major. We would highly recommend this trip

Had an amazing time on the Full Spanish Camino! Utracks organised all the luggage transfers and accommodation. Did a combination of self-guided hiking and cycling, which was the best way to go. Bike hire came with panniers, and the self-guided maps and guides provided were easy to follow. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Have just had an incredible week cycling along the Danube River through Germany, Austria and Bratislava on a UTracks Bike & Barge trip with my partner. We did a self-guided trip with electric bikes so we could set our own pace each day, stopping for long lunches in the sunshine, wine tastings, coffee in gorgeous ancient villages and side trips to castles, imperial palaces and monasteries, before returning to our boat each afternoon in time for drinks on the sundeck. I loved waking up on our boat in a new destination each day ready to explore the European countryside. Cannot wait for my next UTracks adventure.

I was nervous to undertake my first self guided walk, but wanted the challenge of a new adventure. UTracks booked the accomodation, luggage transfers and provided our route notes and maps. Everything ran perfectly. I'm already dreaming of what to do next! Thank you for a truely memorable holiday UTracks, can't wait to travel with you again!

My wife and I really enjoyed our first time self guiding with UTracks, walking in the Sierra de Grazalema National Park. The scenery, local hospitality, accommodations and meals were all fantastic! My wife planned the trip for us and is the keen walker but now I think I'll be hooked. I'm ready to plan my next adventure. Thanks UTracks!

Multi-day walking and cycling tours with UTracks cover a variety of durations, destinations, and physical levels. Small group tours are lead by regional experts and explore classic sites as well as beyond the tourist areas.

Self guided trips are carefully crafted and supported by comprehensive maps and route notes. Luggage transfers mean you don’t have to worry about lugging an enormous suitcase with you along the route, and can enjoy the walk with only a light pack.

If you are an active traveler who enjoys long multi-day hikes, walks, treks, and cycling journeys, the expertise of UTracks can help bring your trip to the next level.
