9th January 2017



Walking the world, creating memories that last a lifetime

Walking delivers a unique feeling of freedom and adventure. Whether you’re ambling through countryside with nothing but the sound of birdsong above and the gentle crunch of hiking boots underfoot, or trekking to breath-stealing altitudes to cast your eyes on stunning peak and lake panoramas, nothing matters but the journey ahead.

At Ramblers Walking Holidays, we understand the joy of a path less trodden, and we can take you and your feet on some truly memorable journeys both in the UK and around the world. From ‘That time we explored the Canadian Rockies’ to ‘The day we strolled the Riviera coastline of Italy’s Cinque Terra’ our intimate, expertly led, group walking adventures will become unforgettable stories you will share for years to come.

Blea Tarn

Our heritage says it all, celebrating our 70th anniversary this year, our passion to discover the best paths, trails and walkways both home and abroad has delivered as a loyal following of hiking friends. Not only do we offer an extensive repertoire of destinations you just must ramble, but our continued commitment to innovation means there are always some new countries and landscapes to ethically tread.

Prize one:

Win a walking holiday for two in the Lake District worth over £500

The winner will have the opportunity to choose any holiday from a varied selection of Ramblers Walking Holidays in the Lake District holidays for two people for up to four nights (winner can add on extra days at his / her own cost)

Holidays are available to suit all walking levels and you will stay at Hassness Country House beautifully located in its own extensive grounds on Lake Buttermere


You’ll find sheep grazing and red squirrels scurrying around just outside the door. This is one of the remotest parts of the Lake District offering some of Britain’s best views and is the perfect starting point for some truly remarkable days in the hills. Full board accommodation includes cooked breakfast each day, packed lunches on walking days, freshly baked cakes in the afternoon and home cooked locally sourced three course dinners (except Tuesdays). All holidays include a leader to show you the very best of this beautiful part of the UK. Take a look for yourself.


Prize is non transferable and subject to availability. There is no cash equivalent. Winner and companion will share a twin room. They need to meet the fitness level of the walking holiday. Prize doesn’t include transport. By entering the competition you agree to receiving news and offers from Ramblers Walking Holidays, they will not pass on your details to a third party.
