Ramblers Walking Holidays For Every Month

Whether you want to experience the magic of faraway places or enjoy encounters closer to home, Ramblers Walking Holidays have picked some of the world’s best places to travel to throughout the year.

January

The perfect month for enjoying snowshoeing in Austria or walking amongst fairy-tale Bavarian castles in the German Alps. But if you’re looking for warmth rather than snow, more tropical adventures can be found in Trinidad and Tobago or Costa Rica when the sun shines and places of interest are teeming with birds, butterflies and other brilliantly coloured creatures. 

February

This is one of the best times of year to head across the northern hemisphere, where the first signs of spring are starting to make an appearance. Short haul, the coastline, fishing villages and countryside of Tavira on the Eastern Algarve, are beginning to burst into life after a sleepy winter. Sri Lanka is a great destination all year round but February is one of the driest months which make it perfect for exploring outdoors. Also, the wildlife is abundant in the National Parks and you may even get to spot a leopard or sloth bears.

March

The warm sunny days and dramatic volcanic landscapes of the Canary Islands are best experienced in early spring. With ancient lava fields, spectacular sandy beaches and sleepy fishing villages, these islands crammed full of natural riches and wildlife, have it all. Go off the beaten track in Cuba to seek out the unexpected, walk amidst mountains and coffee, tobacco and pineapple plantations and fully immerse yourself in the magic of a colonial past.

April

With the sea as your constant companion, roam through carpets of vibrant wild flowers and discover ancient sites keeping silent watch over the surrounding landscape. April is the perfect time to see one of the best spring flower displays in the world in the Greek Peloponnese.

May

The French Rivera’s sparkling sun-blessed days are perfect for exploring the stunning gardens of the Cote d’Azur, meandering through the narrow winding streets of Nice’s Old Town and relaxing beside the beautiful azure sea.

June

Visit the Serengeti in June and you’ll see the largest migration of mammals anywhere on earth. In the desert you can witness wildebeest, antelope and zebra on mass as they are stalked by lions and cheetahs. 

July

For another force of nature, head to the top of the world for a Nordic nirvana in Iceland. Walk through rocky lava fields, past active volcanoes and rushing rivers. Feel the spray from powerful waterfalls and walk through surprisingly verdant mountain highlands. Relax in a hot spring or delight in bubbling mud pools and unpredictable geysers. 

August

Great time to explore North America and discover the magnificence of Alaska. The days are long and full of nature, excellent for discovering the wilderness of America’s largest state. Untouched national parks, electric blue glaciers, stunning fjords and endless wildlife sightings – whales, black and grizzly bears, porpoise and all manner of birds.  

September

Cooler temperatures in the Mediterranean make it just right for hiking and sightseeing. Ideal places to visit at this time are Majorca, Rome and the Sorrento Peninsula.

October

In Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands you’ll get to see an abundance of wildlife such as sea turtles, land iguanas and a plentiful array of birdlife. 

November

For the ultimate winter escape, venture to New York and spend Thanksgiving exploring glittering Times Square and shopping on glamorous Fifth Avenue. Add in Downtown, Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, the art deco Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, spectacular bridges, museums, theatres and concert halls and some classic New York cuisine and you’ll certainly have an action packed and exciting week!

December

Time to enjoy world heritage at home. Visit Hadrian’s Wall, the Giant’s Causeway and walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs or enjoy a tranquil festive break amongst the famous peaks and fells of the UNESCO world Heritage Site in the Lake District. Whether you explore Lakeland ridges, pretty villages nestled deep in the countryside, remote islands or areas of outstanding natural beauty, you will discover a whole new world at home in the UK.
