Book A Holiday or Make Your Own Arrangements
If you are apprehensive about making all of your own travel arrangements, yet you want to enjoy the freedom that a trekking holiday affords, you may want to book your trekking tour or camping holiday through a travel agency. There are many agencies that specialize in trekking tours, ranging from simple walking holidays to rigorous mountain treks. Usually, when booking through an agency it is your responsibility to make your way to a specific location where you meet up with your group and begin your trek. Many people, especially those who are seasoned travelers, prefer to make their own arrangements. Oftentimes they will simply team up with one or two other people and travel, at their leisure, to different locations they want to see.
The advantages of making your own arrangements are that you can often trim the cost of your holiday quite a bit and you are able to travel where and when you like. It is extremely easy to switch your itinerary around if you decide as you are not locked into any dates or timeframe. You can also choose your own mode of transportation. With an arranged trek, you will need to follow the itinerary, however you will benefit from having an experienced guide traveling with you which is helpful particularly when you do not speak the local language.
Popular Trekking Holidays
There are many popular trekking holidays, including trekking holidays in Europe, or trekking to specific famous locations around the world such as the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek, crossing the Lycian Way or taking the Inca Trail Trek. Nepal trekking holidays offer you the opportunity to visit some of the most stunning mountainous regions in the world, with the Everest Base Camp trek only one of many available.
Trekking across Europe is an all-time favorite, especially for singles. Trekking holidays for singles through Europe will take you through mountainous regions or along pristine coastlines depending on which direction you want to take. Some of the more popular European treks include trekking through the Alps, walking the Turquoise Coast in Turkey, or visiting ruins along the Amalfi Coast.
Trekking Holidays With a Difference
There are quite a few different options, aside from walking trekking holidays. You can just as easily take a cycling tour which will enable you to cover more distance quickly, yet still enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. For something different, you may want to check out some different horse trekking holidays available. In Europe, you can ride horses around the Andalucian Coast, through rural Portugal, Ireland or Wales. There are also some fantastic treks available in Argentina, where you can stay on an Argentinean ranch and explore the countryside on pony. You can even take pony trekking holidays where you follow elephant trails through game reserves in Botswana. A rather spectacular trip, via horseback, is the Mongolian horse trekking holiday.
