Ramblers Walking Holidays has launched 14 new holidays in its Winter & Long Haul 2020-2021 brochure.

The programme offers more than 90 walking tour itineraries across 60 countries.

One of the new highlights is the Four Faces of Ethiopia In Comfort tour in 2021, offering the chance to walk in the Simien Mountains and staying at Africa’s highest hotel, the Simien Lodge.

The escorted tour departs costs from £2,820 including international and internal flights, transfers and nine nights of full-board accommodation.

Also in Africa in 2021 is the South Africa: Walks Along the Garden Route tour, featuring the chance to spot wildlife in Addo National Park and Tsitsikamma National Park, and sample wine along the Stellenbosch Wine Trail.

The 15-night tour costs from £3,350 including flights, transfers, most meals, safari game drives, entrance fees, local guide and all local transport.

Elsewhere the French Quebec and New England tour visits Acadia National Park, the Appalachian Trail and Montreal, in 2020 and 2021.

The 12-night holiday costs from £3,950 including return flights, transfers, accommodation with most meals and all local transport costs.

Other highlights include a 10-night nature walking tour in Dominica, which follows some of the best sections of the only long-distance walking trail in the Caribbean: the Waitukubuli National Trail.

Closer to home, there are two new week-long snowshoe tours in Europe early next year – Font Romeu in the French Pyrenees and Snowshoeing in Arctic Finland.
The Font Romeu In The French Pyrenees trip starts from £1,340 while the Finland tour costs from £1,999.

Both include flights and half-board accommodation

Kevin O’Regan, managing director, said: “In our new winter edition brochure, there are some incredible long-haul adventures, featuring some of the world’s most spectacular walks, whilst closer to home, we have included some of our favourite European holidays, which are easier to reach but equally memorable.”
