What you'll gain

Make new friends, walk in amazing places and know that you’re helping people – just three of the great reasons that people are motivated to volunteer.

  • The flexibility to choose to lead different holiday durations, from a 3-Night short break to a 14-Night Trail

By getting involved you get

  • To choose where, when and how often you lead
  • To learn new skills
  • To keep fit and active
  • To make new friends with similar interests
