Where to enjoy an autumn walking holiday in November


ow that a few more destinations have been added to the travel corridor list, there’s more scope in November to get your walking boots on and clear the cobwebs.

Whether you’re staying in the UK or heading somewhere a bit warmer, here are a few places for a mellow autumn walking holiday.

La Gomera

Inntravel has a seven-night self-guided Hidden Gem of the Canaries walking holiday in La Gomera from £845pp for departures throughout November. The price includes transfers, B&B accommodation, three dinners and two picnics, but not flights.

Lake District

Explore the hugely varied landscapes of the western Lake District on foot with Ramblers Walking Holidays, which offers breaks from three to seven nights. 

Peak District

Base yourself near the lovely market town of Bakewell and you’ll have some gorgeous walks in the Peak District within reach. And the beauty of Dovedale is an easy drive away if you book a stay at Sunnylea Cottage. 

This two-bedroom limestone cottage in the White Peak village of Great Longstone features a double and a single bedroom, as well as a fireplace and attractive garden. Booked through Rural Retreats, it costs £485 for four nights in November, and includes a welcome hamper.



It’s available for short and longer breaks through Classic Cottages – four nights in November cost from £330.


Sweden’s own Lake District – about a 90-minute drive from Gothenburg – is ablaze with autumn colour, which you can enjoy in the Store Mosse National Park and its 40km of hiking trails. The birdlife here is astonishing, and you can admire it even more closely from the various observation towers. 

Sunvil has a week’s holiday at Hestraviken hotel, surrounded by pine forests on the banks of the River Nissan, where you can also rent bikes, boats and canoes for free. Seven nights’ B&B cost from £1,009pp, including flights and car hire, departing 12 November.

New Forest

If you’re at a loose end over a weekend and fancy some company while exploring the heart of the New Forest, join one of the walking weekends offered by Friendship Travel. You’ll be based in the Beaulieu Hotel, a cosy former coaching inn that’s a short walk from Beaulieu Road railway station. A guide will take you on walks through the ancient woods of the New Forest, stopping at a country pub, before dinner back at the hotel. 


Two nights over 13-14 November, including breakfast and dinner with wine, costs £355, and there’s no single supplement.
