Give the Perfect Gift – A Ryder-Walker Trek

The Gift of Travel

2022 is ramping up to be the year of travel with most of us envisioning an epic vacation abroad. What better way to celebrate the new year and revitalize spirits than with a life-changing Ryder-Walker trek!

Ryder-Walker has a variety of tried-and-true exciting and inspirational hiking itineraries. Our Cornwall England’s Cornish Coastal Trek boasts over 400 miles of dramatic cliff-edged coastline and explores the breathtaking coastal path while visiting castles, hidden coves, gardens and parks. The wild Southern Carpathian Alps of Romania, visits several national parks and Transylvanian villages along with a stop at Dracula’s, Bran Castle. Our new mini treks add a short hiking adventure to any business trip or romantic getaway and are easily accessible from many major international airports.

With treks offered all over the world, there truly is a hike for everyone. Whether it’s exploring the sunny Italian coast, the heights of the Alps, or even more exotic destinations such as Peru and Patagonia, all of Ryder-Walker’s soulfully designed and individually tailored trips offer the opportunity to give a truly memorable experience to a lucky someone in a year where everyone is impassioned to get out and enjoy new experiences off the beaten path.

An adventure trek with Ryder-Walker is an extraordinary experience certain to leave a lasting impression on your friends or loved ones. Our trips are all culturally engaging and open up new experiences to meet people from all walks of life. From alpine shepherds to Buddhist monks, experience the local lore, cuisine, wines and spirits all while enjoying the most beautiful frontiers on earth. At the end of your hiking day relax in world-class hotels, quaint mountain inns and high alpine huts and feast on traditional dishes using local provisions and refreshments.

With the holiday season and new year upon us, we look forward to a sense of renewed hope and excitement. For those who love to globetrot, now is the perfect time to plan your next hiking venture. Vacation gifts are a particularly unique option to consider because they offer such diverse experiences, such as riding in the famous glacier express over the Bernina Massif in Switzerland, spending a romantic night in a secluded mountain hotel, swimming in the captivating Mediterranean Sea, or summiting your first 9,000-foot peak!

Our hiking trips are particularly unique because they quench the wanderlust we all have to shed normal routines and embrace a week or more of walking in fresh air with dirt and rocks under our feet, listening to birds sing and animal chatter, streams running and wind rustling the trees. Rather than simply traveling through a country you get the experience of hiking from village to village gaining an appreciation for the region’s nature and culture.

Now’s the time to give the most memorable gift to your special someone –adventure, culture, fun and travel.
