Self Guided Tour Schedule

Embrace Your Freedom

Ryder Walker’s self-guided hiking tours are perfect for travelers that prefer to venture on their own and without the services of a guide. In order to provide an independent hiking experience that works smoothly, we provide a comprehensive package of materials, including four-color topographical hiking maps with outlined routes, written hike descriptions, customized travel itineraries, prepaid accommodations, and all of the necessary arrangements to make your independent hiking tour a success.

We also offer many of our standard guided tours as independent options, so just find a tour that you like, tell us the date that you’d like to begin, and we’ll do the rest. Please take a moment to peruse a few of our best-selling suggestions below.

Hear It From Our Guests

“In a word, everything went smoothly. The trails were great, and the views were fantastic. The hotels were all wonderful, and the meals were exceptional. All the baggage transfers went off without a hitch. Your trail descriptions and maps were great – we had no trouble finding trailheads or staying on course. And best of all, the weather cooperated nicely – we had 6 straight days of beautiful sunshine. The Engadine valley is truly one of the most picturesque places on earth. A hearty “thank you” to you and the whole crew at Ryder Walker for a great job organizing this fantastic trip.”
