Many thanks EasyWays for your valuable, fair, and excellent work.

Prices are on a per person basis, based on two people sharing a room. The prices do not take into account single person supplements – these vary per walk and can be found on the specific walk page.



Unless otherwise stated in the specific walk description:

Breakfast is the only meal included.

Packed lunches can be ordered on arrival at your accommodation, usually on the day before they are required. Some locations do not provide a packed lunch service due to their close proximity to local shops, where a good range of provisions is available. Evening meals are available at all stages of every walk, sometimes in your accommodation and sometimes in nearby pubs and restaurants.



One bag per person is included in the EasyWays Fixed Price. The baggage carrying service will transfer your main luggage between each stage, allowing you the comfort of taking a lightweight back pack for essentials along with you, safe in the knowledge that the rest of your luggage will be waiting at your next accommodation.   The weight of each bag must not exceed the baggage handling company terms and conditions (usually around 18-20kg). The exact limit is shown on the page for your specific walk and will be confirmed in your EasyWays Tour Pack. An excess weight bag may not be moved if it contravenes the Health and Safety Policy of the Baggage Handling Company.



At EasyWays, we have an excellent overview of accommodation providers and up-to-date information on room availability. We will do everything we can to satisfy your individual preferences.  Accommodation can be limited at certain stages particularly during summer months and especially on weekend start dates. The best way to ensure that you get exactly what you want is to book well in advance.

In circumstances where your preferred location is no longer available we will contact you with alternative suggestions that typically can be a variation on hotels, guest houses and hostels, a change of start date, (perhaps to a week day), a variation to the route or the inclusion of private transfers. (see below)



It may not always be possible to accommodate large groups at the same establishment.  This especially applies to smaller guest houses.  If it becomes necessary to split a group every effort will be made to book accommodation in close proximity and recognise that should certain group members require to  be accommodated at the same establishment, this should be made clear on the Enquiry Form or when speaking with us at time of booking.



It is usually possible to leave your car at the beginning of the route and return by public transport to collect it at the end of the walk. Some accommodation providers will allow you use their car park free of charge, others will charge a daily fee. If this is not possible EasyWays will advise the nearest a public car park to your walk start point and / or the possibility of street parking.  Pease enquire at the time of booking.



Some tours include taxi transfers as an integral part of the walk. This can occur in remote areas where accommodation is very limited and it becomes necessary to overnight at one stage for two evenings with a transfer back and forth to the next stage start point.  The cost of this additional transfer is not included in the Tour Fixed Price but will be advised to you before you commit to booking your tour..



Your EasyWays Booking comes with an electronic Tour Pack containing all information required for your walk.  Detailed information with GPS mapping to of the route and exact location of your overnight accommodation is included as are local information such as places to eat, local bus and rail services.

All walks also include travel information to help you get to the start and from the end of your walk.



You will be provided with contact details of all the accommodations reserved in your name and an emergency telephone contact number so that you can travel with peace of mind at all times.



Travel insurance is not included in your tour and we highly recommend that you make your own arrangements at time of booking.
