IMAGINE YOU HAVE A FRIEND...
Imagine you have a close friend, someone who knows you about all the things you like, all the things you don't. They seem to have impeccable timing and seem to always do the right thing at the right time. They always know just the right place to go, when to go, how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. They also have a great eye for value and at the same time, know that no detail is too small. Lastly, they always seem well organized. They not only know the best place to eat, but when its least crowed or the most fun. It may be a restaurant, but it might also be a seasonal festival or even a private home.
NOW imagine that person went to the Basque Region, Spain or Northern Portugal for you to walk and map out a complete adventure for you. Imagine that they took notes about every step they took along the way including all the things mentioned above.
Then, with you in mind, they booked all the best of the best; food, accommodations, special events, occasional guides, transportation, luggage transfers, event and meal reservations, and maybe most importantly, the most fantastic walks and hikes the region has to offer. Then they combined all the information and logistical details into a little book just for you so all you have to think about is walking and following the directions.
Finally, they give you that booklet along with contact information for nearby support people, just in case you need a little help with anything along the way. This is how our SELF-GUIDED ADVENTURES work, except we charge for the book. :)
The details of your adventure come with over 3 decades of experience of getting them just right. Our plan is built using our own brand of "must-see" spots, but also knowing that each day offers new and sometimes exciting unique opportunities for us to explore together or on your own. Either way, true freedom is knowing that you have a team of adventure travel professionals covering the details so you can enjoy a big adventure.

SMALL GATHERINGS (Groups)
Our small gatherings usually consist of 6 - 12 guests. They can be a collection of friends and family, random guests, or a combination of both that join are joining us on a selected departure date. You can see the most recent trips we've added to our 2021, 22 & 23 lineup here.
This means we have just the right number of people to walk with and share experiences during the day; a favorite beverage, great conversation, and excellent dinner by night. Smaller gatherings allow us flexibility in our scheduling and increase our ability to accommodate guests with varied walking paces and interests. Your Walking Connection host and local resident guides lead you on curated adventures and always know the best places to point out if you choose to spend time exploring on your own.
