Self-Guided Holidays

Self-Guided Holidays

We offer a range of self-guided holidays throughout Europe, giving you the freedom to have your very own cycling, walking or cultural adventure at a pace that suits you. Pause or power on, the choice is up to you: cherry-pick your sightseeing stops along the way, decide to linger a little over your lunch, or set off an hour earlier to catch the coolest part of the day.

You’ll have our in-depth trip notes to keep you company – personally tested by our experts – which give you detailed kilometre-by-kilometre descriptions and include all the information you'll need, from recommendations for the best lunch and rest spots, to excursion routes and notes on places of interest. On our self-guided trips, you’ll never feel rushed, or alone. Plus, Exodus will transport your luggage for you between hotels and provide high-quality support through local suppliers, as well as 24-hour emergency support if required.

In focus: Self-guided holidays

"Having the freedom to make your own decisions was liberating. You can take a break when you like, so if you know there’s something special at the end of your day walking, you can set off early to spend more time there. We had the freedom to go off and do things however we chose. Just the two of us and peace and quiet – bliss, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life."
