Our walking holidays in the French Alps and the Dolomites, and walking breaks in the Lake District and Peak District, are perfect for those who enjoy the company of others and being part of a small group of like minded people: Many arrive as strangers and leave as friends.
We set out to offer good value for money walking holidays in great locations; our knowledge and service will always ensure your stay will be a truly memorable one. All our walking holidays and breaks are based in personally and carefully chosen traditional inns and hotels; we have selected them for their friendliness, warm hospitality and excellent locations.
But, don t take our word for it, here are what some of our guests had to say...
"My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Hartington in the Peak District. Mike and Paula are the most friendly and helpful guides and hosts, and they took us on three most interesting and attractive walks. The Charles Cotton hotel was most comfortable and the evening meals were delicious. We stayed an extra night and would love to return next year, we are also going to Chamonix with them in June this year.
Caroline Jones & Tom Dameral from Bristol who joined one of our Peak District walking breaks.
"Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our Peak District short break. It was an excellent walking/eating experience with one aspect balancing out the other HOPEFULLY."
Neil and Louise Page from Sussex who joined one of our Peak District walking breaks
"We had such a super week with Pinnacle Walking Holidays at Chalet Blanche in Chamonix. Great weather, great walks, great company; highly recommend them to all levels of walkers."
John and Jane from Nottingham who joined us for a walking holiday in the French Alps
"Thanks to Mike and Paula for showing us a stunning place, we will return."
The Stephenson Family from Cumbria who came on a walking holiday in the French Alps
"Thank you Mike and Paula for a fantastic two weeks in Chamonix, from the flight transfers to the accommodation and walks everything was superb and we would not hesitate to recommend Pinnacle. The only problem was Paula never taught my wife to always have a beer ready at the end of a day s walking."
Mick and Sue Bentham from Yorkshire who booked a walking holiday in the French Alps
"Just had an amazing week s walking in Chamonix with Mike and Paula, nothing was to much trouble! Looking forward to the Dolomites in 2013."
Steve and Carol Williams from Cheshire who enjoyed a walking holiday in the French Alps
"I recently enjoyed a week walking in the Chamonix area with Mike and Paula. The walking programme which was adapted to suit the unpredictable weather was varied and I particularly enjoyed views and flowers above the Col de Balme. Mike and Paula were very helpful in also accomodating my husband David who climbed rather than walked. We both enjoyed evening drinks and the hot tub"
Faith Williams from Newcastle on a walking holiday in the French Alps
