Every VBT vacation is designed to satisfy a wide variety of fitness levels of our travelers. You’ll have choices of routes with varied terrains and distances each day, so you can walk as much or as little as you wish. If you find that your pace differs from one day to the next, or from that of your traveling companion or group, there will always be a suitable route option.
We occasionally walk from one lodging to the next, with our support vehicle shuttling luggage ahead of us. Our vehicle typically waits at designated checkpoints to offer a lift if you’d like a rest. When this isn’t feasible due to unpaved roads or inaccessible trails, support is never far away because we also use various local resources—perhaps a gondola, a motorboat or ferry, cable car, public bus, or even a horse-drawn jaunting cart. It’s a great way to provide a helping hand and add some fun.
Whether you walk the Wayfarer Trail along Lake Como, through green meadows by Ireland’s Killarney Lakes, or a quiet byway at Vietnam’s Perfume River, the choice is always yours.Learn More

A perfect blend of nature, exercise, fresh food, culture, and fun, walking vacations with VBT allow you to experience the very best, at the perfect pace. Whether you choose to travel with a group or prefer to fly solo, you are sure to make rich connections and build friendships.
After each day, you’ll be hungry. Fortunately, a bounty of culinary delights awaits you, whether it’s an Argentine steak with a glass of Malbec, a bowl of Vietnamese phô, or a signature VBT picnic. Because at VBT, we treat your dining experience as a vivid, essential, an unforgettable feature of regional heritage and local tradition: cuisine as culture.
On a VBT active vacation, your lodging is a destination in itself. From a French château to an Austrian shipmaster’s house. Or a self-sustaining eco-lodge, inaccessible by road, set in a verdant, New Zealand national park to an agriturismo farmhouse in Tuscany.
A VBT vacation deftly blends physical activity with cultural interaction and hands-on discovery, rewarding you in so many ways. We’ll introduce you to local people of interest, teach you a bit of the language, provide historical background, and help you truly experience regional life and culture.
