About New Experience and our Walking Holidays

We are a small but growing family owned business. We are walkers putting together holidays for walkers but with many years of travel industry experience behind us.

Our 2017/18 programme of Self Guided and Guided Walking Holidays offers you a wide range of choices prepared very much with the individual and discerning traveller in mind.

All our locations are specially chosen to give you the very best New Experience of each region.....selected for their walking opportunities well away from mass tourism but with all the services you would expect.

We have a choice of centred and hotel to hotel walking holidays.

Above all we specialise in personal service and attention to our customers’ individual wishes. Our expert knowledge of each holiday centre is at your service from the moment you make your first enquiry to us.

We will give you advice and tailor make the holiday you want, when you want it.

Paul & Deborah Sawyer, Proprietors.

Walking holidays with total flexibility

All of our holidays are individually put together to meet the wishes of our clients. We are happy to arrange holidays of any duration greater than five nights to as many places as you wish travelling on the day and time and from the airport of your choice.

We will provide an individual quotation based on our prices shown under each holiday destination. If you wish to arrange your own travel that’s fine with us. For your convenience we publish our prices both with and without flights.

Hotel philosophy

Your hotel is a very important part of your walking holiday; somewhere to enjoy staying and eating in rather than to endure between days of walking. We have chosen hotels in the 2* to 4* categories for our centered holidays that meet our criteria and wherever possible have offered a choice in each centre. On our treks some hotels may be of a lower official grading but they still meet our standards.

We have stayed in every hotel we feature and visit them regularly to check on the facilities comfort friendliness and food. We ensure that the hotel is family owned wherever possible and look for enthusiasm professionalism a high standard of customer care and one that will give a friendly welcome to all of our clients. Many hoteliers have now become friends.

Make your own group

Should you and a group of friends be interested in a holiday together we will be pleased to provide a quotation for travel accommodation and if required the service of a guide. We are generally able to offer discounts for groups of 10 or over. For more details see our groups page.

We are fully bonded with ATOL for all holidays where we have booked air travel and with IPP insurance where we arrange 'land only' holidays, guaranteeing you complete financial security.


We would like to thank all the people and organisations, whose photographs we have used, for their generosity. We especially would like to thank clients who have sent us photographs of their holidays, some of which have been used here and many more of which have been used in the brochure. Please keep them coming!
