Not just across the landscape, but through the landscape.
With Shepherds Walks you will not just be taken on a walk or course, you will be entertained and informed about the countryside and landscapes you pass through.
On our Shepherds Walks guided walks the guide will stop and tell you things you want to know and bring the countryside to life. This is also applies to self-led walking guides but in printed form.
Our guided walks are certainly not a of the ‘Follow me, I know where I am going’ type. Each is tailored to the needs and interests of the group on the day help to make for a great experience.
At Shepherds Walks the guides have not just learnt everything from a text book, but instead they all lived and have a passion and enthusiasm for the landscape we walked through.
Your trip will be filled with real stories from the countryside you are walking through.
