Trip Consulting

Want help planning your itinerary, figuring out transportation to the trailhead or packing for your European walking vacation? Consider a one-on-one trip consultation. We offer two options: Help With General Trip Planning ($90) and Help Putting Together Your Ideal Walking Vacation ($250).

(1) Help With General Trip Planning: $90

This option is recommended if you’re in the beginning stages of planning your walking vacation or would like general help with things like:

  • finding the right European trail for you
  • training for your hike
  • the right gear
  • the best way to pack your bag

The general trip consultation is done over the phone, during a 30-minute call. That’s usually plenty of time to tackle your most pressing questions, but if you want more time, you’re welcome to book a follow-up appointment.
