We find beautiful & uncommon destinations, carefully curating trips to these places where our groups authentically explore the world on foot and connect with people up close.


For us, it’s always all about people. Our trips are designed to forge meaningful connections with each other, the environment and all of the local folks we engage with along the way.


We work intentionally to preserve and respect the precious authenticity and purity of the places we visit by supporting conservation and giving back to local communities.



Pathways offers unique worldwide hiking & walking itineraries that focus on the active and curious traveler’s experience. Our trips are handcrafted from the ground up. Our team of local and industry experts curate exceptional experiences by combining beautiful trails, local culture, authentic discovery and inspiring adventure.

We offer a variety of guided & self-guided & customized itineraries.

We offer a selection of self-guided itineraries throughout Europe, South America and the USA. This type of trip is great if you prefer your own group & your own dates and if you’d rather travel independently without the services of a guide. All self-guided trips are fully customizable to your ideal schedule, budget & activity level.


Traveling with a local guide is a wonderful way to learn about the places you’re visiting. We’ll take care of everything so you don’t have to and, due to the small size of each group, we’ll take the time to learn about and develop a relationship with each Pathways traveler. Join us in adventuring in a beautiful place with a group of fun-loving people.


With our private trips, you'll have the flexibility to select your own dates and customize any of our group itineraries as much or as little as you'd like. You'll have a personal, local hiking guide who will help you experience the culture, history and beauty of trails you're hiking on and the places that you're exploring. All private trips are fully customizable to your ideal schedule, budget & activity level.


Taking care of our world and giving back to the environment and communities we visit are of the utmost importance to us. When you travel with Pathways, you’re gaining a life-changing experience and you’re also giving back to the world.
