Self-guided travel with Macs Adventure is for independent, active people who don’t want to be restricted by set dates and schedules. With no group or guide, you can go at your own pace, with the people you choose, without the worry of planning routes or arranging trip logistics. We take care of all that for you. It’s active travel, led by you.

Trip Types

We have grouped our tours into 5 categories to help you navigate towards your ideal trip.

Classic Routes


If you’re the active, outdoorsy type, who’s interested in taking on the great routes of the world or looking for a challenge, then our Classic Routes category is for you. We’re talking the West Highland Way, Tour Du Mont Blanc and the Passau to Vienna Danube Cycle Path, to name a few!



For those looking to follow a path of self-discovery. Our Pilgrimage and Camino routes take you on a journey through diverse landscapes and local flavors, while meeting like-minded adventurers along the way.

Slower Adventures


Where walking and cycling meet easy-going exploring, our Slower Adventures are the perfect combination. Most days are filled with picturesque journeys with some free time to dive into the destination and experience the people, local food and culture as you go.

In Style


After a day of exciting adventures and soaking up unbeatable scenery, retreat to stylish accommodations and unwind with fine food and wine. This trip type is for those who like sophisticated places to stay and are looking for active routes but still want the trip to feel special.



Think of it as a ‘local’s guide’ to the best of the region. It includes a combination of activity and transportation to give you the freedom to explore and cover more ground at your own pace. We do all the research and organization for you. All you have to do is turn up and enjoy!

Keep your cool on these active vacations which make the most of Europe, away from the intensity of the summer heat. We’ve rounded up all the top spots for your July adventure. Browse for inspiration here.

To slow down and walk through an area is to really immerse yourself in it. A walking tour gives you time to interact with local people, eat when and where you want, no timetables!


Biking lets you explore more, but still at a pace that suits you. Bike around the hill towns of Tuscany, or take it easy on the banks of the Danube.


Walking with added spirituality. Pilgrimage tours like the Camino de Santiago allow you to connect with the land, its history and with yourself.
