Why Choose Macs
Why Macs?
Discover why 30,000+ travellers choose to travel The Macs Way each year

Self-guided travel with Macs Adventure is for independent, active people who don’t want to be part of the crowd or restricted by set dates and schedules. 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 holidays 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 are for you. We’re talking the West Highland Way, Tour Du Mont Blanc and the Passau to Vienna Danube Cycle Path, to name but 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 flavours, 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 holiday 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 organisation for you. All you have to do is turn up and enjoy!

All of our trips, including the most popular routes, are now available to book for 2025. The incredible Tour du Mont Blanc sells out every year, so get to the front of the queue. Planning to experience the delights of May on the West Highland Way? We can’t emphasise the urgency enough—spots fill up fast! Start writing your 2025 story now by planning ahead for a year filled with achievement. Secure your adventure today!

The best trips for late season sun, cooler temperatures in classic European destinations, and quieter trails. Make the most of Autumn 2024 on one of these adventures.

A walking holiday gives you time to immerse yourself in the landscape and culture. No timetables, just one foot in front of the other. Explore a classic UK trail for a warm welcome, or slow things down to truly discover your chosen destination on a Slower Adventure.

Cycling lets you explore more, but still at a pace that suits you. Browse the most popular cycling holidays for inspiration.

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