Wandering Aengus Treks is an independent company providing self guided and guided walking holidays since 2001
In 2001 Karen and Pete Royall set up Wandering Aengus Treks, offering high quality walking holidays in the UK. Our aim is simple: to provide quality walking holidays to those who love mountains and places of natural beauty. For our self-guided options we offer a personalised service, comprehensive information pack, secure baggage transfer, and we take exceptional care in the choice of accommodation, to ensure you have the best experience possible.
We have established a range of self-guided Lake District walking tours, as well as easy-to-book walking holidays on the major popular Long Distance Paths (LDPs) of Northern England. We are also keen walking route developers so as well as the classics, we have one or two gems you won't find anywhere else!
We don't offer hundreds of itineraries from Lands End to John O' Groats, but our self-guided holidays are well researched, covering ground we walk ourselves and we pride ourselves on our good relationships with our local partners, whether that be your host on a long distance route, the person picking you up from the railway station, or the driver who delivers your luggage. With us you can relax knowing everything will be taken care of personally.
Last year was a difficult year for us as it was for most people, but we are still here and ready to assist you with planning your next UK adventure. Give us a call or write to us at info@WATreks.com.
Wandering Aengus Treks also provide guiding services, particularly in the Lake District using qualified ML or IML leaders. Over the past 20 years we have provided services to schools, walking clubs and team-building groups from the public and private sector.
In addition to the evidence of our clients' testimonials (please read our reviews), we are long standing members of the Cumbria Tourist Board.
100% Financial Protection
We have the strongest possible protection of your holiday payments in place. All monies paid to Wandering Aengus Treks are held in trust by an independent authority until the completion of your holiday. Unlike other schemes which depend on insurance payouts or bonds with third party organisations such as ABTA, in the unlikely event of our insolvency, getting your money back is a simple one-step process. Details of the independent trustees are provided with your booking confirmation.
Our unique name comes from the poem 'The Song of Wandering Aengus' by William Butler Yeats
