Slow Walking offers you to walk in a different and environmentally friendly way
Our aim is to gain knowledge of the destination, how? Reading the landscape, chatting to the people we find along the way, staying in local businesses, eating local products and sharing their gastronomic culture.
We want to get away the idea of traveling in a rush, using the destination and monuments in a hurry. Taking into account our philosophy of being responsible and alternative travelers, the services and providers of Slow Walking have been carefully chosen to add an extra value to the traveler. We are fully committed to preserving our environment, being responsible and sustainable.
We are located in San Sebastián, an office designed for thinking and creating travels and alternatives walking routes, always avoiding the mass tourism and consumerism. We are an unconventional travel agency, we are different.

We will take care of your luggage, catering, accommodation, visits and you will only have to concentrate on walking. That is our main goal.
In other words, we offer you quality and customised attention.
Our customer’s hiking experience
Customer satisfaction is our main concern as well as the best guarantee for Slow Walking to keep on working.
We want our customers to be travellers not just tourists
Our aim is to extend the experience of our holiday, in which we invest so much time, money and wishful thinking. We don’t want it to finish at the end of our walk. We want to exceed the expectations of the experience and create a vivid memory of the good moments lived during our walk. We want our clients to recall their experience when they look at the pictures of the trip once at home.
We believe in originality, good work and customer’s astonished approbation
FEATURES OF OUR TRIPS
We travel on foot.
All the routes have a strong focus on the nature and culture of the places visited.
No more than necessary. No less. Our prices offer a quality holiday at reasonable prices. You will only pay for what you want to use. Our basic services are more than enough to cover all your needs, but if you are looking for a higher category accommodation or a tailor-made transfer, or perhaps a couple of days in a spa to round up your holiday you only have to ask for it.
A van carries the bags and heavy luggage
A guide will always be available on a direct phone for any question when he or she does not walk with the group.
In Slow Walking we are really aware of the variety of people that enjoy hiking. For some people a three-hour walk can be exhausting while for some others it might only mean a light walk.
The majority of our stages are designed so they can be reduced at the beginning or at the end. If you feel tired and do not want to go on walking, you can finish the last part of the stage by car. Or, if you want to start a bit later in the morning, you can join the other hikers one or two hours later.This flexibility makes all the members of the group feel comfortable.
One of the things I enjoy is to find the reasons why I like some places so much. The more I get to understand the reasons, the more I enjoy the place
Only when you have reached a destination on foot you can say you have been there
We have decades of experience in mountain, in hiking as a hobby and in tourism as a profession. Putting all these elements together has allowed us to create Slow Walking.
