Exodus UK Daywalks & Walking Weekends
We’ve built our reputation with a fantastic range of worldwide trekking holidays, now you can go trekking with Exodus in the UK. These taster treks provide the perfect opportunity to find out more about Exodus, the walking adventures we offer and to meet some of our leaders, office staff and fellow travellers. Whether you are looking to cram in some pre-trip training before a big ascent or a first-time trekker wanting to find out if a walking holiday is right for you, come along and join us!
This is what our Sales & Marketing Director had this to say the walk in the South Downs:
"My son and I thoroughly joined the inaugural Surrey Hills walk a few months ago. We both had a fabulous day out. Our guide Alex was a dynamo of energy and entertainment. Lunch was far more ‘gourmet’ than expected and the walk itself was pretty spectacular.” Ben Roseveare – Sales & Marketing Director
New for 2013! Following on from the success of last year’s daywalks, Exodus is proud to introduce three walking weekends in Britain. Join us as we head for the hills to enjoy some of the finest walking spots in Britain with the added benefit of being able to leave your map at home and indulge in some great company with like-minded walkers. Staying in local B&Bs, there’s also a chance to chat to Exodus representatives on the trail or at the evening slideshow.
Alternatively, try our Preparation Trek Weekends in the Brecon Beacons, Wales for Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp training.

The elegant Beetle & Wedge Boathouse restaurant provides us with a fabulous lunch, with choices ranging from Berkshire pork loin, Mediterranean Sea bass to lamb with aubergine and olive caviar.
The return follows the always lovely and flat Thames path. If time allows we pop into one of Goring’s fine pubs for an indulgent pint or glass of wine before the journey home.
