Vegetarian & Vegan Walking Holidays



We're not planning any more 'open' walking holidays for 2016 if you have a group that would like to be shown around an area and possibly cooked for too then please do still get in touch



What is special about a Lupine Adventure Co-op week-long walking holiday?


Your group will probably consist of 5-9 guests and at least two experienced Mountain Leaders. At the start of the holiday we will all go out walking together while we get to know each other and find out what everyone in the group wants to get out of the holiday.  Each evening we will suggest various options for walks (and maybe other activities) for the next day or two and will plan what to do based on the responses we receive. Some days we will all walk together, some days we will run two separate walks and some days some people will walk while others take a boat trip or relax back at the cottage, it is entirely up to you.


Because we staff these holidays with at least two qualified Mountain Leaders it gives us a flexibility that is almost unheard of on commercial walking holidays and should mean that everyone gets the maximum out of their holiday.


pizzaThe Food

Good food and nutrition is an integral part of Lupine Adventure walking holidays.When out walking your diet is very important. We will cook you great, tasty vegan food to give you the energy for all the walking you will be doing while you are with us. We try and balance the nutritional requirements of your body with the desire to eat really tasty ‘hey we’re on holiday’ food.

All food that we prepare will be vegan.

We decided to undertake the cooking for the holidays as, being vegetarian and vegan Mountain Leaders, working in the highlands for other holiday companies meant a diet of macaroni cheese, vegetable curry or cheese and tomato pizza for a week.

As well as the evening meals we will regularly bake bread before breakfast, make flapjack to take out on the walks and bake vegan cakes to go with your post-walk cup of tea.


Because our food is vegan it is suitable for Halal diets. However, some guests may drink wine on the holidays so the environment is not alcohol free (although the actual food is).



Custom made trips.

If you wish to create your own custom trip similar to those offered here then please get in touch. We can arrange everything including transport, accommodation, food, itinerary and qualified Mountain Leaders, or we can simply supervise the walking. Basically, we can do as much or as little as you want. We operate throughout Scotland, the Lake District, North Wales and Yorkshire. Contact us for a quote. We think that you will be pleasantly surprised at the value we offer.

This was our second Lupine holiday.  We really enjoyed the first one and knew there was always the chance another won’t meet our expectations, but there was no need to be concerned, it surpassed it!  Wonderful vegan food, home-baked and fresh.  Great walks, to suit our wishes and all transport provided.  It was an amazing week and we will certainly be looking out for your next one!  Thanks Lupine.



I had another fantastic week in Skye and came home feeling really relaxed. The scenery there is stunning and dramatic and the walks are enjoyable and challenging. The Lupine crew are really friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Food and accommodation both excellent.



Thank you Andy and Ben for a perfect holiday. I felt like I was with friends. The walking was my kind of walking – dramatic landscapes and challenging days, but not crazy! The house was cosy and comfortable and even though I am not a vegan, I enjoyed trying out delicious vegan food. I also enjoyed having a laugh and I’d definitely come again.

The week that we spent in the Lake District was probably the best holiday that we've ever had in England! ... We saw a lot more of the lakes than we would have done ourselves, and both Andy and Ben were great company - always full of anecdotes!

The holiday on the Isle of Skye was magical.

It was so relaxing to have the day planned for you plus having the choice of how challenged you wanted to be each day.

The food was lovely and plentiful and it was altogether a memorable holiday.

Well, they may just be the internet’s best kept holiday secret.

What makes them different is their bespoke approach and attention to detail. By keeping the group small and the guest-to-leader ratio low, the trips feel personal in a way I think few bigger companies could match.

...the leaders were always careful to respond to the wishes of each guest - which meant that we could enjoy all the social benefits of a group holiday, but still feel like individuals. No mean feat, managing all that for a group of disparate strangers!
