Sherpa Expeditions organised my recent self-guided Coast to Coast trek All the arrangements went seamlessly, and the route notes and maps provided were extremely comprehensive and tailored to my itinerary. All my pre-departure questions were answered promptly and to my satisfaction. I absolutely recommend Sherpa Expeditions and I will be using them again in the future. Thank you so much!

We booked a self-guided hiking trip to La Gomera with Sherpa. Service provided was excellent, easy booking, very friendly. Trip itself exceeded our expectations, good itinerary. Hiking notes were clear (We didn't get lost once 😀). Would definitely book with Sherpa again, far easier than sorting it all out ourselves.

My husband and I complete the Great Glenn Way in May of this year. What a treat it was! You could choose to do a lower path around the lochs or a higher path in the hills. We chose the latter and were rewarded by magnificent sights. As usual, Sherpa organised everything beautifully. It was our 5th walk with Sherpa, so they must be doing something right! We are about to do a 6th!! We really recommend the Great Glenn Way.
