The Wayfarers


A love for strolling the English countryside served as the original inspiration for the Wayfarers, which was founded in 1984 in South West England. Since then, the outfit has slowly expanded its trekking options to include not only the British Isles but Europe at large, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Still, the core tenets of its itineraries remain the same: footpaths through pastoral landscapes and overnights in converted castles and farmhouses.
