Loan a GPS on a walking holiday in Northumberland

Loan a GPS on a walking holiday in Northumberland

Sat 6th February 2016

GPS Training have teamed up with Shepherds Walks Holidays to really add the icing to the cake to their self guided walking holidays in Northumberland.

As you may know Shepherds Walks Holidays deliver some quality walking holidays along St Oswald’s way, St Cuthbert’s Way, Northumberland Coastal Path and the Hadrian’s Wall trail.

Most of the trails they deliver are well waymarked but a couple of them where slightly harder to find your way along. Therefore here at GPS Training we have helped Shepherds walks Holidays set up a ‘loan a GPS’ system for their self guided walking holidays.

The GPS units will be pre programmed with the gpx files (tracks) for each of their self guided walking holidays – Hadrian’s Wall Trail, St Oswald’s Way, St Cuthbert’s Way, Norhumberland Coastal Path and the Berwickshire Coastal Path.

With any Shepherds walks holiday they meet the clients at the start of their holiday and at this point they will give them a brief of how to use the GPS unit.

Which GPS units are they going to be using?

Here a GPS Training we have advised the best unit for the first time GPS user would be the Garmin eTrex 25 touch.

Once started away the GPS unit will guide them along the relevant trail so there is no chance of anybody making the wrong turn.

First time in the UK.

As far as we can see this is the first time a UK walking holiday provider has offered such an option and we really hope it will enhance the walkers experience for those wanting to walk these stunning long distance trails that they deliver - Hadrian’s Wall Trail, St Oswald’s way, St Cuthbert’s way, Norhumberland Coastal Path and the Berwickshire Coastal Path.

Why not give them a call.

If you fancy a great walking holiday with the bonus of trying out the new Garmin eTrex 25 GPS unit please do give Shepherds Walks Holiday a call.

Alternatively visit their web site, download a tour dossier and start planning your walking holiday for this year. You can find out more about Shepherds Walks Holidays here.

We walked with these guys last year and had a great time. I think we may be venturing back as this is a great addition to an already great service they offer.
