Wayfayers Walking Tours Launch Lit-Centric Strolls for New Season

The Wayfayers, purveyors of scenic strolls throughout the world, will mark its 27th annual season with 85 walks through 14 countries, including three brand new itineraries like a Hampshire walk celebrating Britain's best-loved author Jane Austen.

The Jane Austen tour follows on the heels of the lit-centric collection that Wayfayers launched last year, which honored the Brontë sisters. Jane Austen Country is a six-day walk exploring the village lanes and footpaths of the Hampshire countryside, offering a in-depth exploration of the author's favorite haunts, including Steventon, Chawton and Oakley Hall, many of which formed the backdrop to much of her work. A discussion with an Austen expert is a highlight of this bibliophilic walk, along Hampshire's country byways, village lanes and footpaths.

Offered June 27, July 25 and August 29.

Other new walks are Suffolk Coast & Cambridge, a six-day program featuring visits to Orford, the 12th-century castle built by King Henry II, and Cambridge University; and Tuscany Gardens & Gourmet, a seven-day immersion in the fragrant farms, gardens and vineyards that anchor the region's rich culinary tradition.
