Wine Country Trekking

Wine Country Trekking provides self-guided, inn-to-inn walking vacations in California with superb hiking, lodging, food and wine.


Our self-guided treks are vacation packages that bring together fabulous hiking or walking, lodging, food, and wine, allowing you to “Experience Luxury on Foot”. They are based in the San Francisco Bay Area, which includes the Wine Country of Napa and Sonoma.

Premiere lodging, breakfasts, wine tastings, transfers, special excursions and logistics are included in your trek. Uniquely designed in the European style of hiking village to village, some of the treks are accomplished on foot with very few transfers necessary.

The treks are self-guided, meaning that you travel with your own family or friends, not with a tour of strangers. We provide you with a complete itinerary, including custom maps and detailed trail notes, and arrange all lodging and transfers for you.

You have the confidence of knowing that everything is taken care of and the freedom to manage your own time. Our in-depth local knowledge makes our maps and trail notes invaluable assets on your trek. Our custom maps chart your course on well marked trails that accommodate all levels of hikers.

We arrange luggage transport between inns and provide details to obtain a lunch for the trail. This allows you to enjoy your hike each day with just a simple day pack for your Trail Guide and lunch. At a leisurely pace the daily hikes can be completed in 5 to 7 hours.

On many treks winery tours and tastings along your route are included. Our San Francisco Bay treks include ferry rides and entry fees to state and national parks.

Lodging on your trek ranges from luxury boutique hotels in the cities to charming country inns with all the amenities one would expect of premier lodging. All of the lodging is among the best the area has to offer and fitting for a first class trekking experience. The rooms chosen are our favorites, often with outdoor areas and fireplaces. If you are interested in a lower cost option for a standard room, which may be available in some locations, please contact us.
