Agents will be able to access the European activity holiday specialist’s entire product range of more than 100 trips – which are mostly self-guided – across the UK and Europe through the website.

It will have a user-friendly holiday search to help navigation, which agents can use to find trips based on a number of basic criteria including departure dates, trip duration and price. All information about each trip will be listed on a single page.

Meanwhile, a new inspiration and advice page will contain trip and accommodation ideas, explaining how itineraries are graded and offering practical advice on how to prepare for a holiday.

Holidays can be matched to people’s levels of fitness, making it easier for agents not familiar with walking holidays to offer their clients the appropriate trip.

Tali Emdin, Sherpa Expeditions manager, said: “Traditionally our core customer base has been dealing with Sherpa Expeditions directly. However, we have noticed that interest from travel agents has remained strong over the years.

“We had a very old website – the whole look needed to be upgraded and modernised to make it easier for agents to use.”

Prices lead in at £280pp for the four-day Yorskhire Dales mini-break and includes three nights’ B&B accommodation, notes and a route map.
