​​​​​​​Prepa​​ring to book your walk ​

​Your booking date is for your departure date only.

The huts cannot be booked and every walker needs to carry a tent for use on the platforms in the event that the huts are full.

The booking system caters for independent walkers, in groups of up to eight. Larger groups are encouraged to be considerate of other walkers.

Before you book online, have the following information handy:

  • Walker names and ages
  • Concession card information
  • Credit card information (Visa and Mastercard only)

Bookings for the 2022-2023 walking season will open on 7 July at 9am.     

The PWS is using a new booking system which we hope will improve the customer experience.  

This year the information we collect has changed from previous years. To help make your booking quickly when the season opens, you will need the name of each walker, their state or country of origin and their date of birth.

We hope to see you on the track soon.
