Our Holidays

We want to help you explore the world the active way, going at your own pace, and making discoveries that are uniquely personal to you. Our focus is on independent travel. That means that our trips are self-guided, enabling you to choose your own travel companions (or go solo for some me-time), pause when you choose to take in your surroundings, explore local attractions at your leisure, and enjoy the immense satisfaction of knowing that you've achieved something each and every day. Of course the trip will be meticulously planned, and you'll have full phone support available 24/7. Find out more about trip styles, activity grades, and how to book.

Our Team

Our 'People Behind the Scenery' are dedicated to delivering the best experience for our customers. Our many years of planning adventures mean that you'll always have peace of mind that your trip is exactly what you want it to be. We recruit people who are very much on board with our customer-first ethos, and enable them to walk the trails and pedal the paths so that they fully understand your needs.

Walking Holidays

Exploring the world on foot, you can truly travel at your own pace, taking in your surroundings slowly and with purpose. The ultimate achievement as you power your way towards your goal. Choose to relax on an easy going trail, or to challenge yourself to reach a once-in-a-lifetime goal. However you decide to do a walking holiday, do it your way. The most popular routes include the West Highland Way (Scotland), the Camino de Santiago, and the Tour du Mont Blanc, or, head off the beaten track to the wild Portuguese coast or rural Japan...
Walking Holidays

Cycling Holidays

Pedal power enables you to see more of your chosen destination. Nothing beats the feeling of freedom as you cover the miles with the breeze rushing by and the sun on your back (we'll try to arrange the weather - but no promises!). Cycling holidays come in all shapes and sizes. For the seasoned cyclist, world class challenges await such as the C2C (England) or the Tour of Tuscany. For novices (or those wanting to take it easy), the ever-popular (and flat!) Danube Cycle Path offers classic inn to inn cycling or bike & boat options. Bike hire can often include e-bike options too...
Cycling Holidays

Camino & Pilgrimage

Follow in the footsteps of 100s, if not 1000s of years of purpose-driven travellers by walking or cycling an ancient pilgrimage trail. Modern pilgrims walk for many reasons, sometimes religious, sometimes spiritual, sometimes for personal growth or to enhance their understanding of the world and its people. The most famous by far is the Camino de Santiago, and specifically the Camino Frances (the French Way) across Spain from the French border, all the way to Santiago, where the world-famous cathedral marks the end of the journey of a lifetime.
