Slower Adventures

Whether you’re walking or cycling, our Slower Adventures are a blend of picturesque trails and laidback exploration. Whilst the active days are still certainly active, the distances are slightly shorter and more easy-going than our other trip types.

Alongside active days, you’ll have free time to savour your surroundings. Wander the streets of nearby towns and villages, visit a local vineyard, explore heritage sites, or simply spend the afternoon grazing. La dolce vita!

If there’s a lot to see in a particular place, you may spend more than one night in the same location. But wherever you are, you’ll unwind in the relaxing atmosphere of charming inns and quaint hotels.

Make memories, take lots of pictures and explore the place at your own pace.
