Walking Tours

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 Tours

Biking Tours

Cover more of your chosen destination on bike. 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!). Bike tours 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...
Biking Tours

Camino & Pilgrimage

Follow in the footsteps of 1000s of travelers by walking or biking 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). Walk 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.
