Slower Adventure tours in England

England is bursting with regional character, and the best way to uncover it is by doing a Slower Adventure with Macs Adventure. These tours allow you to turn the pace down a notch and take in the culture, try the food and live the local way of life. As the walks are typically shorter, it allows you to stop off along the way for an impromptu afternoon tipple in the pub, treat yourself to an indulgent cream tea or visit a stately home, castle, or museum you might have otherwise passed.

Our flagship Slower Adventure tour, The Cotswolds in Comfort, lets you visit the best parts of this quintessentially British pocket of rural England. Walk through its serene rolling hills stopping off at its picture-perfect honey-colored villages.

In the North of England, our Heart of the Lake District tour visits the UNESCO-listed tranquil valleys and pristine lakes in the land of esteemed writers Wordsworth, Wainwright, and Beatrix Potter. Try its gingerbread in Grasmere, taste its ales in the evening and stay in traditional Cumbrian inns offering the warmest of welcomes!

Our Highlights of Cornwall's North Coast tour is perfect for anyone that loves coastal walking. An "Area of Natural Beauty," walk along cliffside paths anchored by dramatic headlands, golden beaches, and hidden coves, and spend your time exploring its pretty fishing villages in the afternoons.
