Discovery

There are two different ways to explore our Discovery trips - Drive and Hike, and Rail & Hike. By combining rail and driving options with walking or cycling, you have the flexibility and freedom to cover more ground and explore entire regions the way you want.

Experience the area's highlights and all it has to offer beyond the usual stomping grounds. By meeting locals, learning about their traditions, and discovering their heritage, you'll feel fully immersed in the place. 

Each accommodation you stay in has been hand-selected for its convenience, comfort, and warm welcome. Not sure what there is to do or where to eat? From the coziest café and the best brunch spot, to must-see sites and hidden historical landmarks, we can provide personal recommendations and insider suggestions, so you don’t have to worry about researching.
