Adventure of the Week: Walking in La Gomera

11 Jul , 2018  

Crowded beaches crammed with families, a sea awash with giant unicorn lilos, pasty white skin, slowly turning brown as holidaymakers drowse off their hangover in the sun.  Arid, dusty landscapes and dry, harsh volcanic landscapes. Ok, this may be a slightly over the top description of what people think of when they picture the Canary […]

Adventure of the Week: Island Hopping – Naxos and Santorini

4 Jul , 2018  

Whatever we think we know, the Greeks knew it first. While they may not have had twitter, or cheese in a tube, they had pretty much everything else going on for them.  Their strength of mind and views on society are still entirely relevant to our modern society, over 2000 years later.  The Greeks were […]

Adventure of the Week: Walking and Wellness in the Black Forest

27 Jun , 2018  

The Black Forest. Either it conjures up images of rich, unctuous, Kirch-laden cake, or some kind of spooky, witch-filled fairytale land of darkness.  Well, while you can find both of these things if you really try, much of the Black Forest region could not be further from this. The Black Forest is a place to […]

Adventure of the Week: Walking in Connemara

20 Jun , 2018  

Ireland. It conjures up such strong images of poetic beauty. Of simplicity, strong hearts and inquisitive minds and long, wild stretches of emerald countryside.  And while much of this is pure conjecture, there is a lot of truth to the stereotypical imagery we have of Ireland. Here at Macs Adventure, we are always looking for […]

13 Jun , 2018  

With summer in the air, our minds turn to the seaside. While there are untold beauties hidden all around the coast of Britain, the real seaside capital of the UK is Cornwall. This ancient Celtic kingdom has a continental feel, a relaxed seaside pace of life.  However, there is so much more to Cornwall, SO […]

Adventure of the Week – Annapurna Foothills: Trekking in Style

6 Jun , 2018  

Nepal. It is the big, scary place to walk.  It is Mt Everest, Manaslu, Mera Peak.  It is altitude, long hard days, nights wrapped in tents. All of these things offer amazing rewards, but not everyone might be up for some hardcore trekking in Nepal. So, it is Macs Adventure to the rescue, with some […]

Adventure of the Week: The Thames Path

30 May , 2018  

Trying to see everything a country has to offer in the space of one trip is pretty much impossible.  Everywhere has so much depth, history and highlights that you can’t quite do it all in one shot.  And while we are not going to turn around here and say that we have nailed this, we […]

Adventure of the Week – Moselle Cycle Path

9 May , 2018  

Exploring a region from the seat of a bike is exciting.  There is something special about propelling yourself along a route, bonding with your bike, so that after every stop you are eager to jump back on and get going again. But, it can be daunting for people who have not been on a bike […]
