Adventure of the Week: Cycle Carcassonne to the Coast

20 Mar , 2018  

Languedoc. Even the name conjures up images of a relaxed pace of life, of great food, great wine and great company, all under the Mediterranean sun. When most of us think of Languedoc, it is of rural life in the hills, but we want to take you beyond that, we want you to explore everything […]

Hidden away in the south-west of Ireland five fingers stretch out into the Atlantic. Each of those fingers provides an entirely pleasant walking experience.

Adventure of the Week: Across the Isle of Skye

28 Feb , 2018  

Broadford Bay Where

In the last couple of years, the Scottish Isle of Skye has gone crazy. Everyone seems to want to visit, but this is no surprise. The island is rich in wonder, with geography and geology that goes from jaw-dropping to completely bizarre. The island sells out of accommodation pretty quickly now and the main tourist […]

Adventure of the Week: Rob Roy Way

21 Feb , 2018  

Scotland is a country that begs to be discovered on foot. Under 2% of Scotland is urban, the rest being a mix of farmland and wild scenery that goes from nice, to spectacular, to ‘oh, I seem to be crying as I am in the most beautiful place I have ever been.’ With this much […]

Adventure of the Week: Tour of Tuscany: Florence to Montepulciano

15 Feb , 2018  

Want to see the very best of Tuscany in a week? Well, it is either you spend the time fretting over directions and parking in an expensive hire car, or you could pack yourself onto a coach tour and elbow people for the best camera position to get that snap.  Or, you could push yourself, […]

Adventure of the Week: Umbria – Trails to Assisi

7 Feb , 2018  

We all know about the joys of Tuscany. Its hilltop towns, its superb wines, friendly locals and outstanding cuisine.  The only issue with this is that we all know about it.  All of us. And many of us go there.  What if there was a secret Tuscany, a place where you could get all the […]

Adventure of the Week: West Highland Escape

31 Jan , 2018  

The West Highland Way is arguably the greatest long distance walk in the UK, and we would argue that it definitely is. However, there are a couple of reasons why people might not fancy it.  I don’t have the time for such a long hike. I am worried about how difficult it will be. I […]

Adventure of the Week – The Cotswold Way

17 Jan , 2018  

We all think of stripey tops and garlic as being a French stereotype, when in fact, they are actually just from Brittany, a small region in the north-west of the country.  Similarly, you could be mistaken to think the ‘green and pleasant land’ filled with villages with thatched cottage roof and bursting with cream teas […]
