Adventure of the Week: Walking in the Picos de Europa

9 Oct , 2019  

Where is my favourite place to visit? It’s the north of Spain. Best food in the world? North of Spain. Friendliest people I have met? North of Spain. Best mountain range for walking?….. ah, the north of Spain doesn’t have any good mountain ranges. Or so I thought.  Time to add a new item to […]

Adventure of the Week: Walking in La Gomera

2 Oct , 2019  

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: Bavarian Alps: Hiking the Salt Trail

4 Sep , 2019  

Overtoursim is something that we are hearing about more and more. With the rise of Air B&B culture, there are very few Venetians left in Venice, young people in Barcelona and the Isle of Skye are struggling to stay in the place they were born because they can’t afford the house prices. Many canny holidaymakers […]

Hiking in Style – You’re worth it!

26 Aug , 2019  

Last week I was lucky enough to go on our Walking the Catalan Coast in Style trip. There are not enough superlatives to describe this trip and for me, it was worth every penny. Each day exceeded our expectations! Most people associate the Costa Brava coast with high-rise hotels and stag and hen parties. However, […]

Adventure of the Week: Classic Walks of Gran Paradiso

21 Aug , 2019  

Alpine mountain trails arguably provide the greatest scenery. With the extra effort of walking up there, you are generally rewarded with a little bit more in the scenery department. However, often with this amazing scenery comes extra people, all wishing to bask in the glorious surroundings. Wouldn’t it be lovely to find a quieter part […]

There are others where we combine this with other components to really let you get to grips with what a country or region has to offer. While on this trip, there are portions of […]
