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 […]

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: The Black Forest Gorge Trail

4 Apr , 2018  

Is it the merely the home of a cake, famous in the 1980s? Or is it a witch-filled area of woodland, gloomy and dark and filled with terror? No, you will be pleased to hear that the Black Forest region in Germany is neither of these things. In fact, it is an area filled with […]

Wildlife on the King Ludwig Way

13 Apr , 2014  

The landscape along the King Ludwig Way is mostly a mixture of coniferous forest and meadow. This is ideal country for Buzzards and Kites; nesting sites in the trees and open meadow for scavenging. Buzzards are frequently seen spiralling upwards in currents of warm air but they are ground feeders and as you emerge from […]
