Trip Types

We have grouped our holidays into 5 categories to help you navigate towards your ideal trip.

Classic Routes


If you’re the active, outdoorsy type, who’s interested in taking on the great routes of the world or looking for a challenge, then our Classic Routes are for you. We’re talking the West Highland Way, Tour Du Mont Blanc and the Passau to Vienna Danube Cycle Path, to name but a few!



For those looking to follow a path of self-discovery. Our Pilgrimage and Camino routes take you on a journey through diverse landscapes and local flavours, while meeting like-minded adventurers along the way.

Slower Adventures


Where walking and cycling meet easy-going exploring, our Slower Adventures are the perfect combination. Most days are filled with picturesque journeys with some free time to dive into the destination and experience the people, local food and culture as you go.

In Style


After a day of exciting adventures and soaking up unbeatable scenery, retreat to stylish accommodations and unwind with fine food and wine. This trip type is for those who like sophisticated places to stay and are looking for active routes but still want the holiday to feel special.



Think of it as a ‘local’s guide’ to the best of the region. It includes a combination of activity and transportation to give you the freedom to explore and cover more ground at your own pace. We do all the research and organisation for you. All you have to do is turn up and enjoy!

The best trips for late season sun, cooler temperatures in classic European destinations, and quieter trails. Make the most of autumn 2023 on one of these adventures.

To slow down and walk through an area is to really immerse yourself in it. A walking holiday gives you time to immerse yourself in your destination, no timetables, just one foot in front of the other.

Cycling lets you explore more, but still at a pace that suits you. Browse the most popular cycling holidays for inspiration.

Walking with added spirituality. Walking ancient routes, pilgrimages like the Camino de Santiago allow you to connect with the land, its history and with yourself.
