Chosen for their unique contribution to wine making, here is our pick of three of the best regions from around the world that have made the grade…

Italy Walking and Cycling tours

The Langhe region of Piedmont boasts softly rolling hills, encased in layers of vines, sunflowers and oak forests. Chosen for its rich vineyards in pretty towns including Barolo and Barbaresco, vine pollen has been found in the area dating from C5 BC. Why not explore the gastronomic region on foot or by bike?

7 Unique Christmas Destinations

August 31st, 2017 by

Walking on Gozo

It’s that time of year when we start getting inquiries from people looking for something truly unique to do over the Christmas holidays. Our popular Christmas program includes cycling or walking to varied destinations, including the peaceful Mediterranean island of Gozo (sister island to Malta); warm winter walking in the best of the unspoiled  Western Algarve region of Portugal and, in the Canary Islands, walking along the dramatic volcanic landscapes, black sand beaches and lava flows of Tenerife or Gran Canaria . For something closer to home, imagine strolling along the pink sand beaches of Bermuda, a tiny historic treasure trove of natural beauty- flowers, fish, birds – and fabulous year-round sunshine.

 For some, only a white Christmas will do!  So get on your sleigh and fly to traditional Norwegian hamlet of Venabu for a cross-country skiing holiday, or enjoy walking & cross-country skiing in the pristine natural beauty of the Leutasch Valley in Austria – a true winter wonderland!

Here’s the complete run down of tours on offer for the December 23 2017 to January 3 2018 time frame:

Gozo is the second largest of the Maltese islands, where the slow pace of life along with the air of tranquility makes for the ideal choice for a walking holiday. You stay at the 5***** Hotel Ta Cenc, wonderfully secluded and set in 400 acres of private grounds. Guests are accommodated in individual, tastefully furnished stone bungalows, each with its own terrace. Breakfast is a delicious hot and cold buffet, and evening meals offer a mouth-watering selection of Gozitan and Italian specialties, served al fresco on the patio under a 200-year old carob tree.

Islands of Bermuda Walk

Islands of Bermuda Walk

This self-guided walking holiday explores the quintessential island paradise of Bermuda, a sub-tropical gem, seemingly adrift in the North Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by the temperate Gulf Stream, Bermuda is a stunning archipelago of 181 islands and islets, the 8 largest of which form the fishhook-shaped mainland. You’ll stay in a deluxe ocean view room
(with either balcony or terrace) at the exclusive 64-room AAAA Coco Reef Hotel on the edge of the best private
beach on the island and just 15 minutes from the capital, Hamilton. Meals are taken either in the elegant Cafe Coco
signature restaurant or on Tamara’s Terrace overlooking the pool.

Walking in Algarve’s Wild West Portugal

Far beyond the ‘developed’ Algarve in Portugal’s most southerly Atlantic corner, lies the Sagres Peninsula, a startlingly pristine region of golden beaches, imposing cliffs, swaying flower meadows, dramatic coastlines and tree-lined paths. Locals here offer warm welcome and hold on to the traditions of rural life. The easy-to-follow trails take in rich verdant valleys, pine forests and rugged coastlines, making exploring onfoot amazingly rewarding.

Walking on Gran Canaria

Less than 100 miles off the north west coast of Africa, in the center of the Canary Islands archipelago, sits the volcanic island of Gran Canaria – often referred to as ‘a miniature continent’ with its extraordinarily varied landscapes ranging from the north’s lush green forests and valleys, to the towering mountainous interior, to the desert-like dunes and beautiful white beaches of its southern shores.

Venabu Norway

Cross-country Skiing in Venabu Norway

This is one of our most popular cross-country skiing holidays. Based in central Norway, on the edge of the Rondane National Park, looking down on the Gudbrandsdalen Valley, just north of Lillehammer. The landscape is dramatic and full of contrasts from spectacular gorges and snow-capped peaks to pretty fells and valleys that extend as far as the eye can see. It’s far enough north to have a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights too, especially in December and January, and throughout the winter there are spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
