New Year, New Experiences!

January 3rd, 2017 by

You’ve welcomed in the New Year and we’re pleased to introduce some exciting new walking tours in Bavaria, Catalunya, Norway, Romania and Spain.

It’s a new year; a fresh start. Right now the world’s your oyster, so how about broadening your mind, getting out of your comfort zone and visiting somewhere new in 2017? It’s cold and it’s a great time to plan ahead for a fanastic year…


NEW:
Bavaria

The Bavarian Rivers and Valleys Walk takes you on a stunning journey, following the well-marked Jurasteig path through the rich Bavarian countryside, covering riverside paths, flowering meadows, and pine-scented forests. On this eight-night holiday you’ll stop at pretty towns and villages, admire beautiful castles and onion-domed church towers and get amongst the fascinating flora and fauna.

 

NEW: Catalunya

On the Coast and Mountains of Catalunya Walk we’ll guide you to a tiny region of Catalunya set around the magnificent Ebre river – the Terres de l’Ebre. We’ll explore high mountain peaks, stunning coastal paths and the Ebro Delta, one of Europe’s most important wetlands. Walking around Els Ports National Park we’ll admire majestic birds of prey and iconic sights, including impressive rock formations of Carrer Ample creek.

 

NEW: Camino de Santiago

The vast expansion of humble Roman roads connecting France and Spain, which has over time fanned out across Iberia and western Europe, is one of the most unmissable long distance ancient pilgrim trails in the world. On the seven-night Highlights of the Camino de Santiago Walk you’ll meet people from all over the world and walk along farm tracks and country lanes and through vineyards, stopping off at churches to admire the frescoes and tavernas for lunch en route.

NEW: Romania

The fabled, mountainous region of Transylvania has become synonymous with Bram Stoker’s Dracula, but on this wonderful seven-night Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains holiday we’ll leave fiction behind to uncover a beautiful country with a rich and fascinating history. We’ll guide you to medieval castles and high mountain peaks, through ancient forests, rocky canyons and stunning wildflower-covered pastures and visit famous historical sights.

On the eight-night Fjords of Norway Guided Walk we’ll show you the sights of astounding natural beauty in Western Norway’s Sunnmore region. Gaze at towering rock formations and thundering waterfalls, walk amongst the breathtaking shimmering fjords and glacial valleys – including Europe’s largest glacier – and relax in some exquisite hotels with awe-inspiring views.
