Here’s a taster of what’s coming for 2018.
In addition to our already popular Fjords of Norway guided walking tour, we’ve added a new 6-night self-guided cycling trip. You’ll explore the Oslofjord, the spectacular and picture-postcard fjord on Norway’s west coast. Very cycle-friendly, with its gentle coastline and charming routes through little towns alongside peaceful sand and pebble beaches.
Gentle exploration by bike along Scotland’s spectacular scenery and coastline.
Self-guided cycling and walking tours in Kerry and Galway, anything from a short 4-night break to a 10-night cycling tour of some of the most fascinating and breathtaking countryside the Emerald Isle has to offer. Our Kerry tours are already live on the website.
There’s something that’s simply magical about Ireland. The land, the people, the culture … and there’s no better way to see and experience the place than on foot. We offer two walking tours of Ireland that will give you the chance to experience for yourself the richness of the country and the warmth of the people.
This is the Ireland you’ve always dreamed of visiting: Wild coastline running into rugged mountain peaks, glistening bays, sweeping sandy beaches, awe-inspiring cliffs and sea foam-splashed coves. You’ll explore fishing villages that feel as though they have been preserved from another era entirely, and see ancient churches and castles. This trip even takes you through the Irish-speaking area of the Dingle Peninsula, through early Christian villages with iconic huts made of stone piled in the shape of beehives.
The walking is mostly moderate, though there will be one long ascent as you pass beneath Mount Brandon, the highest peak in the central mountain range of the Dingle Peninsula, and the site of a popular Irish Catholic pilgrimage.
This walking tour starts in the charming village of Glenbeigh, tucked among surrounding hills and the Seefin Mountains. On the Kerry Way, you’ll follow the coast on an old coach road, and catch panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Dingle Bay. You’ll enter the Foilmore Valley and the magnificent Ballinskelligs Bay.
As you continue to follow the coast, you’ll enter the Derrynane National Park, and have the opportunity to visit the Derrynane House, the ancestral home of Irish politician Daniel O’Connell—the house tours are interesting if you’re interested in Irish history, but the surrounding gardens are also beautiful to explore. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the village of Caherdaniel, and the Sneem Estuary before making its way to the shores of Kenmare Bay and the wild waters of Blackwater River before you enter Killarney National Park, where you’ll be enchanted by the ancient oak forest and close encounters with wildlife before you arrive in the beautiful and historic city of Killarney.
