Save $250 on All Adventures!

This year fill your life with stories, not stuff.

Storytelling is one of the oldest and richest parts of the human experience – from ancient hieroglyphics to the memories shared over dinner with friends. The stories we tell live on forever, while the things we own get tossed away or lost over the years.

Stories are what inspire us to take on that next great adventure; whether it’s cruising down the Nile with your Egyptologist guide, cycling through the terraced rice fields of Vietnam, canoeing past elephants in Botswana or picnicking outside famous chateaux in the Loire Valley. These grand adventures turn into new stories to tell for years to come.

Breakaway wants to help you make 2019 a year full of stories not stuff, so we’re giving you $250 off all our tours to 20+ countries on 55 self-guided and 25 guided walking tours and 45+ self-guided cycling tours. Book before November 30th, 2018 to save and be sure to use the promo code Adventure2019 at the time of booking.

Our top 5 Multi-Generational tours…

Multi Generations on the French Riviera

Our top 5 Multi-Generational tours…

What better way to connect with your family or grandchildren than to pack your bags and spend time with them on an overseas adventure. You’ll create a special bond based on once in a lifetime memories and maybe start at family tradition for future generations!

Our top 5 Multi-Generational tours offer something for everyone, keeping in mind that children and teenagers might have a slightly lower attention span, these tours are packed with inspirational perspectives of the culture, atmosphere and sights and sounds of each destination; all rolled together with plenty of physical activity and time built in to “chill out” at the pool or beach.

We think that travel is the best form of education, so we’ve chosen tours that focus on the rich and varied cultured history of each region; from the prehistoric cave sites in Dordogne, to the wild, beautiful and slightly mysterious setting of Loch Ness (maybe a Nessie sighting!) and the historic castles and fairytale Barouque palaces of Salzburg, you’ll stroll or cycle through history as you discover the quintessential landscapes of Europe.

Call one of our agents for more information on these or any of our tours. We’ll be happy to help you put together the perfect trip!

France: Dordogne River Canoeing, Walking & Cycling

You’ll really feel like you’ve stepped back in time in one of the most fascinating corners of the Dordogne. This varied and flexible tour offers three activities in one tour; two days canoeing with a choice of walking or cycling for the remaining days.This is a region of spectacular scenery with ancient chateaux perched high above the rugged cliffs as well as home to troglodyte cave dwellings (Grottes de Lacave and Gouffre de Padirac), picturesque Rocamadour and the fascinating medieval village of Sarlat.

Italy: Volterra to San Gimignano Walk

You’ll explore the timeliess countryside of Chianti on this 8 night walking holiday. Starting in Volterra, home to alabaster workshops and secret chapels (plan to visit the fascinating Etruscan museum) you’ll continue to medieval Colle di Val d’Elsa with stunning views across the Elsa Valley. Then it’s on to San Gimignano, whose mystical towers were built by warring neighbors in the C12 to out do one another!l  The eternal art cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa are a only a short hop away.

Spain: Catalan Classic Walk

Catalunya is steeped in culture with its traditions and festivals dating back over thousands of years. You’ll stay in a fabulous mix of hotels including 2 nights in a magnificently restored C14 castle. Along the way you’ll find fantastic beaches for a swim and sleepy fishing villages where you can enjoy Spanish tapas lunches in beachfront cafes. A visit to the quirky Dali Museum in Figueres is a must, as are stopover nights in cosmopolitan Barcelona before or after the tour.

Scotland: Loch Ness and the Highlands Cycling

A sparkling jewel in Scotland’s wild, unpolished North, the Highlands around Loch Ness are a place of undisputed natural beauty. Shrouded in mystery and legend, the atmosphere here will envelop you like a blanket of the finest tartan. Long-silent battlefields, fortified garrisons and magical castles all await amongst the rich bird and wildlife, diverse flora and fauna and perhaps, even the occasional dolphin sighting!

Take me to there

Austria: Austrian Lakes Cycling

Our popular cycling tour in the Austrian Lakes is fantastically varied with something to suit travelers of all ages. Every stop brings you to new discoveries such as St Wolfgang’s antique cog railway to the summit of Schafberg, Mozart’s museum in St Gilgen, and Mondsee’s frescoed high street; the church here was the location of the famous wedding in The Sound of Music!  Lots of rest day choices including boat trips, watersports and mountain trail rides, make this tour a great choice for teenagers and children.
