Winter Blues Got You Down?

Many people think about vacationing during the summer or spring, but the winter months in the U.S. are actually some of the best times to travel abroad. Many areas of the world are quite sunny and balmy right now and can make for a great escape from the snow, sleet and ice much of the country is experiencing.

We’ve got a host of walking and cycling tours to choose from this winter that travel to destinations in Bermuda, the French Caribbean, Gozo (Malta), Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Ecuador, Kenya, Costa Rica, Chile, Galapagos, St. Lucia, the Canary Islands, Madeira, Mallorca, Menorca and Cyprus.

Some of our favorite winter tours include:

Secrets of Andalucia, Spain – This is a guided trip that is very popular. You’ll feel more like house guests than paying customers! This walking trip in sunny Spain is at our 2 boot, moderate level, which means the longest walking day is 5-6 hours.
