With 25 years experience, we have the perfect holidays designed for getting away from it all.
2013 is the year to take some time for yourself and find that really special place to explore on foot, in the company of "like minded people". From Cornwall to other enchanting places in England, Scotland, Morocco, Italy and Spain - we have the pick of Europe's most inspiring hiking and walking destinations, where you will always be in touch with nature.
Cornwall - an iconic destination made famous by her grand costal scenery and by numerous romantic writers down through the ages - such as Daphne de Maurier, Rosamunde Pilcher, John le Carre and the enchanting poet Laureate John Betjeman.
Our Cornwall and Isles of Scilly walking holidays will share with you many aspects of The Duchy's huge diversity of scenery, wildlife and history and at the same time, give you many opportunities to unwind from all the stresses of everyday life. Come and see what many claim to be the most wonderful coastline in the world - we really do know all the lovely out-of-the-way places.
Additionally, we run distinctive hiking tours in some classical landscapes in Italy: Tuscany, The Dolomites and The Amalfi Coast.
Also in stunning mountain ranges in The Picos de Europa Mountains in Northern Spain - and The Anti Atlas Mountains in South Eastern Morocco.
Wherever we walk, we bring the local countryside alive - connecting you with intriguing aspects of nature and wildlife, history, local cultures and traditions. We taste and savour the unique regional gastronomic specialities, which always form an integral part of our tours.
The health benefits of walking are so well known - a daily dose of 30 minutes is good for your heart, lungs, blood pressure and bones. Now we find out it's also good for our brain!
A study released by the University of Pittsburgh shows that walking a few miles per week can stave off Alzheimer's disease. According to the BBC, the study proves that "people who walk at least 5 miles a week have bigger brains, better memories and improved mental ability, compared to those who are more sedentary". Can you imagine what 5-10 miles per day can do for you?
Well, we can't promise you anything... other than a good time walking and talking in beautiful surroundings; learning a little about the area's natural history, culture and peoples - and indulging your taste buds with the delights of the local cuisine. Perhaps that's why our guests regularly return to join us on one or more of our walking tours. So allow us to share with you what we took a lifetime to discover.
