Winter Breaks

SELF GUIDED: This Cinque Terre coastal walk takes you through a National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, discovering the coastline and the back-country: villages that cling to the cliffs, tiny beaches and coves as well as terraced fields and extensive woodlands. Cinque Terre holds five unique villages.




SELF GUIDED: Walk through a local protected area where you will encounter friendly people and have the opportunity to try traditional Portuguese food. Starting off the official Via Algarviana track in Loulé, you will then rejoin the official track in Salir. Each panoramic view is as outstanding as the last.




GUIDED: Discover the second smallest Canary Island, La Gomera on foot. Wonderful spots can be reached by following old donkey paths or steep hills, narrow tracks and pleasant forest paths. Explore the Garajonay National Park and enjoy the breathtaking views of the island and the surrounding coasts. Dates: All Year




SELF GUIDED: From the coast to the mountains, from sandy beach to shady Mediterranean forest – the diverse and changing natural landscapes of Catalonia exert a powerful attraction for walkers. This walking trail holiday has been specifically deigned to reveal many aspects of this beautiful part of Catalonia.
