Authentic Adventures – Walking Holidays

Whether you are an experienced hiker or someone who likes to amble rather than ramble, there is an Authentic Adventure for you.

‘Walking over lemons’ in Andalucia is where it all started for them and they are pleased to be returning to the Subbetica natural park again this year. The region is famous for its neolithic caves. Their walkers walk through steep olive groves, past vultures circling the cliffs, taking in the views of little whitewashed villages clinging to the craggy outcrops of the mountains.

Gozo, the little island off Malta with its citadel of the Knights of Malta, is a new walking destination for them, and provides a chance to spot dozens of species of migrating birds stopping off on their route. Also new for them is the picturesque Greek island of Santorini, with its myth of Atlantis. The views of whitewashed churches and sparkling blue sea will refresh the senses.

Walking in Lanzarote has been one of their surprises, the tapestry of salt pans and volcanic lava fields creating a unique landscape that is unlike anywhere else.

Italy remains one of their best loved destinations for walking in beautiful scenery with Stefano and his team of fascinating guides to explain all about the wildlife and history of his country. You will be led through the vineyards and farmsteads around the Val d’Orcia – Tuscany’s classic wine producing landscape.

For those who prefer demanding walks they have a new walking holiday in the Italian Alps at Gran Paradiso with its amazing backdrop of lakes and mountains.

The languid pace of life in Kerala in India is a delight for meandering along the canal paths and steeping through the lightly scented tea gardens is one of their more exotic adventures. A true delight, the spices and colours of Kerala will linger in the memory.

Surrounded by the undeniable rhythms of Hispanic music, cobbled streets that wind amongst the colonial buildings, palm fringed sandy beaches and lush sugar cane producing valleys, Cuba never fails to impress and amaze. On foot you can meet the real people of this outstanding island, of the tourist route and experience the real authentic Cuba.

Single travellers
Their groups are renowned for their friendliness and as a result most weeks have several single walkers. They try to keep the single supplement to a minimum.
