Why a hardcopy brochure is an essential for your travel planning.

Welcome to the best walking, cycling, hiking holidays. We feature global brands and local operators, all carefully scrutinized for sustainable practices and responsible operations.

Things to Know

There’s 4 main types of programs:

1. Guided small group tours (less than 18 people with average of 10 and set departure dates)

2. Self guided fully serviced programs with local support (more flexible departure dates, subject to seasonal availability)

3. Lightly active small groups. Examples: a culture tour of Scotland with active days here and there, or barge tour in France with some biking day options, etc.)

4. Independent Explorers: Private label tailor made programs (any dates, self, fully or partial guided, any duration, choice of activities subject to availability. These programs are all developed according to your interests, schedule and budget. They require more time to set up as we work with you to get the best fit and use local operations to deliver the services. Learn more, here.

Other Important Details

Planning Your Own Trip? A Second Opinion Never Hurts

Planning a trip is almost as much fun as the actual travel. The anticipation, the discovery and the experience. It’s all wrapped up together. Travel is not a commodity, it’s an experience. But travel is also business and organisation and budgets and details.

Things to go right and things that go south. For this, it’s always good to have someone on your team who you can call. It’s why travel professionals are still in business after all the years of the internet. Here’s snapshot of what we do: Logisitics, Procurement, Security, Best Value. Read more on the company home page.

Deposits and Guaranteed Departures or Not

Deposits are required to secure any program. If the departure must cancel due to insufficient subscriptions, the deposits are transferable to another date or returnable. If you decide to cancel or change your dates, you may be subject to penalties, however some tours today offer lifetime deposits. With these you can cancel your tour and your deposit will be held indefinitely so you can re-book at another time. Please contact us for advice on this.

Many small group tours require a minimum number of people to make a tour operate. If they fail to get the minimum subscription number, they will ask you to change your date to a departure that is guaranteed to operate. Some tours only require a minimum of two. These tours use a lot of public transportation or require little transportation at all. You will be with other people than your group. They are less private but can be fun to be with locals.

Self guided and tailor made are always guaranteed to operate subject to availability and local conditions. Please inquire directly with us.

Ages

Some programs explicitly cater to certain age groups. Others leave it up to you to decide. Self guided and tailor made programs do not cater to any particular age group. Please contact us to get advice on this.

Solo Travellers

Many walking, cycling, hiking holidays automatically room same sex singles together so there’s no single supplement. Some may not offer private single rooms at all. Please inquire on this.

Some tours, usually lightly active style, provide single rooms at no extra cost. These are fully dedicated solo only groups. Please contact us directly on these specialty programs.

Self guided and tailor made programs can be operated with a single person. There is no brochure so please contact us for advice on this.
