Adventure of the Week: Walking in the Picos de Europa

9 Oct , 2019  

Where is my favourite place to visit? It’s the north of Spain. Best food in the world? North of Spain. Friendliest people I have met? North of Spain. Best mountain range for walking?….. ah, the north of Spain doesn’t have any good mountain ranges. Or so I thought.  Time to add a new item to […]

Adventure of the Week: Walking in La Gomera

2 Oct , 2019  

Crowded beaches crammed with families, a sea awash with giant unicorn lilos, pasty white skin, slowly turning brown as holidaymakers drowse off their hangover in the sun.  Arid, dusty landscapes and dry, harsh volcanic landscapes. Ok, this may be a slightly over the top description of what people think of when they picture the Canary […]

The Safari Less Travelled – A Rare Find?

9 Sep , 2019  

You are heading out in the direction of Holy Isle, your last leg on the splendid St Cuthbert’s Way walk. The early morning mist rises ahead of you, slowly burning off in the hazy sun.

Adventure of the Week: Bavarian Alps: Hiking the Salt Trail

4 Sep , 2019  

Overtoursim is something that we are hearing about more and more. With the rise of Air B&B culture, there are very few Venetians left in Venice, young people in Barcelona and the Isle of Skye are struggling to stay in the place they were born because they can’t afford the house prices. Many canny holidaymakers […]
