A walking or cycling holiday allows you to experience
beautiful places and wonderful cultures at your pace.
Am I fit enough?
When to go
What to do next
You can be fully escorted or independent,
both styles offering the comfort of a reserved bed and local cuisine. The only real decision is your destination. You could enjoy a gentle cycle through the vineyards of Burgundy in France, appreciate the loneliness of Scotland's West Highland Way or meander through an Alpine meadow as you follow the colour coded paths in the European Alps.
So get out of that tour bus or hire car and get yourself onto a bike. And for those who are a little nervous on two wheels then dust off your walking shoes. What better way to experience a country than from the saddle or on foot? At last here is a way to justify the eating and drinking while on holiday. A few hours on two wheels in France for example will neutralise the extra kilos gained by drinking that bottle of Burgundy or eating that last chunk of Paté de foie gras.
Whether you go walking with a group, by yourself or with a few friends you will return having experienced new cultures, met new friends and enjoyed one of the best holidays of your life. Not only will you return with body and soul intact but you will already be planning your next adventure.

"But I'm not fit enough" you say.
“That's just not true” we say.
Almost anyone can enjoy a walk or cycle in the countryside. Being super fit is not a pre-requisite, however being active in your every day life and having a good mental attitude will certainly help you to appreciate this kind of holiday.
When to go
Throughout the world there are various seasons and climates which means you are able to walk and cycle somewhere in the world, on some continent, and in some country at any given time of the year.
September may be the best time to walk in Scotland but it certainly isn't the best month to cycle in Sri Lanka. It may be winter in Europe but from October to April you can explore the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. A walk in Provence is very enjoyable in October but it's not the best time to cycle in Finland.
