4th January, 2016
Ahh, 2016, a New Year, and a fresh start... or is it? Sometimes after a festive period of sitting around eating chocolates and watching TV, we arrive back at work in front of our desks feeling like we never really left our chairs. If that's you, fear not! You're not alone. And there's also something you can do about it: get out there on a walking holiday! We were in the Yorkshire Dales to ring in 2016 and enjoyed some fabulous walks. Walking holidays really are the perfect antidote to the sedentary confines of the office. Let's blow those cobwebs away! Here are our suggestions...
1. The Welsh Coastal Path
Fresh sea-spray and a blustery ocean breeze come free of charge on the Ceredigion Coast, which makes for an excellent walking holiday destination. This area is also famed for its fabulous variety of flora and fauna, with dolphins often spotted just off the coast and a huge array of wildflowers to discover.
2. Exmoor National Park
Our brand new 'Seashores and moors' walking holiday offers the chance to explore both the unspoilt Devon coast and the wild moors of Exmoor. This is fast becoming a favourite trip amongst our team here at HQ, and there's the optional add-on of taking an Exmoor 4x4 Safari with knowledgable local guides. See local wildlife such as horses, deer and birds of prey, traverse fords and byways, and discover dramatic moor scenery and hidden valleys on this action packed adventure.
3. World heritage at Hadrian's Wall
Fancy walking Hadrian's Wall but want to stay in nice boutique hotels? Despite the sheer number of walking holiday tour operators offering this route, it's nigh on impossible to find one that avoids crabby hotels (I know, we couldn't believe it either!) So we've stepped in and designed a superb tour along what is Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument. Traverse some of Britain's most ruggedly beautiful landscape in a remarkable and dramatic walk through history. This is a coast to coast route in the North of England - so it's guaranteed to blow those cobwebs away!
