Walking Holidays Collection

2018 to March 2019


2018 is the 15th successful year of our Walking Holidays

Collection. Since our first brochure appeared back in 2004, we

have expanded both the choice of destinations and the different

styles of holiday we offer. But one thing has not changed - you’ll

always find on our walking holidays a great balance – with the

‘holiday’ part just as important as the walking. Thousands of

walkers have enjoyed our unique formula and return year after

year – hundreds have travelled with us more than five times and

many well over ten times. Here are some of the reasons we are

lucky enough to have so many repeat bookings -

• Direct flights from airports right across the UK, in most cases

without regional flight supplements

• Half-board included nearly everywhere

• One piece of checked baggage per person always included

(minimum 20kgs in 2018)

• Local walking guides who live where they walk and who

achieved 95% customer satisfaction ratings in 2017!

• A rich variety of single-centre and multi-centre holidays

mountains and coast, lakes and cities, culture and history - in

9 countries

• All our holidays are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority

Index

We are sure you will find something that will appeal to you in

this collection. If you do – give us a call on 0116 279 3929 –

we think you will find this a different experience. No hanging

around listening to a series of options, no ‘please wait for the

next available operator’ – a real person will answer you straight

away! And we guarantee that the price of your holiday will not

change after we have confirmed your booking.

Our customers tell us that flying from your local airport is a major

advantage, avoiding the hassle and expense of travelling to one

of the major hubs – we feature over 20 departure airports.

All our holidays have that little extra ingredient which makes

the difference and we are sure you will find something that will

appeal to you. If you do – give us a call on 0116 279 3929 – this

will also be a different experience. No hanging around listening to

a series of options, no ‘please wait for the next available operator’

– a real person will answer you straight away!

We also offer Escorted Holidays throughout Europe, some of

which operate in parallel with walking holidays in this brochure.

If you would like details of these and other escorted holidays call

Andalucia’s Eastern Coast

Glorious hills and mountains, pretty beaches and coves, the azure waters of the southern Mediterranean and a wonderful

sub-tropical climate – what else do you need for a walking holiday in the sunshine? Andalucia’s eastern coast (known

as the Costa Tropical) is all this. Your base is the coastal city of Almunecar where the sierras plunge spectacularly into

the sea and you will find no less than 25 beaches and coves within the boundary of the municipality. It is a city whose

Phoenician, Roman and Moorish past is still much in evidence. Granada is only 45 miles away and you have an included

visit to the last city to be surrendered by the Moors in 1492.

• 7 nights hb in Almuñecar, on the Costa Tropical • 2 coastal walks • Mountain walk near white-painted Frigiliana

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Malaga and transfer to your hotel (55 miles) in

Almunecar on the beach east of the city for seven nights half board

accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: During your stay there are three included walks.

Walk 1: Short 5-minute transfer to the start of your walk east along

the coast. You walk via gorges, cliff and coastal paths along beaches

and coves, passing ancient watch towers, and with excellent views as

you go. Your destination is the old town of Salobrena, where there is

an Arab Fortress and from where you catch the local bus back to the

hotel. 6 miles, 120m of ascent and descent.

Walk 2: 10-mile coach trip west to your start point at Playa Canuelo,

from where you walk along the old coastal route to La Herradura –

5 miles so far, 230m of ascent/descent. After a stop for lunch at La

Herradura, either catch the local bus back to Almunecar, or continue

walking over the headland to Cotobro and Almunecar – a further 5

miles, 100m ascent/descent. From Almunecar centre, take the local

bus or continue along the promenade to the hotel.

Walk 3: Today you have a coach transfer to Frigiliana, 16 miles away, for

your circular walk in the hills behind this pretty white-painted village.

The undulating route takes you to the Cross on Captain Pinto’s Hill (the

good captain built a cross to give thanks for surviving a horrendous

storm at sea). You return via the little village of La Molineta, where

we make a refreshment stop, and then return to Frigiliana. 9 miles,

600m of ascent and descent. There may be the opportunity to include

a section of river walk, weather permitting.

There are opportunities for self-guided walks from Almunecar – our

representative will be pleased to advise. There is also an included

full-day excursion to the wonderful city of Granada. There is surely no

more spectacular setting than Granada whose extraordinary Alhambra

complex is dominated by the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra

Nevada. A local guide will ensure you make the most of your visit of

the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens. (Please note that, due to

restrictions on group visits, the Nasrid Palaces part of the complex

may not be included in the visit.) As well as visiting the complex, you

will also have plenty of time to see some of the city’s other attractions

such as the cathedral and the old Moorish quarter of Albaicin, now

a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Alhambra and the

Generalife.

The rest of your time is free to enjoy Almunecar. You can visit the Arab

fortress built on top of a Roman castle or stroll through the delightful

botanical gardens of Majuelo Park where there is a huge collection

of tropical and subtropical plants, bushes and trees as well as the

remains of the Roman fish-salting pits. Other attractions include the

exotic bird park and the network of defensive towers built by the Moors

and later strengthened in the 18th century as defence against British

raids. Or just stroll through the busy commercial district in the old

centre where you can admire the city’s monuments – look out for the

plaque dedicated to Laurie Lee who spent time here during and after

the Civil War.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport and your return

flight home.

YOUR HOTEL

HOTEL BAHIA TROPICAL HHHH, Taramay, Almunecar (seven nights)

The hotel is situated on the small Pozuelo beach in Taramay on the eastern

edge of Almunecar, 3 km from the city centre. There is a frequent, cheap

bus service to town if you do not want to take the extremely pleasant

walk along the seafront. Its spacious rooms all have bath and wc, minibar,

satellite tv, safe (chargeable) and hairdryer - most have balcony or

terrace. The restaurant serves buffet style food and there is a bar with

entertainment on most nights. The hotel has a large outdoor pool and a

spa. One entrance to the spa is included during your stay (one hour use to

include active pool with water massages, sauna, Turkish bath, pediluvium

and sensation shower). Health and body treatments are also available at

extra cost. (www.hotelbahiatropical.es)

Extend your holiday – extra week available in Taramay.

If you have friends who are not walkers interested in this itinerary, it is

The Sierra de Mijas

We always try to combine great walking with interesting holiday destinations which are well worth a visit in their own

right and Mijas ticks all the boxes. Roman, Visigothic and later Moorish, the white painted centre of Mijas Pueblo still has

the look of an old Andalucian village, set amid the impressive landscapes of the Sierra, which are rich in vegetation: only

a quarter of an hour’s drive from the commercial excesses of the coast, but light years away in atmosphere. The marble

and limestone Sierra de Mijas is crossed with mountain valleys and has a variety of well-maintained paths and routes of

varying difficulty.

• 7 nights hb in white-painted Mijas • Cable car ride • 3 included walking excursions

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Malaga, transfer to Mijas (30 minutes) and your

hotel for seven nights half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: At leisure in Mijas, with three included walking

excursions. A fourth, optional walking excursion will also be available.

Walk 1: Mijas and the Sierra. 5 miles, 400m of ascent/descent. Your first

walk starts and finishes at the hotel: the first section will introduce you

to Mijas itself, with its narrow alleys, broad squares, and ‘Camino del

Calvario’, a pilgrims’ path of the Way of the Cross up to the Hermitage

(built in 1710 as a refuge for Carmelite monks), on the side of the

Sierra from where there are superb views over the coast. Your route

goes to the Mission Cross and through an abandoned marble quarry.

The landscape varies as you go, offering firstly herbs and lavender, and

then eucalyptus and pines. You re-enter Mijas, and head through the

town towards the hotel: perhaps stopping for refreshment first!

Walk 2: The North side of the Sierra, near Alhaurin el Grande. Short

(20 minutes) transfer around the edge of the Sierra. This walk involves

beautiful glens and stunning vistas. The full walk is 7 miles, 675m

of ascent/descent, with some steep sections, but an easier version

encompassing part of the route will also be available.

could spend a day at the seaside in nearby Fuengirola. A fourth walk

on an optional excursion to historic Antequera and the astonishing

limestone formations of El Torcal may also be available. There may

also be another optional excursion to the historic city of Cordoba with a

tour of the world-famous Mezquita – a mosque with a cathedral inside!

Day Eight: Free time until departure for Malaga airport.

YOUR HOTEL

HOTEL TRH HHHH, Mijas. (seven nights)

This hotel enjoys an excellent location close to town (5 minutes walk

away), but set amid palms and pines in the rolling landscapes of the

Sierra as well. Built in Andalucian style, the hotel has a bar, buffet

restaurant, outdoor pool and spacious gardens and terraces. Rooms

have bath/shower, wc, satellite TV, direct dial phone, safety deposit box,

internet connection and hairdryer. Superior rooms are available at a

supplement. (www.trhhoteles.com)

Extend your holiday – extra week available in Mijas.

If you have friends who are not walkers interested in this itinerary, it is

featured in our Escorted Holidays brochure with a touring programme.

Walk 3: Calamorro and the old path to Mijas. 5 miles, 500m ascent

(descent by cable car). 20-minute transfer to start your walk near

Benalmadena Pueblo, a pretty town in the hills as opposed to the

sprawling resort of Benalmadena Costa below. The trail follows a ridge

– on a clear day you can see Gibraltar and Africa! Your destination is

Calamorro, from where the cable car whisks you 3km back down the

mountain to ‘civilisation’!

There is plenty to do in your free time. As well as a very pretty old centre

where it is a pleasure to stroll and relax, Mijas has a folk museum and

a newly-opened Contemporary Arts Centre. The prime focus of the

museum is Picasso’s ceramic works of which 41 are on display as well

as some of his paintings and others by Dali and Miro. Picasso was born

just down the road in Malaga which also has a fine museum displaying

his paintings. Malaga is easily accessible on public transport. Or you

The Costa Blanca Mountains

Inland from the resorts of the Costa Blanca lies some of the best walking country in Spain. The sparsely populated

mountains rise up to 3000ft and are a haven for wildlife including wild cats and genets, badgers and weasels and even

golden eagles. Well maintained tracks along the rocky peaks and through lush valleys link traditional villages where the

old Valencian lifestyle still prevails. Your holiday base in Calpe has a bit of everything – beautiful beaches, a lively and

picturesque old town, stunning scenery in the shape of the immense Rock of Ifach and varied wildlife, both on the Rock

and on the saltpans.

• 7 nights hb in Calpe • 3 walks amid the mountainous hinterland • Optional excursion to Valencia

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Alicante. Transfer to your hotel for seven nights half

board accommodation. Transfer time one hour, depending on traffic.

Days two to seven: At leisure in Calpe with three included guided

walks.

Walk 1: You will have a short coach transfer for the first included walk on

the unspoilt Serra d’Oltà hills. You follow a circular route around the peak,

mainly along good forestry tracks, with moderate ascents of approx 220m

and just one short section of stony footpath. The route affords good views

of the coast and surrounding mountains as it passes through pinewoods

and moorland. You will make a stop at St Francis’ hermitage. The walk is

approx 5 miles. On the return the coach detours to pass the salt flats and

the Rock of Ifach. If you wish you can alight there, take lunch, have a walk

on Ifach. A marked trail through and around the Rock will take about 2 ½

hours to complete.

Walk 2: 30-mile coach transfer to Famorca. Following the old road

downhill through Famorca and another small village, you have the chance

to explore the caves at La Cova. These caves have been in continuous use

since the Palaeolithic period, most recently as a refuge for the villagers’

sheep and goats. The route ascends along an ancient footpath until

Castell de Castells comes into view. Passing two freshwater springs, and

an ancient gypsum mill and kilns, there is the option of a short ascent

to see some 1000 year old, but still productive, olive trees. Approaching

Castell de Castells, you cross the medieval irrigation viaduct. Originally

built by the Moors it is still in use today. 7 miles with ascents of 350m and

descents of 600m.

Walk 3: 50-minute coach transfer to the start of the walk which will

explore the Jalon Valley, famous for its vineyards, fine wines and the

typical sweet white Mistela. The route starts from the summit of the

Coll de Rates from where you have panoramic views of the surrounding

mountains and the Tárbena Valley, the Sierra de Ferrer and the Jalon Valley

with its whitewashed villages, vineyards and citrus groves set out in neat

rows. The route descends from the Coll de Rates along the old Royal Road

that takes you down into the Jalon Valley. This footpath was the principal

connection between the provincial capitals of Valencia and Alicante up

until the early 20th century. You then follow an easy footpath through

pinewoods along the southern flanks with views of the valley below. In

Jalon, you can visit one of the wine Bodegas. To finish the walk, you can

either continue to the town square and the church with its characteristic

blue-tiled and domed roof, or stop for refreshments in one of the local

bars. 6 miles with ascents of 80m and descents of 525m.

As well as the Rock of Ifach trail in Calpe, there is an eco-trail at the base

of Ifach and two ‘Voramar’ paths in Calpe along the water’s edge to Arenal-

Bol beach and the marina of Les Bassetes. There will also be an optional

full day excursion to the city of Valencia.

DAY EIGHT: Free time until departure for the airport and your flight home.

YOUR HOTEL

DIAMANTE BEACH HOTEL HHHH, Calpe (seven nights)

The hotel is located just a few metres from the Levante Beach promenade.

The hotel’s modern style is characterised by its spectacular glass façade.

Mallorca

Majorca is not all beaches and tacky tourist outlets. As you go to the north–eastern side of the island, Majorca undergoes a

remarkable transformation; changing from high-rise apartment blocks and hotels to the calmer shores around Cala Ratjada,

where your hotel is located. You are now firmly in Mallorca, with its Hispanic spelling and atmosphere, rather than in the land of

its Anglo-Saxon translation! You have the chance to explore the real Mallorca from your base at the Hotel Bella Playa, just a few

metres from the stunning beach of Cala Agulla.

• 7 nights hb in Cala Ratjada, North-East Mallorca • 3 included walks • Walk directly from the hotel

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Palma. On arrival you will be met at the airport and

transferred to your hotel, the Bella Playa, for seven nights half board

accommodation. Transfer time 50 minutes.

Days Two to Seven: There are three walks arranged especially

for Preferred Travel Services Customers (details below). In addition,

the hotel has its own programme of outings (daily except Sunday),

including our featured walks and other additional activities such as a

bike ride to Arta (bike hire approx £9).

Walk 1: Cala Ratjada introductory walk. You will head into the dunes

of Cala Agulla, and then go around the peninsula of Cala Ratjada, via

Cala Lliteras before arriving at the lighthouse, located at an altitude of

70m, and from where you can see the neighbouring island of Menorca.

Then you follow the coast down to beautiful Cala Gat and on to Cala

Ratjada port. The distance to here is 6 miles: the walk will finish at the

port and our experience is that almost all customers will indeed be

happy to finish there. However, your walking guides will assist anyone

who wishes to extend the walk, by continuing in the direction of Font

de Sa Cala, a further 2 miles each way.

Walk 2: The mountains of S’heretat and Sa Cove Negre hill. You head

first along the coast to Na Taconera, and then cross the hills and take

a stony path up to 230m in altitude, before descending to Capdepera,

where there is the chance to visit the castle. 7 miles approx.

Walk 3: You head through the pine forest and cross the Es Munt Gros

dunes, before going along the coast to the Punta des Boc (80m high).

You will return along a cobbled path passing through Cala Molto and

Cala Agulla. This walk is 11 miles long. A shorter version may also be

available. Nearby is the ascent to the Son Jaumell watchtower, 270m

up – you may wish to return this way on a free day and do the climb.

From Cala Ratjada there are bus services to Palma and other places on

the island. Near Canyamel can be found the Arta Caves, full of amazing

rock formations such as the ‘Queen of Pillars’. The caves were a place

of refuge for 2,000 Arabs in 1229 when hiding from King Jaume I when

the Christians conquered Mallorca.

Day Eight: Free time until your departure transfer to the airport for

your flight home.

YOUR HOTEL

HOTEL BELLA PLAYA HHHH, Cala Ratjada. (seven nights)

The hotel, on the edge of the resort, adjoins the Levante Natural Park area.

All walks, therefore, start directly from the hotel. The hotel offers plenty of

sporting activities (tennis courts, swimming pool, gymnasium and discounts

for the nearby golf course among others) as well as well-furnished rooms

(satellite tv, telephone and full bathroom). Prices are based on standard

rooms. Superior rooms are available at a supplement. The hotel has

an outdoor pool and a wellness centre with sauna, 2 Turkish baths and

relaxation room – free of charge for hotel guests - and free wifi access on

the Terrace Bar and in Reception. There is a buffet meal each night with a

huge selection of food, including local specialities (www. bellaplaya.com).

Catalonia

Mainly known in the UK for the beaches of the Costa Brava and Dorada, Catalonia is a region with an incredibly rich variety

of landscapes. Close to the coast, the rolling highlands offer lovely views towards the sea and inland towards the heights

of the Sierras, which are rich in wildlife and flora.

Your walks feature both landscapes, as well as the character-filled villages of the interior.

Your base is Coma-Ruga, a pleasantly unspoilt resort with an excellent beach in the quieter Penedes area of the ‘Golden

Coast’, the Costa Dorada, between Barcelona and Tarragona. There is an excellent, reasonably priced rail service to both

cities. Apart from the wine-producing counties of the Penedes, you also walk in the adjacent Alt Camp, the ‘High Country’.

• 7 nights hb close to the beach • 3 included walking excursions: coast, hills & wine area • No single supplement

on certain dates

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Reus or Barcelona. Transfer to your hotel, just under

an hour away. Seven nights half board accommodation is reserved for

you.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included walking excursions:

Walk 1: Coastal Walk from La Mora to Torredembarra. After a short coach

transfer you start your walk near the medieval Mora watchtower. You

cross the beach and the headland before reaching Tamarit and its castle.

You head along the beach and then a short way inland, up the river, to

explore the ‘witches’ village’ of Altafulla. The coastal area, the story goes,

was plagued by pirates and smugglers: the word was put out that the

upper part of the village was populated by witches, so as to discourage

attack! You return to the wide beach and climb onto the headland to reach

‘Els Munts’, an impressive Roman villa (the word means a farmstead).

Nearby there are other, rather less impressive, holiday ‘villas’. You

descend into Torredembarra – the town has a pleasant old quarter and

beach. Total so far 6 miles, 80m of climb/descent. Nearby is a dune area,

a haven for birds and of ecological importance: you will have time to

explore it if you wish. You return to the hotel by train.

Walk 2: The Foix Natural Park and Modernist l’Arboç. Short coach

transfer (20 minutes) to the entry to the Foix Natural Park Area. You start

this country walk near Penyafort Castle. Your route takes you along lanes

and paths close to vineyards, with views of the Sierra del Montmell. The

route undulates gently amid rich vegetation, approaching Castellet, with

its impressive lakeside castle – now home to a UNESCO International

Biosphere Research Centre. There are fine views over the reservoir

– watch out for cormorants and other birdlife. After a stop, you then

follow lanes to l’Arboç village, home to a lacemaking tradition, and with

impressive modernist buildings, its ‘Indian Houses’ and Giralda Tower – a

copy of the one in Seville. 6.9 miles, 100m ascent/descent.

Walk 3: Villages of the Alt Camp & the Cistercian Route. After a 40-minute

coach transfer to the start of the walk in the village of Cabra del Camp, you

follow the long-distance GR7 path for 2.3 miles, gradually gaining 175m

in altitude. You then join the ‘Cistercian Route’, the long distance GR175

path linking the three great Catalan Monasteries. There are great views

as you descend gently towards Pont d’Armentera (300m over approx. 4

miles), where you have a break for lunch. The last section of the walk to

the Santes Creus Monastery follows a broad track overlooking the Gaia

valley – 4 miles, 70m climb. (The total distance is just over 10 miles, but

there is a possible break point after 7 miles at Pont d’Armentera from

where you can take a bus or taxi to Santes Creus). Time permitting, you

will be able to visit the monastery (entrance fee approx. 3.50 euros).

From Santes Creus you transfer back to your hotel, with an en-route

photo stop at the unusual modernist Sanctuary at Montferri.

Day Eight: Free time until your departure to the airport for your flight

home.

YOUR HOTEL

NUBAHOTEL HHHH, Coma-Ruga (seven nights)

The hotel stands close to the broad sandy beach. This unspoilt resort is

quiet out of season, rather busier at weekends from June to September

when there is an entertainment programme in the hotel, with music on

Saturday evenings. A reasonable selection of shops, bars and restaurants

is about 10 minutes walk (700m) away, and the railway station with halfhourly

departures to Barcelona is about 15 minutes walk. There is also

a local bus service to the nearby county town of El Vendrell, birthplace

of Pablo Casals: his villa, now an interesting museum, is within walking

distance of the hotel. The hotel has a spa centre (a reasonable extra charge

applies), restaurant, bar, lounge, and outdoor pool. Rooms, which all have

balcony, also have 2 queen size beds, bathroom with hairdryer, phone,

air-conditioning/heating, satellite LCD tv, and safety deposit box (charge

applies). Free wifi in public areas. (www.nubahotelcomarruga.com)

Catalonia - Trails & Rails

We have featured ‘Walking in Catalonia’ for a few years now. As our hotel is situated just 15 minutes walk from the local railway

station it gives us the opportunity to explore further this part of Catalonia. The local station is on the main line between Barcelona and

Tarragona and the journey to either (which you can do in your spare time) is very pleasant as the train hugs the coastline. But there

are also a few local lines which pass through unspoilt Catalan countryside, where pretty villages huddle around their church and wine

cellar, unchanged by time. Between them roll hills of olives and vines, interrupted by occasional rocky crags or coves, and seemingly

randomly-positioned railway halts. Recalling the days when the trains on these lesser-used lines were of great import to the country

and its government, each off-the-beaten-track station seems to be home to an enormous traffic office (now often derelict) where,

presumably, teams of civil servants supervised the running of the railway! One line goes west and inland into the Priorat, an area famed

for its wine as much as its beautiful countryside. The other line goes north to Montblanc at the foot of the Prades mountain range.

• 7 nights hb in Catalonia • 3 included walking excursions: coast, hills, countryside • Travel to and from walks

mainly by train

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Barcelona or Reus. Transfer to your hotel just under

an hour away for seven nights half board hotel accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included Trails & Rails

walks. Please note: we will pre-purchase train tickets, but occasionally

trains can be quite busy for the first 2 or 3 stops.

Please note: All three walks have sections which are more

difficult than other walks in this brochure, paths being steep,

narrow and rocky in places, particularly following erosion. On all

three walks there is an easier option, but even this on Walk 3 is

tricky in places.

Walk 1: The Cistercian Route from l’Espluga de Francoli to medieval

Montblanc. Coach transfer to l’Espluga de Francoli (45 minutes).

After walking through this old wine village you walk gradually uphill

towards the sanctuary of the Trinity (coffee stop). You continue through

a forested area, on a broad path before reaching St John’s Hermitage

and then descending towards the town of Montblanc. 6 miles, 250m

of ascent/descent. The easier option (4.5 miles, 70m ascent/descent)

misses out the Hermitage and avoids a climb and a steep descent,

allowing extra time in Montblanc instead.

Montblanc is a little jewel: a completely unspoilt medieval town with

fine ramparts, shady streets and impressive churches and squares –

especially the Placa Major, the Main Square. This is the town where St

George supposedly fought against the dragon, to save the princess!

From Montblanc you catch the train back to the coast.

Walk 2: Priorat. You catch the 0948 train to the little village station

at Marça, amid the DOC Montsant wine district, and in the county

of Priorat, arriving at 1101. The line is spectacular, especially after

it emerges from the Argentera tunnel (completed in 1890). Marça

is where the International Brigades (including the British Battalion)

massed in preparation for the disastrous Battle of Ebro in 1938.

The walk is circular, but the landscapes on the outward section –

vineyards and olive groves with a spectacular craggy backdrop – are

very different to the second part where, after passing Capçanes, you

go through a wood and climb through a rocky gully part of the way.

8 miles, 160m of ascent/ descent. The easier option (5 miles) ends in

Capçanes with a coach transfer back to Marça. You return to the coast

by coach (one hour).

Walk 3: The Coastal Path: l’Ametlla de Mar to l’Ampolla. You take the

0848 train south down the coast to l’Ametlla de Mar – journey time one

hour. On this walk you will discover the natural beauty of this protected

part of the coast. You will follow in the footsteps of patrolmen who, in

centuries gone by, used the pathways to look out for invaders, pirates

or smugglers. The route crosses coves and beaches: much is totally

unspoilt, though in some places you will marvel at the depredations

not of pirates, but of Spanish planning – or, rather, the apparent lack

of it! The whole walk to l’Ampolla is just under 11 miles with ascent/

descent of 170m. The easier option ends after 7 miles at Playa de

l’Aliga, with an onward coach transfer to l’Ampolla. Return to Coma-

Ruga is by train from l’Ampolla.

Day Eight: Transfer to the airport for your flight home.

The Valleys of Roussillon

This holiday offers excellent walking in the hills of the Roussillon area of southwest France, sometimes called French

Catalonia – it only became French in the 17th century. There is a great affinity between the ‘French’ and ‘Spanish’

Catalans, and your holiday includes a stay in both French and Spanish Catalonia. Also included in the holiday is a visit to

Dali’s eccentric theatre-museum in Figueras - a mind-expanding sort of place! – and some time in the wonderful city of

Barcelona. In short, this is a unique opportunity to walk in, and discover, one of the most fascinating parts of Europe and

to enjoy the sunshine of the Mediterranean at the same time!

• 3 nights hb on the Catalan Coast, 4 hb in the French hills • Entrances to Dali Theatre-Museum, Figueres, and

to the fort in Prats de Mollo • 3 guided walks: coast, mountain, valley • Visit to Barcelona

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Reus or Barcelona. On arrival transfer to your coastal

hotel for two nights half board accommodation. Transfer time 50 minutes.

Day Two: Optional half-day excursion to the Roman city of Tarragona

where you can see the amphitheatre, port and beach and stroll through

the medieval centre. Under the Romans, Tarragona was the capital of

the Province of Northern Spain and home to the Emperor Augustus – a

Temple in his honour stood on the site of the current Cathedral.

Day Three: Today you depart for France. En route you make a stop in

Dali’s home town of Figueras, close to the French border, and home to his

surreal (in the truest sense!) theatre-museum (entrance included). The

Dali Museum is one of the most-visited museums in Spain…and with

its luminous-egg façade, it is not just the interior that seems to want to

stretch your mind! From there it is just an hour to your hotel in Amélieles-Bains,

in the spectacular Vallespir valley, where you have four nights

half board accommodation.

Days Four to Six: In Amélie with three included walks.

Walk 1: The Tech Valley and Arles. You head inland, taking a path which

rises gently behind Arles-sur-Tech, whose narrow streets cluster around

its 8th-century abbey. You will have time to explore here before returning

to Amelie along the river. 5.3 miles, 105m of ascent/descent.

Walk 2: The High Vallespir. You travel 40 minutes further up the Vallespir

Valley to the fortified village of Prats de Mollo. A little further on lies the

Spanish border at Col d’Ares, where you start your 3-hour walk on the

‘Cami de la Retirada’ – the Refugees’ Way that many followed out of

Spain during the Civil War. You will also walk up to Vauban’s impressive

Fort Lagarde, and take in the village church with its impressive altarpiece.

Prats de Mollo stands on the side of the impressive Mount Canigou, snowcapped

for much of the year, and with forests and mountain meadows

abounding. 4.5 miles, 800m descent with 100m ascent/descent to the

fort.

Walk 3: The Vermilion Coast. You travel 45 minutes to the coast at Banyuls

sur Mer, for a four - hour coastal walk following the ‘Customs Agent’s

Path’. You make a stop in Port Vendres - home to Rennie Mackintosh for

many years, before continuing to the artists’ resort of Collioure, a port

since Roman times. The spectacular Chateau-Royal is worth a visit, and

reproductions of works by artists who painted in Collioure (Matisse and

Derain in particular) will be found on the quaysides. 6 miles, 300m of

ascent/descent.

Day Seven: Today you journey back south to the Costa Dorada for the

last night of your holiday, which is again on a half board basis. En route

a stop will be made in the exciting city of Barcelona, capital of Catalonia.

Ramble(!) down the Rambla and you will find pavement artists and

buskers, stalls selling all kinds of bric-a-brac - an avenue bursting with

life and colour. Or you can visit the weird and wonderful cathedral of the

Sagrada Familia - Gaudi’s masterpiece.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport for your return

flight.

Menorca

The island of Menorca may be just 30 miles long and 10 miles across, but it hosts a world of contrasts. The north is comparatively

lush and green, with extensive bays and long headlands. The south is much rockier and riddled with caves. At the eastern end

lies the island’s capital Mahon, a historic city well worth exploring, whose fine deep-water harbour led to British and French

occupation in the 18th century (in 1756 the British Admiral Byng was court-martialled and shot for losing it to the French ‘pour

encourager les autres’!). To the west lies Ciutadella, a former island capital, again with impressive city walls and harbour, but

much quieter than the capital. But it is the island’s unspoilt beaches and coves that may impress you most of all: our resort

area of Son Bou is home to one of the best of them. Menorca was designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in October 1993.

• 7 nights hb in Son Bou • 3 included fully-guided walks with an expert guide

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Menorca, transfer to your hotel, half an hour away.

Seven nights half board accommodation is reserved for you.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included walking excursions:

Walk 1: The South. This is a circular walk from the hotel, passing

through Son Bute Valley. You then go through the Ravine of Binigaus,

passing the Coloms Cave, and walking along the coast back to Son Bou.

Total 10.7 miles, ascent/descents 200m.

Walk 2: The North. After a 30-minute coach transfer to the Cape of

Cavalleria, the island’s most northerly point, you walk along the coast in

the direction of Cala Pregonda, famed for its red and yellow rocks. After

your walk, you return by coach, visiting ‘El Toro’, Menorca’s 358m-high

‘mountain’ to take in the view. 5 miles, 100m of ascent/descent.

Walk 3: The East. You transfer to the Cape of Favaritx, with its black

rocks, and follow a path by the s’Albufera lagoon to the fishing village of

Es Garau. 8 miles, 100m of ascent/descent.

A fourth, optional, walk along the south-east coast, via the beaches of

Cala Turquesa and Cala Macarella, to Cala Galdana, will be available,

and there is public transport to both Mahon and Ciutadella close at hand.

Day Eight: Free time until your departure transfer to the airport for your

flight home.

Walking & Birdwatching

8 days from £749 May

We know that our walking holiday customers not only enjoy the

scenery, culture and history of the places we visit, but also have

more than a passing interest in the fauna of the area. This holiday

to Menorca and the holidays to Portugal and to the Camargue on

the following two pages include three excellent walks with first-rate

birdwatching opportunities. This is not high end, specialist twitching

and there is no need to buy expensive equipment; your regular

binoculars will be ok. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be short-changed

in terms of avine content! Our walking guides are also expert birders

who are able at once to cater to all levels of experience – from the

complete beginner to the accomplished ornithologist.

PROGRAMME

Walk 1: This walk leaves from the hotel, visiting the marshy area near

Son Bou and the Son Boter Ravine. Expected sightings include the

distinctively crowned Hoopoe, the Purple Heron, Purple Swamphen, the

Booted Eagle and the endangered Egyptian Vulture, also known as the

‘Pharaoh’s Chicken’. 5.1 miles, ascent/descent 85m.

Walk 2: Transfer to Son Parc beach, on the north of the island, crossing

through wetlands of Son Saura, heading towards the salt marshes/mines

of Fornells, where you will stop at a farm for a short while to observe

the birdlife. You then continue to the Concepción Salines to meet your

transport. Expected sightings today include the fastest member of the

animal kingdom, the Peregrine Falcon, the Osprey, the Black-winged

Stilt and the Kentish Plover. 4.2 miles, ascent/descent 50m. On the

return journey we make short stops at the Bee-eater colony near Lluriac,

and take in the fabulous views from ‘El Toro’, Menorca’s highest point

(over 1100ft above sea level).

Walk 3: Transfer to Algaraiens, in the west of the island, from where

you walk via Pla de Mar to Cala del Pilar, to see the wide variety of

birds found in the agricultural interior of Menorca – though our varied

route also includes a forest of holm oaks as well as a coastal section.

On this walk expected sightings include the Tawny Pipit, the elegant

Woodchat Shrike, the solitary Blue Rock Thrush and the disputed ‘King

of the Birds’ from a legend told by Pliny and Aristotle, the Firecrest. 6

miles, ascent/descent 100m.

Portugal – Walking and Birdwatching

Sunshine and fantastic beaches – the Algarve is a great place for a holiday. But the eastern Algarve, with its vast wetlands

which stretch from Faro to close to the border with Spain, is a nature lover’s wonderland. The system of barrier islands and

peninsulas creates a variety of habitats in which wildlife, especially birds, can thrive in the spring we visit the Alentejo. Inland

from the coast, the Alentejo is an entirely different landscape to the Algarve, but just as enchanting. Great plains dotted with

cork oaks stretch to the horizon. Protected areas, where hunting is banned and only traditional methods of agriculture are

practised, have become one of the most important bird watching centres in Portugal and a perfect environment for the Great

Bustard, the heaviest of flying birds. In the autumn, the Alentejo is replaced by a walk in Portugal’s wild west at Cape St

Vincent. Your holiday hotel is on the outskirts of the historic town of Tavira. The busy market town has no less than thirty-seven

churches and a lovely arched Roman bridge spanning the River Gilau. The pleasant old centre has arcades, shops and cafes.

• 7 nights hb near Tavira • 3 included walking excursions • Walks accompanied by an expert birdwatcher

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Faro, transfer to your hotel, forty minutes away, for

seven nights half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included walking excursions.

Walk 1: The Ria Formosa Natural Park. In the morning, transfer to the

start of your walk near Faro (27 miles). The Ria Formosa nature area is

one of the most important protected areas in the south of the Iberian

Peninsula. You walk towards Quinta do Lago, passing salt marshes

carved into a labyrinth of tidal flats, salt ponds, warm water lagoons

and channels which provide shelter to many bird species, including

Flamingos, Spoonbills, Storks and Hoopoes. The walk takes you through

the area of Ludo, located in the middle of a complex of salt pans at the

edge of the São Lorenço River, passing along salt mountains, eucalyptus

and pine tree forests. The walk is level and about 4 miles. You return to

the hotel in the late afternoon.

Walk 2: 15-mile transfer east to the wetlands of the Castro Marim

Nature Reserve, on the mouth of the river Guadiana, the natural border

between this side of Portugal and Spain. From the main road near the

old town of Castro Marim you do the first part of the walk next to salt

marshes, saltpans and cultivated fields towards the Visitor´s Centre – a

good area for waders, warblers and even the Little Bustard in the dry

flats of the marsh. 2.2 miles, ascent/descent 30m. Short transfer to

the next walk through the more industrial saltpans of Cerro do Bufo.

Along this dirt road you can see waders, gulls, terns and herons on one

side and ground birds in the fields on the other side. Expected birds

to be seen on the day are Crested Lark, Black-winged Stilt, Flamingo,

Spoonbill, Avocet, Osprey, Marsh Harrier, Kentish Plover, Dartford

Warbler, Stone Curlew. 3.75 miles, ascent/descent 10m.

Walk 3 (Spring departures): An early start for the journey to Castro

Verde in the inland province of Alentejo (83 miles). Alentejo is one of

the most beautiful and sparsely populated areas of Portugal and holds

one of the best-preserved steppes in Europe. The Special Protection

Area of Castro Verde is full of birdlife and in the spring the fields are

carpeted with wild flowers. You pass the grassland and oak woods in

search of the iconic Great and Little Bustards, Black-bellied Sandgrouse,

Bee-eaters, the first Rollers of the year, Black-eared Wheatear, Iberian

Grey Shrike and raptors such as the Black-winged Kite, Booted and

Short-toed Eagle, Red and Black Kite, Griffon and Black Vulture and

sometimes even young Golden, Bonelli´s and Spanish Imperial Eagles.

6.8 miles, ascent/descent 200m. Depending on the day of operation,

lunch is included in the Castro Verde LPN visitor centre. Time permitting,

a stop will be made on the return journey in the old walled town of

Mertola on the Guadiana river. Return to the hotel late afternoon.

Walk 3 (Autumn departures): An early start for the 82-mile transfer

to the start of today’s walk from Vila do Bispo to the lighthouse at Cabo

São Vincente. It is the most south-westerly point in mainland Europe

and was considered by the Romans to be the end of the known world.

Our walk affords stunning views of the ocean and takes us across the

Vale Santo where, in October, migrating raptors may often be seen

including Booted, Short-toed and Bonelli’s Eagles, Griffon and Egyptian

Vultures, Honey-buzzards and Black Kites, various falcons plus Black

Storks. The walk is a little under 8 miles and has a few gentle inclines.

Return to the hotel in the late afternoon.

Day Eight: Free time until your departure transfer to the airport for

your flight home.

YOUR HOTEL

VILA GALE ALBACORA HHHH, Tavira (seven nights)

The hotel is situated in a protected area at the mouth of the River Gilau

on the outskirts of Tavira. It is a 40-minute walk to the town centre.

8 days from £949 May

France – Camargue, Alpilles & Crau

La Camargue, les Alpilles and la Crau – the French ‘golden triangle’ of biodiversity. The Camargue, with its white horses, black

bulls and pink flamingos, needs little introduction. Just to the north, the jagged, limestone peaks of the Alpilles mountains are

a striking contrast to the vast wetlands of the Camargue. Sandwiched between the two is la Crau, a unique, ancient steppe

landscape where shepherds have tended their flocks for 6,000 years. You’ll discover the amazing flora and fauna of all three

environments on guided walks with an expert naturalist. You’ll also enjoy the manmade wonders of the city of Arles, your

holiday base, renowned for its Roman monuments, Van Gogh scenes, and, of course, Provençal cafés and restaurants!!

• 7 nights bb in Van Gogh’s Arles • 3 included excursions • Services of an expert guide

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Marseille or Nîmes, transfer to your hotel in Arles

(one hour from Marseille, 40 minutes from Nîmes) for seven nights hotel

accommodation. Two dinners in the hotel are included during your stay,

leaving five nights to sample the delights of the local restaurants. Your

Tour Director will be on hand to assist. A walking tour of the city will

show you the major sights and attractions of this splendid city - the

remarkably intact 1st century AD amphitheatre could entertain 30,000

spectators and is still used today; the Musée Réattu, a 15th century

priory of the Knights of Malta on the bank of the river Rhône; the Place

de la République with its obelisk and impressive town hall. Devotees

of Van Gogh will recognize many parts of the city from his paintings,

including the courtyard of the old hospital where he was treated after

cutting off his ear, the amphitheatre, his café terrace, and the Rhône -

especially on a starry night!

DAYS TWO TO SEVEN: There are three included walks during your stay

in Arles.

Walk 1: La digue à la mer. Transfer to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (23

miles). On the way you’ll hear the story of the Three Marys (Jacob,

Salome and Magdalene) and their servant Sarah, patron saint of Gypsies,

thousands of whom have been making the annual pilgrimage to Stes-

Maries for centuries. ‘La digue’ is the dyke built in 1859 to keep the sea

at bay. This is a long but easy walk which takes you into the heart of the

Camargue National Nature Reserve. Landmarks along the route include

the Rousty sluice gate, the old customs house and the working Gacholle

lighthouse whose 60ft tower can be seen from miles around. Common

bird sightings will include warblers, gulls, terns, waders and avocets

but the emblematic Pink Flamingos are especially visible at the end of

the walk in the Fangassier lagoon where between 15 and 20 thousand

breeding pairs of them should be waiting for you. 11 miles – flat.

Walk 2: Travel by coach to the Domaine de La Palissade at the mouth

of the Rhone (28 miles). On the way there you should see numerous

species of heron, Glossy Ibis and many migrants: Marsh Terns, Caspian

Tern, Bee-eaters and Rollers. On a 1 mile flat walk you can see a

breeding colony of Slender-billed Gulls, Gull-billed Terns and Little Terns.

Sometimes, the world’s largest Tern species, Caspian, can be seen with

the smallest: Little!” Leaving the Domaine, you take the short ferry

crossing from Salin de Giraud to Port Saint Louis and travel 17 miles to

la Crau Nature Reserve. Legend has it that the countless polished stones

covering the terrain were rained down by Jupiter and used as missiles

by Hercules in battle after he had used all his arrows. On a 2 ½ mile

flat walk you would hope to see Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Lesser Kestrel,

Larks and Tawny Pipit.

Walk 3: Les Alpilles – Saint Paul-de-Mausole, Glanum and the Vallon

de St Clerg. Transfer to the start of the walk (19 miles) in Les Baux de

Provence. Here you take a short walk on a path overlooking a wonderful

landscape in search of Blue Rock Thrush at the foot of the imposing

ruined citadel. The walk continues to Saint Rémy de Provence (6 ½

miles, 250m ascent/ descent), passing through the wooded valley of St

Clerg, past the archaeological site of Glanum as far as Saint Paul-de-

Mausole where Van Gogh painted over one hundred works of genius

while a voluntary patient in the rest home for just under a year. You have

some time at the foot of the two-holed rock looking out for the Bonelli’s

Eagle and also the Short-toed Eagle, Sub Alpine and Sardinian Warblers.

Portugal - the Algarve

To discover the real beauty of the Algarve our escorted walks, through glorious countryside decked with flowers, may

be the answer. In recent years the Algarve has become increasingly popular with walkers who realise that much of the

countryside and coastline remain unspoilt. Your walking guide will show you the very best of the region while allowing you

time to appreciate all that you see. Your resort, Armação de Pêra, boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve,

pretty coves, a panorama of brightly coloured fishing boats and a range of high-quality fish restaurants. So why not pack

your walking boots and enjoy the best that the Algarve has to offer?

• 7 nights hb in Armaçao de Pera • 3 included walking excursions • See the Algarve’s coastline and lovely hinterland

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Faro and transfer to your hotel in Armação de

Pêra, just 45 minutes away from the airport. Seven nights half board

accommodation is reserved for you.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included walking excursions

Walk 1: Chapel of Our Lady of the Rock to the Alfanzina lighthouse. You

start with a short transfer by coach to the Chapel of Our Lady of the

Rock. From there you cross the bays of Praia de Benagil and Praia de

Marinha. You follow narrow paths in an area where the cliffs are made

up of different colours of rock - excellent photo opportunities, and there

are impressive blowholes, too, to reach the Alfanzina lighthouse. You will

return to the hotel by coach. The walk is 5.5 miles, with climbs totally

150m approx.

Walk 2: Estombar to Silves. Your walk starts near the natural springs of

Estombar (15 minutes away by coach), which also provides the water

for the nearby rice fields. You will follow the Arade River - the Moors had

their regional capital here. The area is rich in birdlife, and you will pass

plantations of orange and lemon trees, as well as lavender. You complete

your walk in the centre of the pleasant village of Silves, where there is

time to explore before you return to the hotel. 5 miles, climbs of 50m.

Walk 3: Luz to Praia Dona Ana. The starting point of this walk is the

fishing village of Luz (45 minutes away by coach). You will walk uphill on

small footpaths and then continue along the picturesque coastline. In the

springtime especially, wild orchids accompany you on your way, together

with Affodile and Mastric bushes. There is also a marvellous view across

to the Ponta da Piedade, an impressive rock formation in the sea. Finally,

you will reach Praia Dona Ana, very close to Lagos and your finishing

point. The town is closely associated with Henry the Navigator, and was

the starting port of many Portuguese voyages of discovery in the 15th

and 16th century. Before you return to the hotel, you will have time to

explore Lagos. 6 miles, climbs 80m.

On one of your free days, we will offer a half-day excursion to Monchique,

Portugal - Cascais & the Sintra Natural Park

Just a few miles west from the hustle and bustle of the city of Lisbon is a hilly, forested area stretching down to the coast which

was a popular summer retreat for the rich and Royal families from the capital. As well as palaces, gardens and hermitages, there

are traditional villages and towns making this a ‘cultural landscape’ worthy of a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing. From your

base on the coast in Monte Estoril you have three guided walks in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. In your free time, you can

relax in the seaside resorts of Estoril and Cascais or take the short train ride to enjoy the sights, sounds and flavours of Lisbon.

• 7 nights hb Monte Estoril, with good access to Lisbon • 3 guided walks in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park

• Visit to Cabo da Roca, mainland Europe’s most westerly point

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Lisbon. Thirty-minute transfer to your hotel in Monte

Estoril for seven nights half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: Your hotel is in Monte Estoril between Estoril

and Cascais, the two main resorts on the Lisbon Coast. Estoril, with its

plush villas and Belle Époque casino is the more traditional of the two,

while lively Cascais still retains some of its character as a traditional

fishing town. They are connected by a seafront promenade and your

hotel is a 20-minute walk from the centre of either resort or you can

take the frequent local bus. There are plenty of shops and cafés close by

as is Monte Estoril train station from where there is a regular service to

Lisbon. Everywhere you go in Lisbon you will find evidence of the city’s

historic links with the Age of Discovery from where intrepid explorers

opened up the sea-trading routes to India, Brazil, China and Japan in the

15th century. Today, the city is a mix of old quarters such as the Alfama,

a maze of steep cobbled streets, the wide avenues leading to the 18th

century Rossio square and modern developments with fine shops.

During your stay you have three guided walks in the Natural Park, all

different in content and character showing you varied aspects of the

countryside, scenery and way of life here. There is a short coach transfer

to the start of each walk of about 10 miles.

Walk 1: Sintra Sierra – the Mystic Mountain. On this walk you go to

some of the Park’s highest points with glorious views to the sea. You’ll

also discover how the Sintra Sierra has enchanted its visitors over the

centuries. The walk takes you to the ‘Holy Spirit’ village of Penedo known

for its countless springs and streams. Lunch is included in a local tavern.

After lunch you complete the walk passing small stud farms. 9.75 miles

with ascents/descents of 600m.

Walk 2: Land’s End. The walk starts at Cabo da Roca, Europe’s most

westerly point. An ancient fisherman´s path leads to the untouched beauty

of wild Ursa beach, considered by the Michelin Guide as one of the most

beautiful beaches in the world. Continuing along impressive cliffs hugged

by the Atlantic, you approach the Fojo, a natural well that connects to the

sea and where the Romans believed that deep down there was a Triton

playing music in a conch. This walk ends at the beautiful Adraga beach.

5.5 miles with 550m ascents and 700m descents.

Walk 3: Hermitage and Gardens. The starting point is the same as Walk

1 but takes you on a different path and includes visits to a couple of

the highlights of the Park. The Convento dos Capuchos was carved into

the granite in the 16th century and the monks’ austere existence in the

minute cells is referred to in a poem by Byron. From here it is a 4.5

mile walk through a pine forest to the Monserrate Gardens and Palace, a

unique, exotic landscape again featuring in Byron’s poetry. The massively

rich exile, William Beckford, landscaped the site in the 1790’s. Sir Francis

Cook continued the work in the gardens and restored the Palace which is

a delightful mix of Moorish, Romantic, Gothic and even Indian styles. You

full of interest with ascents/descents of 350m.

Day Eight: Departure for the airport and your flight home.

The Guadiana River & Western Andalucia

Your holiday base is the 4* Playamarina Hotel on Punta del Moral on Isla Canela in Spain, just over the Portuguese border.

There are guided walks in the Natural Park area of the Donana, the Flecha del Rompido Nature Reserve and a walk and

boat trip along the banks of the Rio Guadiana. In your free time you can relax and enjoy the surroundings of your hotel or

take an optional excursion to the Rio Tinto mines.

• 7 nights hb in Isla Canela • 3 varied walking excursions • Guadiana River boat trip

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Faro in Portugal and transfer to your hotel on Isla Canela in Spain

for seven nights half board accommodation. The transfer takes around an hour, but you

have to put your watches on an hour when you cross the Guadiana which is the border.

Coastal Western Andalucia is defined by its magnificent wetlands of marshes, shallow

rivers and sand dunes. The largest is the Donana Natural Park formed in the delta of

the Guadalquivir. Between here and the Portuguese border, smaller nature reserves

surround the mouths of the Odiel and Piedras rivers near Huelva. On the border itself

where your hotel is, the Rio Guadiana is the major influence on the ecosystem and

feeds the marshes in both countries. Local flora and fauna is always a major attraction

of any walk, and, given the abundance of birdlife in the area, one of the walks majors

on the birdlife of the Rio Piedras.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included guided walks. There is plenty to do

in your free time. The front of the hotel looks across to the thriving fishing village and

marina of Punta del Moral. You can have a pleasant stroll around the harbour or take a

little ferry ride across to Isla Cristina. There is also a short signed-posted walk near the

hotel into the Isla Canela ‘Marismas’ (marshes). The rear of the hotel backs on to the

promenade from where there are wooden boardwalks across the dunes to the beach

and the sea which provide a heavenly environment for your morning constitutional.

Walking past the inviting chiringuito (beach bar) might be difficult! There is a frequent

bus service which makes the 5-mile journey to Ayamonte on the Guadiana river.

Ayamonte is a bustling ‘frontier’ town with a compact old centre, marina and port. The

‘frontier’ is the river and for under 3 euros you can get a return ferry across to the pretty

town of Vila Real de San Antonio in Portugal. If you can find the time, a complimentary

1 ½ hour circuit of the hotel’s extensive spa facilities is included for you!

Walk 1: Donana & El Rocio. Travel east by coach past Huelva to the start of your walk

in the Natural Park area of the Donana (67 miles). This walk is through pinewoods

across the dunes to the sea – but dunes here aren’t quite what you think! They are

ancient sand deposits rising to 100m offering great views of the sea and the pine

forests behind. Just over 4 miles with ascent/descent of 75m. You then travel to the

strange town of El Rocio (15 miles away), which seems like something out of the Tex-

Mex West, with clapboard houses, sand covered squares and avenues and rails to tie

your horse to! But this is no tourist movie set - in fact it is a major pilgrimage site. Your

walking guide will take you on a short walk featuring the major sites of this fascinating

town and there is free time for lunch here before returning to your hotel.

Walk 2: The Rio Piedras and Flecha del Rompido Nature Reserve. 30-mile transfer to

the beginning of your walk. You will need your binoculars today. You visit the marshes

of El Rompido doing a level walk through the pinewood, the salt marsh and a fish farm.

The area is full of birds and wildflowers and the headland where the lighthouse is

located offers one of the most beautiful views of the estuary. This 5-mile walk ends in

the attractive fishing village of El Rompido where there is plenty of free time for lunch.

Or, bring a packed lunch and take a ferry trip on your own across to the 10-mile long

sandspit and swim in the open sea. Several protected species live in the dunes of

the singular sandspit in a special ecosystem: among others the Stone Curlew, Kentish

Plover, Dartford Warbler and the European Chameleon. You return to the hotel by coach,

arriving back at approx. 1630.

Walk 3: Alcoutim & the Guadiana River. We head across the river by coach to Portugal

and north to Alcoutim (33 miles).The picturesque river town of Alcoutim has a Spanish

twin right on the other side, Sanlucar de Guadiana. The circular walk goes along the

river´s edge using the “Via Algarviana”, a trail that crosses the whole Algarve and then

through reforested pine wood and Mediterranean oaks. 5.3 miles and ascent/descent

about 150m. You have time to visit the castle in Alcoutim and lunch before taking a lazy

3-hour boat cruise down the beautiful Guadiana river to Ayamonte.

During your stay in Isla Canela there is also an optional excursion to the Rio Tinto

Mines. There has been mining in the hills 80 miles north-east of Isla Canela for over

5000 years. In the museum in the town of Rio Tinto there is an excellent re-creation

of the Roman mine. There is British influence in many parts of Spain but nowhere as

pronounced than in this remote corner of Andalucia. The pinnacle of mining in the

area began in 1873 with the arrival of the British Rio Tinto Mining Company Ltd who

paid £3.68 million for the rights to exploit the disused copper mines. The company

employed up to 20,000 men, laid 300km of rail track, built houses for employees and

management, a Protestant church and a Social Club which had a cricket team and

introduced football to Spain. The museum is housed in the company’s hospital and its

offices are now the town hall. Highlight of the tour is the rail journey through the open

cast mines where you’ll see an amazing ‘Martian’ landscape with the red (bright red!)

Rio Tinto river running through it.

Day Eight: Transfer back to Faro Airport for your flight home. You can put your watch

back an hour after crossing the river.

YOUR HOTEL

HOTEL PLAYAMARINA SPA HHHH, Punta del Moral, Isla Canela

(seven nights)

An excellent hotel in a quiet position located between the beach and the

marina on Punta del Moral. The hotel has a buffet restaurant with show

cooking, indoor and outdoor pool. There is also a spa (a free 1 ½ circuit

is included for you), bar and entertainment on most evenings. Rooms

Tuscany & Liguria

Your base in Marina di Pietrasanta, on the Tuscan coast, is quieter than some of its neighbours but just as attractive. Your

holiday includes three contrasting walking excursions: to the stunningly beautiful ‘Gulf of Poets’, just across the border in

Liguria, haunt of, among others, Byron and Shelley; along the river to Lucca; and in the Serchio valley in the Apuan Alps –

the ‘Marble Mountains’, whose stone is so prevalent in the cathedrals and baptisteries of the major Tuscan cities.

• 7 nights hb on the Tuscan Coast • 3 included walks • Train ride through the Apuan Alps

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Pisa and a short transfer to your hotel for seven

nights half board accommodation in Marina di Pietrasanta.

Marina di Pietrasanta: the modern beach resort is 3km from the old

town of Pietrasanta, and has shops, bars, restaurants and pier. The

resort centre is 700m from your hotel, and there is a regular bus

service to Viareggio and beyond which stops near the hotel.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included walking excursions.

Walk 1: Along the river to Lucca. Coach transfer via Puccini’s Torre del

Lago (he called it Paradise) to Ripafratta, from where you walk along

the river to historic Lucca. On your route you will see villages with

impressive towers, and woods. In Lucca you walk along the ramparts

and have a little free time to explore. You return to your hotel by train

(25 minutes) and coach (15 minutes). 7 miles, almost level.

Walk 2: Rail & Trail, the Serchio valley. You begin with a coach transfer

direct to the station at Aulla, in the Apuan Alps (32 miles, mainly

motorway). From there you take the 40-minute train journey through

the mountains to Piazza al Serchio. Your walk is approx. 6 miles to the

station at Poggio along the side of the valley (ascent/descent 150m),

through pastureland and chestnuts, with views towards old villages

and the Apuan Alps beyond. You return to your hotel by coach – time

permitting, there will be a stop in Lucca en route. Please note that, if

the train is not operating for any reason, a different walking excursion

will be arranged.

Walk 3: The Gulf of Poets. You have a 30-minute transfer north to

the village of Ameglia, at the mouth of the River Magra. From the old

hilltop village the walk takes you through the Montemarcello-Magra

Natural Park towards the maritime village of Tellaro, on the Gulf of

Poets. Tellaro is on the list of the ‘Most beautiful villages of Italy’: the

colourful fishermen’s houses cluster close to St George’s church. You

continue on to Lerici, with its 12th-century castle (worth the climb to

get the view towards Portovenere and the offshore islands). You will

have time to explore Lerici before the return to your hotel. The walk is

6 miles, with 300m of ascent and descent.

An optional excursion to Florence by coach and rail will be available.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to Pisa airport and your flight

home.

Monte Isola & the Camonica Valley

Italy’s other beautiful lake is Lake Iseo: smaller than its more famous neighbours (15 miles long), but just as perfectlyformed!

Nestling amid the scenic mountains, in a bay at the gorgeous Northern end of the lake is the resort of Lovere.

You will walk in the hills close to Lovere, and travel by boat and scenic railway to walk in the UNESCO-listed Valcamonica

area, and on Italy’s largest lake island, the appropriately named Monte Isola, ‘Mountain Island’ – it rises a full 420m above

Iseo’s shimmering waters.

• 7 nights hb on Lake Iseo • 3 included guided walks • Boat trip to Monte Isola

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Bergamo or Malpensa Airports. Transfer to

your resort of Lovere (40 minutes from Bergamo, 90 minutes from

Malpensa) for seven nights half board accommodation.

Lovere: Set on a bay of Lake Iseo, with a semi-circle of mountains

behind, the setting is wonderful. A member of ‘I Borghi Piu Belli

d’Italia’, ‘Italy’s Most Beautiful Villages’, this pretty little town of 5000

people has Italian-style arcaded streets, but with Swiss-style wooden

overhanging roofs. Along the lakeside are grand old palaces, a modern

yachting marina and a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

Climbing up into the old town, you are soon in an old-fashioned Italy

of shady squares and ancient church towers. There is good public

transport for getting around on local buses and a boat service which

links Lovere with Pisogne (15-minute trip), which has a railway station

on the line between Brescia and Edolo.

Days Two to Seven: At leisure in resort with three included walking

excursions. Optional excursions, including historic Bergamo, and a

scenic trip to St Moritz aboard the Bernina Express Train, will also be

chestnut trees, passing the village of Sellere. 6½ miles, 420m of

ascent and descent.

(or Co de Put in the local dialect!) to the medieval villages of Cemmo

and Pescarzo and back down – 5 miles, 300m of ascent/descent. You

return to Lovere firstly by train to Pisogne and then by ferry arriving

back in Lovere at 1730 approx.

Day Eight: Free time until your departure to the airport. Depending

on flight times, there may be time for a spot of last-minute shopping

en route.

8 days from £859 April to June, September

The Italian Riviera & Monte Carlo

The holiday base is Bordighera, on the coast 18 miles to the east of Monte Carlo. The British have enjoyed strolling in and

around Bordighera since the 19th century – so much so it was an enclave where the local Italians were a minority. Today,

Bordighera is an extremely pleasant resort whose climate and scenery can be enjoyed in much the same as visitors of

yesteryear. It was also a favourite resort of Claude Monet who stayed ten weeks here and painted thirty-five landscapes in

Bordighera and the neighbouring hills. There are three guided walks including one from Menton to Monte Carlo.

• 7 nights hb on the Italian Riviera • 3 included walking excursions • Visits to Monte Carlo and to the Princedom of Seborga

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Nice and transfer to your hotel (45-minutes) hotel in

Bordighera for seven nights half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: In Bordighera with three included walks. On

Day 2 there is a late morning walking tour pointing out the highlights

of the town.

Walk 1: Bordighera to Sasso & the Princedom of Seborga. For this walk

you start at the hotel on the seafront in Bordighera, passing through

the old town, before following an old watercourse through a valley of

palm trees to the pretty hamlet of Sasso. You then take the old road to

the village of Seborga, a historical curiosity: it is claimed that following

its omission from a series of treaties, it is not officially part of Italy!

9 miles there and back, with ascent/descent of 500m. If you wish to

walk a shorter distance, you can catch the local bus back from Sasso

or Seborga to Bordighera.

Walk 2: Taggia to the artists’ village of Bussana Vecchia. Coach

transfer to Taggia, which claims to be home to Italy’s longest medieval

bridge. You walk through the old town, and then climb through smart

villas, olive trees and greenhouses, following the old road and country

paths as far as Old Bussana - one of those ‘must-see’ places. What

was a completely empty village following the 1887 earthquake has

become home to a Bohemian artist community which took root in the

1960’s - not without controversy. 5 miles, 250m ascent.

Walk 3: Monte Carlo or Bust! You travel by coach to Menton, where

you walk up to Roquebrune village, before descending towards Monte

Carlo. Roquebrune, on Mont Gros, is a favourite place for hang-gliders,

and has fine views of Monte Carlo. Time permitting, you will have time

to explore a little of the Principality before you re-join the coach to

return to Bordighera, just 18 miles away. 7 miles, 200m of ascent/

descent.

In your free time there are several walking opportunities in the town

itself. One takes you to the scenes of several of Monet’s paintings.

Another is a one-mile walk along the Lungomare Argentina – the

colourful flower-filled promenade along the beach and the longest

pedestrian promenade on the Riviera. It was inaugurated by Eva Perón

whose husband had visited Bordighera in 1947. On Thursday there is a

market on the seafront near the hotel. Your hotel is handily situated for

the station, with services to Ventimiglia, and to San Remo and beyond.

There are also local bus services.

There will also be an optional excursion to the Nervia Valley. You drive

through Camporosso, a pretty village, and stop in medieval Dolceaqua,

dominated by the Dorias’ Castle. The bridge, over the Nervia river,

was painted by Monet in 1884. You will visit the ‘Visionarium’ – it will

surprise you, we promise! You continue up the valley to Pigna, a pretty

mountain village.

Day Eight: Free time until you depart for the airport. Dependent on

traffic conditions and flight timings, there may be time for some lastminute

shopping in Nice en route.

YOUR HOTEL

HOTEL PARIGI HHHH, Bordighera (seven nights)

This comfortable hotel is family-run and stands right on the seafront

promenade, just a short stroll from the town centre. Rooms have

flatscreen tv with satellite channels, air-conditioning, private bath or

shower, wc and hairdryer. Although the railway line passes 20 metres

behind the hotel, there are very few trains overnight and in any case

rooms are double-glazed. The holiday price is based on hill view

rooms. Side and full sea view rooms are available at a supplement.

shores of its own little lake. There is time to explore this typical village and

have lunch. You catch the train back from here. A gentle walk, approx 2

hours, 150m climb and descent.

Day Three: Today you travel south by private coach to the Riviera di

Levante. Your first stop is Vercelli, a historic town surrounded by paddyfields

(rice is exported worldwide from here). You continue south, stopping

for lunch en route, before you arrive at Casella, north of Genoa, to board

the ‘Three Valleys Train’.

In Genoa you will see something of the restored port and old city centre

before you complete your journey by coach to the chic resort of Santa

Margherita Ligure, where you spend four nights on a half board basis.

Santa Margherita lies in a sheltered bay, close to Portofino. Its harbour is

home to many gin-palace luxury yachts. All of this is close to your hotel.

Total today 160 miles, mainly motorway.

Days Four to Six: In Santa Margherita with included walking excursions

to the Cinque Terre and Portofino, and a free day.

limited. You walk to the station in Santa Margherita (600m) and take the

train to Monterosso (one hour), in the Cinque Terre. After a tour of the old

medieval town, you walk to the next village, Vernazza. The trail is narrow;

there are many steps built by the local farmers to get to their vineyards

and lemon groves. The walk takes about 2 ½ hours with an ascent/descent

of 300m. Once you reach Vernazza, you have time for lunch and to enjoy

the best-known town of the National Park. You then continue by train to

Manarola (7 minutes) to visit the village and walk a short but spectacular

loop (ascent/descent 100m) called “The Vineyards Trail” with breathtaking

views of the town and coast. After some free time, you travel back to Santa

Margherita by train.

The destination for your third walk is Portofino. You start your day with

a walk through Santa Margherita Ligure, admiring its beautiful baroque

church and the garden of Villa Durazzo. At the end of the sea promenade

you take an old mule path up through the woods for excellent views of

the bay. You continue through the woods to the most spectacular section

of the walk, overlooking all the Tigullio Gulf from Sestri Levante (12 miles

distant) to Portofino. The trail goes through a valley of the ancient olive

mills to finally reach Portofino. Actual walking time is about 3 hours, 4

miles, with 200m of ascent/descent, but you take all morning, with a lunch

break in the valley of mills and arrive in Portofino in the early afternoon.

Portofino’s colourful hotchpotch of fisherman’s houses embraces its

harbour and the luxury craft of the nearby villa-owners. Above the harbour

Elba & Tuscany

Napoleon was famously banished to Elba, before he returned to…meet his Waterloo. An extremely nice place to be exiled

to! Like him, you will travel across to one of Europe’s most enchanting islands where, on two guided walks, you will

wonder why he ever wanted to leave! But leave you must, too - to enjoy some of the scenic landscapes and beautiful cities

in Tuscany. Visits to ‘spooky’ Volterra and magnificent Siena are included. From your base in the old city of Prato there is

a third guided walk and mighty Florence is also easily accessible.

• 4 nights bb Tuscan mainland, 3 nights hb on Elba • 2 guided walks on Elba and 1 in Tuscany • Walking tour

of Prato • Ferry trip to Elba

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Pisa. There is a short transfer to Livorno, Tuscany’s second

city, which has a Medici Fortress and mercantile ‘Little Venice’ area, for one

nights bed and breakfast accommodation.

Day Two: After breakfast, depart Livorno and head inland to Volterra, 45

miles away, an ancient walled town on a hilltop dominating the rolling Tuscan

countryside, with medieval and Renaissance buildings, Roman theatre, forum

and baths. D.H. Lawrence called Volterra ‘an inland island’, and the popular

vampire novel ‘New Moon’ (part of the Twilight Saga) was set there – you can

see why!

In the afternoon, you leave Volterra and drive to Piombino, 55 miles away,

to board the roll-on, roll-off ferry to Elba, less than 10 miles offshore – the

crossing takes just under an hour.

You continue the short distance to your hotel in Procchio for three nights half

board accommodation. Your hotel is in a quiet location on the beautiful bay

of Procchio on the north coast of the island, seven miles west of Portoferraio.

Days Three and Four: From Procchio you have two included walking

excursions:

Walk 1: Elba’s West: Short coach transfer to Zanca, at a height of 300m on

the west coast of Elba, from where you walk down to Sant Andrea beach

(about 40 minutes). After a break, you walk down to the resort of Marciana

Marina with superb sea views as you go (about 3 hours, 4 miles, 100m

ascent/descent). After free time in Marciana Marina, you return to your hotel.

Walk 2: Elba’s South: Short coach transfer to the narrow Stella peninsula, on

the south coast. Your first path starts from the village of Lacona and winds up

100m through wonderful Mediterranean vegetation (40 minutes), with umbrella

pines and eucalyptus prominent. After taking in the stunning views, you retrace

your steps and follow a different path around the peninsula – a further 3 hours

walk. There is free time in the village of Lacona for lunch, after which there is a

coach transfer to the island’s harbour town of Portoferraio (time to climb to the

fortress if you wish) and thence to Procchio. Distance walked approx. 6 miles,

ascent/descent 250m.

Day Five: Today you leave Elba and return to mainland Tuscany. You stop in

Siena before continuing to the walled city of Prato (total today 150 miles). Siena

is best known as the city of the spectacular bareback Palio Horse race. The race

takes place on the spectacular, shell-shaped Piazza del Campo. St Catherine

of Siena is, with St Francis, one of Italy’s two patron saints – her head was

supposedly smuggled out of Rome and is stored in the church of St Dominic:

and don’t miss the cathedral, one of Italy’s most stunning Gothic churches.

You continue to Prato, just 10 miles from Florence (frequent train services

take 25 minutes), historic in its own right, and well worth taking time to visit,

but fortunately without the great Florentine tourist flows! Although Prato is an

important modern centre for textiles, the old town within the walls is a world

apart – a lovely place to stroll and enjoy the real Italy. Your hotel is just a few

steps from the town walls, so it’s easy to explore. Three nights in Prato on a

bed and breakfast basis.

Days Six and Seven: Free in Prato, with an included half-day walking tour

of the old city and an included walking excursion. Otherwise you are free in

Prato – why not catch the local train to Florence, or to Pistoia, another attractive

nearby town. Both are just 20 minutes train ride, or 5 euros away!

Walk 3: You meet your guide at the hotel and catch the local bus just out of

town, to S.Lucia di Prato and walk through a rocky landscape with springs and

caves. There are views of the river valley, old villages and woodlands. After your

walk, you catch the bus back to town, for lunch and a free afternoon. The walk

is about 4 miles with ascents/descents of 350m.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to airport and your flight home.

Depending on flight times, there may be time for some last minute shopping/

sightseeing en route.

Lake Maggiore

This holiday includes a week on Lago Maggiore, Italy’s second largest lake, which stretches north from Lombardy and up

into Switzerland. It lies, sheltered, on the south side of the Alps, making for a mild climate and consequent lush vegetation,

with Mediterranean and exotic flora, including azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias. Maggiore is, in our view, much more

scenic than, for example, the much larger Lake Garda to the East.

• 7 nights hb in Stresa • 3 guided walks in the wonderful lakeland scenery • Train and boat trips to access walks

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Milan, transfer to your hotel on Lake Maggiore

for seven nights half board accommodation. Transfer times from

Malpensa, Linate and Bergamo are 30 minutes, 1 hour and 1 hour 30

minutes respectively.

DAYS TWO TO SEVEN: On Lago Maggiore with 3 included walking

excursions. Your base is Stresa, half way up the lake, which was put

on the 19th-century ‘Grand Tour’ map by Napoleon’s widening of the

access road to the Simplon Pass – illustrious visitors came to enjoy the

lakeside villas and health-giving waters. The lakeside promenade near

the hotel allows for a pleasant stroll to the pretty town centre - around

the main Piazza there is a good range of shops, bars, and restaurants,

and from the art nouveau ‘imbarcadero’ boats and steamers traverse

the lake on a regular basis (various types of tourist ticket are available).

Walk 1: Suna, the ‘Portofino of the Lake’, and Cavandone. Across the

bay lies Suna, the most evocative part of Verbania. You travel there by

local bus and begin your walk through the clustered medieval village

houses, linked by seemingly random arched passageways. You then

follow a mule track past orchards, fine old villas, a 14th-century tower

and a chapel, from where there are lovely views out over the lake

towards the Borromean islands and the Alps beyond. Passing through

a chestnut grove, you reach the hamlet of Cavandone, the ‘Village of

Stone Carvings’, returning to Suna by a different route. 5 miles, 265m

of ascent/descent.

before descending into Stresa. 5 miles, 260m of ascent/descent.

There will also be a fourth, optional walk. On your free days, there

is lots to see. Don’t miss the magnificent Borromean Palace on Isola

Bella, and the Villa Taranto, with its wonderful garden, created by the

Scottish captain Neil MacEacharn. Optional coach excursions are also

available.

Day Eight: Free time until you depart for the airport for your flight

home.

YOUR HOTEL

HOTEL MILAN SPERANZA AU LAC HHHH, Stresa (seven nights)

This four-star hotel is in two adjacent buildings in the centre of Stresa,

overlooking the lake and opposite the boat station. The Speranza has a

pleasant street-front café while the Milan houses the hotel restaurant. All

rooms have bath or shower, wc, hairdryer and satellite tv. Lake view rooms

are available at a supplement. Milan Speranza guests have use of the

swimming pool at the nearby Hotel Regina Palace. (www.milansperanza.it)

If you have friends who are not walkers interested in this itinerary, it is

featured in our Escorted Holidays brochure with a touring programme.

Walk 2: The Western Lake/Monte alle Croci. You take the train to Lesa

(a 12-minute journey), and climb gradually towards Comnago – there

are views to Angera castle, over on the other side of the lake. Passing

the Maria Assunta Chapel you climb through the wood to reach the

summit of Monte alle Croci, with a wonderful panorama of the lake.

Return is by a different route, partly on a road and partly on a mule

track. 6 miles, 420m of ascent/descent.

Walk 3: The Chestnut route: Belgirate to Stresa. You catch the train

to Belgirate, 10 minutes away, and follow a route through the woods

above the lake, climbing towards the villages of Falchetto and Passera

Poland - Krakow & the High Tatras

Two of Poland’s most spectacular sites, Krakow and Zakopane, are brought together in this holiday of contrasts. Firstly,

the medieval UNESCO-listed university city of Krakow, for centuries Poland’s capital, and hometown of both Chopin and

Pope John Paul II. Your second base is Zakopane, Poland’s highest city, amidst the spectacular Tatra Mountains and

situated 800m above sea level. Zakopane is famous for its unique wooden architecture, featuring pretty, wood-fronted,

19th-century villas with high, sloped roofs! Your journey between Krakow and Zakopane will take a little longer than you

might have expected – you will spend 2-3 hours gently meandering through the Dunajec River Gorge on rafts! This will

allow you to fully appreciate the rocky landscapes of the Pieniny Mountains. (Note: the coach continues with your luggage

– if weather conditions dictate, or if anyone prefers, the land route by coach may be used).

• 3 nights bb Krakow, 4 nights bb Zakopane • Raft trip through the Dunajec Gorge • Walking tour of Krakow

• 3 varied guided walks, 1 near Krakow and 2 near Zakopane

PROGRAMME

Throughout the tour you are on a bed and breakfast basis. There is a

wide variety of lunch and dinner options available in all price ranges in

both Krakow and Zakopane. Your representative will be happy to assist

if required, but English is widely spoken

Day One: Flight to Krakow. On arrival you meet our representative

and transfer to your hotel in Krakow for three nights bed and breakfast

accommodation.

Days Two and Three: Included half day walking tour of Old Krakow,

also known as Stare Miasto. There is also an optional afternoon

excursion to the stunning Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Walk 1: From Krakow there is also an included walking excursion. You

travel by local bus for a 5-mile walk in the forested Ojcowski National

Park, Poland’s smallest National Park, located 8 miles north of Krakow.

Ascent and descent of 100m.

Day Four: Today you travel to Zakopane, but instead of doing all the

journey by road, you take 2-3 hours rafting gently through the stunning

scenery of the Dunajec River Gorge, before arriving at Zakopane, in the

heart of the Tatra Mountains. Four nights are spent here on a bed &

breakfast basis.

Days Five to Seven: In Zakopane, with two included guided walks.

Walk 2: You take the local bus to walk through a glacial valley (Malej

Laki) to Kondracka Pass, at a height of 1725m. You descend the valley

towards Zakopane. The walk is about 8 miles with ascent of 690m and

descent of 850m.

Walk 3: You travel out of Zakopane by bus to start your walk near to

the Slovakian border. The walk follows a trail through Hala Gasienicowa

alpine meadow (1500m) and then back to Zakopane. The walk is about

8 miles and with 300m of ascent and 650m of descent.

While staying in Zakopane you also have the opportunity to cross

the border into Slovakia, Poland’s southern neighbour, on an optional

excursion. The High Tatra Mountains straddle the Polish-Slovakian

border, and you will be able to experience the fantastic scenery from

a different perspective – the cable car from Stary Smokovec to the

mountain town of Hrebienok, at an altitude of 1200m. There is the

chance to take a walk along marked paths to the scenic waterfalls of

the area.

Day Eight: Free time until your departure transfer to the airport and

your return flight home. Depending on flight times, there may be some

time in Krakow en route to the airport.

The Julian Alps of Slovenia, Venice & Trieste

The Italian cities of Venice and Trieste, the coastline of the Venice Gulf and the Julian Alps of Slovenia are the ingredients

for this varied and interesting walking holiday. The ‘Serenissima’ – the ‘most serene’ Venetian republic, governed much of

the Adriatic. The Winged Lion of St Mark, the city’s emblem, can be seen everywhere in the region - look out for it in Trieste

when you travel between Italy and Slovenia. As well as a visit to Venice by night, there is a guided walk down into James

Joyce’s Trieste, another in the mountain resort of Kranjska Gora and a third around beautiful Lake Bled high in the Alps.

• 3 nights hb Lido di Jesolo, 4 nights hb in the Slovenian Mountains • Excursion to Venice by boat • Visits to

Trieste and Udine • 3 varied guided walks in Italy and Slovenia

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Venice or Treviso airports. Transfer to your hotel (40

minutes from Venice airport, one hour from Treviso) for two nights half

board accommodation in Lido di Jesolo, a resort town with 10 miles

of beach.

Day Two: After breakfast, you set off for a full day excursion to nearby

Venice. There is a 40-minute coach transfer to Punta Sabbioni for the

scenic boat trip across the lagoon – you arrive close to Piazza San

Marco. After a walking tour with local guide, you will have time to

explore the world’s most romantic city, the city of canals and islands.

You return to your hotel, again by boat and coach, in time for dinner.

Day Three: Today you drive east towards the border with the former

Yugoslavia. Your main stop today is Trieste, once the major port of the

Habsburg Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Walk 1: This walk starts on a marvellous path from the little town

of Prosecco (famous for its namesake wine) which leads through

the karstic plateau and the cliffs overhanging the Adriatic Sea, with

a detour en-route to Monte Grisa and Vedetta, before arriving at Villa

Opicina passing close to the Emperor Franz I. Obelisk. From there, you

take the hybrid tram and funicular railway to Trieste, where you have

some free time to explore the city where James Joyce lived and wrote

many of his masterpieces. The walk is a little over 3 miles with ascent/

descent of 200m/80m.

of Kranjska Gora in the Upper Sava Valley, for four nights half board

walk in Slovenia. This walk (a further 4 miles) has superb views over

Lake Bled, its Castle and to the surrounding mountains. It is level apart

from the climb up to the viewpoint on the hill of Osojnica.

Day Seven: Today you leave Slovenia for Italy. You cross the border

and head to Udine, an interesting city with a long history. A Roman city

in origin, it stands at a crossroads of languages and cultures: a mix of

Italian, Slav and German elements, with a castle and stunning, marble,

Romanesque Duomo. From there you continue back to Lido di Jesolo

for one nights half board accommodation. 153 miles today.

Romania – Transylvanian Alps and Bucharest

Transylvania is a land of dramatic mountain scenery, idyllic rural countryside, Saxon medieval towns and villages and, of course, vampires! From

your main base in the medieval merchant town of Brasov, there are two walks in the magnificent alpine landscapes of the Fagaras and Bucegi

ranges, and a third walk in Viscri - a preserved pastoral setting unique to Romania. You also stay in Bucharest where you have a tour of Ceausescu’s

colossal House of the Republic, while Bran Castle, on the way to Brasov, lives up to the eerie, ghoulish image that Bram Stoker’s Dracula evokes.

• 3 nights bb in Bucharest • 4 nights bb in Brasov, and one dinner, in the Transylvanian Alps • Tour of Bucharest with entrance to

the Palace of Parliament • 3 contrasting guided walks • Visit to Bran Castle

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Bucharest, transfer to your hotel in the centre of the city for two

nights bed and breakfast hotel accommodation. There are plenty of restaurants in

downtown Bucharest to suit all tastes and budgets. Your Tour Director will be on

hand to assist.

Day TWO: Mid-morning walking tour of Bucharest. Romania’s cosmopolitan capital

is well known for its wide boulevards and fine pre-World War I buildings that gave

it the name of Little Paris. The tour will concentrate on the Old Town and the Calea

Victoriei - Bucharest’s most famous avenue which leads to the beautiful Romanian

Athenaeum, the Royal Palace and Revolution Square. Bucharest is also known for

its stark Communist-era architecture, exemplified in Ceausescu’s monster House

of the Republic, now known as the Palace of Parliament. A guided tour will show

you some of 1,100 rooms of the world’s largest civilian administrative building.

Day three: Travel north through the Southern Carpathians to Brasov, stopping

en route at Bran Castle. On a rocky outcrop guarding the entrance to a mountain

pass, the castle was built by the Saxons in the late 14th century to defend Brasov

from invasion by the Turks. Inside you’ll find displays of rich Western European

furniture, which Queen Marie, granddaughter of Queen Victoria, purchased in the

1920s when the castle was used as a royal residence. Continue to Brasov for four

nights bed and breakfast with dinner in a local restaurant this evening. (126 miles

today). Arrival in Brasov will be late afternoon. Your Tour Director will conduct a

short orientation walk of Brasov before dinner.

Days four to six: In Brasov with two included walks. Brasov is a medieval town

with ornate Saxon churches and townhouses. Local legend has it that when the

Pied Piper lured away the children from Hamelin they re-emerged near Brasov’s

main square, Piaţa Sfatului, in the heart of the medieval quarter. It is one of the

finest Baroque squares in Romania. Here you can visit the 15th century Town Hall,

with its quaint Trumpeter’s Tower on top, and the Lutheran Black Church - the

largest Gothic church between Vienna and Istanbul with a 6 tonne bell and a huge

organ with 4000 pipes. A great view of the old town is afforded from Mt Tampa

which can be reached by cable car or by a couple of marked trails.

Walk 1: Viscri. Coach transfer to Mesendorf (57 miles) for the start of the walk.

This 8-mile walk (270m ascent/descent) takes you over the hills and through the

meadows to Viscri. A combination of bulldozing by the Ceausescu regime and the

exodus of the German-speaking population after the fall of Communism threatened

to wipe out the centuries-old Saxon rural heritage in Transylvania. With the help of

benefactors, including Prince Charles, restoration and preservation schemes have

helped save many villages and Viscri is the most famous example. Barns, cottages,

cattle troughs etc. have been repaired and rustic skills re-introduced. After the

walk you have an included lunch in a local house, time to explore the village and

have a tour of Viscri’s UNESCO-listed fortified church. Under continuous threat of

marauding Mongols and Turks, the Saxons not only fortified their towns, but the

villages as well with defensive works centred around the church.

Walk 2: Transfer by coach to the Balea waterfall. The transfer takes 2 ¼ hours

which is much longer than we would normally undertake. But not only is the drive

worth it, it’s part of the day’s experience as it takes you on the northern part of

the Transfagarasan - voted Top Gear’s ‘best road in the world’. The really serious

bends are after the waterfall, but you see them in all their glory from the cable

car which takes you to Lake Balea at 6,780ft and the start of the walk to climb up

to the main ridge of the Fagaras Mountain. The narrow path is mostly uneven, on

rocky terrain, with steep sides. On the ridge, there are panoramic views over the

glacial valleys and lakes wherever you look. You continue along the ridge and then

descend back to the Lake from the opposite side on similar terrain. (2 ½ miles with

ascent/descent of 480m).

During your stay in Brasov there will also be an optional half day excursion to the

nearby fortified churches of Harman and Prejmer.

Day SEVEN: Return to Bucharest. Twenty four miles south of Brasov is the small

mountain resort of Busteni where you start your third walk.

Walk 3: The Bucegi Mountains (5 miles with ascent of 150m and descent of

300m). This part of the Prahova Valley gained popularity as a tourist destination at

the end of the 19th-century when King Carol I established royal residences in the

area. You take the cable car from Busteni to the Babele station (7,350ft) passing

the giant WWI memorial cross on Mt Caraiman. Babele is famous for its curiously

shaped rock formations. With spectacular views across the valley, your walk takes

you south to the Cota 2000 station where you take the cable car down to Sinaia

and re-join your coach for the onward journey to Bucharest (90 miles) for your last

night on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day EIGHT: Free time until your departure for the airport and your flight home.

YOUR HOTELS

HOTEL CAPITOL HHH, Bucharest (first two and last nights)

Cyprus - Akamas Peninsula & the Troodos Mountains

Cyprus is an ancient land of mystery, legend, beauty and love. Aphrodite rose from the sea foam near your resort of Paphos,

and took pity on Pygmalion by bringing to life his statue of the beautiful Galatea - their son was Paphos. At the crossroads

of three continents, the area has a long history of invasions, and but for its mountain ranges, whose winter snows irrigate

the island, Cyprus would be desert instead of the lush, green landscapes you now find. Paphos was the capital for 600

years and its visible archaeological legacy has led to the whole town being placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

• 7 nights hb in an excellent hotel in Paphos • Three included walking excursions • No single supplement on

some dates

PROGRAMME

Day One: Fly direct to Paphos. Transfer to your hotel in Kato Paphos

(20 minutes) for seven nights half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: Paphos orientation walk and three included

walking excursions, private transportation included. Two of the walks

highlight the Akamas peninsula – an area of rocky coves, sandy bays

on the coast and picturesque villages inland.

Walk 1: the Akamas Peninsula. After a 45-minute northwards coach

transfer into the nature reserve area of the Akamas peninsula, you

follow the trail that Adonis used on his way to meet Aphrodite (or so

the locals say!). The area is rich in flora, including species found only

here. The walk takes 3.5 hours (5 miles), with ascents/descents of

250m.

Walk 2: Panayia and the Vouni Trail. Today’s walk starts at the village

of Panayia, one hour’s drive from Paphos. The path goes through

vineyards and amid unusual limestone rock formations. Your walk

takes about 3 hours (4.5 miles), with ascents/descents of 300m.

Before returning to Paphos, you will visit Chrysorogiatissa monastery,

3000ft up (the trail’s name, ‘Vouni’ means a ‘peak’), and founded in

1152.

Walk 3: the Troodos Mountains, 1 ½ hours drive away. These

impressive, often snow-capped, mountains are the backbone of

Cyprus - the highest peak, Mount Olympus, rises to 6000ft. This is

a 5-mile trail around the mountain starting and finishing on the road

to Chionistra, crossing ski runs and with stunning views on all sides.

There are signs indicating particular flora species on the slopes and

you will see black pines and junipers of the region growing out of the

barren rocks. 3 hours, with little ascent or descent. Apart from your

three included walking excursions, there is an optional excursion to

the capital and Green Line in Nicosia.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport for your return

flight.

YOUR HOTEL

PIONEER BEACH HOTELHHHH Paphos (seven nights) November

2018 and February 2019

The Pioneer Beach is an impressive 4-star hotel with beautifully appointed

bedrooms, public areas, international buffet style restaurant and colourful

gardens. It is a pleasant 20-minute walk along the seafront to the shopping

area and a further 10 minutes to Paphos harbour, or a short ride on the local

bus. The hotel boasts a freshwater swimming pool with Jacuzzi, an indoor

heated pool with Jacuzzi, indoor and outdoor short mat bowling facilities and

outdoor Green Bowls facilities, and a floodlit tennis court. In the hotel’s Elixir

Spa there is a heated pool, sauna, steam bath, a fully equipped gym and

a hairdressing salon. Bedrooms have balcony, satellite tv, fridge, minibar,

hairdryer, scales, make-up/shaving mirror, bathrobes and slippers, safety

deposit box, ironing facilities, espresso machine as well as tea and coffee

making facilities. (www.pioneer-cbh.com)

Please note that in February 2018, accommodation will be at the 4-star

Athena Beach, a sister hotel of the Pioneer Beach located along the seafront

half a mile closer to the port area of Paphos. (www.athena-cbh.com)

Extend your holiday - extra week available in Paphos.

Tenerife

There are a host of reasons for visiting Tenerife - the largest of the Canaries, which the classicists rightly called ‘the

Fortunate Isles’. Fortunate, too, in having such a wonderful winter and spring climate for visitors from the freezing north!

An island of contrasts - miles of sun-drenched coastline surround Spain’s highest mountain, Mount Teide. Accessible by

cable car and often snow-capped, the desolate volcanic slopes of Teide are a world away from the tropical vegetation

of the banana plantations and the botanic gardens below. You stay in the north part of the island where the traditional

villages, the UNESCO-listed university town of La Laguna and historic Puerto de la Cruz are totally different in feel to the

commercialised resorts of the south.

• 7 nights hb on Tenerife • 3 walking excursions in very different areas of the island

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia Airport. Transfer

to your hotel (about one hour away) for seven nights half board

accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included walking

excursions in different parts of the island.

Walk 1: Mount Teide. A full day excursion onto Mount Teide, with

3-4 hours walking on the mountain slopes (breathtaking views), and

time to sightsee as well. A reasonably level route will be chosen

by your walking guides, according to the weather on the day. Total

distance 5-6 miles, reasonably level but at an altitude of around

8000ft.

Walk 2: Anaga. Your second excursion is to the north-east of the

island, for a walk in the Rural Park of Anaga, an area of volcanic

cliffs and Laurisilva forests rich in wildlife. Total distance 4.4 miles

with climbs of approx 300m.

Walk 3: Teno. The final included excursion is a full day trip to the

extreme north west of the island, where the Teno area lies, bypassed

by the traffic and seemingly by time itself. You walk in the

hills above Garachico, whose harbour was filled in by a lava flow in

the 18th century. This is a full day excursion, with 3-4 hours walking

and time for other exploring, too. Total distance 5 miles with climbs

of approx 350m.

Apart from your three included excursions, you are free to relax and

enjoy the extensive facilities of your hotel, or to explore Tenerife,

either independently or on an optional excursion, as you prefer.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport for your

return flight.

YOUR HOTEL

BLUE SEA COSTA JARDIN & SPA HHHH,

Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife (seven nights)

The hotel stands on the edge of Puerto de la Cruz, a 25 minute walk to the

seaside promenade (free courtesy bus 6 days a week during the day). There are

views to Mount Teide, the sea, and the Orotava valley from the hotel’s extensive

tropical gardens (1500sqm). Rooms have bath/shower, wc, hairdryer, satellite

tv, safety deposit box (charge applies), minibar, and balcony or terrace. There is

an outdoor pool, spa (charges apply), lounge area, poolside bar, entertainment

programme, buffet restaurant, and lounge area (limited free wifi). Prices are

based on standard rooms. Rooms with a view of Mount Teide are available at

a supplement.

8 days from £939 March & November 2018

Lanzarote & Fuerteventura

The entire island of Lanzarote is a UNESCO biosphere reserve, and it contains no less than 13 ‘protected areas’ including a Spanish

National Park - Timanfaya, where Raquel Welch was memorably filmed in ‘One Million Years BC’. As your base we have chosen

Playa Blanca, a quieter resort in the extreme south of the island, close to the Papagayo nature reserve.

The artist Cesar Manrique left an indelible mark on the island, not just in the artistic heritage, but in his (and his followers’) dedication

to maintaining the unique landscapes of his island and opposition to tasteless over-development. As you explore Lanzarote, you

will see that hi-rise building has been avoided, that the traditional rural architecture with its white buildings and striking green

paintwork has been respected, and above all that the island’s extraordinary landscapes have remained unblemished.

• 7 nights hb in Playa Blanca • 2 guided walks on Lanzarote • Ferry trip to Fuerteventura and a guided walk

PROGRAMME

Day One: Flight to Lanzarote, transfer to your hotel for seven nights

half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: In Playa Blanca, with three included walking

excursions, one to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura and two

within Lanzarote.

Playa Blanca: our chosen resort of Playa Blanca is quieter than most of

the island’s resorts, yet has every amenity. A particular feature is the

long promenade, which runs close to the harbour, passes the stunning

new upmarket development of Marina Rubicon and continues out

towards Papagayo. There are good island bus services, allowing you to

get around by public transport if you wish.

Walk 1: Southern Lanzarote. La Geria’s unusual vineyards and the

Natural Park of the Volcanoes. Coach transfer to the village of La

Asomada (25 minutes), from where you walk on Mount Gaida, with

superb views over the island. Your route takes you through vineyards;

the vines are cultivated here in an apparently inhospitable postvolcanic

environment. Entering the Natural Park area, you climb onto

the Caldera called Cuervo, for views into the crater but also across the

island. 7 miles, ascent/descent of 280m.

Walk 2: Fuerteventura. You walk to the port (20 minutes) to catch the

ferry to Corralejo, Fuerteventura (35-minute crossing). On arrival you

join your coach and head for the island’s old capital, Betancuria, which

takes its name from the first Spanish settler, Jean de Bethencourt, in

1405. You will have time to explore the white-painted village before

you start your 4-mile walk, which takes you along the spine of the

island, with great views all around. Your destination is Vega de Rio

Palmas – the ‘Meadow of Palms River’, where the apparently dry

watercourse does indeed provide water for the palm trees. You have

time for refreshment too, before you rejoin your coach to head for the

Corralejo Dunes Natural Area. There you walk a further mile or so to

explore the dunes - in fact an outcrop of the Sahara Desert, set by an

azure sea and again rich in birdlife. You return to the port for the ferry

back to Playa Blanca, arriving in time for dinner. 5 miles with mainly

descents of 200m.

Walk 3: Northern Lanzarote - Corona Volcano to the Crags of Famara.

Coach transfer to the Corona Volcano (45 minutes), Lanzarote’s

highest. Your walk takes you up this volcano and then across to the

cliffs at Famara, from where there are excellent views of the Chinijo

archipelago. Along the way you will discover some of the unusual flora

of this area, which has more water than the rest of Lanzarote. 5 miles,

550m of ascent/descent.

A fourth, optional, walking excursion may also be available.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport for your return

flight.

YOUR HOTEL

H10 LANZAROTE PRINCESS HHHH, Playa Blanca (seven nights)

Located in Playa Blanca just a short walk to the promenade, the hotel

has been recently refurbished. It has two restaurants, two bars and a

coffee bar. There are two swimming pools, minigolf and tennis court.

Free wifi in the lobby. Bedrooms have bath, hairdryer, terrace or balcony,

fridge and flat screen tv. Standard rooms have garden or mountain view;

superior rooms with pool or sea view are available at a supplement.

Extend your holiday - extra week available in Playa Blanca.

General Information

ITINERARIES AND HOTELS: Accommodation has been reserved in the hotels mentioned,

but we do reserve the right to substitute similar hotels should circumstances dictate. Please

note that at the discretion of the hotels (and their view of the local climate), lido and pool areas,

as well as air-conditioning, may not be operational, and hotels’ charging policies for access

to spas, safety deposits, wifi, etc are always subject to change. Half board normally includes

evening dinner and breakfast. We make group bookings in hotels. In some hotels this will

mean a set menu at dinner with no or limited choice, so please make sure we are aware of any

special dietary requirements. Where house wine is included with dinner, this will be limited in

colour, type and quantity by the hotel! Please refer to Clause 19 of our Booking Conditions for

further information regarding hotels. Hotel check-in times are usually between 2pm and 3pm,

check-out times between 10am and 12 noon on the day of departure. However, times do vary.

Therefore, if you check-in immediately after a night flight this would normally count as one

night’s accommodation. Similarly if your return flight is at night you will normally be required to

vacate your room in the morning prior to leaving for the airport later on. Day rooms are subject

to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the hotel. The order of visits described

may be subject to change. Where a train or boat journey features in a programme the journey

will be made by road if, for any reason, the train or boat is not operating. Optional excursions

operate at extra cost and are subject to minimum numbers. Changes may be made to the

particulars in this brochure at any time.

WALKS:WALKING GROUPS AND INSURANCE: The walks are designed for regular walkers

of average fitness. If you wish to walk further, our guides will assist you with information on

other walking possibilities in the area. If you wish to stick to shorter distances, some of our

walks can be abridged to suit – though in some instances you may have to pay for a taxi back

to the hotel from a convenient point!

For your comfort and security, and in recognition of the fact that paths in places may be stony

or wet, it is essential that you should have appropriate footwear: either strong walking shoes

or boots (new boots should be broken in) which give ankle support and have soles with a

good grip – walking poles (collapsible to fit inside hold luggage), if you have them, take the

strain off the joints, and are handy if not essential. A light waterproof coat is advisable, as is

sun cream and a hat; binoculars and camera are an extremely good idea, and drinking water

is essential.

The details of the walks are believed correct at the time of printing. However, they may be

amended due to local conditions or substituted with walks of similar content and quality. Similarly

the order of operation of the walks is subject to confirmation. Distances and elevations

should be taken as indicative only and may not agree with local signage nor with GPS systems’

readings, which, as we have found out, do not always agree with each other! Please bear in

mind that while walks are on marked paths, farm tracks and tarmac roads, the different nature

of terrain, vegetation and local standards in the resort areas means that these are often very

different to those you would find in the UK. Vive la difference!

We normally provide a walking guide/assistant guide for every 15-20 walkers. This ratio can

change slightly for operational reasons (e.g. terrain, local regulations, guide availability). When

required, transport to the start point is included. If we use a larger coach to get more than one

walking group to a start point, you may be asked to delay starting out so as to keep walking

groups separate.

Please check with your insurer if in doubt. Our travel insurance covers you for group walks up to

an altitude of 3000m (approx 9850ft). The highest altitude reached on any of our group walks is

2550m (8415ft). If you decide to walk separately from our group, or if you have not taken out our

insurance please ensure your cover is valid, particularly if you are going above 2000m/6560ft.

EXTENDED STAYS: Where it is possible to extend your holiday and have an extra week, all

excursions are planned to take place during the first week. Please note that in some cases

during the second week an emergency contact number will be given in lieu of the services of a

local representative. Naturally, your return airport transfer will be arranged for you.

PRICES: These are subject to change - please see Clause 3 of our Booking Conditions. However,

once we have confirmed your booking, your holiday price is guaranteed. Please

note that optional excursions, porterage, drinks with main meals and travel insurance are not

normally included in the holiday price. In some places tourist taxes are being introduced, which

are paid in resort by hotel guests. These are not included in the holiday price and will have to

be paid by you directly to the hotel. We shall let you know if such taxes apply when you book

or as soon as we become aware if they are introduced after you booked.

PAYMENTS BY COMMERCIAL CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD: Please note that all payments

by commercial credit or debit card are subject to a charge of 2% of the payment being made.

CUSTOMER CARE: Our customers can have complete confidence when booking an ATOL

protected holiday with a tour operator which cares about its customers. Our customers were full

of praise for the way our staff looked after them during the ash cloud crisis in 2010 and during

various Air Traffic Control strikes since. More recently, when Monarch Airlines collapsed, none

of our customers lost their holiday, and, those already abroad flew home without any delay. If

your homeward flight is disrupted, we will get you home as soon as possible. If the airline has

not made arrangements for accommodation and meals we shall do so. Please note that in

order to offer this service we rely on your cooperation in dealing with claims for reimbursement

from the airline concerned. Please see clause 18 for our general policy on flight cancellations

and delays.

FLEXIBLE ARRANGEMENTS: Obviously the departure dates of our holidays are set and as

advertised. Occasionally extra dates will be added due to demand – please look at our website

www.preferredts.com or call us. If you wish to combine two holidays into a longer break, or e.g.

stay behind in your destination country to visit friends, we will try to assist and arrange special

flight arrangements. Please note that for bookings including special flight arrangements there

will be an administration fee of £15 per person, and the deposit payment (non-refundable) will

be £250 per person.

HEALTH REQUIREMENTS AND TRAVEL ADVICE: There are no compulsory health requirements

for the countries we visit. For up to date UK government health and travel advice please

visit www.dh.gov.uk/ travellers (020 7210 4850) or check with your GP, practice nurse or travel

health clinic for advice. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office provides up-to-date travel advice

at www.fco.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo

EUROPEAN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD (EHIC):The EHIC replaced the old E111 in 2006.

Your EHIC lets you get state healthcare at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. It will cover

you for treatment that is needed to allow you to continue your stay until your planned return.

The card is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will not cover any private medical healthcare

or costs such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, being flown back to the UK, or lost or stolen

property. Therefore, it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance

policy. Most insurers now insist you hold an EHIC. The EHIC is valid in all European Economic

Area (EEA) countries. The EEA is a free trade zone between countries of the European Union

(EU), Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein. The regulations on access to healthcare in the EEA

also apply in Switzerland. Applying for an EHIC is free of charge. You can apply online at www.

ehic.org.uk or by phoning the automated service on 0300 3301350.

PASSPORTS/VISAS: Full British passport required. No visa requirements for UK citizens. Nationals

of other countries should consult the appropriate authorities. For visits to countries in the

EU, passports must be valid on the day of return, but you should give yourself some leeway.

Furthermore, requirements for countries outside the EU vary so we suggest you have 6 months

validity from the date of your return to cover all eventualities. Please call us if you would like

information about a specific country. You must have a passport for travel to/from the UK. In

case your passport is lost or stolen overseas, a photocopy of the photograph page will be of

help in obtaining an emergency passport from the Consulate for return travel. Make sure you

are insured for the costs of obtaining an emergency passport. These will be the application fees

but may also include expensive transport costs getting to/from the Consulate.

YOUR FINANCIAL PROTECTION: All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays in this brochure

are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL

Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels

and other services) is listed on it. Please see Clause 14 of our booking conditions for further

information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:

www.atol.org.uk/ATOLcertificate.

DATA PROTECTION: Please be assured that we have measures in place to protect the personal

booking information held by us. This information will be passed on to the principal and

to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements. The information may also be provided to

public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law.

Certain information may also be passed on to security or credit checking companies. If you

travel outside the European Economic Area, controls on data protection may not be as strong

as the legal requirements in this country. We will only pass your information on to persons

responsible for your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you

give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot

pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we will be unable to

provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on

to the relevant persons.) Full details of our data protection policy are available upon request.

We may also send you from time to time details of our other products and services and/or

those of our newspaper and carefully selected third parties which may be of interest to you. If

you do not wish to receive such information please indicate this in the space provided on the

booking form or call us.

ABOUT US: Preferred Travel Services is an award winning, independently owned, friendly company whose two directors share more than 60 years

with us recently.

My friend and I were fortunate to go on this holiday and I simply had to say

helpful at all times. Ms H, Co. Tyrone (Italian Riviera & Monte Carlo)

This was our ninth Walking holiday with you and one of the best! The walks

complemented each other perfectly with the variety of coast and countryside

and the guide for each walk was very knowledgeable. The hotels were a

good standard and the weather warm and sunny – all the ingredients for an

enjoyable holiday. Hope to be booking our tenth holiday with you next year.

Everything has exceeded our expectations, especially Maria the PTS rep,

Walking Holidays 2018 to March 2019

Dates, Prices and Flight Information

0116 279 3929

www.preferredts.com

Holiday Prices and Insurance Premiums

Prices shown are per person sharing a twin or double-bedded room. Supplements, including single room supplements, are shown

for each holiday. The deposit for each holiday is £125 per person (please refer to How to Book). Insurance premiums are £44.95 per

person under the age of 80 at the date of departure for holidays up to 10 days and £54.95 for two weeks.

Flights

We list all the airports available for each holiday. So if you have friends in other parts of the country who want to join you, you can

check which is the best airport for them. We are even able to arrange for a friend travelling from a different airport to share a twin/

double room with you for the holiday! Just ask us. Please note that while all airports are listed, by no means all of them will be used on

the same date. Transfers to your hotel on arrival will be arranged by coach, minivan or car as appropriate. In the tables which follow for

each holiday, ‘Dep’ times are departure times from the UK airport and ‘Rtn’ times are when you land back.

Flight Details

Airlines and timings are subject to change. Please refer to Clause 6 of the Booking Conditions. Our brochures are printed some time in

advance and, in some cases, before the airline has published its timetable. In these cases timings shown are based on experience of

previous years. While latest known flight timings will be given at the time of booking these can change. Sometimes an airline will add

a new route: when possible, we may add this to our programme. Sometimes routes are withdrawn, in which case we will adjust our

programme and offer alternatives if possible. In-flight meals are not included. Where airlines charge separately for checked baggage,

carriage of one suitcase per person is included in the holiday price. Precise information on baggage allowances will be sent with your

travel documents 10-14 days before departure along with your boarding passes for those airlines where we have checked you in on-line.

Seating Preferences on Flights (including seats together)

Specific seats, for example aisle or window seats, can be pre-booked at an extra cost. Otherwise, airlines will choose seats for you.

While most airlines allocate seats together on the same booking free of charge, this is not guaranteed, and you could be seated away

from your travelling companion(s). Therefore, if you have any seating preferences (including guaranteed seats together), it is important

that you tell us when you book, and, in any event, at least four weeks before your departure date. We shall tell you if your preferences

can be accommodated and at what extra cost, if any. Please note that any requests received within four weeks of your departure date

may not be possible, even with payment of an extra cost.

TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR BOOKINGS TAKEN UP TO 31 DECEMBER 2018

This information is subject to change without notice.

Travel insurance is a vital aspect to booking a holiday, giving you protection against unforeseen

circumstances that could otherwise spoil your holiday. It is important that you purchase travel

insurance that properly covers your participation in whatever activities you may undertake at the time

that you make your booking. To assist you with this, we have arranged travel insurance from Travel

& General Insurance Services Limited. Should you decide not to purchase our insurance, you must

provide us with details of your alternative insurance with your final payment.

The schedule of the cover opposite sets out a summary of the cover provided by our insurance.

Preferred Travel Services is a trading name of High Concepts Limited. High Concepts Limited is an

Appointed Representative of Travel & General Insurance Services Limited who are authorised and

regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, firm number 304788. Further details can be found at

https://register.fca.org.uk or by calling 0800 111 6768.

THIS SUMMARY APPLIES TO PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF EIGHTY YEARS AT THE DATE OF

DEPARTURE.

Premiums for persons under the age of 80 years at the time of departure are shown elsewhere in the

brochure. We regret cover is not available to persons aged over 80 years at the date of departure.

These details are correct as at 1 December 2017 and are subject to change without notice. As cover

under the Cancellation section commences immediately the holiday booking has been confirmed, no

refund in premium can be allowed. In the unlikely event that we have to cancel your holiday, any

insurance premiums paid to Preferred Travel Services will automatically be refunded. However, we

cannot refund premiums paid to other insurers. If you have arranged your own insurance please check

that the premium will be refunded in the event of cancellation by us.

Walking Holidays. Please check with your insurer if in doubt. Our travel insurance covers you for group

walks up to an altitude of 3000m. Some insurers have lower limits – usually 2000m. If you decide to

walk separately from our group, or if you have not taken out our insurance please ensure your cover

is valid.

Important declaration

An insurance policy can only provide cover in respect of an event/occurrence which is sudden,

unforeseen and beyond your reasonable control. Any facts known to you, which could possibly

result in you having to make a claim, must be disclosed otherwise you may not be covered. In

addition, anyone named under the policy must have read and understood the following relating to

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions which are defined as:

a) Any respiratory condition (relating to the lungs or breathing), heart condition, stroke, Crohn’s disease,

epilepsy, allergy, or cancer for which you (or any other person not necessarily travelling but upon

whom travel depends such as a Close Relative) have ever received treatment (including surgery,

tests or investigations by your doctor or a consultant/specialist, or prescribed drugs/medication).

b) Any Medical Condition for which you (or any other person not necessarily travelling but upon

whom travel depends such as a Close Relative) have received surgery, in-patient treatment or

investigations in a hospital or clinic within the last twelve months, or prescribed drugs/medication.

1. Have You or a Close Relative ever received treatment (including surgery, tests or investigations by

Your doctor, a consultant or specialist), or been prescribed drugs or medication for any respiratory

condition (relating to the lungs or breathing), heart condition, stroke, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy,

allergy, or cancer?

2. Have You or a Close Relative received surgery, in-patient treatment or investigations in a hospital or

clinic or been prescribed drugs or medication, within the last twelve months, for any other medical

condition?

3. Are You aware of any circumstances that could reasonably be expected to give rise to a claim on

this policy?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions or are in any doubt you must call Healthcheck in

confidence on: 01702 427 253. The medical screening helpline may be contacted between 09.00 and

These Booking Conditions and the information in the brochure and

our website form the basis of your contract with Preferred Travel

Services (‘we’ and ‘us’). ‘You’ means the person making the booking

(including anyone who is added or substituted at a later date).

1.Your contract – when you make a booking you guarantee that you

have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party

the terms of these booking conditions. A contract will exist as soon

as we send our confirmation invoice. This contract is made on the

terms of these booking conditions, which are governed by English

Law, and the jurisdiction of the English Courts. You may however,

choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you

wish to do so.

2. Payment – in order to confirm your holiday, the appropriate deposit

must be paid at the time of booking. The balance of the holiday cost

must be received by the Balance Due Date which will be shown on

our confirmation invoice. The Balance Due Date is 8 weeks before

departure for Group A Holidays (holidays by air), 6 weeks before

departure for Group B Holidays (holidays with no flight of more than

4 days duration) and 4 weeks before departure for Group C Holidays

(holidays with no flight of 4 days or less). If you are booking after that

date full payment must accompany your booking form. Reminders are

not sent. If we do not receive payments due in full, on time, we shall

cancel your travel arrangements and retain your deposit.

3. Your holiday price – we reserve the right to alter the prices of any

of the holidays shown in our brochure. You will be advised of the

current price of the holiday that you wish to book before your contract

is confirmed. The price of your travel arrangements was calculated

using exchange rates quoted in the Financial Times Guide to World

Currencies on 21/08/17 in relation to the following currencies: £1 =

Euro 1.09. The price of your travel arrangements is fully guaranteed

and will not be subject to any surcharges.

4. Changes by you – if, after our confirmation invoice has been issued,

you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example

your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost

to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request

request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part

of the arrangements.

cancel the holiday once it has been confirmed, you must immediately

cover is available for the condition. An additional premium may be payable.

A policy document that fully defines the cover, conditions and exclusions will be sent to you with your

booking confirmation. When you receive your policy, please take the time to read it carefully to ensure

you understand what is and what is not covered, and that all activities that you may wish to participate

in are included. If it does not meet your requirements, please return the policy, proof of premium and

any other relevant documents to us within 14 days of receipt and we will refund the premium in full,

provided you have not travelled or made a claim.

Failure to comply with the terms & conditions of the policy may result in cover being restricted.

6. If We Change or Cancel Your Holiday – As we plan your holiday

arrangements many months in advance we may occasionally have to

make changes or cancel your booking and we reserve the right to do

so at any time. Changes If we make a major change to your holiday,

we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time

before your departure. You will have the choice of either accepting

the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel

arrangements of comparable standard from us if available (we will

refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or

cancelling your holiday and receiving a full refund of all monies paid.

In some cases we will also pay compensation (see below). These

options don’t apply for minor changes. Examples of minor changes

include alteration of your outward/return flights which reduce your stay

in resort by less than 12 hours, a change of overseas airport, changes

to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same or

higher standard, changes of carriers. Please note that carriers such

as airlines used in the brochure are subject to change. Cancellation

We will not cancel your travel arrangements after the Balance Due

Date (see clause 2), except for reasons of force majeure or failure by

you to pay the final balance. We may cancel your holiday before this

date if, e.g., the minimum number of clients required for a particular

travel arrangement is not reached. If your holiday is cancelled you can

either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of alternative

travel arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available (we

will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value).

In some cases we will pay compensation (see below). If we make

a change to or cancel your travel arrangements for any reason, we

will not reimburse any expenses, costs or losses including, but not

limited to, payments to third parties such as insurance premiums, car

parking, hotel accommodation, currency, connecting flights or other

travel arrangements, kennelling fees etc. Compensation If we cancel

or make a major change we will pay compensation as detailed below

except where the major change or cancellation arises due to reasons

of force majeure. The compensation that we offer does not exclude

you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire,

adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, unavoidable

technical problems with transport.

7. Our Liability to you – (a) We make every effort to ensure that

all arrangements are made correctly and efficiently. We accept

responsibility if any of the services which we have agreed to provide

for you as part of our contract with you prove deficient or not of

a reasonable standard. We also accept responsibility for what our

employees, agents, suppliers and sub-contractors do or do not do

(providing they were at the time carrying out work authorised by us)

except for death, personal injury or illness results (dealt with below).

This acceptance of responsibility is, however, subject to force

majeure and the other terms of these Booking Conditions.

(b) Subject to these Booking Conditions, we accept responsibility

should you or any member of your party suffer death, personal

injury, illness, loss or damage as a result of any failure to perform or

improper performance of any part of our contract with you by any of

our employees, agents, suppliers or sub-contractors (providing they

were at the time carrying out work authorised by us) except in the

following situations. We will not be liable where any failure to perform

or improper performance was due to:- the act(s) and/or omission(s)

of the person(s) affected; or those of a third party not connected

with the provision of your holiday and which were unforeseeable or

unavoidable or an event which either ourselves or the supplier of the

service(s) in question could not have foreseen or avoided even with

all due care.

(c) It is a condition of the acceptance of liability set out in clauses

7(a) and 7(b) of these Booking Conditions that you notify us in

accordance with the terms of clause 9 of any claim made by you or

any member of your party. Any person(s) to whom any payment is

made (and their parent or guardian if that person is under 18 years

of age) must assign to ourselves or our insurers any rights they may

have to pursue any third party in connection with the claim. You must

provide us and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably

require.

(d) In all cases, we limit the maximum amount we may have to pay

you and/or any member of your party for any or all claims or parts

of claims which involve, air, sea, rail or road carriers and/or hotel

keepers and other services they provide as if we were carriers/hotel

keepers within the applicable international conventions (eg., Warsaw

Convention as amended for travel by air, Athens Convention for

travel by sea). Therefore for all claims which result from international

carriage, compensation will only be paid for those conditions where

the carriers concerned would be obliged to pay compensation at

the relevant international convention were a claim made against

that carrier in that particular situation. You must give credit for all

payments received from the carrier or other suppliers.

(e) This clause 7 is intended to set out our obligations to you as a

tour operator in the light of the Package Travel, Package Holidays and

Package Tours Regulations 1992. Please note, we regret we cannot

make any payment to you or any member of your party if the person

concerned is not entitled to one from us under these Regulations.

8. Prompt assistance in resort – If the contract we have with you

is not performed or is improperly performed as a result of failures

attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the

services, or as a result of failures due to unusual and unforeseeable

circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could

not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or an

event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not

foresee or forestall, and you suffer an injury or other material loss,

we will offer you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the

circumstances.

9. Complaints and problems – If you have a problem during your

holiday, please inform the relevant supplier (e.g. your hotelier) and

our resort representative immediately who will endeavour to put

things right. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please follow

this up within 28 days of your return home by writing by post to our

Customer Services Department giving your booking reference and all

other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the

point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed

up our response to you.

It is strongly recommended that you communicate any complaint to

the supplier of the services in question as well as to our representative

without delay and complete a report form whilst in resort. If you fail

to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the

opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were

in resort and this may affect your rights under this contract. We are

a Member of ABTA, membership number W3692. We are obliged

to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of

Conduct. We can also offer you ABTA’s scheme for the resolution

of disputes which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards

Institute. If we can’t resolve your complaint, go to www.abta.com

to use ABTA’s simple procedure. Further information on the Code

and ABTA’s assistance in resolving disputes can be found on www.

abta.com.

10. Behaviour – when you book with us, you accept responsibility for

any damage or loss caused by you or any member of your party. Full

payment for any such damage or loss must be paid direct at the time

to the accommodation owner or manager or other supplier. If you fail

to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims (including

legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions.

We expect all clients to have consideration for other people. If in our

opinion or in the opinion of any other person in authority, you or any

member of your party behaves in such a way as to cause or be likely

to cause danger, annoyance or distress to any third party or damage

to property, we are entitled, without prior notice, to terminate the

holiday of the person(s) concerned. In this situation, the person(s)

concerned will be required to leave the accommodation or other

service. We will have no further responsibility toward such person(s)

including any return travel arrangements. No refunds will be made

and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of

the termination.

11. Conditions of suppliers – many of the services which make up

your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers

provide these services in accordance with their own terms and

conditions. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude

the supplier’s liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable

International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms

and conditions are available on request from ourselves or the supplier

concerned.

12. Special requests and medical problems – if you have a request,

you must advise us at time of booking and clearly note it on your

booking form. Although we will try to pass any reasonable requests

on to the relevant supplier, we regret we cannot guarantee any

request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a

breach of contract; we cannot accept any booking which is specified

to be conditional on the fulfillment of a particular request. All such

bookings will be treated as standard bookings subject to the above

provisions on special requests. If you or a member of your party has

a medical problem/disability which may affect your holiday, please

tell us before you book so that we can advise accordingly, also, you

must give us full details in writing at the time of booking. Please note

that to get the best out of your visit to certain places may involve

walking on inclines, through cobbled streets etc. If we feel unable to

accommodate the needs of the person concerned, or reasonably feel

that the enjoyment of other travellers may be prejudiced, we reserve

the right to decline/cancel their reservation. We regret we cannot

accept any bookings from wheelchair users unless travelling with

a companion able and willing to take responsibility when boarding

coaches, trains etc and on excursions. If this proves not to be the

case at the start of or during your holiday, we shall assist in making

arrangements for your immediate return to the UK at your own cost

and we shall not pay compensation or make any refund in respect

holiday curtailment. Our representatives, guides, coach drivers etc.

are not permitted to offer physical assistance.

13. Passports, visas and health requirements. Your specific

passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements

are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant

Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if

you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport,

visa or immigration requirements.

Information on health is contained in a leaflet (Health Advice for

Travellers) available from local Department of Health offices and most

Post Offices. For holidays outside the UK you should have a European

Health Insurance Card prior to departure. It is your responsibility

to ensure that you are in possession of all necessary travel and

health documents before departure. The Foreign & Commonwealth

Travel Advice Unit may have issued information about your holiday

destination. You are advised to check this information on the internet

under the address https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice

14. Your Financial Protection – We provide full financial protection

for our package holidays. For flight-based holidays this is through our

Air Travel Organiser’s Licence number 5537. When you buy an ATOL

protected flight or flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive

an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where

you can get information on what this means for you and who to

contact if things go wrong. We will provide you with the services

listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some

cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons

of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the

services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to

you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative

ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any

money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that

alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases

it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which

case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or

your credit card issuer where applicable). If we are unable to provide

the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative

ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees

of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit

on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in return for such

a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any

claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the

non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the

travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also

agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if

that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL

scheme.

When you buy a package holiday that doesn’t include a flight,

protection is provided by way of a bond held by ABTA.

15. Brochure Accuracy – the information and prices shown in this

brochure may have changed by the time you come to book. Whilst

every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the brochure and prices

at the time of printing, regrettably errors do occasionally occur. You

must therefore ensure you check all details of your chosen holiday

(including the price) with us at the time of booking. This brochure

is our sole responsibility. It is not issued on behalf of and does not

commit any other organisation/ carriers whose services are featured.

16. Safety standards – please note, it is the requirements and

standards of the country in which any services which make up your

holiday are provided which apply to those services and not those of

the UK. As a general rule, these requirements and standards will not

be the same as the UK and may sometimes be lower.

17. Brochure Information & Timings – all timings given are for

general guidance only and are subject to change. Please note that

changes to flight departure times which reduce your stay in resort

by less than 12 hours are not major changes for the purposes of

clause 6. Precise timings, intended order of excursions/visits and

joining instructions will be sent with your tickets approximately

ten days before departure. You are asked to remember that hotel,

resort or other facilities may not be available during your stay

due to seasonality or may be withdrawn for maintenance or other

reasons beyond our control. In these circumstances we shall bear

no resulting liability. Please note: the duration/number of days

shown in the brochure includes the days of departure and return.

Any photographs/ illustrations contained in this brochure are purely

representative of the type of places visited, and do not necessarily

depict your exact accommodation/destination.

18. Flight Delays and Flights – While we shall try to assist in every

way to minimise the effects of any delays we do not accept liability for

any delays which occur. Where a delay does occur we shall consult

with the airline concerned regarding the provision of appropriate

refreshments. Some protection is afforded by our recommended

travel insurance, and you should ensure your own insurance policy

provides adequate cover for flight delays and cancellation. Under EU

Regulation 261 you have rights in some circumstances to refunds

and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding,

cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be

publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. If

your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain

to the CAA online at www.caa.co.uk. For assistance by phone call

020 7453 6888. However reimbursement in such cases is the

responsibility of the airline and will not automatically entitle you to

a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/

or compensation from us is set out in clause 6. If any payments to

you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be

deducted from this amount. Please note that any claim for payments

from an airline under EU Regulation 261 should be made by the

passenger. However, if you ask us to make such a claim on your

behalf, we shall deduct from any payment we obtain our reasonable

costs incurred in connection with a delay or in re-arranging flights

for you. Please note that very occasionally an airline may add a

touchdown en route. In this case a flight with an intermediate stop

not involving a change of aircraft is still considered a direct flight.

19. Hotel Ratings, Bedrooms and Meals. We are required by law to

state the star rating of hotels. All star ratings stated are those given

by the authorities of the country concerned and are an indication

only of relative standards. Actual standards can vary between hotels

of the same category. Similarly, as the basis for star ratings varies

from country to country, hotels with the same rating but in different

countries may not be of the same standard. Facilities in single rooms

may differ from double rooms. Hotels charge a supplement for single

rooms even where there is only one single bed as the costs of the

upkeep of the room is the same, regardless of how many people

occupy it. Triple rooms may consist of a double bed and bed-settee

or folding bed. Our aim of providing holidays with interesting and

unusual itineraries takes us to places away from mass-market

tourism. In some cases, where dinner is included, it may be on a

fixed menu basis with no choice as opposed to buffet style. Please

notify us of any dietary requirements. Depending on flight timings,

dinner may consist of a cold plate on arrival at the hotel if the kitchens

are closed.

20. Third Party Websites – We are not responsible for the contents

of websites of hotels or other suppliers and tourist boards etc.

included in this brochure or on our website. Their contents do not

form part of our contract with you nor can they be construed as

representations by us.
