Land adventures


FUN ON TERRA FIRMA

Walking from one headland to the next, cycling valley to valley, galloping across grasslands, watching wildlife in wilderness, conquering cols or striving for summits. These are the things that people dream of to shake off the stresses and strains of busy lives. With many small group tours out there, where you are guided by local experts, just pack and go. Or, more appropriately, go for it.

Iconic trips

Small group holidays grew out of peopleís desires to take on the iconic odysseys. Such as walking the Great Wall of China, hiking to Everest Basecamp, scaling Mont Blanc, summitting Mount Kilimanjaro, exploring Toubkal and the Atlas Mountains, or trekking the Inca Trail. Because, yes, you can organise these yourself but it will take months. And a lot of good contacts. Plus you can put your trust in a company that has spent years developing these contacts and seeking out expertise. Leaving you time to just get fit, trip ready and enjoy the adventure.

Horse riding

First things first. You do not have to be an expert to go on a horse riding holiday. Most cater for beginners, people who havenít been in the saddle for years, as well as regular devotees of course. Trekking across landscapes such as Chianti, Catalonia or Cuba is a thing of dreams. Mongolia, Morocco and Montenegro are otherworldly. Just check with the tour operator what experience is required first.

Wilderness adventures

Wildlife lovers will covet some of the wild places where you can venture on holiday. By definition these are in places pretty much untouched by man, so donít expect to sleep in a boutique hotel. Wilderness holidays take to the likes of the Yunnan Province in China, the Khangai Mountains of Mongolia or the Maliau Basin of Borneo. Or, closer to home, High Atlas Mountains of Morocco and the Wild Taiga in Finland.
