Creating something very special

Our superb selection of walking experiences and accommodation within incredible natural surrounds make the perfect setting for special interest trips.  Each year we offer a diversity of itineraries delivering tailor-made experiences designed to enhance learning in the outdoors.  This includes creative workshops (photography, art, writing) and mind and soul (yoga, mindfulness, personal development).  We love collaborating with creatives and businesses to deliver incredible eco-experiences and welcome enquiries for new concepts and proposals.
