- For our all our walking and cycling holidays, we favour small local establishments, often family-run hotels or B&Bs, that employ local people and support the local economy.
- Selected by our track finders, our accommodations are chosen based on the friendliness of the owners, the quality of the service, the charm of the establishment and, quite often, the quirkyness (of both accommodation and owners!) that makes where you sleep an integral part of your adventure.
- When on a cycling tour, every establishment has safe bike storage.
Choose the level of comfort of the accommodation on your walking or cycling trip !
When possible, the comfort of our accommodations has 4 distinct levels:
- It has all the basic comfort and services.
- Can be rustic, mostly when located on the more remote areas of the destination
- Hotels or BBs of standard comfort, with en-suite rooms, with all the necessary services
- Most are family run and you will be warmly received.
- Our selection of Charming BB & hotels of great character
- Prestige accommodation, lavish guest houses of great character, Deluxe 5* hotel on some trips
- Give yourself a treat and go for a “Hiking or Cycling chic trip”!
