There's no finer way to get a true ‘sense’ of a place than a walking holiday. Whether you are in Turkey, Italy or the High Atlas Mountains, walking through the scenery, step by step, somehow bonds you to the country and culture.
You really participate in the landscape, with a fabulous sense of achievement each afternoon, having seen so much that can be missed by car.
You can head off with a map, meeting up with your luggage at the next hotel, or perhaps join a group of walkers with a guide and enjoy some company along the way.
Either way, the pleasure of physical exercise in the fresh air, exploring somewhere new, is invigorating and stimulating. Most holidays are graded so you can safely pick a route that suits your fitness, without finding yourself halfway up a mountain by mistake!
Enjoy breathtaking views, good food and pre-booked accommodation. All you need to do is stretch your legs perhaps, with a little practice before you leave.
