Heritage Walking Holidays

As well as spectacular landscapes and untamed nature, many of our tours offer the chance to immerse yourself in the history and heritage of your destination.

Our tours include a number of world heritage sites, such as the flamboyant palaces of Sintra in western Portugal, the amazing 6th century monastic village of Glendalough on Ireland’s Wicklow Way, and the colourful UNESCO World Heritage villages of Italy’s Cinque Terre.

Some tours also give an opportunity to experience a region’s distinct cultural heritage, such as the unique whistling language Silbo Gomero used to communicate across the deep ravines and narrow valleys of La Gomera, in Spain’s Canary Islands.

In France, Provence offers an incredible variety of scenic walks among the lavender fields and historic perched villages of the Luberon and Alpilles mountain ranges in the footsteps of famous artist Vincent Van Gogh.
