August's photo of the month (04 September 2015)
This month's Slow Moments photography competition was judged by Joni Essex (co-owner/director of the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton), who selected Pamela Crawford's charming shot of a young Tibetan girl totally absorbed in making a poppy-chain. Pamela is our fifth monthly winner and will be entered into the grand final later this year.
Arctic photo competition launched (20 August 2015)
Ahead of the series of special talks and short films organised by Arctic Encounters in Leeds in November, we are looking for a photo and short description (max 40 words) that together depict a special Moment enjoyed in the world's northernmost regions, be it within the Arctic Circle or somewhere commonly perceived as having an Arctic-related culture, such as Iceland or the Faroe Islands. The closing date for our Arctic Moments Competition is 30 September 2015 and the winner will receive a £250 Inntravel holiday voucher. We wish you the best of luck!
July's photo of the month (14 August 2015)
This month's Slow Moments photography competition was judged by art photographer Linda Lashford, who selected Jody Holyoake's atmospheric depiction of a man 'Deep in Thought' in front of a Christmas merry-go-round in London's Leicester Square. Jody is the fourth monthly winner in our competition.
June's photo of the month (15 July 2015)
Selected by freelance photographer Val Corbett, the third monthly winner in our Slow Moments photography competition is Gregory Goldston, who took this eye-catching photo of a pony on Porlock Hill at sunrise one winter's morning.
Two new walking holidays launched for autumn/winter (25 June 2015)
We are delighted to introduce two new walking holidays for autumn, winter and spring 2015/2016. In Portugal, a gentle route takes you from coast to coast in tranquil westernmost Algarve. On Tenerife, a more demanding, but thoroughly rewarding, route leads to the incredible crater of El Teide, Spain's highest peak. At the same time, we have improved our existing centred walking holiday on Tenerife to give a better feel for the northern part of the island. We've also made changes to our hotel-to-hotel walk on Madeira, so that it serves as an even better introduction to this remarkable ‘floating garden’.
May's photo of the month (15 June 2015)
We received some excellent entries to our Slow Moments photography competition in May, so much so that our judge, accomplished photographer Paul Harris, named not one, but three, runners-up this time around. The winner of the £200 Inntravel voucher was Shuo Huang, whose photo (left) captures local fishermen making their way home at sunset in Myanmar.
Inntravel shortlisted for Food & Travel Awards 2015 (13 May 2015)
We are pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for this year's Food & Travel Magazine Awards in the 'Tour Operator of the Year' category. The organisers have been delighted with readers' growing engagement with the awards, having seen a large increase on last year's nominations. You now have until 1 September to vote, with the winners being announced two weeks later. Click here to vote >
The first winner in our Slow Moments competition is announced (11 May 2015)
We are pleased to announce April's Photo of the Month (pictured left). The judge who had the difficult task of picking a winner from the scores of entries that we received following the launch of our Slow Moments competition was Jo Rose of the Joe Cornish Gallery. As well as receiving a £200 Inntravel voucher, winner Gaz Williams, who took the photo one misty morning in Windsor, will be entered into the grand final at the end of the year.
2015 photography competition announced (16 March 2015)
We are now accepting entries for our Slow Moments Competition. Between April and October the Photo of the Month will win a £200 Inntravel voucher, and all seven monthly winners (along with any exceptional runners-up) will be entered into the final to win a photographic assignment on which they'll embark on our Grand Tour of Switzerland journey. To enter, send us your photo of a Slow Moment accompanied by up to 40 words.
The Slow Lane is launched (01 May 2014)
The Slow Lane is an online magazine featuring articles on topics as diverse as Berwick Film Festival, the art of smoking fish, a project to build a unique open-air theatre in southern Spain, and how to make hazelnut gnocchi. So why not have a browse and see what piques your interest?
