August's photo of the month (12 September 2016)
So hard was it for Catherine E Inglis, the Yorkshire-based artist tasked with picking a winner for August, to choose a favourite, that there are three runners-up. Two of the top four images focused on wildlife, with the winner being this well-composed photo of a whale's tail disappearing back into the ocean off the coast of Iceland. If you have an evocative image, there are still a few weeks left to enter.
Italian earthquake (30 August 2016)
The earthquake which struck central Italy on 24 August spared the hotels with which we work, but has had an impact on three of our four Umbrian holidays, and we will provide regular updates to anyone booked to travel on these holidays. Our Olive Groves, Vineyards & Abbeys walking holiday, however, remains unaffected, as do all other Italian holidays.
Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the earthquake.
July's photo of the month (11 August 2016)
The image which caught our judge's eye in July's competition was this evocative photograph of a lone fisherman at dusk in Botswana's Okavango Delta. Anne Frigon, who receives an Inntravel voucher for her winning picture, remembers the moment clearly: "As the setting sun spread flaming colours across the horizon, a full moon shone ever brighter in the darkening sky. Gliding through the reedy lagoons in a mokoro, I hoped the poler in front was also enjoying the peace and tranquillity.”
Three Norwegian holidays introduced for winter 2016/17 (14 July 2016)
For this coming winter, we are pleased to introduce three new holidays to Norway: a welcoming hotel from whose door beginners and intermediates can enjoy cross-country skiing on a plateau overlooking the Rondane National Park; breaks to the island of Senja, where you may spot whales and the Northern Lights; and a thrilling journey between three Arctic islands on the Hurtigruten coastal steamer.
June's photo of the month (12 July 2016)
“A splendid illustration of how when we stop and stare the world eventually reveals its full magic.“ That’s what our judge this month, Carl Honoré, author of In Praise of Slow, said of June’s Photo of the Month, which was taken in Sussex by James LePage. The competition continues until October, so why not enter?
New walking holiday on Dominica introduced (07 July 2016)
With its lush rainforests and magnificent waterfalls, the small Caribbean island of Dominica makes a wonderful new addition to our selection of walking holidays for autumn, winter and spring, as does our rewarding hotel-to-hotel walking holiday through the volcanic landscapes of La Palma in the Canary Islands.
Inntravel tops prestigious travel survey (01 July 2016)
We are delighted to have been recognised in a highly regarded survey of holiday companies, which you can read about in our press release. While this is very exciting news for us, you can rest assured that we won’t be resting on our laurels, and will continue to work hard on providing the best possible holidays.
May's photo of the month (15 June 2016)
For the first time in our competition, it was a picture of a dog which won Photo of the Month – our judge was drawn by its inquisitive expression. Christine Roe, who has been a runner-up in the past, wins an Inntravel voucher and could win a walking holiday in the Black Forest in the grand final. How to enter >
April's photo of the month (16 May 2016)
Our judge's favourite photo in April's competition was this atmospheric picture of dark clouds gathered above the Howgills in Yorkshire. Our congratulations go to Alex Johnson, who wins a £200 Inntravel voucher and will be entered into the grand final later in the year. How to enter >
2016 photography competition announced (10 March 2016)
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 take A Walk in the Black Forest with a companion. To enter, send us your photo of a Slow Moment accompanied by up to 40 words.
SlowMotion: a new brochure for the new year (02 January 2016)
We are delighted to introduce SlowMotion, a new collection of adventures amid the most beautiful corners of Europe and Morocco. They share many of the hallmarks of our other holidays – you travel independently, staying in hand-picked accommodation of character while using our detailed notes to explore and get to know the area – but you journey from one enchanting location to the next by train, boat and/or car for a very relaxing and memorable holiday.
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?
