What do we mean by ‘Slow holiday’?

For us, Slow holidays are all about taking your time to appreciate your surroundings. The views. The colours. The birdsong. The rustling of leaves in the breeze. The wildlife. Local flavours. The people you encounter.

These are the things that make lasting memories. They can’t be rushed, which is why our Slow holidays are for individuals, not groups, letting you enjoy things at your own pace, whether you choose to walk, cycle, explore by train or car, or in the snow.

Our walking holidays cater for all, so even if you just like the odd Sunday afternoon stroll, we have holidays to suit – for example, in France’s Loire Valley you can combine short walks with visits to châteaux and vineyards. Similarly, our range of cycling holidays includes holidays for occasional cyclists, and there is plenty of time to visit the places of interest along the way as you journey from hotel to hotel, following detailed route notes and maps while your luggage is transported ahead.

But a Slow holiday doesn’t have to involve walking or cycling – we also offer self-guided touring holidays and journeys by train, boat or car. And in winter, you can appreciate the snowy splendour of the Alps and Scandinavia on a snow holiday on the quiet side of the mountain, where you needn’t ski if you don’t want to.

Whatever type of Slow holiday you choose, you’ll get to stay at friendly, characterful accommodation; linger over meals of local cuisine; and discover inspiring places at your own pace. So pause to look at the flowers. Call in at that wayside chapel. Watch the eagle high above. Cool your feet in that inviting-looking stream. Or stop at the pavement café for a spot of people-watching and the local tipple.
