NEW for 2018 – Asturias (a 7-night cultural journey by rail through northern Spain)

Behind all this lie the wild and remote Picos de Europa mountains and, somewhere in between, meanders the FEVE, a narrow-gauge railway whose trains chug faithfully along through a bucolic and astonishingly green landscape, providing the perfect means of transport for the curious and insouciant traveller.

This enchanting and very gastronomic holiday will introduce you to one of Italy’s most alluring and little-known landscapes, the Langhe...

Belle Epoque Hotel Victoria, Kandersteg (Grade 2-3, a 3-night self-guided walking holiday)

Arguably one of Switzerland's most exquisite lakes, emerald Oeschinensee is one of the jewels of the Bernese Oberland, set in an amphitheatre of mountains which at points rise sheer from the water. In the valley below nestles the picture-book village of Kandersteg, whose inspirational mountain views are more than enough to tempt you onto the many well-marked paths which explore the broad Kander Valley, its various spurs, and the mountains above.
 


Rohan Women's Outland Jacket

Taking its styling from the North American parka, the Outland Jacket refines the concept with its longer length, large-capacity pockets, hand-warmer pockets and a rip-stop, waterproof fabric. It gives you all the high-performance and comfort of a Rohan outdoor shell, but has been carefully designed to not to be heavy and bulky like other traditional parka-style jackets. We have two Outland jackets on offer - one for the morning session and one for the afternoon.
