Trek the Polish High Tatras 6 days
A guided hiking tour through dramatic scenery before the final test, the ascent of Mt Rysy (2499m), Poland’s highest mountain. The walking will be hard but rewarding, the terrain tough but beautiful, and the mountain huts basic but clean and hospitable.

Follow scenic coastal routes along the Atlantic Coast of Portugal and be blessed with sun-kissed beaches, colourful and vibrant fishing villages and scenic routes through pine forests and dunes. The Atlantic Coast of Portugal offers some fantastic cycling opportunities with the tour starting in Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage city awarded best European City Destination in 2013, 2014, and again in 2017, following a relatively easy flat or undulating cycling trails along the stunning coastline, with stops in different villages and towns for a full immersion in the relaxed Portuguese way of life.
