French Alps Circuit

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful holiday. The Queryras region is fantastic, the walking was challenging but within our capabilities & we loved it. The accommodation was generally better than we expected and the food throughout was excellent. We would highly recommend this holiday to anybody wanting a wonderful walking holiday. Thank you!

Ring of Kerry Guided Walk

The Iveragh Peninsula is one of Ireland's great natural tourist attractions. It encompasses a 179 kilometre circuit from Killarney, via Killorglin, Cahersiveen, Waterville, Kenmare and back to Killarney across Moll's Gap and past Ladies View - one of Ireland's most famous viewpoints. We leave the tour bus route and journey along a network of ancient paths which weave between the main points, on the long-distance track known as the Kerry Way. During this superb week long guided walk we experience stunning coastal scenery and pretty fishing villages, such as Caherdaniel and Portmagee, whose beautifully preserved stone dwellings have weathered the coastal elements for centuries, nestled amid a picturesque scene of verdant hills. At night we get a taste of traditional Irish hospitality in comfortable B&Bs chosen for their good character, location and fine Irish breakfasts.
