Bhutan High Trails

Just wanted to let you know we had a fantastic trip and it all worked out great. Our guide was absolutely invaluable and could not recommend him highly enough. He had a great talent for helping quietly and making sure everyone is right without making a big deal. He certainly had our respect as a leader and advisor but was also just a pleasure to travel with and getting to know him a delight. He is by far the best guide we have ever had and in the future we would actually look for trips that he was leading as we had that much respect for his quiet but competent ways.

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&B's chosen for their good character, location and fine Irish breakfasts.

traveller reviews

Walking the Ring of Kerry is much better than sitting in a bus all day just looking out the window. Walking gives time to really see the detail of the country - the terrain, the wildlife and the wonderful flowers in spring
