We’re Adding Departures for Fall!

Great news! We have secured additional departure dates for three of our most popular Walks in Europe this fall.

Our Walks in Bavaria and the Tyrolean Alps, the Via del Sale in Italy and Portugal’s Algarve Coast all now have an extra departure added to the program.

The new dates are: 
Bavaria and Tyrol – NEW departure 24 September - 1 October 2017
Where Germany meets Austria, this is a Walk of Alpine perfection and fairytale palaces, with mountains in all directions, sparkling lakes and wonderful food! It is a Wayfarer’s paradise, attracting walkers from around the globe, who know it is best savored on foot! 

Via del Sale – NEW departure 1-7 October 2017
A NEW Italy Walk for 2017, the spring and fall departures are already sold out. This Walk follows in the tracks of the salt merchants of old, who traded precious salt for the riches they found on their way from the Piedmont to the Italian Riviera. Reserve your spot early. We think it will fill up fast.

The Algarve – NEW departure 15-21 October 2017
Another NEW Walk for 2017, our spring and fall departures have already sold out. The sea is never far walking along Portugal’s stunning coastline of pristine beaches, hardworking fishing villages and protected nature reserves. Travel with us to “the end of the world”, Europe’s most southwesterly point, Cape St Vincent.
