An excellent trip where the first half of it is very European (Dutch and Scottish Highlands) followed by areas with different wildlife. Coastal areas provided great viewing spots for whale watching and the views were great too! Needless to say the wine was very good so bring plenty of cash for this. Local food deffinitely worth trying!!
Weather conditions can vary on this trip depending on the time of year visited. The leader will always do his best to ensure the group stays together even when there are disparate abilities within the group.
A wonderful trip - perfectly paced, a great group of people, superb guides. We laughed a lot and there was a real sense of camaraderie amongst the whole group. Cycling, picnics, swimming in a freezing river, a cold beer at the end of the day - the perfect trip.
An absolutely beautiful country. The walking was fantastic, very beautiful, sometimes challenging and sometimes the group would be the only people I would see all day. The trip was well planned with interesting city tours, a variation of walks and the additional rafting day was brilliant. I will definitely be going back to see more.
Mountains, glaciers, amazing blue lakes and lots of trees were on offer in abundance. Keep a sharp look-out and you might see bears and elk but you couldn't fail to see the cheeky chipmunks and the ground squirrels. This is just the trip for the outdoor type of person.
