To truly explore behind the scenes, sometimes we have to explore trails less trodden. Crafting Self-Guided Holidays since 1985, we offer detailed trip itineraries and excellent suggestions for those wanting to experience the best regional highlights, historical sights and local culture, while moving at your own pace.
Travelling by foot is one of the best ways you can explore a region. Lingering in places of interest when you fancy soaking up the sights, sounds and scents of your surroundings – we make sure you never miss a step when it comes to finding the best hidden trails. On our Walking the Trails of La Palma trip we take you to Puntallana’s coastal path, where you’ll encounter citrus groves, avocado orchards and banana plantations towards one of the oldest churches on the island. To quench your thirst, we even enjoy a side visit to a local rum factory afterwards.
When it comes to Cycling, our Bavarian holiday’s take you beyond the traditional archetype of lederhosen Bratwurst and beer towards awe-inspiring nature reserves, ancient monasteries and enchanting story book castles, you’d rarely see on a tourist map. On our Cycling Bavaria’s Lake Chiemsee trip, you travel to the island of Fraureninsel. While you’re here, you’ll visit one of the oldest remaining German-speaking female convents, where fish smoke houses, traditional potteries and romantic lakeside restaurants pepper the surroundings.
Rest assured when you’re on a Headwater holiday that our self-guided itineraries are designed to take you off the beaten track.
