Highlights of the United Kingdom

Can’t wait for a new outdoor adventure but don’t want to venture too far? Take a look at our top active holidays in the United Kingdom. Explore incredible natural gems right on your doorstep with an active staycation close to home.



Escape to a lesser-visited part of the UK with a small group discovery trip to Northumberland. This secret gem boasts beautiful wild fells veiled in soft purple heather, and grand relics of a bygone era including Linsifarne Castle, Berwick Ramparts and the Vindolanda Roman fort. Walk along Hadrian’s Wall on our walking holiday to Northumberland to discover timeworn milecastles and turrets or pedal the width of England to Northumberland’s east coast on our Cycling Coast to Coast Tour

Lake District

As the sun dips behind the dark craggy mountains, soft rays of light turn the glassy waters of Buttermere Lake a glorious burnt orange and the lush green valleys seem ever more vibrant as they fall into shadow. Whether you choose to join our Lake District Walking Tour or pedal across the width of England on our Coast to Coast Cycling Adventure, you’ll uncover spectacular views around every corner you turn in the UK’s Lake District.


Discover towering limestone cliffs, secluded creeks and unspoilt golden beaches on a walking holiday along the UK’s wild Pembrokeshire Coast. Typically quieter than Cornwall and Devon, Pembrokeshire is a place where you can really get up close with an abundance of seabirds, colourful wildflowers and maybe even an Atlantic grey seal. Wander through bluebell woods and wildlife-rich marshes at Abermawr Bay and explore the traditional fishing harbour of Abercastle before joining a sea kayaking excursion along the clear, turquoise-hued waters of the Atlantic.

Black Mountains

Nestled in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains are the easternmost of the four mountain ranges. As you walk the Black Mountains and Wye Valley you’ll trek Lord Hereford’s Knob as well as Hay Bluff, taking in the stunning views across the Welsh English border. The Hatterall Ridge walk, meanwhile, leads us into the Vale of Ewyas and the 900-year-old ruins of the Augustinian Priory.

Orkney Islands

Teeming with puffin colonies and world-famous archaeological sites, the landscapes of the Orkney Islands are a must-visit for all walkers. On the Mainland you’ll find the Brough of Deerness, a settlement dating back to the Viking ages, as well as an eerie collapsed sea cave. Meanwhile, the Isle of Westray - home to just 600 people - is home to one of the largest seabird colonies in the British Isles, with puffin normally being spotted between April and mid-August. For a dive into the past, Rousay Island boasts an abundance of archaeological monuments, earning it the nickname of ‘The Egypt of the North’.

Isle of Skye

Renowned for its iconic sweeping landscapes and imposing mountains, the Isle of Skye showcases the best of Scotland’s natural beauty. As the largest island of the Inner Hebrides it has no shortage of hiking trails scattered across rugged, coastal interior. On a Walk the Northwest Highlands and Skye trip you’ll explore the highlights such as the spiky mountainscape of the Cuillin Hills, as well as the sea views from the Quiraing landslip.


Trek to the summit of this iconic Welsh pinnacle. Enjoy sweeping views across the peaks and troughs of the Welsh valleys, and towards the wild Irish Sea, on this quieter, and arguably prettier, route away from the main tourist tracks. Mind the sheep as you gain height, edging towards the top, and feel a huge sense of achievement as you ascend the last few steps to the highest point in Wales. 

South Downs

Dust off your walking boots and get set for a scenic wander along the chalky-white paths of the South Downs Way on the UK's South Coast. Fields of green and gold embrace the undulating hillsides, interspersed by clusters of organic woodland. Uncover the Bronze-age ruins of Chanctonbury Ring overlooking the stately grounds of Wiston Estate and sample delicious English sparkling wine before heading into the verdant burrow of Devil’s Dyke.
