Journeys 2021

Covid 19 Regulations:

We have planned a full programme of holidays for 2021. The COVID situation remains an ongoing issue though and we are monitoring the situation closely with the top priority being the safety of our guests. If new regulations mean that we have to change plans for a holiday around issues such as accommodation or transport for example, we will amend the holiday plans where we can. We will keep guests fully informed. In the event of a significant change you will be entitled to a full refund if any revised plans are not suitable for you. Should we need to cancel or postpone a holiday we will refund deposits and balance payments made.

All Journeying holidays are fully inclusive of accommodation, transport from the starting point of the holiday (you will need to get yourself to the starting point), entrance fees and meals excepting casual refreshments and where half-board arrangements exist. To make a booking, please go to the Bookings page. We grade each type of walk by length and terrain covered so you can choose the right holiday to suit you. To find out more go to the Walk Grading page. Also, please remember to book early due to the small size of our groups.
