Journeys 2022

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 except 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.

We are also looking at a potential additional journey in 2022 to Pembrokeshire, Wales. We would stay for 3 nights in a peaceful retreat centre, with walks in the beautiful Gwaun valley and out on the Preseli hills. We would visit St Davids - perhaps the most rural ecclesiastical setting in Britain - and the riverside village of Nevern with its early Celtic cross, ancient Ogham stone and famous 'Bleeding Yew' tree. If you would like to express an interest in joining this holiday, please email: info@journeying.co.uk.
