LIKE THIS? WALKING THE LYCIAN WAY


Turkey’s long-distance walking trail, which stretches 300 miles along the coast from Fethiye to Antalya, links ancient footpaths and goat herders’ tracks into a pleasant yet challenging route which can easily be divided up into manageable sections. Highlights include a spectacular descent with views over Butterfly Valley, and the approaches to Kas and Kalkan.


HIKING HADRIAN’S WALL


As any walking enthusiast will know, the UK is criss-crossed with some of the most scenic trails on the planet. Prime among these is the route that runs parallel to Hadrian’s Wall, where big open skies meet rolling hills, interspersed with the ruins of Roman forts and occasional remnants of ancient civilisations. A guided coast-to-coast walk along the Hadrian’s Wall


National Trail is among four HF Holidays trips added for 2021, crossing the country over a slow-paced seven-day walk, with accommodation along the way. The trail totals 84 miles, with historic highlights including Roman Vindolanda, one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe and the place where a treasure trove of writing tablets were discovered offering clues to daily life, including a soldier’s plea for spare socks and an invitation to a birthday party. Plus there’s Birdoswald Roman Fort, home to impressive


defences and breathtaking views over the rugged countryside. Book it: HF Holidays offers Hadrian’s Wall Complete Guided Trail from £975 based on full-board accommodation for seven nights, including a quayside property in Newcastle at the end, with departures on July 2, August 6 and September 17, 2021. hfholidays.co.uk

LIKE THIS? BIKING IN THE LOIRE VALLEY


It would be tough to find an unattractive part of the French countryside, but the Loire Valley has to be one of the most beautiful. It brings together the grand chateaux of Amboise and Chambord with some of the country’s finest vineyards and family-run wineries, with sleepy villages or wide open countryside as their neighbours.


CYCLING THE COTSWOLDS


With so many newly-enthused cyclists having dusted off their bikes after years of disuse, now’s the time to be pushing British breaks on two wheels, with the added advantage of clients being able to take their own – although e-bike hire can be a worthwhile upgrade for those daunted by distances or hills. For relative beginners, it’s best to opt for a route that offers


plenty of excuses to stop for an ice cream or slice of cake, and Headwater’s self-guided trip through the Cotswolds does just that. Cyclists will pootle through quintessential English villages, from the honey-coloured houses of Chipping Camden to the stone-built bridges of Bourton-on-the-Water, and explore areas with links to the Saxons, medieval England and Henry VIII. Michelle Ventre, general manager of Headwater, says: “On this self-guided tour, there’s plenty of time to explore the villages off the bike, as well as an optional climb to the top of


Broadway Tower or a visit to Snowshill Manor.” Book it: Headwater’s Classic Cotswolds Cycling is a five-night, self-guided trip with three-star hotel accommodation, bike hire (e-bike upgrade available), GPS directions and luggage transfers, starting at £969. headwater.com
