New UK Tour - Northumbria Explorer

As overseas travel is still difficult, this summer we'll be running a series of tours in the UK. As well as our usual Wessex Wanderer weekend tours, we’re launching our new Northumbria Explorer Tour. This will be a week-long tour of the highways and byways of the most northerly counties of England.

Our tour will take us from Weardale in the south all the way up to Kielder Water close to the Scottish Border. We’ll traverse Hadrian’s Wall from Cumbria to the East coast, visiting the Holy Island of Lindisfarne (tides permitting!) crossing open moorland on ancient drove roads that are well off the tourist trails. We’ll be staying on a number of serviced campsites and some semi-wild sites with minimal facilities.

European Tours 

Due to the continuing uncertainties regarding overseas travel, we've decided to postpone our spring and summer European tours until next year. We’re looking forward to returning to Portugal, Corsica and the Italian Alps in 2022. You’ll find dates below, prices and further details are on our website.

North Africa Tours 2021

We're hopeful that by autumn we'll be able to return to Morocco and we'll be running our Grand Tour and Classic Tour this coming September. There are still a few places remaining; dates below, prices and further details on the website.

That’s all for now. Look after yourselves and we'll see you back on the road (and off it) soon,

Peter & Jo
