We have operated guided walking holidays around the Cornish coast and on the Isles of Scilly (and in many places elsewhere) for 28 years now, and we were the first pioneers to run walking holidays in Cornwall. Between late April and late September, we offer guided walking holidays every month walking the very finest stretches of the Cornwall coastline and her pretty villages, the tidal estuaries and some of the high granite moorland.
The emphasis is on observing and enjoying the myriad and magnificent coastal scenery and the many beauties of Cornwall's nature - the birds, flowers & gardens, rocks & geology, skies & weather, the ocean - plus archaeology, history and the more recent cultures of fishing, mining and eco-tourism in Cornwall.
When we say eco-tourism, we mean attractions that are green, sustainable and well worth a vist occasionally - such as The Eden Project and some of the many sub-tropical gardens for which Cornwall is renowned. We know the best ones to visit at various times of the year, although such visits only tend to happen when the majority of the group opt to do so - perhaps if the weather is not so good for walking.
We provide a fully inclusive package in Cornwall, The Isles of Scilly, Dartmoor and The Cotswolds - which includes character accommodation, with full breakfast and dinner, 5 or 6 days of guided hiking (with healthy packed lunches provided) and transport to and from all walks.
In Cornwall, we walk Mondays through Fridays, with Saturday reserved for travel and Sunday being a free day for rest, personal exploration and/or acclimatisation. In The Cotswolds and on Dartmoor and The Isles of Scilly, this regime is slightly different - so please explore the various trip menus of our web site for full details.

As well as running guided walking tours in Cornwall, on The Isles of Scilly, over Dartmoor Ntaional Park and in The Cotswolds - we also run several exciting holidays abroad. Italy is a country we visit frequently, where we run walking and hiking tours in Tuscany, Umbria, The Dolomites, The Amalfi Coast and occasionally on the beautiful island of Elba.
In 2016 we are again conducting our exciting Amalfi Coast holiday (May), The Picos de Europa Mountains in northern Spain (mid June, best time for wild flowers). Then our dramatic overland 14 day tour of Iceland (late June). We'll also be visiting The Lofoten Islands in Norway in late July. In the autumn, we'll be back in Italy again - in Tuscany and Umbria (Most of October, almost back-to-back).
In between these tours, we run our Cornwall and other UK tours (see above, or website). Thanks for visiting us! Martin & Laine Hunt.
