The vacation was brilliant. Activity balanced with proper relaxation. We have come back really rejuvenated. Craig and Xania (and Zora-the dog) work very well together to pull the experience together so you can just get on and enjoy your break. (more)Paul Irving

Tailor made husky safari in Wild Taiga, Finland
Amazing, fantastic, once in a lifetime vacation experience. We could see that our hosts had very responsible attitudes towards the environment and were working to preserve the local wildlife as well as providing really attentive care for their huskies. (more)Liz Booth
The most memorable part was meeting the dogs, steering the sled and the complete change of scenery and fresh air. The chance to sample local food (moose, reindeer, berries) which was mostly excellent. (more)Katherine Stuart
Husky sledding across a frozen lake just before sunset was the most memorable part of the vacation (more)James Hamand
From €1020 excluding flights
Iceland adventure vacation, Lake Myvatn in Spring
Memorable parts? The guide, Ingimundur, had a wonderful passion for his country and delighted in showing us parts of this astonishing landscape which I doubt would be discovered by most independent travelers. Tips? Each season in Iceland brings a different set of wonders. A one-off vacation, such as this one (which was run, unusually, at the end of winter) gives an opportunity to see an astonishing country at a time when it is more-or-less free of tourists. coping with the spectacularly...

Mercantour Park self catering gite, France
Excellent. We travelled with young family and would certainly stay again so cannot recommend it too highly. (more)ROSIE KELBRICK
A really worthwhile and memorable vacation: the self guided walks were well planned and gave us a great idea of the locality; the food was very good and the garden(s) excellent for relaxing on our days off. We were given a very warm welcome and a friendly stay. (more)Jon Nay
Amazing 360 degree views on the walks in the Maritime Alps and the relaxed but informative approach of our guide Mel. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped and the food which was prepared by Liz was delicious and varied. (more)Cathy Wiggins
From £420 per week (sleeps 2)
Accommodation in the Mercantour, France
It is the best vacation we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years vacationing in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
The Alpes-Maritimes and Mercantour National Park is a fantastic area to visit and we would consider this to be one of our best vacations. (more)Lourdes Roffey
We loved the autumn walking in the Parc du Mercantour, in fact our walk to the Lac de Negre was probably the prettiest walk we have ever done. (more)Mary Dracup
From £420 per accommodation per week
Vegetarian bed & breakfast in West Wales
Memorable parts? The area is offering so much - I simply couldn't walk and explore enough. After a long day, there was always time for a cup of tea and a little chat. Tips? It's a great getaway when you need a break from your daily routine and a stressful lifestyle. You'll have loads of space and a warm bed awaiting when you're coming back from wandering around or mountainbiking. Local benefits? Definitely. The area itself is very well-preserved and people are trying hard... (more)Hanna Leipold

I don΄t think that I've ever felt so relaxed. Staying in a simple (but clean and neat) hut in the jungle and listening to the sounds of birds and sometimes even elephants made me feel very, very, very happy and close to nature. (more)Camilla Berndtson
The whole experience of staying here was memorable, from the incredibly warm welcome through to the amazing food prepared by local staff on an open fire. (more)Rachel Morgans

Le Marche accommodation in Italy
Very enjoyable! (more)Cath Ernst
Everything was memorable!
