Short break walking guide
2 MINUTE SUMMARY
We probably don’t take short breaks as often as we should and, if we do, many of us just plump for a city break. However, imagine swapping London for a few days hiking through dunes and coastal nature reserves in Suffolk. Or along ancient mule paths on the Lycian Way in Turkey instead of the busy streets of Istanbul. Nice is nice, but heading into the hills of Provence, enjoying a cookery class in the morning and a hike through olive groves in the afternoon is all possible of a weekend. Most short break walking vacations are tailor made and self guided, although some do offer the services of a local hiking expert, which makes for an even more relaxing get away. Stay in local guesthouses, be fed delicious local food, go hiking, have your bags transferred for you. Just walk. And to think – you might have just plumped for Paris.
