I founded Shearwater Travel because I love travelling and seeing the world. And wherever I go I like to stay active and in particular I like to walk. Partly because I love the exercise but also because it brings me closer to the country, landscape and people. There are lots of specialist walking holiday companies who put together fantastic walking trips, either as part of a group or privately. But more often than not when I travel I want to have walking as part of my holiday but not the whole focus.
At Shearwater Travel we focus on fabulous destinations with great walking opportunities. We find holidays for our clients that suit their holiday style. We can book you on full walking tours in guided groups and on self guided walking tours. But we also offer something that we believe other agencies do not. And that is we have found some of the best destinations for walking and done extensive research to ensure that when we book our customers on holidays their hotels are within easy reach of some of the nicest walking in that country without compromising on the quality of accommodation and ease of access to other sights and activities. This means that you can be as active as you wish. You might only want to have a few half day strolls, you may want to mix flopping on a beach with a few days’ walking or you may want something more strenuous. Either way, we work very hard to source exactly the right holiday for your travelling style. We provide you with details of guidebooks and maps which cover the area and ideas of literature, film and podcasts about the area to get you ready for your trip. The critical thing is that the level of activity you undertake is in your hands.
We work with over 200 hundred suppliers to find you the right holiday. When you book a trip with us you can ave peace of mind that you have booked with a reputable tour operator and have the full protection of the Global Travel Group Protection Promise.
