I founded Shearwater Travel because I love travelling and seeing the world and I want to bring that joy of experiencing other parts of the world to my clients. Shearwater Travel is fully independent working with over 200 suppliers to put together your perfect holiday. We can book pretty much anything, from a long weekend in Europe to long-haul tailor-made tours, villa holidays to luxury hotels, island hopping, rail holidays and self drive adventures.
When I travel, 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.
One of the areas we have worked on at Shearwater Travel is to look for fabulous destinations with great walking opportunities. 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 for 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.
