Worldwide walking holidays prove popular for 2010
HF Holidays, the UK’s largest walking and leisure activity holidays company, is highlighting the success – despite recession, BA strikes and ash-clouds – of its expanded Worldwide programme, reporting sales up almost ten per cent on 2009, making this the best year ever for walking holidays in destinations as diverse as Bhutan and Patagonia.
The 16-day Colours of Brazil guided walking and sightseeing holiday - an example of a new itinerary for 2010 - combines easy city walks with part-day coastal, gorge and rainforest walks.
Highlights include Rio de Janeiro – taking in Sugar Loaf Mountain, Tijuca Forest National Park and Copacabana beach – the amazing Iguazu Falls and the gorges and canyons of the Chapada Diamantina National Park.
There’s also a walking tour of the city of Salvador – which fuses African, European and native Brazilian cultures – as well as walking on the Marau Peninsula taking in its rainforest, outstanding beaches and the islands of Camamu Bay.
The next departure is 14 October, with a land-only cost of £2350 per person or £3075 inclusive of return Heathrow flights – saving £100 on brochure prices.
These twin-share prices include 13 nights’ mainly half-board hotel accommodation, a full programme of guided walks and excursions, internal flights, travel by coach/minivan, jeep and ferry, sightseeing and entrance fees and the services of local guides and an HF Holidays’ leader.
