Guided Walking Holidays in Northern Europe

Walking Tours northen Europe

Our philosophy is simple - to get out of the cities and into the countryside where you can discover the charm and beauty of Norway, Scotland and Iceland. Walking with a small, like minded group is the best way to explore them. We take the time to "smell the roses", not to rush through but to soak up the atmosphere. We are believers that the journey is what matters, not the destination! All our holidays in Northen Europe are guided - we are not there to overload you with facts and figures but discreetly share with you the wonderful places we have discovered during our "journey".

About gourmet food and fine wine in Northern Europe

United by their proximity to the North Atlantic, Iceland, Norway and Scotland share a reliance on fresh seafood and hearty dishes to combat the chilly climes. Iceland boasts unique delicacies like Hákarl, cured fermented shark meat, and Hangikjöt, smoked lamb. Geothermal energy plays a role too, with Lambaflaðir, slow-roasted lamb cooked underground for hours. Norway's cuisine features an abundance of fish, with cured salmon (Gravlax) a staple and hearty stews like Fiskegryte, combining fish, vegetables, and cream. Scotland's culinary traditions are rich and comforting. Think Haggis, a savory sheep's offal pudding, hearty stews like Cullen Skink (smoked haddock and potato), and of course, delicious fresh seafood like langoustines. While wine isn't a traditional focus in these regions, locally produced beers and aquavit (a flavored spirit) are popular in Norway and Scandinavia, while Scotland boasts a strong whisky tradition. Today, all three countries embrace international influences, offering a delightful blend of tradition and modern flavors.
