Walking back to happiness!
New Year, New hike, new you!
As we celebrate the beginning of a new year our thoughts often turn to kick-starting our exercise regime, to eating more healthily or to exploring a part of the world which has long been on our bucket list. The happy news is that by booking a Hedonistic Hiking holiday you can achieve all three in one easy step! Is there a better way to start 2018?

We still have spaces available on our hike in Abruzzo in May, in Southern Italy in June, in Piedmont in June and October and in Tuscany in May and October so why not take a look at the itineraries and get in touch to book yourself a place?   For our Australian guests we will be running free Information Evenings in February in Canberra (Feb 6) and Sydney (Feb 8) if you would like to come and hear first hand about the tours, and we will also be sharing the dates for our 2019 programme of holidays.

So, why not dust off those walking boots, start to get in shape and book yourself a hiking holiday you will never forget ...

A look at the Aosta Valley
This may be Italy’s smallest region but with the highest peaks in the Alps, the Aosta Valley certainly packs a punch.
For culture vultures there are castles, fortresses and Roman ruins to keep you enthralled, but the gourmets amongst you will equally love the fine French-influenced cuisine.
Read a Travel Agent's view of hiking in Abruzzo
In October of last year Claudia Rossi, Managing Director of Mary Rossi Travel in Sydney, and her husband Roger joined us in Abruzzo to explore its beautiful landscape on foot.
On their return, Claudia reflected on her experiences in this undiscovered part of Italy in a piece for the 47-Plus website. This year the Wilds of Abruzzo tour will run from 22-30 May.
