Mild Rover: Have Hat Will Travel

New directions for seasoned travellers

Savings on track with combined Euro hikes

Tuscany and the Amalfi coast – both in Italy – were the two most popular walking destinations this year for independent Australian and NZ travellers who booked self-guided hikes with Europe walking holiday company, On Foot Holidays.

To give us Antipodean amblers a bit of a boost, On Foot Holidays is offering a special saving when two walks are booked as part of the one European holiday.

Australians and New Zealanders will save 10 per cent on the cheaper hike when two walks like On Foot Holidays’ walking holidays in Tuscany and on the Amalfi Coast are booked at the same time for the same group in the one European trip.

Hikers can pair walks from the 34 baggage-free, self-guided walks On Foot Holidays offers in 11 countries across Europe.  On each walk, hikers select their own start dates from those available and stay at a different B&B inn each night, with their luggage transferred ahead each day so all they need to carry is a day pack.

“Experiencing places on foot and on your own really immerses adventure travellers in a destination,” said On Foot Holidays Director Simon Scutt. “This way, you can truly feel a place slowly, authentically and sustainably from the ground instead of just glancing at sweeping scenery from a coach or train,” Mr Scutt said.

On Foot Holidays’ self-guided walks in romantic Tuscany and on the spectacular Amalfi Coast – the two most popular products for Australian and Kiwi guests in 2022 – are ideal as a pairing, combining two of Italy’s finest and most renowned landscapes.

On Foot Holidays’ six-night Amalfi Coast route takes walkers along quiet, medieval pathways high above the sea, through quaint fishing towns such as Praiano, Positano and Sant’ Agata and past secluded beaches on the San Costanzo Peninsula, finishing at Sorrento. Including six nights’ accommodation, all breakfasts, daily luggage transfers and track notes, the walk costs £1090 per person, twin-share (approximately A$1963 depending on exchange rates).

Meanwhile, On Foot’s seven-night Southern Tuscany hike from Siena to Montepulciano takes in Renaissance hill-top towns, mysterious abbeys, ancient thermal baths and picture-postcard hills dotted with classic olive and cypress trees and rustic wineries.

Including seven nights’ accommodation, all breakfasts, one evening meal, one picnic, daily luggage transfers and track notes, the walk costs £972 per person, twin-share (approximately A$1750 depending on exchange rates), including the special 10 per cent saving as the second walk booked as part of the same European trip.
