We work in partnership with the most experienced local businesses to offer walking, cycling, canoeing, powerboat and sailing on our tours, plus much more.


We have selected a range of local eateries that we know offer a delicious range of freshly cooked, traditional dishes and local beverages. We also know the best places to get a locally-made ice cream!
