Kokoda Track

From beginning to end, this expedition was perfection in all aspects of its organisation. Particular praise must be given to the trek leader Mr Lawrence Applebee. His dedication, knowledge and leadership abilities were instrumental in its success.

Sweden: Land of Lakes and Castles

In central Sweden’s heartland lies Stockholm, the nation’s capital city spread across 14 islands, each providing a different perspective of the city. Not too far southwest of the capital is a different world, where royal palaces and castles are interspersed with pine forests, open green fields and vast lakes. Exploring this region by bike ensures a full immersion in the subtle landscapes of its archipelago and beyond. With a relaxed pace there is ample time to swim in the refreshing Baltic waters, hike trails in manor house grounds and visit towns of pretty wooden houses. Concluding in Stockholm, enjoy the city at handlebar level and gain an insight into its unique topography.

traveller reviews

I just wanted to thank you for your efforts in doing the booking and to pass on how happy we were with the whole tour. It was fantastic, the bikes were excellent tailored to our heights, and the accommodation at some quirky places in lovely villages was just brilliant – places we would never have gone to otherwise.
The hotels in Stockholm were well located and also great value. The riding itself and the directions were all great and we breezed through the 45 km average per day. Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it and will definitely be using your company again.
