We baby boomers are an active lot, we love to keep fit without venturing into too trying and dangerous activities. Many of us haven’t retired at all, becoming self employed or free lancing (like me), have families to help out, babysitting the toddlers and much more. That’s where Headwaters new tours come in. Take a look.
With more and more of us having to juggle busy diaries with heavy work loads and increased family responsibilities, trying to find time for a traditional fortnights’ holiday can often be a real challenge.
It also means that we can be reluctant to try out something new for a holiday – the thought of not enjoying it is simply too big a risk to take when time is so precious. With this in mind, Headwater has created a series of gentle 4-night Walking and Cycling breaks specifically designed to appeal either to people with only a few days to spare, or to people who fancy the idea of trying out an activity before considering it for a main holiday.
These brand NEW 4-night walking and cycling breaks boast all the same winning hallmarks as traditional Headwater trips – meticulously researched, interest-packed routes; hand-picked hotels; great food and wine; luggage transported between hotels; high quality bikes with GPS route navigation (for cyclists) and 24/7 support from Headwater both in UK and overseas.
Electric bikes are also offered on all cycling holidays. The only significant difference is, rather than moving on every alternate day (as is the format of the longer 6, 8 or 10 night trips), on the 4-night breaks, guests will walk (or cycle) to a new hotel every day. To counteract this, Headwater has carefully designed all routes so that distances are kept relatively short (and generally on the flat) leaving lots of free time for exploring independently, visiting local places of interest, or just relaxing by the pool.
Enjoy the best of both worlds and if you particularly like one place, like for instance the lovely Alsace, you can always return for a longer stay or bring the family.
