At Adagio we really look forward to our holidays and with the incredible response and feedback from our first year's programme indicates you do too! We like wandering the backstreets, savouring the local food, staying in a hotel with jasmine around the windows We like strolling to remote coves and sharing views with other people. We don't like rushing around. We're on holiday, and we want to enjoy ourselves. Here you'll find holidays that we like, and we are sure that you will like them too.

Adagio is not all about the walking

Enjoy the culture, cuisine, hospitality and sights of your chosen destination with a sprinkling of gentle and insightful strolls. Of course, our expert leaders will still be with you every step of the way.

Adagio is our new way of walking where we slow the pace right down. There are no walking grades or strict itineraries. It's perfect if you like the quieter things in life.

Adagio Plus logo  - Holidays marked with this symbol due to terrain will be most enjoyed by those who are reasonably fit, possibly new to rambling, who seek a relaxed walking holiday.


Leisurely walking... leisurely sightseeing

There are no two ways about it; seeing the world from a coach window is only one step removed from watching it on TV. On our holidays we like to get closer - that's how you create memories that linger. Amble through a vineyard, then taste the wine. Buy your olives and bread at the morning market, and then eat them by the lake. Take the cog-wheel train up the mountain, then wander through alpine meadows, full of flowers and cow bells.

Walking, Strolling and Ambling


We believe that the world’s scenic delights are best explored on foot, and that rushing is never a good idea. Walking is an important part of the Adagio holiday and we are often asked how much walking is involved. This will always depend on the holiday in question.

Holidays marked 'Adagio Plus' indicate that due to the terrain, will be most enjoyed by those who are reasonably fit, possibly new to rambling, who seek a relaxed walking holiday.
