Adagio Header Image

At Adagio we understand that the only way to truly experience a place is up close and on foot. These walking holidays are all taken at a relaxed pace, indeed the name Adagio derives from the Italian "ad agio" meaning at ease.

There are no walking grades or strict itineraries, 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. And, of course our expert leaders will be with you every step of the way.

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 with the 'Adagio Plus', will be most enjoyed by those who are reasonably fit, possibly new to rambling, who seek a relaxed walking holiday.
