Walking the World with Adventureline
We have more than thirty years of experience and offer a varied range of expertly planned tours to choose from.
Cornwall is Martin’s home and this is where it all began, now over 34 years ago. Since then, he has explored further afield, discovering new and interesting places and developing exciting itineraries to offer his regulars – which are many. So although Cornwall remains (and always will be) his most popular destination, these days you could find him leading tours anywhere in the world.
Since 1988, Adventureline’s guided walking and exploration holidays have proved popular with adventurers of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds, because Martin is fun to be around – having a wealth of knowledge and experience which he enthuses about.
Informally, yet with skill and humour, Martin and his friends and colleagues reveal the complex relationships of landscapes, people and their history, flora and fauna in his beautiful home county of Cornwall and in many other enchanting environments in the UK and abroad.
Increasingly over the years, the local varieties of food and wines (and other specialities) have featured more and more on Martin’s tours. He always tries to get to the bottom of what makes any area and its people tick – and that’s why Martin’s tours are always so interesting and so much fun to be on.
Over the past 33 years, many guests have returned over and over again, becoming good friends. Our repeat figures run at well over 60% per year, which says something about the popularity of Martins’ tours.
Martin is always interested in others, so you will be appreciated and enjoyed too, for whoever you are and wherever you come from. Martin’s groups often turn out to be an eclectic International mix, which makes for a dynamic and fun group to be a part of.
This Month’s Featured Holiday
August 30th – September 12th
Having run four grand tours in Iceland over the past 6 years, we are again repeating our magnificent circular tour this autumn. By then hopefully, all travel restrictions will have been lifted. There are just two spots left.
Starting in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city, we will then head off in our specialised large wheeled vehicle that tows a trailer behind it with all our luggage and a mobile kitchen too. This 15 seat bus enables us to reach some parts of the interior that normal vehicles can’t reach, as there are many miles of volcanic gravel tracks to traverse. We’ll stay in a variety of interesting accommodations – some are lodges, some hotels, some cabins – but all are clean and perfectly functional for our purposes. We will also stay in one mountain refuge, with dormitory style accommodation, reserved for our group. My good friend Bjarni will be our experienced driver and no one knows his way around Iceland ‘off the beaten path’ better.
Luca Panaro, who some of you will have met on my other tours in Italy and Norway, will be our main guide, apart from myself. Luca also acts as cook on many nights and concocts very tasty meals using traditional Italian style, but local ingredients. Our evening meals together are a highlight of the tour – apart of course, from the incredible scenery and nature of Iceland.
Expect to see huge waterfalls, numerous volcanic features including steaming fumaroles, beds of lava, actual volcanoes and thermal pools, incredible basaltic hexagonal columns – and glaciers. Also, we’ll traverse the highest true mountain desert in Europe.
