Know that so many people care about you and wish you only the best. You have been such a catalyst and friend for travelers like us to have visited amazing places in the world we may otherwise never have seen. For that, we are deeply grateful. Kathleen & Martin Berry, Massachussetts. January 2024.
“Some of our very best moments anywhere have been spent with you and your own raffish gang in various parts of Italy over the years”. Larry & Helen Foster, Austin, Texas. October 2023.
Due to a strong recommendation from a friend who’d traveled twice with Adventureline, I recently had the great pleasure of a tour in Lazio/Tuscany. Ours was a very amiable small group from four countries. Martin, the tour leader and owner, was joined by his Italian guide Luca, and we had the benefit of their shared knowledge of the area’s geography, culture, and history with a particular focus on the Etruscan era. I soon appreciated why several others on the tour had been on numerous treks with Adventureline in various parts of the world. Sarah Scott, USA. October 2023.
Dear Martin, Gosh – it was 25 years ago in May that we first came walking in Cornwall with you. The sea pinks were blooming and spilling over the cliffs – I remember so well sitting on a bench outside the accommodations on the first day and you pulled up in your van and said cheerily “Hello, I’m Martin!” and so the adventure began. The Lizard geology – serpentine rock – what an amazing world you introduced us to and all through your appreciative eyes and perspective of wonder – from Bombadil to Strider all rolled into ONE! Later, the trip to France together was really special – cyclamen filled paths, walnut lined lanes and such good food! The Isles of Scilly, Cornwall, France – all wonderful. Thank you Martin. Maggie and Van Joffrion, North Carolina. Various dates!
This Amalfi trip was exceptional…everything from the moment we arrived at our lunch spot that first day to our interesting boat ride on the last day has been unbelievable. Such a diverse choice of accommodations, the dinners left me speechless (and overstuffed!!). Our cooking lesson was such fun. The lunches… all the wine…. And to finish at this little bit of heaven!! Can’t say enough.

A fist full of memories
A great recommendation as the Isles of Scilly were magical in their location, weather, walking trails, beaches and land formations. This along with a great group of hikers made a perfect experience for us. We did like the laid-back atmosphere which allowed time to enjoy each of five islands hiking experience. The accommodations, with views of the harbour and outlying islands, along with wonderful meals were a treat also. All in all a well worth while experience to remember. We do have a fist full of memories with all our Adventureline hikes. You did it again.

Highly recommend them
My wife and I (Canadians in our early 60s) joined our Adventureline guide Martin Hunt and four women (two British; one Australian and one German) for a five day coastal hike along the Cornwall coastline in late July 2017. Prior to our trip Martin helped us book accommodation in the small town of St. Agnes at the Cleaderscroft Hotel, a well-located bed and breakfast near several pubs and eateries, and a short walk up from a lovely cove and beach. It was a nice mixture of nationalities in our group, and we typically met to socialize after the day’s hiking was over with meals and drinks together… highly recommend them to anyone considering a coastal hike in the Cornwall area.
Like travelling with friends
Going with Adventureline and their clients from all over the world on a hiking tour is like travelling with friends. I already did a few hiking holidays with them in England, Scotland and Iceland and would not have wanted to miss a day of it!

Everything was organised with flair
Visiting northern Norway was a revelation. The trip organised by Martin Hunt of Adventureline was challenging and great fun at the same time. Walking north of the Arctic circle, swimming in the high lakes and the sea, enjoying home cooked meals and well as restaurant ones was a joy and delight. As always with Adventureline, everything was organised with flair and a light touch which seem to work seamlessly. I have been recommending this trip to all my friends.

I’ve just returned from a walking holiday on Dartmoor with Martin and it was not only immensely enjoyable but also an eye-opener. Thanks to Martin’s innate knowledge of the area, we were able to experience a diversity of landscapes that I for one didn’t appreciate Dartmoor possessed; from high tor-topped moorland to wooded river valleys – fantastic . The accommodation Adventureline had organised was first class, friendly and welcoming. This won’t be the last time I adventure with Adventureline and I heartily recommend it to anyone who enjoys communing with nature with an open-hearted but thoroughly professional organisation. Thanks y’all.

The gorgeous Cornwall coast
We had beautiful late April weather and varied hikes along the gorgeous Cornwall coast. Martin is a knowledgeable guide with interesting historic and geologic stories, always adding his love of and interest in the flora and fauna of the gardens, farms and seasides we visited in Cornwall. I recommend this trip! Kathleen Woehrling, Massachusetts USA.
Really good fun
The walking holiday on the Isles of Scilly was fab. Really enjoyed trips out to the different islands, scenery was marvellous. We were looked after really well and the group was great – really good fun. Lots of happy memories and I’d love to do another walking holiday with Adventureline….maybe Tuscany or Norway next!
Janette Diomede, UK.
A memorable visit to the Lofotens
Norway was a visual feast, a stunningly beautiful country, clean and safe and welcoming. Martin and his guides attended to our needs, and provided quaint lodgings and delicious meals for a memorable visit to the Lofotens. We can heartily recommend this trip if you are fit, willing to share accommodations and open to new experiences!

I am still raving about the trip
In October 2016 I took my second holiday with Adventureline. This was to Southern Tuscany (my first was to Cornwall in 2015). I am still raving about the trip to my friends and family. Everything about the trip exceeded my expectations. The scenery was beautiful, the hiking was exhilarating, and the food was phenomenal. Most of all, I enjoyed the company of my fellow travelers and Martin’s hospitality.
