Getting a good nights rest, is an essential part of any walking holiday. We won’t ask you to sleep in tents, on our walking tour you will stay at charming local accommodation. We know you’ll have a comfortable stay and a restful night’s sleep no matter what the weather.

We stay 2 nights at Cloudy Bay Villa & Cloudy Creek Cottage. These unspoiled hideaways are both set on private acreage in the southern part of the island.

Depending on the size of the group we may only require the use of one of these gorgeous properties.

Guide Barry was a sheer delight! He could not do enough for us. Helpful, friendly, and even his puns and singing were welcomed! He went out of his way to look after us. I could not give him enough praise - thanks Barry! Meals were unbelievably good. Well and truly exceeded expectations! Salmon, oysters, cheeses, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, ragout, omelette - great chef Barry and great suppliers! And, of course, the wine :) and the tastings . Accommodation was excellent - well-appointed, comfortable, great location. Tour above expectations - Have mainly done unguided hikes, but this walk confirmed that Life's An Adventure is the way to go. Really could not fault it for a mix of walking and gourmet experience. Barry also made sure that we kept to time, but we were never hurried
