Thinking of a Winter Holiday, South Africa is just entering it’s Summer season and has lots to offer to every traveller.

Resting at the coast of the Indian Ocean, sandwiched between the slopes of the iconic Table Mountain and the glistening sapphire waters of Table Bay, the exceptionally scenic city of Cape Town is in a class of its own. Some cities boast rich culture, vibrant nightlife, a cosmopolitan atmosphere and extraordinary architecture, while others boast breathtaking landscapes and extraordinary natural wonders. Cape Town is lucky enough to be blessed with all of these attractions and so much more. With its bustling harbour, world class beaches, top notch vineyards and its mountainous surroundings brimming with diverse flora and fauna, Cape Town consistently captivates the hearts of all who visit.

For winelovers, route 62 may market itself as the longest Wine Route in the world, but that’s definitely not all there is to it. Lush greenery and fertile valleys form stark contrast against the semi-desert of the Klein Karoo while towering provide an awe-inspiring backdrop throughout. Some of the renowned attractions visitors will spot as they follow the route are the winelands of the Breede River Valley, the majestic Swartberg mountains, the Congo Caves and ostrich farms of Oudshoorn, and the fruit orchards of the LangKloof Valley. You will then spend some time at a Game Reserve where you can see the majestic ‘Big 5’ during the Game Drives.

We have some great offers for flights and accommodation and suggested trips.

Never too early to start planning Christmas.  We have a great Christmas offer that would suit all the family.  Travel on 23rd December for 5 nights (4 nights in a hotel + 1 night travelling) and spend Christmas in the Giltz and Glamour Capital of the world.

You may think of Dubai as a sun destination but Dubai really has it covered when it comes to celebrating Christmas.  At a balmy 23-27 degrees, you can escape the high Summer temps and enjoy the not so crowded beaches.  You can still find that traditional Christmas lunch too.

Starting at only €1579 p.p.s, as well as return flights from Dublin, this package includes 4 nights at the 5* Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, in a Superior Room with Breakfast, private coach transfers and an excursion to Sundowner Dune safari with Dinner.  Single supplement applies

Pilgrims have been walking the Camino de Santiago for centuries, following the many paths to Santiago de Compostela and the tomb of St James. Today, whether walking the Camino for spiritual reasons, as a challenge or to experience its unique culture and beauty, the Camino is a trip of a lifetime, an unforgettable journey…

The Portuguese Way

Walk along the gorgeous coastal route from Baiona to Santiago, soaking in the beautiful scenery and experiencing authentic culture in rustic coastal towns. The last 100km of the Camino Portugués is the most popular section, starting in Tui, Galicia,  just across the Minho river from Portugal. Explore Tui’s beautiful old town, visit the hilltop cathedral and, if you have time before heading to Santiago, walk across the 19th century International Bridge to Valença do Minho, its Portuguese ‘twin’ town

The Portuguese Coastal Way

or Caminho da Costa is a stunning alternative route of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago. Following the Atlantic Coast towards Santiago de Compostela, the Portuguese Coastal Way starts in the colourful city of Porto and will take you to charming seaside towns and villages in Northern Portugal before crossing by ferry to A Guarda, in Galicia, and the heart of the Rías Baixas. Discover the wild Atlantic beauty and sandy beaches of Northern Portugal and Galicia, taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in fishing villages and feel refreshed by the maritime feel of our newest Coastal Camino.

Do the Camino your way, stop for two nights and explore or relax. Take a train and enjoy city break in one of the picturesque towns like Porto, Galicia or Santiago.  The whole area is steeped in history and offers the finest of seafood and wine to all the weary Camino trekker passing through.

Contact us now and book your own Camino experience.
