After months of hindered travel arrangements, your next holiday should feature the moments that matter most to you. Maybe you’re in search of authentic regional dishes, or looking to trek some of Europe’s best trails or you simply have a penchant for embracing new customs; whatever your passion, you can embrace it on an Inghams tour.
With the help of your dedicated Travel Counsellor, you can build a trip that is perfectly suited to you so that, when you feel comfortable to travel, you’ll have an unforgettable experience awaiting.
With an escorted tour you’ll have the expertise of a knowledgeable guide whilst you visit your destination, allowing you to draw on their experiences to make your trip the best it can possibly be. Places to eat, sights to see, ambles off the tourist trail – you can ask them for advice on anything, and with the small group sizes that Inghams provides you’ll always receive a personal service.
For 2021 there’s a real breadth of tours on offer. During the Grand Tour of Sicily, you’ll spend eight days touring the island and visiting its archaeological treasures whilst sampling the delectable local cuisine. The Sicilian feast in a beautiful rural estate is a particular culinary highlight of the trip alongside the boat trip around the island’s peninsula accompanied by snacks and local wines.
Further afield, the escorted tours pay visits to Canada, taking you to the heart of this magnificent country. Here, you’ll feel the awe-inspiring wonder of nature amongst the Laurentian Mountains or whilst flying over the glaciers of the west coast in a helicopter. There’s also the opportunity to wander through cosmopolitan cities such as Vancouver which sits fringed by mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
Sit back and watch the world unfurl through your window. A scenic rail holiday brings you through the most stunning landscapes with alpine mountain slopes and glistening glaciers for your viewing pleasure.
Experience the Fjords of Norway on a week-long trip that encapsulates the most magnificent scenery, stopping in the colourful cities of Bergen to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Listed St. Mary's Church and the famous fish market, and in Oslo for a day of sightseeing around the vibrant capital.
For refined travellers, the opportunity to step back in time aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is too good to miss. Revisit the glitz and glamour of the 1920s as you wind through Swiss mountains, enjoying an aperitif in the luxurious champagne bar or dining in the gourmet restaurant.
If you have a passion for life on two wheels, a bicycle trip should be on your list for later this year. Unhindered by schedules, you’ll see the things that are important to you in Europe’s most arresting landscapes.
The Portes du Soleil region, which straddles the border of France and Switzerland, is a magnet for mountain bikers looking to challenge themselves on its exciting trails or for road cyclists following the route of the Tour de France. For a more urban flavour to your cycling trip, you could follow the Danube River on a seven-day escorted tour, heading from Passau to Vienna or from Vienna to Budapest. Suitable for any levels of fitness, the Danube routes offer leisurely self-guided outings that start and end in historic cities with plenty of culture to get enveloped in.
Inghams’ walking holidays are designed to take you around Europe’s best hiking routes, from the alpine mountain slopes of Austria and Switzerland to the lake side promenades of Italy.
Head to the French resort of Chamonix to marvel at the imposing figure of the snow-capped Mont Blanc. From Chamonix, you can enjoy leisurely strolls or more challenging outings alongside a number of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, climbing, parapenting and rafting. Ingham’s ‘Iconic Mountain Tour’ is a dream getaway for walkers, beginning with four days in Chamonix before moving on to Zermatt via the Mont Blanc Express railway. From Zermatt, you will ramble along the Matterhorn trail and spend time in the museum learning of local mountaineering history.
