Walking has always been at the heart of our business. From Epicurious travel’s inception, walking has been an essential element in many of our tours from the Larapinta trail – which is more trekking than walking, to our magnificent walks in the Chianti region of Tuscany. As we have matured, along with many of our guests, we have gradually introduced a range of journeys that integrate some walking into what would predominately be culinary and cultural experiences.
Our walking journeys in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia and Bhutan offer a wonderful way to explore remote places and to discover the joy of moving through a landscape on foot so we can intimately experience the rich cultural and physical environment around us. Walking can also be a great leveller; it brings people from diverse backgrounds to a common activity that they all enjoy, and as a consequence many new friendships are made.
