When two are better than one Back to News
Thursday 08th September | Posted by On Foot Staff
Are you making up for lost time with your travel plans? Are those itchy feet wanting to get out on the trails for as long as possible?
Maybe you’ve considered making the most of your trip with two back-to-back On Foot Holidays. Especially if you’re travelling long distance to Europe, it’s worth taking a longer tour and maximising your time in the gorgeous rural landscapes. And as we’re all thinking carefully about reducing the carbon impact of our travels, it would be ideal to connect two holidays by train rather than plane.
On many of the route pages on our website you’ll now see suggestions for other holidays with easy rail journeys from one to the other – we’re calling them ‘route pairings’.
We’ve identified the best rail connections and how long they might take, plus some recommended overnight stops where appropriate – details of the best options can all be found here.
And to fire up the imagination, here are just a few examples:
At On Foot Holidays we are committed to encouraging the switch from air to rail travel whenever possible. On the ‘Travel info’ tab for all the holidays on our website you’ll find recommended routes from the major rail hubs in Europe (or ferries for the island holidays!), and our bookings team can help you plan your journey.
When you’ve booked any holiday with us, we’ll send you appropriate timetables for train, bus or ferry transfers for the start and end of the route in your Walkers’ Pack.
