Equipment & Luggage

Do you carry/move our luggage between each overnight stop?

If you book the luggage transport option then we will move 1 piece of luggage up to 18 Kilos in weight, transported between your B&B’s as part of this price. If you leave your luggage at your accommodation in the morning, it will be waiting for you on arrival at the B&B that evening. Any extra bags can be transported (at an additional charge) as long as they are pre-booked.

We also offer a storage service for extra luggage not needing to be transported for this holiday. Please contact us for a quotation.

I’m afraid we do not offer a luggage service on its own.

What do I have to carry?

If you are having your luggage transported, then all you need to carry is a small day sack to hold your waterproofs, personal items, packed lunch, map, guidebook and camera.

Client Feedback

You deal with the logistics efficiently and you use the most appropriate local accommodation. The maps and accompanying notes are brilliant. Luggage transfers worked like clockwork and our bags were usually waiting in our room on arrival.

Everything was laid out well. All of our needs were taken care of. The information on the Itinerary, especially with regard to meals, was exactly what we needed.
