Collett's was built on a passion for the great outdoors with its origins in the mountains. Our walks inspire everyone differently. The post-walk satisfaction levels amongst our guests are the same, whether they have been meandering in idyllic flower-strewn meadows, or trekking vertiginous trails in the high rocky reaches. Even at sea level, Collett's delivers - just ask anyone who has hiked our version of the Camino di Santiago, or rollercoastered on the Exmoor Explorer. The point is: the walks come first and we make it our business to know what inspires you, so that every destination we feature will be a winner for you. In these destination guides we attempt to lure you to Collett's by giving you an irresistible, yet real, taste of these beautiful places.

Wake up and go 'Wow!'
Recipe: take an overdose of mesmerising scenery. Walk in it till mid afternoon. Add the unique pleasure of overnighting somewhere spectacular high in the mountains. Drink, eat and watch the sun set on your amazing surroundings. Go to sleep, wake up, repeat.
Step back in time in slow, sub-tropical Europe
