The Carter Company’s cycling, walking and touring holidays are authentic travel experiences, giving visitors the chance to discover hidden gems and local secrets as well as the highlights of historic Britain.
Designed with the thoughtful traveller in mind, their creative routes aim to show you the hidden gems of your destination, not just the highlights. Pedal, walk or drive through countryside and cities as you get to know the local landscape, culture, history and cuisine, and at the end of the day unwind in their favourite boutique hotels.
With over 25 years of experience, their speciality is their insider knowledge – from a secret traffic-free bike route in the Cotswolds which leads to a tiny church with rare medieval wall paintings, to remote tracks in the Outer Hebrides which roll down onto wild sandy beaches where there isn’t a soul in sight. They offer a range of gentle and ‘not-so-gentle’ trips, as well as a tailor-made service. Their touring itineraries, self-drive or chauffeur driven, are all tailor-made too.
All tours are self-guided giving you the flexibility to explore at your own pace and include accommodation, luggage transfers, routes on GPS, Adventure Handbook, Welcome greeting from our local host, 24 hour emergency number and bikes if applicable. Guides are available in some areas should you prefer a little extra support.
