Discovery Travel are self guided tour specialists.
They provide walking, hiking and cycling holidays throughout the UK and Europe in a wide range of specially selected destinations for the independent traveller.
"In the UK we offer several classic internationally-renowned long distance self-guided walking holidays such as Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, The Pennine Way, The West Highland Way, The Cleveland Way, The Cumbria Way, The Dales Way, Hadrian’s Wall Path and the Yorkshire Wolds Way. The support we provide both before and throughout your holiday allows you to concentrate on successfully completing and enjoying your trip without the hassle of organising it yourself. Having expanded our portfolio of classic walks, we now also offer walking holidays along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, South West Coast Path, Great Glen Way, Cotswold Way, Offa’s Dyke Path, St Cuthbert’s Way, The Borders Abbeys Way and The Northumberland Coast Path.
If you prefer to travel further afield, we also offer some excellent self-guided independent walking holidays in Europe, including Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Switzerland, Portugal and Montenegro. For example, in Spain you can walk in the Alpujarras, The Moorish Trails of Valencia and along The Way of St James.
If walking isn’t for you then why not take a look at some of the great cycling tours we provide. From European classics like the the Rhine Trail or Rhone Trail to our newly added Edam Short Break, which takes in the best that Amsterdam, Edam and northern Holland have to offer.
Your cycling holiday can either be ‘Inn to Inn’ where you move on to a new accommodation each day, with Discovery Travel transferring your luggage for you, giving you the opportunity to see so much more of the country. Or you can choose a ‘Single Centre’ holiday where you stay in one hotel or inn, giving you the freedom to do as much or as little cycling as you choose, depending on your interests, level of fitness, and the weather."

COMBINED POSTAGE FOR THE PURCHASE OF SEVERAL ITEMS
Our internal shipping charge calculator will tell you the cost of your postage prior to your checkout. In most cases buying more than 1 item will result in cost savings to you.
- Small items up to 500g cost around $7 postage. Depending on the weight and size you will get 2 sometimes 3 small items posted for this amount.
- Most larger items post for about $12 and you will generally be able to add 1-3 small items at no extra charge
- Once you purchase products over 3 kg in weight there is generally, only a small amount of extra postage charged
COMBINED SHIPPING CHARGES FOR BULKY ITEMS
You can add smaller items together with bulky items and there will generally be no or a small added postage cost. Ordering items such as 2 bike cases may not result in any savings due to their volume. Ordering mid-size items like two fluid trainers together will result in very good savings though. You will get your quote for shipping costs before you checkout.
