Sark

£1895 23rd Apr - 30th Apr 2014 Tutored by - Clive Minnitt, Phil Malpas,

Just 80 miles south of the English coast, between Guernsey and Normandy, lies the hidden jewel that is the Isle of Sark. Covering 2.2 square miles and with a resident population of only 600, the island is about 3 miles long and a mile and a half wide and yet it boasts over 40 miles of what must surely be some of the most spectacular and picturesque coastline anywhere in the world. A visit to Sark is a step back in time to another era where peace and tranquillity prevail. The fact that there are...

£875 25th Apr - 28th Apr 2014 Tutored by - Doug Chinnery, David Clapp,

White Peak, Dark Peak - Landscape Adventures Sitting defiantly between the vast conurbations of Manchester and Sheffield is the magnificent Peak District National Park. The very first National Park to be formed, famed for being the site of the ‘mass trespass’ on Kinder Scout. Ramblers, not normally known for being activists, wanted to fight for the right to walk across wild country. Their action on the 24th April 1932 led, in part, to the formation of the National Parks and to the...

Isle of Harris

Fully Booked 05th May - 11th May 2014 Tutored by - David Ward,

The west coast of Harris has some of the most ruggedly beautiful scenery to be found anywhere in the British Isles; white shell-sand beaches give way to turquoise seas and distant views of craggy mountains. It is perhaps no bad thing that the weather here is cool and changeable and the summer months often made hellish by the West Highland midge. Without these discouragements the island would undoubtedly be covered in hideous high-rise hotels, the beaches smothered in sun worshippers and the bays...

Tuscany - A Heavenly Landscape

Fully Booked 10th May - 17th May 2014 Tutored by - Clive Minnitt, Phil Malpas,

Tuscany has been a favourite destination with Light & Land clients for over a decade now. It is a region with fabulous photographic opportunities – the sculptural cypresses, the picturesque, gently decaying buildings scattered - as if by an artist’s hand - across the softly rolling landscape and the beautiful Renaissance architecture of jewel-like cities such as Pienza and Siena. It feels almost as if five hundred years ago a group of Italians sat down and decided that they would make...

Norway is internationally famous for what Slartibartfast, in A Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, memorably referred to as the “crinkly bits” – fjords! The entire western seaboard of Norway is incised with these relics of past Ice Ages. The whole tour takes place north of the Arctic Circle; Northern Norway is still the “land of the midnight sun” we visit in late July, so this extraordinary landscape will never be in darkness. Our first base is the delightful university...

£980 26th Oct - 30th Oct 2014 Tutored by - Phil Malpas, Clive Minnitt,

It’s difficult for us to imagine now, but two hundred years ago the Lake District was thought ugly and quite literally terrible! The English Lake District was one of the birthplaces of our modern Western love of rugged and ‘wild’ landscape. Wordsworth, the great Romantic poet, and a “lakeman” through and through, lived in Grasmere in the heart of this beautiful region and through his glorious verse did much to change the public perception of the landscape. This compact National Park...

The second smallest of England’s National Parks, barely 267 square miles, it nevertheless possesses some of the most diverse and spectacular landscapes to be found anywhere in the country. Exmoor’s splendour and stunning natural beauty leaves an indelible mark on its visitors. Our journey will take us from Tarr Steps, a...

Although the country is made up of a complex archipelago, the main island, Isla Grande, which lies on an east-west axis is just short of 800 miles...

The true early origins of this highly improbable city are hard to corroborate as fable and fact are woven through its early history. The Venice we see today is a city that could so easily be a product of one’s imagination and this magical place conveys to...

Andalucia is arguably the most exotic and stunning region in all of Spain. With its remarkable architecture and breathtaking landscape the region has evolved into a wonderful amalgam of Moorish culture and recent Spanish tradition. If this rugged landscape could speak, it would testify to untold battles and conquests by both Moors and later Christian forces. This is the southernmost region of Spain. Less than 200 kilometers away lies Africa – little wonder that the Moors invaded and swept...

It wasn’t until 1873 that the two cities were unified to form the capital of Hungary, Budapest, and our destination for this brand new Light and Land tour. Each side of the river has a unique geography. Buda is high, hilly and gives wonderful views across the Danube to the completely flat Pest. The locals say...
