Joining a Pre-Planned Walk

There are three types of journey that we organize at Duende Travel. The first is a walk for a group of friends or colleagues, a trip that is limited to a specific group. We also organize walks for larger organizations, alumni groups or museum groups who share a specific interest. Most of these are accessible to anyone; all you need is an open mind and an interest in the walk. Whenever we can we also put together our own walks for individuals to join. At the moment we are so busy with the group trips that we are running in 2012 that there are no more of these scheduled but this will change and we hope to announce details of new trips for individual walkers very soon. These will all be posted on this page but they will also appear on the newsfeed page in the Travel Information part of the website.
