Don’t rush off, join our after-work get togethers.
Is it better to strike out solo or head off with a group? Which company should you travel with? How do you pick the best routes for your abilities? What kit should you take? There are a multitude of factors to consider when planning a walking holiday. Join us for Travel Geeks: Rush Hour on 5 July, when our panel will answer all your questions about where to go and what to do. Come armed with a curious mind, your burning questions and any ideas you’d like to discuss.
Top tips, advice, technical know-how, photo ideas… and a glass of something cheery. Our series of informal chats are tailored to fit in with your busy lives. Travel Geeks: Rush Hour is just an hour long, and offers you the chance to hear from our experts, share a drink and join in the lively debate.
