Highlights on 10 of HF Holidays’ NEW holidays for 2018 can be found below.

NEW Weekend Challenges

For some, challenge is linked to an outdoors ambition, like simply getting to the top of Snowdon. You provide the will, HF Holidays provides the expertise, encouragement and patience. For others, it’s about serious physical challenge; at the ‘harder end’ of the weekend challenge series you can attempt to bag all 15 Welsh mountains over 3,000 ft in a weekend. Ultra-fit walkers do it in a day but HF Holidays thinks it’s a travesty to only watch the clock; throwing in a soft bed and great food for a couple of nights to make the trip a joy.

Or how about taking on the Scafell Pike Weekend Challenge and walk in the national park most recently awarded UNESCO world heritage status. The 2-night break from Friday 9 March 2018 is available from £185pp on a full board basis.

NEW Vineyard & Wine Tasting Walks

England has a growing reputation for its wines, ask any enthusiast and they’ll tell you that Sussex wines have been winning awards over the last few years with both taste and quality. Following in their footsteps are the Dorset vineyards that share the same geology and a similar climate. The vineyards provide lovely scenery for walking and the perfect place to meet and talk with the local producers themselves. Stunning Dorset downland walks, wine sampling, and convivial company! Price: 3-night break on 18 May 2018 available from £399pp on a full board basis.
