Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Malta: Self-Guided Walking Holidays and Small Group Adventures

Sitting virtually in the middle of the Mediterranean are the stunning Maltese Islands. Lying 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa, the archipelago consists of three islands; Malta, Gozo and Comino.

Malta is the largest of the islands and also the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural while Comino, the smallest of the trio, is largely uninhabited.

Travellers to Malta, as well as its 400,000+ inhabitants, can enjoy year round sunny weather, attractive beaches, superb walking trails as well as 7,000 years of intriguing history.

In fact the islands have been described by many as an open-air museum. Walkers will enjoy ample time to appreciate the countryside dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, while in the towns and villages you’ll wander narrow meandering streets towards the main square, which is usually dominated by a huge baroque church.
