HOTEL XANDER ****
Tucked away next to the onion-domed village church, the family-run Hotel Xander has been sensitively modernised to a high standard. The en suite bedrooms (with bath and shower) are luxurious in style and extremely spacious, each having their own lounge area and tea/coffee making facilities. If it's indulgence you're after, the hotel is equipped with a heated indoor swimming pool, two saunas, steam bath, whirlpool bath and solarium (pay locally), fitness studio and boot room. Beauty treatments and massages are also available at extra cost.
All breakfasts and dinners included.
This trip is operated by our sister company, Headwater, who offer more flexibility so you can walk as much or as little as you like. There is no minimum age on this tour; children are welcome to join as long as they are able to participate in the walking.
Please note that if you are travelling on your own or there is an odd number travelling in your party, a compulsory single supplement will be applied. There is no minumum group size on this tour and groups usually range from 1 to 8 persons. Insurance details are required at the time of booking.
Our local representative Christine Barrington will lead the walks and help you arrange other activities, yet she will not join the evening meals. Something to bear in mind (particularly if travelling alone) is that there are no 'group' dinners in the evenings and parties tend to dine seperately (although of course you can request otherwise if you all wish).
Normal group size and age
Led by local representative Christine Barrington. Children can join if able to participate. Minimum age 12.
Walks are led by local representative Christine Barrington, making this the perfect husband and wife team as other half Steve guides the skiing groups. Christine's enthusiasm and local knowledge will lead you along a variety of hiking trails to some of the best highlights of the region as well as the most picturesque lunch stops. Routes are signposted and ideal for independent walking if you prefer.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Easy activities requiring a little physical effort for a short amount of time. Previous experience is not necessary at this level, anyone who is reasonably fit and healthy enough to complete a weekend walk will manage.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
Winter Activities: It's about seeking out alternative ways to have fun in unspoilt locations, you won't find standard skiing or snowboarding breaks here.
Where you stay is a crucial part of a holiday, and we have gone to great lengths to find accommodation that provides extra comfort, character, convenience and value. Five-star hotels won’t feature on the agenda, but itineraries guarantee a greater degree of comfort after your day’s efforts.
