Design & History tours

If you are into setting your own pace, want to see some spectacular areas away from the tourist traps, and like good food, history & great hospitality, then some of these itineraries might be for you!

The accommodation we use in these itineraries are worth the trip themselves. They are a combination of houses, manors, large and small timber-built hotels and old coaching inns that have been transformed into beautiful, romantic or design hotels.

2020 - why not visit the new Arctic Baths in Harads, near the Treehouse Hotel, Sweden...
