Active Adventure

This is a self-guided inn to inn coastal walking holiday for fit and active adults and children. Daily mileage varies depending upon options but expect relatively easy walking from 6-12 miles each day with little elevation gain. Excellent meals along the trail and comfortable and unique coastal lodging each night. No backpacking or heavy packs are necessary.

Typical Day

You start your day with breakfast at your inn or a local restaurant, your custom lunch is delivered to your inn before you depart for the day, taking only water, lunch and a light pack. Your luggage is transported to the next inn. You'll walk following custom maps and directions at your own pace without a guide or group arriving at your next coastal lodge or inn before the end of the day. You choose your pace and optional activities along the way.

Age range, type of group

This trip is great for couples, families, reunions, and solo getaways. Walkers in their 80's have successfully completed this journey, as well as teenagers. You must love to walk and explore nature to receive the most benefit from this holiday. It also helps if you enjoy eating at new restaurants, checking out local foods and wines, and meeting friendly locals along the route.

Sleeping and meals

You'll be staying in unique and comfortable lodging along the trail. Inns and lodges all provide private rooms with baths and many amenities. Most breakfasts and lunches are included and a wide range of restaurants near your lodging are available within easy walking distance.

    So perfectly organized! Thank you SO much for the detailed guidebook and help from our guide. I was particularly impressed with the luxurious accommodations each night. And the natural scenery of our trip was often breathtaking; we were so fortunate to be able to go on this trip. And what luxury to have our luggage moved each night and to have our car waiting for us at the end! So grateful and appreciative for this trip, and can't wait to join you all again for another slow adventure...

  • A terrific trip

    By Jeff on Sep 13, 2015

    I have taken several self guided hikes and bicycle trips over the last few years in addition to the active vacations that I have taken every year since 1996 (Coast to coast in England--biking Passau Germany to Vienna to Budapest. I had the time and desire to take a short self guided hike in northern California. I looked at one provided by a travel company that I had used in the past but it was very pricey and even though I was traveling alone they wanted to charge me the full price that they would charge two hikers.I was very fortunate to happen upon a review of Slow Adventures in the San Francisco Chronicle and called the owner Margaret to reserve my trip. The price was significantly less than with the larger travel company who subcontracts with a local vendors even though they stay at the same places. Margaret and I emailed and spoke several times before my trip. She met with me the first morning of my trip for breakfast and provided me with very detailed maps and hiking instructions. I stayed in great, but varied places. I plan on taking the Slowg Adventures hike along the bay in the future. Put simply it was a GREAT trip. I encourage anyone who wants to take a beautiful hike in the San Francisco area to look at this trip

    This was by far the best vacation I've ever taken. The hike was challenging, beautiful, and so peaceful. Margaret did a wonderful job with all aspects of the planning. I've been back less than two weeks, and I miss it already!
