The slow holiday people
Established in 1984 and based in rural North Yorkshire, Inntravel is recognised as one of the UK’s leading specialist tour operators. They specialise in Slow holidays on which you can discover the lesser-taken path and take your time to enjoy the moment. Though they have grown since the early years as a family-run firm with just a handful of staff, they remain a comparatively small team.
As you would expect of a firm offering walking, cycling and snow holidays, everyone at Inntravel loves the great outdoors, and as many staff as possible get to experience our holidays. As a team, we know our holidays, our featured regions and our hotels inside out, and if the person you are speaking to doesn’t know the answer to your question, they will find someone who does.

Captivating coastline & castles of North Zealand
By day, cycle self-guided via thatched villages, white-sand beaches and grand castles, enjoying the extremely cycle-friendly culture and having your luggage transported, and in the evenings stay in seaside hotels and savour delicious fish and seafood.
If, as many people believe, Denmark is the world’s best country for bikes, then the enticing north-east corner of Zealand, the country’s largest island, is paradise on earth for a holiday on two wheels. It is but a short train journey from Copenhagen, where your holiday begins, but feels like another world entirely. Expect to find gorgeous villages of thatched-roof cottages, castles of fairy-tale wonder, and expanses of white sand backed by dunes dotted with brightly coloured beach huts, all under huge, wide-open skies.
If all this weren’t enough, you stay in cosy, hospitable accommodation located on, or very near the coast, and can sample excellent regional cuisine featuring, as you would expect, the freshest of fish and seafood.
The well-signed routes are largely on the flat, and not overly long, so take your time – call in at artisan producers of chocolate and schnapps, linger over a picnic of open crab sandwiches in the manicured grounds of one of the royal castles, enjoy a dip in the sea, and drink in the sweeping views along the coast and out across the waves.
