Greentraveller's Guides

Online visitor guides connecting travellers with characterful accommodation, communities and cuisine.

Our guides feature some of the lesser known areas, such as Spain's Las Alpujarras and Greece's Pelion peninsula, encouraging tourists to visit in the shoulder seasons.

We have also produced guides to most of the UK's National Parks, as well as over a dozen Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and other specific destinations — as well as some of the most beautiful regions in France, Greece, Spain and Sweden.

Written by our team of travel writers, the guides feature characterful places to stay, local food & drink, visitor attractions, and low impact activities, such as walks, bike rides and watersports.

We also supplement the guides with professional photography and video produced by our experienced film production team who have produced over 100 short online videos.

Green Spain

Green Spain

The four regions of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country are like nowhere else in Spain. From the Atlantic coast of Galicia to the Basque border with France, the temperate climate provides a lush and green environment. Year-round there's a range of outdoor activities as well as cutting edge gastronomy, bold architecture and a proud heritage within easy reach of the UK.

Pelion, Greece

No wonder the Olympian gods chose Pelion for their holidays!  This boot-shaped peninsula that sweeps its heel into the Aegean Sea midway between Athens and Thessalonika combines wooded mountains, turquoise seas and handsome villages. Pelion is a paradise for food-lovers. And there’s plenty of things to do in the great outdoors, including hiking, cycling, horse-riding and canyoning.

Normandy, France

French but not quite French, Normandy is a truly unique region, a place with its own distinctive character and flavour. Since the Viking ‘northmen’ invaded in the 9th century, the history of this area has been tumultuous, with evidence of key episodes (William the Conqueror’s campaigns; D-Day) still to be found in the Bayeux Tapestry and the landing beaches around Arromanches.
