About Compass Holidays

Compass Holidays specialise in walking and cycling short breaks and holidays around the UK and Europe. Founded over 20 years ago, our vast expertise means we know how to plan holidays to highlight the very best the countryside has to offer. Compass has also just launched a series of bike & boat tours around some of Italy's most breathtaking coastline.

A unique and active holiday with Compass allows you to get under the skin of the history, culture and natural beauty of some of the UK and Europe's most iconic and stunning locations.

Not only this, Compass will organise your holiday for you so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy your time away. Simply choose your activity, destination, dates and numbers and leave the rest to us. Want to know more about the quality of our service? Here's what our clients have to say....

Cross Country Ski along the Italian Dolomites

Want to explore the Italian Dolomites a little differently' Compass Holidays offer a self guided cross country skiing tour which takes you into the heart of the Italian Dolomites. A little different to skiing down slope, cross-country skiing takes you off the beaten track and gives you a chance to explore what exists beyond the slopes. With ski season fast approaching, contact us for more information.

Highlights of Cross Country Skiing:

This tour is available from January through to March and the price includes half board accommodation and full ski hire. Extra nights and ski lessons are also available to be booked on request. For more information, please visit our website or call us on 01242 250642 to make a booking.
