Trip Overview

Tucked away in the southwesterly county of Devon, England, you’ll find Dartmoor National Park, a vast expanse of windswept, storied landscapes home to myriad myths and legends. On our immersive exploration of this historic region, we’ll experience medieval villages, sprawling moors, and Bronze Age ruins, hearing about the enduring tales they’ve inspired. We’ll scamper among twisted trees and shaggy sheep, picnic like the pagans beside rows of ritual stone columns, and duck into plenty of cozy pubs along the way—chatting with friendly locals and special guests to learn what makes this quiet corner of the world so unique.

  • Subterranean tour of Exeter's medieval water supply
  • Historic sites and medieval villages
  • Local expertise and insight
  • Storied landscapes and age-old legends


Itineraries and daily schedules are subject to change. We expect to do everything listed in the itinerary, though the order may be rearranged based on weather or other local conditions.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you: 

Shared Room (subject to the latest Covid-19 guidelines): You'll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.

Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $145. After booking your trip, please request a private room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll add the option to your booking and final balance. 

Activity Level

Travelers should be comfortable walking 3 to 5 miles over the course of each day and remaining on their feet for long periods of time. We’ll be spending a good amount of time outside and in rural areas, walking up and down stairs, in the forest, and on dirt and cobblestone paths.

Arrival & Departure

Our trip begins and ends in Exeter, England. You should plan to arrive in Exeter by noon on Day 1 as we'll meet in town at 1 p.m. We'll end in Exeter around 1 or 2 p.m. on Day 5, with multiple trains departing from Exeter to London in the afternoon. We do recommend spending some additional time in Exeter and the nearby towns, as there's much to see!
