If the Annapurna circuit is Everest’s entrée, then the Ghandruk loop is the hors d’oeuvre! A tantalizing morsel; not too heavy, not too light. Challenging, and yet accessible to anyone with an average degree of fitness and a willingness to take it slow. The perfect introduction to hiking in the Himalayas!
In a city where a single course could easily set you back a day’s wage, the supper club represents fantastic value, and truly is one of the best ways to get the real story from a local’s perspective. Gabriel’s Water House Project is a project of culinary exploration, communal bonding, and ultimately of shared values.

It was only 7 days, but we learnt so much about the village of Vavla, Cyprus. The land, the food and the community…we even learnt a little bit about ourselves. Let us show you why Vavla is the perfect place to start your exploration of this incredible country!
If you have even a passing interest in the landscape around you, and you know you’ll have some time on the Isle of Skye, this is one hike that you must put before all others. We left absolutely exhilarated by what we had experienced, and we thoroughly recommend adding it to your Isle of Skye itinerary!
Vavla may get overshadowed by its more famous neighbour, but we spent the most amazing seven days in this little gem of a village and we know you will too. Don’t tell anyone, but…we think it’s actually better! Can you handle the relaxation?!
