Join us for the all-inclusive HIKING & YOGA + PILATES weekend with homemade hearty meals in Exmoor National Park with ALL EN-SUITE ROOMS! After a while, AAA LG is going back there again. Most of the photos below were taken in Exmoor by our members. Stunning landscapes, wilderness and tranquillity, rare in southern England, and a warm rural welcome await you on Exmoor, one of Britain's breathing places; and the glimpse of wild Red Deer or the native Exmoor Pony, are just a couple of the delights that make Exmoor special. Exmoor whatever time of year you visit you are sure to experience the full extent of Exmoor's beauty. Situated in the south west of Britain, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles. A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Where high cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel, and cosy pubs and tearooms offer delicious local produce. HIKES There will be a minimum of two very capable hike leaders on this weekend, both with extensive navigational and leading experience and trained in wilderness first aid. The choice of hikes will differ in distance and toughness and we usually aim to have no more than 20 people per hike. This ensures that the groups are not left waiting for long periods whilst the 40th person catches up. Usually, you can expect the shorter of the hikes to be around 10 miles / 16km and the long hike to be 16 miles / 25 km plus. This will vary according to the terrain and ascents. We are passionate about hiking and experienced navigators as such we don’t need to repeat the same hikes on the same weekends. YOGA Hiking and Yoga is a great combination, we have had a few weekends in the past and they proved to be very popular. Yoga can be fun and a very beneficial physical and mental work out. Any level is welcome, classes will be tailored and suitable for the beginners and the advanced yoga practitioners as well. Maintaining a supple body and peaceful mind is essential for our well being. All classes are tailor-made and with particular emphasis on strengthening and awakening the body in the morning. In the evening we will focus more on balance in the postures and we will treat our body to 15 minutes of total relaxation. “Health is wealth, peace of mind is happiness, yoga shows the way.” Yoga sessions will take place on Saturday/Sunday in the morning 7-8 and on Saturday evening 17-18. With an excellent location and great walks, this is the weekend for anybody willing to relax and recharge! FOOD AAA food quality has become well known within the Hiking Meetup community. We typically greet you with a warm soup supper with cold meats and bread on your arrival on Friday night topped off with a large homemade cake. You can enjoy Misha’s famous hearty porridge with fruits, nuts and honey both mornings topped off by a cooked breakfast, freshly brewed coffee and juice. The perfect start to a day hike, cereals, bread and food are also available. We believe your packed lunch is a personal affair and we provide you with all the ingredients for you to make up your own sandwiches, so if you want to make your own peanut butter and banana sandwiches here’s your chance. Fruit, crisps and biscuit snacks are also available. After returning from your hike scones, jam and clotted cream are available with your afternoon tea. However, some hikes might, if the opportunity arises for the cream teas and pop into a local country pub before returning. Saturday dinner is a group event; members will help with some of the preparation whilst reflecting on the day’s scenery. Dinner is usually served at 8 pm and includes a wide selection of salads with meat and a vegetarian dish. If you have any special diet requirements please let us know in advance so that we can accommodate your needs. (AAA aims for home-made healthy food, catered for vegetarians, vegans and anybody else.) You will need to bring your own alcoholic drinks in advance, as AAA LG is not licenced to sell alcohol. There is no need for additional expense or travel for a meal out at a local restaurant or pub.

Join us on a seaside walk on this Weekend as we take a relaxed walk by the water. Possibly one of my favourites walks last year... This route requires us to take a small ferry (£2pp - Not included) that crosses from Bosham to West Itchenor. The ferry operates daily during the summer, but it's small, so it will require a shuttle, not to worry there is a pub on the other side! Walk Highlights: On this hike, you'll be able to enjoy all of the sights within the photos shown. Notable sights are the views of the wildlife and boats, old and new moored and wrecked in the Chichester and Bosham Channel. We will also pass through some small hamlets that are now home to various marinas and sailing clubs. Altogether this is a peaceful and tranquil part of the south coast with plenty of mud flats and low-level coastal paths. HIKING INFO: DISTANCE – 22 km (13.5 miles) approx. We will allow approximately 5 hours for walking, depending upon the speed of the group and excluding any breaks.

All of that topped up with our healthy, homemade food cooked by AAA LG chef. We are going to combine Hiking, Sightseeing & Yoga. Spoiled for choices! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpJUT3AfjFw The River Severn (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_M48ANM3hAQ) (great video linked), the longest river in Britain, 220 miles from source to the sea. The Severn Bore (http://www.severn-boating.co.uk/bore.htm) is one of Britain's few truly spectacular natural phenomena. It is a large surge wave that can be seen in the estuary of the River Severn, where the tidal range is the 2nd highest in the world, being as much as 50 feet (approx. 15.4m). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKA39LQOIck As we are only a short drive from The Cotswolds Hills - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), we plan to have a few hikes organised there, visiting the small pretty towns and villages providing pleasant places to while away the time, easily identified by its mellow stone buildings.

It's the time of year when splashing about on the water seems the perfect way to cool down, assuming we are having a hot summer, and the river beckons every man and woman to relax in the peace of the flowing water and bird life.....This might, however, get occasionally disrupted by the splashing and capsizing canoes and chatter and drinking around the campfire. https://youtu.be/zmoR73nF5tE The River Wye is renowned for its leisurely canoeing and is truly a majestic river, full of wildlife and colour. The canoe trips on the River Wye, between Hereford and south of Monmouth, are regarded by many as being one of the most picturesque river sections in the UK. Our journey along the river Wye will be via a flotilla of canoes from Hereford to Ross-on-Wye (about 28 miles) over 2 days and camping half way. https://vimeo.com/98146354 The video is from a previous trips photos from Hereford-Hoerwithy-Ross on Wye Accommodation We will be staying on a campsite beside the river where campfires are permitted and showers are available. We will also be able to walk into Ross on Wye where we have some good dining venues on a Saturday night. There is access to showers at this campsite. However, the facilities are very basic! We are very close to a local venue and will take our cooked breakfast indoors on both mornings and possibly dinner on Saturday. Tents will be provided, these are generally 8 and 10 person tents, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish. But please advise in advance. Canoes The canoes will be open Canadian style canoes suitable for three persons per canoe. Life jackets will be supplied and you will be required to wear them at all times on the water. Helmets are available if required, however, there is little or no need for these to be worn by adults. Watertight storage drums will be available on each boat to store valuables, lunch etc. No experience is needed at all. As long as you are capable of paddling for about 4-5 hours over the course of each day. Full instruction and a safety briefing will be given prior to departure. The canoeing will be self-guided and not by the operator. >>Click here to join our Facebook hiking and activity community and keep up to date with events and photos<< This year we will be venturing further down the river, using a different campsite which is within walking distance of Ross on Wye and two new breakfast and dinner venues. GETTING THERE AAA events start and end at the accommodation venue so you will need to arrange your own transport to and from the accommodation. Members have been organising lift shares within the Meetup group for a long time and AAA have also assisted members to organise getting to the destination. If you want to lift share we recommend that you post a message on the Meetup “Discussion” page that is specific to this event. >>> Click on this link for the Lift Share Discussion <<< https://www.meetup.com/AAA-London-Group/messages/boards/forum/880374 AAA takes no responsibility for the lift shares and does not get involved with these private arrangements between members.

Cars can be parked in a locked area at the boatyard. After the briefing, we will be transferred with the canoes to Hoerwithy from where we will enter the river and commence our days paddling downs stream. After a day enjoying the beauty of the river and surrounding countryside and having stopped for a picnic we will conclude the day close to the town of Ross on Wye. The local pubs offer a reasonable menu at sensible prices and we will be able to enjoy the remained of the evening here before heading back to the campsite and campfire. Sunday Dismantle some tents prior to continuing our journey by canoe to Symonds Yat. Depart for a short paddle to our breakfast venue (as seen below) by the river for a cooked breakfast.
