Tour and Trail Maps Go To Sea

We know that most people use our Tour & Trail maps for hiking and biking, for driving and occasionally while horse riding. Their strength, toughness, foldability and waterproof qualities make our maps ideal for all these pursuits.

Look at those magical blues! Paddle Boarding off Northern Menorca

But here’s a first! We received an interesting email from Oliver, a kayak, open canoe and paddle board guide. He uses our maps to navigate around coastlines and sent us a couple of photos showing how he does it.

Paddle Boarding off Menorca’s North Coast

“Just wanted to say how impressed I am with the quality of your maps, I use them to navigate our way around coastlines, most recently around some of the awesome north coast of Menorca on Stand Up Paddle Boards, (I guide in both sea kayak and Open canoe too).

Your maps definitely make life easy while afloat …

And here’s how to use your Tour & Trail map while paddle boarding.

Thanks Oliver!

Nearly Spring In Menorca

Walk Menorca Cales Coves Walk 30Menorca might not be the first destination you think of for a walking holiday. We find it surprising and fascinating. It has beautiful wild countryside and great walking. The island is full of interest, especially if you have an interest in ancient history, archaeology, geology, birds or flora.

And if you’d like to escape the winter, you’ll find Spring starts a little earlier here.

Above; on the Cales Coves route, Walk 30.

This pic (right) was taken on a coastal route (Walk 8) in the island’s south-east, crossing limestone ‘tables’.Walk Menorca limestone tables walk 8 south east
