Breakaway Adventures First U.S. Tour Operator to Offer Independent Walking Tour on Bermuda




Walking tours offered October to April – more info at


(October 7, 2008) – Breakaway Adventures, a U.S.-based tour company that specializes in walking and cycling tours in Europe, announced today it will begin offering walking tours in Bermuda.


“We’re proud to be the first U.S. tour operator to offer an independent walking tour in Bermuda, an island renowned for its pink sands, fragrant flora and turquoise waters,” said Carol Keskitalo, co-owner of Breakaway Adventures, located in South Carolina.


The week-long tours begin on selected Sundays from Oct. 19, 2008 to April 26, 2009.  For more information, go to or call on 1-800-567-6286.


Called a “pocket-sized paradise” due to its size, Keskitalo said Bermuda is also ideal for walking tours due to its lush interior alive with hundreds of birds and flowers, making it perfect to explore on foot.


 “A traffic-free trail spans Bermuda’s 21-mile length; we've split the itinerary into six diverse sections to offer gentle walks exploring every corner”, Keskitalo added.


The 8-day, 7-night packages – which include full breakfast and evening meal and a stay at the 4-star Coco Reef Hotel – also features a 7-day pass allowing unlimited use of the islands' buses and ferries.  Cost of the tour ranges from $2,983 to $3,529 per person, based on double occupancy, and also includes walking route notes and maps, transfers from/to Bermuda’s airport and walking briefing sessions with Breakaway’s on-site representative.


Bermuda is an archipelago of 180 islands and islets, the eight largest of which form the fishhook-shaped mainland. The oldest British colony, the island is accessible by air from many U.S. cities.

The Coco Reef Hotel is a 64-room hotel on a private beach on the island’s famed South Shore featuring 3-course meals with a fusion of Bermudian, Asian and American influences, as well as a heated swimming pool and tennis courts.


Founded in 1997, Breakaway Adventures specializes in off-the-beaten-path gastronomic walking and cycling holidays, with more than 200 trips to 30 countries. For more detailed itineraries or to book a tour, visit or call 800-567-6286.
