Island escapes

If you are thinking about a trekking adventure somewhere mountainous and wild, a small island may not be the first thing that springs to mind. But when you move inland away from beach resorts and coastal towns you often find a surprising hinterland of deep valleys, high peaks and endless views. We have put together a collection of island adventures designed to surprise and delight.
