London, England (PRWEB) June 24, 2009
There was international recognition in 2009 for Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, the walking and trekking holiday specialists, who have been awarded the 'Most Innovative Product to Norway 2009' by the Norwegian Tourist Board.
The Norwegian Tourist Board, in the guise of 'Innovation Norway,' commended the 'Cruise & Walk' programme devised by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, a successful joint-venture which proved popular with travellers last year. The product provides travel itineraries that unite the freedom of sightseeing and guided walking holidays with the laid-back relaxation of a cruise, taking advantage of the dramatic Norwegian coastlines and fjords.
Tony Maniscalco, the Marketing Manager of Ramblers Worldwide Holidays was pleased with the results of the cooperation with Fred. Olsen Cruises, which has brought about "a new and exciting product to add to our portfolio of walking holidays abroad."
He added: "The beauty of the 'Cruise & Walk' product is how your walking holiday will take in a different landscape every morning and end the day in the comfort of a floating hotel. It's a great way to interact with the dynamic Norwegian scenery - see it by ship, explore it on foot. Pretty much everything is included, and its flexibility appeals to those who love walking holiday activities. In the case of couples for example, one of them may choose the regular guided walks ashore, whilst the other relaxes aboard the ship until the evening, when they meet up for dinner: so there's something to suit everyone."
In presenting the award, Georg Hana, the Marketing Manager for Innovation Norway, recognised how this new partnership has created "a novel way to provide walking holidays to spectacular locations." He also noted how a portion of Ramblers Worldwide Holidays profits, via their charitable trust, are put towards conservation programmes which are essential for the future of cruise and trekking holidays alike.
An operator with more than sixty years experience, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays arranges walking holidays abroad to a host of destinations worldwide, including the UK and Norway.
