Real travel experiences and advice...

Outdoor Views offers honest reviews on pubs, hotels, attractions and things to do in the UK, La Palma and Vietnam. All information is based on our own real experiences together with useful links and information to help you get the most from your day out or annual holiday.

The website is the creation of an English couple who love to walk, travel and take photos along the way.

Whether it’s just up the road or miles from home, we enjoy exploring and always hope to find that hidden gem ‘just around the corner’ each time.
