1. Tallinn, Estonia "Wellness activity and experience... Walking in the woods with three labradors."

Lastminute.com reviewer Eda adds, "It was very good weather and overall it was brilliant. Wellness activity and experience: Walking in the woods with three labradors. Places you saw: We visited Paldiski and had a lunch in Peetri Toll Tavern, all food was delicious! Keila-Joa waterfall was lovely, locals tell me the best pics are taken in early [s]pring and winter. All the park around seemed very well maintained and works still in [p]rogress. Wellness activity and experience: Walking in the woods with three labradors. Like most in trip: Relaxed atmosphere."

2. Carcassonne, France "Many walking opportunities with tracks into the forest and mountains."

Lastminute.com reviewer Carolind says, "Saw Pyrenees Occidentales... Wonderful for cycling, as there is virtually no traffic. Quillan worth a visit. Vibrant and pretty. Many walking opportunities with tracks into the forest and mountains. Wild thyme everywhere, much happy birdsong and church bells to tell you the time. Not many other sounds. Pretty idyllic. I liked: Discovering a new place that I knew very little about. Carcassonne airport is very manageable. Tiny, with very friendly staff. A pleasant surprise."

3. Bremen-DE, Germany "[A] massive forest which was nice to walk around and get lost in."

Lastminute.com reviewer James adds, "Around the city centre, there are several supermarkets which are reasonably priced and well cooled! The public transport is also reasonably priced, which allows you to get a bit out of the city centre quite easily, and the trams are air-conditioned... The stadtwald (city forest) and stadtwaldsee (the associated lake) is great to wander around and go swimming in, though it was a bit surprising to find there was a naturist area of the beach — common in [G]ermany. Sightseeing places: I walked around the old town area around the cathedral and town halls, which is nice and had a market setting up in it. I also went out to the stadtwald which has a lovely swimming lake in it, clearly well loved by the locals, as well as a massive forest which was nice to walk around and get lost in. Self-experience: Sheltering from the weather by walking around the stadtwald, which was lovely as I didn't expect it when I booked to go. I liked: Swimming in the lake."
