This is one of the UK’s biggest walking festivals and allows participants to follow in the footsteps of everyone from Alfred Lord Tennyson to Jimi Hendrix; on the trail of everything from dinosaurs to the perfect dawn chorus; and heading everywhere from Queen Victoria’s Osborne House to a non-stop walk around the entire 72-miles coastal path in 24 hours.
With its 60-miles of dramatic Coastline and more than 500-miles of well-maintained and signposted footpaths the Island has long been recognised as a walker’s paradise.
Walks featured in the packed programme for 2019 include both guided walks and self-guided trails. Most of the walks are free, although some walk leaders request a donation for their chosen charity.
The weather forecast is looking very good, so pop on those boots and get out there and enjoy the majestic scenery and fresh air the Island is famous for.
