Walking

Rugged cliffs, gentle rolling hills, picturesque glens, hidden coves and stunning views. These are just a few of the reasons that make the Isle of Man a walker's delight. Whether you enjoy a gentle stroll or a challenging hike, there is a range of footpaths and tracks for you to enjoy.

Would you like to walk around the coast of an entire country? The Raad Ny Foillan, the coastal footpath, is a challenging 100 mile walk. The views and wildlife are so stunning though that you may prefer to take a leisurely, but still strenuous, walk along just a section or two.

Walking on the Isle of Man though is not just about challenging walks. There are hidden coves accessible only by foot, stunning glens just a few minutes walk from a road, deserted beaches, rolling hills, desolated moors and a feeling of remoteness coupled with some of the most beautiful scenery in the United Kingdom.

If you enjoy walking with friends, then the Isle of Man Walking Festival could be an ideal destination for you. A complete walking holiday package; a variety of guided walks to suit all levels of ability together with evening entertainment.

The above video shows a walk from Port St Mary to Port Erin on the Isle of Man, from Walks Around Britain.

Walking is a very popular pastime on the Isle of Man and the Manx Footpaths Conservation Group extends a warm welcome to all visitors. The group is affiliated to The Ramblers and offers a great variety of walks throughout the year.
