Welcome to the Guernsey's Walking Festivals 2017!
Two Walking Festivals are taking place during 2017: Spring Walking Festival from 20 May to 4 June and Autumn Walking Festival from 23 September to 8 October.
Over 50 walks will take place during both festival around the island, all led by the Bailiwick of Guernsey gold or silver Accredited Guides.
There are walks every morning, afternoon and some evenings from short to long and all day walks, easy ambles to more testing rambles, learn all about the islands of Guernsey and neighbouring Herm. And there is a lot to learn!
From Folklore to history through the ages, heroic tales to the lives of Guernsey residents and visitors, military history to the German Occupation, our stunning cliffs to our historic capital, all is revealed during our strolls through the wonderful countryside.
These guided walks are a perfect way for visitors to connect with the island – and for locals to reconnect with their island home.
