Wight Walks

Explore the Island's countryside and coast with local experts as your guides – activities for everybody!

Get fit, learn new skills and help conservation! There are two different ways to do it. See the Volunteering page for more details or walk your way to health at your own pace on the IW Health Walks.

Before setting off

For many activities, there's no need to book - just turn up on the day at the stated time. Activities which require a reservation or confirmation beforehand are indicated. If you are calling from the mainland, the Isle of Wight area telephone code is 01983.

Footpaths and bridleways may be muddy in places, so always be prepared. Good stout shoes or boots and, possibly, wellies and a waterproof would be sensible. Organisers have indicated, as far as possible, those events which are strenuous or pose difficulties en route.

No walk or activity in the programme will be cancelled before it is due to start except in exceptional circumstances. Whatever the weather, the leader will be at the start of the walk, but may decide to vary the route or, in extreme circumstances, may cancel there and then.

Please take your litter home with you. Dogs, where permitted, must be on a lead. Please avoid obstruction or damage to verges if you travel by car to the starting point and park considerately. Thank you.
