A Guide to Walkers of all Abilities

The Isle of Wight has more than 500 miles of carefully maintained public rights of way, a network providing access to most of its 147 square miles of glorious coast and countryside. This offers an excellent environment for walkers and the perfect destination for a walking holiday.

Footpaths can be found along the towering chalk cliffs of the south coast, in its wildlife-rich wetlands and woodlands and along the river valleys that dissect the island. So don't even think about leaving Fido at home - he will enjoy the walking as much as you do.

Isle of Wight Walking Festival

Carnival trails, speed dating walks, beach & bar crawls and a non-stop 72 mile, 24hr round the Island epic… with over 200 walks, which will you choose? Save 15%* on return travel on foot or by car to the Walking Festival with Wightlink. Find out more and book your walking adventure now.

Dog Walking

More than 500 miles of marked footpaths and a host of sandy beaches make the Isle of Wight a great place for dogs to visit - with their owners!
