Walking – A great way to discover Jersey or Guernsey

The advantage of holidaying on an island the size of Jersey or Guernsey is that you can quickly get a feel for the culture, history and nature as well as the scenic beauty of the individual island, particularly if a knowledgeable guide is on hand. Spring walking week is an excellent time to visit, with the flora and fauna emerging in its fullness and the islands’ starting to also celebrate their locally sourced fresh food with foodie festivals also taking place.

These aspects are reflected in the walks available during the Spring Walking Week on Jersey and Spring Walking Festival on Guernsey. Each island has a diverse range of subjects – go on a food foraging walk in Jersey or take to the trail of the Guernsey witches who were burnt at the stake. Whether in the town or country, participating in a walk will enlighten and reveal secrets you perhaps wouldn’t have found out otherwise.

Jersey Walking Week

Led by Jersey’s accredited guides, there are a range walks which take place throughout the day and in the evening with the specific itinerary released just prior to the start of the event. Walks take place across the island and can range from informative ambles to more demanding coastal path rambles. Most walks are free with the exception of the ‘Around the Island Walk’ which takes place over 5 days and costs £25.

Guernsey’s Spring Walking Festival

Again, taking place all around Guernsey, the walks are usually graded as ‘Amble,’ ‘Medium,” and ‘Ramble.’ Walks cost £6 for half a day with a guide available as a PDF print out prior to the start of the event.
