With many guided walks taking place in October, right across the Isle of Wight, keep an eye on visit Isle of Wight Walking Festival for routes.

An event for keen hikers, relaxed wanderers, and curious explorers alike, the Isle of Wight Walking Festival is a friendly coming together in the great outdoors for all ages, offering a chance to meet new people, learn and discover the many wonders of the Wight.

With a plethora of routes on offer to suit all abilities, the IW Walking Festival is an inclusive event providing a guided tour through the Island’s varied landscape, thriving wildlife and rich heritage.

Whether you enjoy a stroll along the flat with a pit-stop at the pub, a jaunt through the countryside with your four-legged friend or like to test your mettle against leg burning inclines (of which the Island has many), the IW Walking Festival offers something for everyone. 

Over half of the Isle of Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and in 2019 the Island became a UNESCO Bisosphere Reserve. Add 500 miles of well-maintained and signposted footpaths and you'll see why the Isle of Wight is the perfect place for a walking festival. 

The majority of walks are free, why not grab your gear and explore the Island in October 2022.
