Walk this way! Lace up your walking boots and dig out your woollies ready for the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, taking place 9th to the 22nd October 2021.
An event for keen hikers, relaxed wanderers, and curious explorers alike, the IW 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.
This friendly festival hosts a wide-range of walks led by knowledgeable volunteer walk leaders. You’ll easily find a walk that suits you – whether you’re looking for a shorter stroll or a day long hike across the Island. There are themed walks too!
Over half the Isle of Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and in 2019 the Island became a UNESCO Biosphere 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 Isle of Wight Walking Festival is easy to get to, whether for a day or longer stay. The majority of walks are free – so why not grab your gear and explore the Island this October?
