Path Walkthrough

Quiet country lanes and long stretches across cliffs and sand comprise this round island walk along the more subdued side of The Channel Islands. The route is primarily a coastal walk, however walkers can expect to cross paths with tranquil woodland and nature trails as they make their way towards the North of the island.

The North/West and the South/Eastern sides of the island have a different character, and you'll notice the change as the scenery starts to shift between the rugged cliffs of the south to the sandy bays of the west. The southern section route undulates more than the other sections of the island, and comparatively more coastal in nature. As you head North you'll find the going underfoot a lot more gentle, with nature reserves inland and flat country lanes.

August 2017

‘The walk was very scenic, beautiful flowers, but also varied with rugged coastlines & beaches. We like the challenge and the countryside is full of surprises and you can view nature in detail – it is relaxing and quite meditative. We both thoroughly enjoyed the new Guernsey Trek this year and we would thoroughly recommend it. We would suggest that future visitors take the extra time after the trek to visit the isles of Herm and Sark as all the islands are different and it was nice to be able to relax for a further 3 days exploring these beautiful islands. We look forward to another trek with you.’
