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.

    Our Guernsey holidays are available to walk April to October.

    The climate on Guernsey is characterised as one of the most temperate in the UK, with temperatures rarely dropping below freezing and a lack of cold snaps over winter.

    Long spells of dry weather over the summer months give great, uncomplicated conditions for walking as far as late autumn in the UK.

    If you're planning to make a short visit to Lihou island on the Portelet Harbour to Cobo Bay section of our itinerary, be sure check the causeway times here.

    By Air: 

    Aurigny Air Services, www.aurigny.com, Blue Islands and FlyBe www.flybe.com fly to Guernsey from various airports around the UK.  You can also fly from some European destinations.  There are regular buses from the airport to St Peter Port (20mins)

    By Car:

    We do not recommend that you take your car to Guernsey as using public transport is by far the best way to get around the island. Long term parking is expensive. There is limited un-secure on street parking in the outlying residential areas.

    By Ferry:

    To Guernsey 

    Condor Ferries, www.condorferries.co.uk  regularly operate between Guernsey and Weymouth (2.5hrs), Poole (3hrs) or Portsmouth (11.5hrs) and Weymouth and also sail from Jersey to St Malo and Guernsey should you wish to spend a Rest Day/s visiting another location.

    Arrival & Departure:

    Transfers from and to The Airport and Ferry Terminal can be arranged – approximately £20.00 for a party of up to 4 walkers.

    Guernsey Client Reviews

    4.7/5 based on 9 reviews
    The first two days were excellent - great cliff walks. Celtic Trails were helpful and I'd recommend them.
    - September 2019
    Celtic Trails put together a good package. We are an active couple and enjoyed the week.
    - July 2019
    Guernsey is particularly beautiful, sunny and quiet. Always nice to spend entire days outdoors, looking and beautiful scenery,
    - July 2019
    Guernsey was incredibly beautiful. Celtic Trails were very well organised, used great accommodations and provided clear instructions.
    - June 2019
    I love walking holidays and would do it again; the south of this island, though difficult, was worth the walk. The north side was also gorgeous, but more gently. Going off the 'trail' and seeing the small communities was a nice distraction. Celtic Trails was very responsive to our needs and helpful for our extra tour of Sark.
    - June 2019
    Celtic Trails were excellent in comparison with other walking companies. The accommodation was all 5/5 and we loved the scenery.
    - September 2018
    "We had an amazing time completing the Guernsey Coastal Path & feel very proud to have achieved it. Thank you very much for making it a great experience."
    - 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.’
    - June 2016
    'We enjoyed the coast, wild flowers & Guernsey - everyone was friendly & informative'.
