Isle of Wight Coastal Path, England

April 25, 2012 By admin Hiking / Hiking Boots / Isle Of Wight Coastal Path

The smell of salt air, the waves breaking on the coastline, the sea breezes, and the small coastal villages have attracted many hikers to hike along the coastline during their vacation time.

One hike that has caught my eye is the Isle of Wight Coastal Path (65 -67 miles) in England.  The walk will take 4-7 days depending on your fitness level as well your choice of distance each day 9- 15 miles.  The walk features white cliffs, panoramic views, stunning coastlines, and more. Take a look at the above video. There are several walking companies that provide packages that include self-guided kits, accommodations and luggage transfer. They include Macs Adventure, Contours, Celtic Trails, and Wight Walks.

The Isle of Wight also hosts annually the largest walking festival in Great Britain each year during the month of May – 300 walks attracting over 24,000 people.
