Walking Holidays in the Channel Islands

The Channel Islands are that intoxicating mix of British and French influences, full of charm and character. On a walking holiday in the Channel Islands, stride out on spectacular coastal paths with breathtaking views. Enjoy cliff-top routes accompanied by the heady perfume of gorse. Stroll on the beaches of sweeping bays and tiny coves where the low tide reveals seemingly never-ending sands. Gaze offshore to castles and lighthouses perched on treacherous rocks.

Explore the history and heritage of the islands, which is evident everywhere – the coastlines are dotted with prehistoric monuments, medieval castles and defensive towers – and learn how the population survived almost five years of occupation during World War II.

On Jersey and Guernsey, discover coastlines of dramatic cliffs and wide sandy bays, punctuated with harbours full of glamorous yachts. Relax in the tranquillity of tiny Sark, whose car-free lanes offer delightful walks to breathtaking viewpoints. Stroll on Herm’s spectacular white sands, fit to rival any Caribbean beach. Visit Alderney, a peaceful island with great natural beauty and an abundance of wildlife.
