Walk this way! The Isle of Wight Walking Festival returns in Spring and Autumn 2024. The Spring Walking Festival will be from Saturday 11th May to Sunday 19th May and the Autumn Walking Festival will be from Saturday 5th October to Sunday 13th October. 

An event for keen hikers, relaxed wanderers, and curious explorers alike, the Isle of Wight 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 Isle of Wight 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 variety 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 will be themed walks too.

Over half the Isle of Wight is an Isle of Wight National Landscape (formerly known as Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the Island is a UNESCO Bisosphere 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, why not grab your gear and explore the Island.
