Walking in Guernsey
Guernsey is a walker's paradise. Journey on foot into a world of valleys cascaded in lush greenery, secluded coves and wide white-sand beaches. Guernsey has beautiful scenic landscapes and history preserved in every nook and cranny and the isles of Guernsey are just perfect for those who love to explore. From self guided walks that trace deep cliffs descending to meet the west coast, to guided tours that venture through the pastoral fields and hills of the countryside, the island is adorned by breath-taking views, a colourful history and a vibrant culture; waiting to be discovered.
During Guernsey's annual Heritage Festival, there are several guided walking tours that cover various historical topics and points of interest. For the history buffs, go back in time and embark on an adventure around monuments and routes dating back to the German Occupation of the island during World War II. Lovers of the arts should visit the landscapes that provide the backdrop for island folklore or visit the beautiful panoramic views that inspired exiled French writer, Victor Hugo.
For those wanting to experience the more unconventional side of the island, there are a number of ghost walks that delve into the roots and origins of witchcraft, take a trip to the spots of rumoured ghost sightings and haunted derelict structures.
