Isle of Man Walking Holiday

Walk the 95-mile long Raad Ny Foillan: The Way of the Gull coastal walk!

The Isle of Man is a veritable paradise for walkers, and has the added benefit of being served by thirteen airports and five ferry ports in the UK and Ireland - making it easily accessible! 

The Island's many miles of walking trails give the opportunity to see at close quarters those hidden gems that you might miss if travelling by car.  There are pretty glens, quiet country lanes, spectacular waterfalls and deserted coves all waiting to be discovered, as well as historic treasures such as the Great Laxey Wheel and Rushen Abbey.

With such a wide choice of routes on offer, mixing countryside and coast, there's something for you whether you're a fairweather stroller looking for a breath of fresh air, or a determined hiker seeking something more invigorating!  And the walks even sound appealing, with names like Bayr Ny Skeddan (The Herring Road, which runs between Peel and Castletown) and Raad Ny Foillan (Way of the Gull - a 95 mile coastal footpath circling the Island).


Our walking breaks put you in control - you decide when you want to arrive, and how long you'd like to stay.  We look after your travel to the Island, and your accommodation, giving you the flexibility to plan each day of your stay as you wish.

We can arrange guided walks during your stay, please contact us for further information. 

If you prefer to travel without a guide, there are plenty of suggested routes - a Walking Guide leaflet containing seven self-guided walks is usually available at the airport, or can be downloaded here.  Specialist guide books are also available with a wider selection.
