Red Funnel sponsored event logo

With more than half of the Island recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 500 miles of well-maintained footpaths , it's no wonder the Isle of Wight is home to the UK's largest walking festival. There are over 300 walks, many of which are themed including heritage trails, fossil hunting and even a speed dating walk.

Whether it's walking with Alpacas, encountering a zombie on a ghost walk, hiking round the Isle of Wight coastline or taking a leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens - there's a perfect walk for you, whatever your age, interest or ability.
