Visit the Isle of Wight Autumn Walking Weekend

The Isle of Wight Autumn Walking Weekend could be a fantastic opportunity for island visitors to embrace the great outdoors and sample the stunning scenery available in the local area next month.

Running from October 25th to 28th, routes across the Isle of Wight are to be opened up to avid ramblers for the 15th year in a row, with fans of fresh air and exercise in for a treat with the array of walking options open to them over the long weekend's activities.

This year's programme includes more than 100 walks that are free for visitors to enjoy, with special events including the Dinosur Walk where individuals are given the chance to take a guided tour of the island as they explore its rich history and importance in terms of paeleological finds.

A round-the-island three-day excursion is also being organised for those keen to explore the sights of the Isle of Wight, taking in areas across Cowes and Ventnor on day one, heading over to Totland on day two and finishing back in Cowes by day three.

In total, walkers will cover more than 70 miles and spend almost ten hours per day sampling the sights of the island.

As such, guests are encouraged to pack a range of essentials, including plenty of food and water, a change of clothes and sturdy walking boots, with the trek expected to be one of the most popular excursions for island visitors.

Sponsored by the Isle of Wight Council, Exodus, Red Funnel, Isle of Wight Tourism and a range of other bodies, the Isle of Wight Autumn Walking Weekend will be a fantastic experience for visitors keen to embrace the beauty of nature and get into the great outdoors during their time on the island.

Starting points and times vary each day for the different excursions and as a result, anyone keen to get involved is encouraged to visit the festival's official website for a full breakdown of the itinerary.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801633149-ADNFCR
