Walking holidays in Jersey are simply good for the soul. You will discover a landscape full of gentle surprises, shifting in a kaleidoscope of colour with each passing season. Blow away the cobwebs on a walking weekend, with fresh salty air as you drink in the dramatic beauty of Jersey’s coast. Meander along rugged cliff paths carpeted with gorse and wildflowers as the tide laps against the sweeping shoreline below.
Wander through wooded valleys and country lanes to birdsong, or gently amble along the marina to enjoy local food and drink at a seaside pub nestled in a French-style fishing village. As the sinking sun lights up the evening sky, paddle your tired feet in clear local waters when the day is done.
Whether it’s a solo walking holiday, or perhaps you’ve got the troops with you on a family walking holiday, come and explore this unique island – with no passports required for travellers from the UK, it couldn’t be easier to book yourself a hiking holiday in Jersey.
