VisitGuernsey launches new e-brochure for walking enthusiasts

Post by GD on Thu 22 Mar 2012, 6:09 pm

VisitGuernsey has launched a new walking e-brochure to celebrate the Island’s miles of stunning cliff top paths, peaceful rural lanes and mild climate, which make it perfect for a walking themed break.

The new e-brochure includes everything needed to plan a visit to Guernsey with walking in mind - from events listings and videos for inspiration, to maps and practical travel information.

Whether it’s hiking along the coast, wandering through woodlands to a secluded sandy bay or exploring the flora drenched winding country lanes, the best way to discover Guernsey’s beautiful scenery and peaceful way of life is on foot.

The Island’s varied terrain and scenery has something to satisfy any interest and ability along its 28.5 miles of cliff top paths which wind around long sections of picturesque coastline. The west coast is flattish with sweeping beaches, while the south and south-east offer stiff hill ascents and superb views across to the neighbouring islands of Herm and Sark.

A highlight of Guernsey’s landscape are the Ruettes Tranquilles, a growing network of quiet country lanes where priority is given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders, with a top speed of just 15mph! Clearly marked, the Ruettes Tranquilles offer a chance to really explore Guernsey’s peaceful countryside and to get a sense of Island life barely touched by time.

And after a hike [or gentle stroll!] there’s the option to refuel at one of the many beachside kiosks or ‘Hedge Veg’ boxes scattered around the island, selling local produce such as Guernsey ice cream and fresh fruit and vegetables.

For those after a more guided ramble, Guernsey celebrates the outdoors during the Spring [5-13 May] and Autumn [8-16 September] Walking Weeks, with diverse programmes of themed walks.

From a wander around St Peter Port’s historic streets to a more vigorous coastal ramble to learn about Guernsey during the German Occupation of World War II, the series of walks on offer include a variety of lengths, routes and themes to suit any interest and ability.

As well as the downloadable e-brochure a variety of maps and walking guides are available for Guernsey, including the newly published ‘The Channel Island Way’ featuring walking routes for Guernsey and four other Channel Islands.
