The biggest local annual walking event is the popular Manx
Telecom Parish Walk. The Parish Walk gets its name as it
passes through every parish on the Isle of Man, a total distance of
85 miles (137 km). Full detail can be found on www.parishwalk.com.
There is also a Walking festival, the next due to take place in 2017. The Festival offers a range of walks of differing difficulties and lengths which are graded individually to suit walkers of all abilities.
An Isle of Man Walking Guide is available to download here.
We have over 200 footpaths to offer
visitors, through more than 300 miles of unchanged countryside
and unspoilt beaches - ideal for ramblers and walkers of all
ages and abilities.
