Join Us for Walk the Isle of Man 2019!

Thu, 25 Apr 2019


Sunday September 29th – October 4th

If you enjoy walking, you’ll love Walk the Isle of Man! Whether you are a seasoned hiker who knows the Island well, or you are travelling to the Island  for the first time to experience our magnificent landscapes and spectacular coastlines, Walk the Isle of Man promises a feast of sights and sounds, experiences and adventures, to treasure forever.

But don’t leave it too long to book, as places are limited. 

Our 2019 programme contains a superb choice of five walks each day – covering a mixture of easy, moderate and strenuous routes - designed to appeal to all levels of walker. Simply select one walk per day. You

can scale up as the week goes on, or take some days more leisurely than others. It’s entirely up to you.

Each walk will be led by experienced walk leaders and supporters but, please note, you will be responsible for bringing your own food and refreshments.

Strength in Depth

Here at Isle of Man Event Services, we have organised Walk the Isle of Man 2019 in partnership with Go-Mann Adventures, which is run by expert walking guide Dr Andrew Foxon. Andrew is a qualified Isle of Man Blue Badge Guide (Guild of Manx Registered Tour Guides) and a Hill & Moorland Leader (Mountain Training Association) with a background in archaeology & landscape history and a passion for the outdoors.

He is supported by an experienced and capable team of Isle of Man-based walk leaders and supporters who know the Island intimately. So you’ll be in safe and knowledgeable hands throughout.

And as for all your travel and accommodation arrangements, you can rely on Isle of Man Event Services to make the running for you. For thousands of visitors coming to the Isle of Man, it’s what we’ve been doing for years. Simply get in touch with us and we’ll arrange everything for you. See our contact details at the end of this piece.  

The Walks

The Isle of Man is famous for its stunning coastal, countryside, glen and moorland walking - and Walk the Isle of Man covers the best of the best, providing access to the finest inland and coastal walking throughout the Island.  All walks must be booked in advance and there will be a maximum number of 30 bookings for each walk. Should the walk you wish to do not be available, you will be offered other choices.

All walks start and finish using public transport. You may find it helpful to use the Go-Explore Card, which gives free access to Isle of Man buses, steam trains, the Manx Electric Railway (MER) and the Snaefell Mountain Railway (SMR).

Outward travel on the steam train, MER and SMR has been booked. Outward journeys by bus and all return journeys are not booked and options for those journeys will be provided in advance of the event and supplied to your walk leaders and supporters.

Arrival: 7pm | Sunday 29th September 2019

Walk the Isle of Man 2019 get underway with a rendezvous at The Ascot Hotel, just off the famous promenade in Douglas. The Ascot can be your base for the week, but we will also be offering a choice of accommodation options in and around Douglas. Let us know your preference.

During an introductory reception, you will have the chance to familiarise yourself, meet your fellow walkers and some of the walk leaders and organisers. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided.

Farewell reception: 7pm | Friday October 4th 2019

A farewell reception will be held at 7pm on October 4th at The Ascot Hotel and will provide the perfect opportunity to reconvene and reminisce, with one or two surprises thrown in. Don’t miss it!
