There is nothing more wonderful than taking a walking holiday on an Island. Whether it is the excitement of catching a ferry to your destination of the joy of looking out of an aeroplane window at the blue seas as you approach the Island.
We have many great walking tours which explore the Islands. Island life is often different from life on the mainland, often more laid back and relaxed, maybe even a unique culture or tradition can be found.
