Walking in our Island Wonderland


If you like walking, you’ll adore the Isle of Man - there’s just so much of it to be enjoyed!

Given that the Island’s total population is equivalent to an average sized town, set against an overall land mass of 221 square miles, that leaves bags of space to roam free - across endlessly changing terrain.

From the spectacular Raad ny Foillan coastal path. which circumvents the Island’s 96-mile perimeter, to undulating fells affording glorious views, to sweeping valleys and glens adoring picturesque countryside - wherever you go on foot, you’re spoilt for choice!

And with Isle of Man Events plotting your course, you’ll always be pointing in the right direction.  

No Hassle

Go it alone, do it with guides on your own self-contained trip, or as part of our fabulous annual walking festival, Walk the Isle of Man. This gives you the opportunity to mix and match your walks across five days of fabulous footslogging within a superb social atmosphere.   

Here are three walks we highly recommend:

The Raad Ny Follan Coastal Path

It’s actually possible to circumvent the entire coastline via the Raad Ny Follan, the well maintained and signposted coastal footpath. Almost 100 miles all the way round, you’ll get to experience the breathtaking – and we mean breathtaking – beauty of the Isle of Man.   

The Millennium Way

The Millennium Way is a long distance footpath, opened in 1979 to mark the 1000th year of the Island’s Parliament. The path is approximately 28 miles long, stretching across the heart of the Isle of Man between Castletown and Ramsey, covering roads, marked paths and open moorland.

The Herring Way

Known as 'Bayr ny Skeddan' in Manx, the 14 mile Herring Way walk extends from the coast at Peel to Castletown, via Glen Maye and South Barrule. Covering public roads and footpaths and rising to a height of 1000ft at the Round Table, it was once the route taken by Manx fishermen as they journeyed between the two ports.
