Enjoy a self-guided “around island” walking holiday on the 44 mile coastal footpath around the Island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands in the UK, with day trips to Herm and Sark.

This Guernsey walking holiday offers an amazing variety of terrain, from heath-covered cliffs with views across the sea to the other Channel Islands, sandy bays, and rocky coves.

This wonderful coastal path around Guernsey, the 2nd largest of the Channel Islands, can be walked over 4 days at about 11 miles per day. Explore the islands of Herm and Sark to make this holiday into 6 days of great walking. You stay in St Peter Port for the entire holiday and we include daily transfers back to your accommodation.

Guernsey, Herm and Sark are steeped in history with relics dating back to Neolithic times, as well as reminders of the Channel Islands more recent past, including Martello Towers of the Napoleonic Wars and extensive German fortifications from the Second World War.
The coast paths of these islands offer relaxing walking and a great way to unwind and recuperate.

Our self-guided walking holidays are designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind and can be tailor-made to your own personal requirements.

The routes are clearly way-marked to provide reassurance on your hiking vacation.

We use high quality guest houses, inns or small hotels with en-suite or private bathroom to ensure you are well rested each night after a busy day hiking and sightseeing. Rest assured that all our accommodation walking holiday providers are hand-picked and offer you that famous British hospitality.

Special diets can be catered for, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free.

We organize the luggage transfer so your bags are at your next accommodation when you arrive.

Let’s Go Walking has developed one of the largest selection of walking holidays and our offices are staffed 9am to 9pm to ensure your walking holiday runs without a hitch.

Day 6: The Island of Herm    
Take a day-trip from St Peter Port to the island of Herm, only half a square mile, but 4 miles of coastal footpaths. Herm is a paradise of dramatic cliffs, wild flowers, hills, valleys, golden beaches and no cars.

Take a day-trip from St Peter Port to the island of Sark, only 2 square miles, but 15 miles of coastal footpaths. Sark is entirely cliff-bound, and even the main harbours are at the foot of the cliff and access from them to the village is through tunnels and up a steep track. Little Sark is linked with the rest of the island by the knife-edge pass of Le Coupée.
