 Halty Bear Greeting the Troops on Day 1 of the 2022 Festival

IMG 0283a

Our full walks schedule is now available to view! Please see the grid below.

Bookings are now being taken and places are selling fast!

Our long distance adventure this year is the St Oswald’s Way. This is a great chance to walk a substantial portion of a wonderful long distance path.  Our walk will be from Alnmouth to Heavenfield and cover approximately 62.5 miles. The route encompasses some of Northumberland’s most stunning landscapes including coast, woods and moorland.

The logistics of linking transport for the St Oswald’s Way are not easy to pull off as the route passes through some remote areas of the county.  This is the ideal opportunity to let us organise things for you.

On Days 1 to 4 (inclusive), we will travel by car to the finish point each day to pick up a coach to take us to the starting point. On Day 5, we will meet in Haltwhistle. A coach will take us to the start and bring us back to Haltwhistle at the end.

You may book for as many days as you wish but each day needs to be booked separately. Why not set yourself the challenge of completing all 62.5 miles?!

Whatever your level of fitness or interests there are 27 different waks on offer, so there is sure to be something for everyone.
