Water

St Ouen Orbital (107).jpg

Visit the beautiful reservoirs of Val De La Mar, Queen's Valley and Millbrook and many hidden gems along your way.

See the power of water in action, take a stroll along babbling brooks, travel past ponds and the water mills of Tesson and Le Moulin de Quétivel .

 

Watch the crashing of the waves along the sea shores of the coastal routes, it is guaranteed that a different view appears every time.

Woods and fields

Lose yourself in thick woodlands and gaze over vast fields of farmland and areas of outstanding natural beauty.  

 

Explore the magnificent arboretum at Val de La Mare, wonder through the hazy woodlands of Grève de Lecq and St Peter's Valley. Stride out across the farmlands of St Lawrence ... and treat yourself to a trip through the orchid fields and RAMSAR wetlands of St Ouen's bay. 

 

... You may even want to take advantage of the honesty boxes spread across the island, lots of unique and often yummy local products to enjoy!!

Cliffs and bays

Challenge yourself on the steep tracks and stare in wonder at the magnificent views across to France, Guernsey and beyond.

 

Whether it is the rugged routes of Gifford Bay or the flatter plateaus of Les Landes de L'Est; all offer unique experiences and offer a variety of pathways that lead to your goal. 

With all the amazing cliff routes it's easy to forget the equally stunning beaches and bays, to credit them all is difficult as you will all find your favourites. From the wide expanses of Grouville and St Ouen to the seclusion of Petit Port and Fliquet ... Don't forget the ice cream!!!

Pathway through time

St Clement Circular (51).jpg

For such a small island we are enriched with a large variety of history. On a single walk you can take a trip through several millennia. From the Neolithic sites of Le Dolmen du Mont Ubé and Le Dolmen du Couperon to the grand farm houses of St Lawrence.

 

Admire majestic castles such as Mont Orgueil and Elizabeth Castle to smaller forts including La Crête and Fort William and observe how we have defended our island over the years. 

Witness firsthand the impact of the German occupation whilst exploring imposing structures spread across the parishes, including the huge bunker complexes at Les Landes and Noirmont.
