Walking the South West Coast Path

May 17-25, 2023

9 days | England | alumni UBC Travel Club

This tour aims to make the most of the South West Coast Path, an incredible 620-mile route around Devon and Cornwall’s coast.

Follow the fine trails with fabulous views as you traverse picture-perfect villages, old fishing ports, and chic coastal towns. Experience the wild cliffs, crags, and headlands on an exhilarating coastal trek. Visit the ancient fishing port of Megavissey and the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan here. Cross the causeway at low tide to make your way to picturesque St. Michael’s Mount, the island home of an ancient monastery and medieval castle. Explore the great art at The Tate St Ives. Dine on the freshest cuisine from land and sea and relax in comfortable accommodation.

We’ve limited our stay to three bases for a relaxed pace. Start with three nights in Penzance, a town celebrated for its famous pirate stories, and enjoy the fish, crab, oysters, and mussels that arrive fresh on your doorstep. Move to the working harbour town of Falmouth for three nights – the town excels at coffee, art and of course, seafood. Conclude with two nights in the village port of Charlestown close to the heart of the Duchy of Cornwall. We have short and longer walk options, and if you need picking up, then, no problem at all, we are always on hand to help. A support vehicle is with the tour at all times.
