Walking the South West Coast Path

Sep 21 - Oct 01, 2021

11 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 visit 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 four nights in the St. Ives, a town celebrated for its art-inspiring light. Move to the working harbour of Falmouth for three nights – the town excels at seafood and you’ll want to enjoy the fish, crab, oysters, and mussels. Conclude with three nights in in a charming 16th century inn in the heart of the Duchy of Cornwall.

On many days we have a short and longer walk option. And if you need picking up, then, no problem, we are always on hand to help. A support vehicle is with the tour at all times.
