Hiking Cornwall

Cornwall is a county on England’s rugged southwestern tip. It forms a peninsula encompassing wild moorland and hundreds of sandy beaches, culminating at the famous promontory Land’s End. The south coast, dubbed the Cornish Riviera, is home to picturesque harbour villages like Fowey and Falmouth. The north coast is lined with towering cliffs and seaside resorts like Newquay, known for it’s surfing. Cornwall, with its quaint hamlets, hidden coves, stunning coastal scenery, and cobbled lanes wouldn’t be out of place in a fairy­tale. One of our favourite road­trips in England, this drive along the Cornish coastline, has repeatedly been adjudged one of the most scenic drives in the world.

This hiking tour offers to challenge yourself by walking long distances along the sea coast. However, it is much better than gym exercises, more time to socialize, enjoy the walk with friends, Russian speaking comrades, and have a lot of fun spending time in a friendly group. The tour is guided by an experienced mountain leader with you throughout the challenge.
