We’re off to the Jurassic Coast UNESCO World Heritage Site to hike one of the most spectacular paths in the south of England! Starting from the popular seaside resort of Weymouth, this magnificent coastal hike passes the famous and much photographed beautiful secluded Lulworth Cove with its white pebble beach and blue waters and the iconic natural limestone arch of Durdle Door. On our way, we will see lovely bays and beaches and enjoy excellent views of the Isle of Portland, which was host of the sailing events of the 2012 Olympics. Most of the route follows the cliff top trail with fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding coastline and the sea. This is a challenging hike with 750 meters of ascent and some very steep climbs up the chalk cliffs but all of your efforts will be well rewarded by the jaw-dropping beauty around you!
Distance: 12 miles (20 km).
Ascent: 750 m.
There will be a few very steep climbs and descents and a significant overall elevation gain, therefore the hike is suited for people with a medium level of fitness that want to challenge themselves or excellent fitness.
07:45 meet near Hotel Novotel London West, 1 Shortlands, W6 8DR (five minute walk from Hammersmith Station); 08:00 sharp departure; 11:00-17:00 hiking along the Jurassic Coast from Weymouth to Lulworth Cove, snack dinner at Lulworth Cove; 17:00 departure; 20:00 London, Hammersmith.
We will stop for a snack lunch halfway through the hike, so please bring a packed lunch with you. After the hike, if you feel peckish there are a few nice cafés and pubs at Lulworth Cove for you to explore – perfect for a quick meal before departure to London!
This hike is led by an experienced, Outdoor First Aid qualified hike leader.
What to bring:
That’s it, we will take care of the rest, so just turn up and have a great day of hiking 🙂!
If you’d like to walk at a faster pace than the group, we recommend to download the Maps.me app on your phone. All maps in the app are offline, which means that you’ll be able to use them without an internet connection or in places with poor reception. The Maps.me app is free and is very easy to use. On the day, I will explain how to use the app and share the GPS route of the hike. For more details on how to download the app see here.
Traveling in small groups creates a friendly atmosphere. We aim to have no more than 16 walkers per group leader.
This tour, as well as any other Evebus Tours, can be arranged for private groups. Please contact us on email@example.com with email subject “Private tours”.
