What to Expect on your Go Green Cornwall Walking Tour

 This tour is ideal for those who want to get back to the coast and nature, and we’re going to do it in as green a way as we can. All travel is on public transport and with zero use of plastic and food sourced in as locally as possible we’re delighted to operate this tour in as sustainably as possible. 

Cornwall’s rugged coastal trails form part of a 630 mile Coast Path stretching around the edge of the entire South West and we take full advantage of its routes to create a walking week full of beautiful views, high cliffs, beaches, harbours and charming coastal villages, where you’ll discover the real Cornwall. We’ll walk along Poldark-inspired headlands, beautiful stretches of ancient paths and visit incredible sites including St Michaels Mount, Land’s End and St Ives. 

With breath-taking panoramas around every corner, cosy B&B and hotel accommodation, wonderful pubs and delicious cuisine, Active England will give you an experience you will not forget.

 

What are our Go Green Tours? 

At Active England we’re passionate about regenerative travel. Our new Go Green Tours reflect this, with no fluff, just a real commitment. Soon enough all our tours will be fully green but for now we have adapted a selection of our existing tours – they are still active and adventurous and a whole lot of fun…

For our Go Green tours we are: 

  • Redesigning itineraries to reduce road travel
  • Using public transport for all necessary transfers
  • Encouraging guests to avoid places that are feeling a ‘burn-out’ from over-tourism 
  • Offering local, seasonal and sustainable food options where possible – working towards a 50 mile menu
  • Implementing a strict ‘no single-use plastic’ policy 
Flexible Walking Distance Options Each Day

Don’t feel obliged to walk the full distance each day. There are shorter options for guests, with opportunities to spend more time at the iconic sites, manors, gardens, beaches and in the towns for those wishing to walk fewer miles each day.

Cornwall Coast Guided Walking Itinerary

Day 1Arrival into Penzance

Day 1. Guests arrive, normally by public transport (with the train being probably the most convenient) into Penzance for 3pm where we head out for an introductory walk along the sea front to Newlyn, one England’s most renowned fishing ports. It’s a gentle stroll with the opportunity for a dip in the sea or swim the wonderful Penzance Lido, with it’s geothermal pool at 35c – it’s amazing! We have dinner together as a group, on locally sourced seafood (vegan options also locally sourced) before our first longer walk on day two. 

OPTIONS:
4 miles
Flat

Day 2Marazion, St Michael's Mount and Praa Sands

We start the day with the opportunity (optional!) for a dawn dip off Battery Rocks with the local swimming club. We walk to Marazion and cross the causeway – tide permitting – to the mysterious 14th Century castle on St Michael’s Mount, perched atop a great granite crag. Steeped in legend and folklore, the island has panoramic views across to Land’s End and to Lizard Point, the most Southerly point in Britain. We then have lunch at the National Trust café which prides itself on it’s locally sourced menu and walk back along the coastal path to the wonderful beach at Praa sands from where we catch the regular bus back into Penzance. 

OPTIONS:
5 miles or 9miles 
Flat 

Day 3St Ives on the Pilgrim's Way

We walk out of the door of the hotel and out of Penzance following the old pilgrims route, said to have been initiated by early missionaries who did not want to venture around the treacherous waters of Land’s End. It’s a great inland walk with the prize of St Ives at the end! Best known for its spectacular light and as a haven for painters for the last few hundred years and now home to the Tate Art Gallery, St Ives is truly magnificent. We lunch at one of the wonderful seafood cafes (if you have one of the local Cornish Pasties, watch out for the St Ives seagulls who are infamous for dive bombing and taking them right out of you hands!) and have plenty of time to walk around the town and visit the Tate St Ives or Barbara Hepworth’s Sculpture Garden. We then head to Penzance via the train – possibly the most beautiful train journey in the UK and back to Penzance for dinner.

OPTIONS:
6 miles to 10 miles
Gently Rolling 

Day 4Mousehole, Lamorna Cove, Porthcurno

Today we walk the three miles to one of Cornwall’s most beguiling small ports – the beautifully named Mousehole, pronounced Mouse’l where we have coffee or an early lunch before walking past Lamorna Cove and onto the amazing looking Ped’n Vounder and Porthcurno beach – famous for its transatlantic cable station. From Porthcurno we catch the bus back to Penzance for a lovely relaxing evening in the town. 

OPTIONS:
6 miles to  9 miles 
Rolling Coastal Walks

Day 5Land’s End, Sennan Cove and St Just

We catch the bus from Penzance to Land’s End, the most westerly point of the UK, and well worth a picture or two (although the visitor centre is somewhat disappointing). We have a quick coffee and head out on the South West Coastal Path towards Sennan Cove where we stop for lunch in one of the local cafés before heading off to St Just along the Penwith Heritage Trail. It’s an amazing walk and a fitting end to our magical week on the Cornish coast. We have a celebratory dinner, often a private dining experience catered at the Penzance Lido which is a wonderful end to a great week. 

OPTIONS:
6 miles to  9miles 
Rolling Coastal Walking

Day 6Farewells and Ongoing Travel

After a relaxed breakfast we transfer to Penzance Railways station, just outside town, helping all guests with their ongoing travel arrangements.
