Walking

Share this page

Walking is a great way of helping to keep fit. The additional activity contributes towards a healthier more active lifestyle, helps to reduce pollution and traffic congestion, gives your more time to take in the scenery, have a chat with friends or colleagues along the way and helps reduce stress. When compared to other modes of transport, walking is a no cost alternative so helps you save money.

Walking to and from work and for short journeys is like cycling, a great way of helping to keep fit as the increased activity contributes toward a healthier lifestyle.

A number of guided walks which are of interest to both visitors and locals are available during the main visitor season, information can be found here.

  • Ruettes Tranquilles

    • If you would like to enjoy walking (and cycling) in quiet lanes, there are designated lanes across the island with a recommended speed limit of 15 mph. These are called 'Ruettes Tranquilles' and are open to all traffic though priority is given to cyclists, walkers and horse-riders. Together they form a rural route across the parishes of: Vale, Castel, Forest, St Andrew's, St Martin's, St Sampson's, St Saviour's. Each entry point to a Ruettes Tranquilles is signposted. An information leaflet giving additional information on Ruettes Tranquilles, along with the Ruettes Tranquilles network, can be found in the downloads section of this page. Living Streets Guernsey has created three walking routes: Baubigny, St Martin to St Peter Port and St Peter Port South to Town. These can also be found in the downloads section.
    • An app is also available to download free for Android, Windows and Apple devices. The app will help with navigating around the Ruettes Tranquilles network and also shows the various cycle tours routes across the island, the locations of the main cycle hoops and the local cycle dealers. There are no roaming charges when using the app, just make sure "Location" is enabled on your device so the app knows where you on the routes, you may also need to refresh the "Location" icon on your device periodically so your location is updated on the map. To download the app go to ITunesGoogle Play or the Microsoft Windows store.
  • Living Streets

    • Living Streets Guernsey have put together some scenic walking routes which are also great for cycling, one of these is the Baubigny path which runs from St Sampson's high school to Pitronnerie Road industrial estate. If you would like to try one of the routes, please check the route maps in the downloads section of this page.
