About the Event

You will receive a full refund if the government imposes travel restrictions on this trip.


Make the most of your time off work on this beautiful trip along the south-westernmost point in the UK! This trip includes some of the most beautiful hikes in Cornwall.

This trip requires a good fitness level as we need to walk at a moderate to fast pace due to the shorter days.

We will not be able to wait for slow walkers! You have been advised. You will have to find your own way back to the hostel.

The hikes on this trip will also be along a sheer cliff, and some scrambling will be included. You must not be too afraid of heights to attend this trip.
