Map This Adventure


Hike the breadth of England on this fascinating trek along the full length of Hadrian's Wall from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend. Your tour starts with arrival in Newcastle on the eastern edge of the country. You will then meet our local representative and shuttle across England to your start point in the west. Six days of hiking will take you the entire length of Hadrian's Wall and you'll also be able to say you hiked across England.


Moderate to Difficult - The first two and last two days of the hike are mostly flat. However, the middle two hiking days do have hills and 14 miles of hiking per day can be strenuous regardless.


You are responsible for your own equipment. Good quality walking boots/shoes will be needed for the trip and, given the normal weather conditions, appropriate outdoor clothing including waterproof pants and jacket are recommended. More details will be provided in your pre-departure packet.


The accommodation on the tours are in inns, small family-run hotels, and bed & breakfasts, along with a beginning and ending night at a first-class hotel in Newcastle. While the hiking takes place mostly in rural areas, the quality of lodging is mostly very good. We endeavor and almost always do provide en-suite accommodation, but this cannot always be guaranteed. Single occupancy is available subject to confirmation and availability.


All prices below are in US dollars, per person, for a minimum group size of two. The Base Price for all adventures includes a Pre-Departure Packet, double occupancy accommodations in three-star lodging facilities, breakfasts, welcome meeting with our in-country staff, transfer from Newcastle to the tour start on the west coast, luggage transfers, map of the Hadrian's Wall walking route, and emergency support phone line. Dinners, lunches, personal expenditures, and transportation to and from Newcastle are not included (unless airport pick-up option is selected.) See our Pricing Page for full details on our Base and Supplemental prices and information on travelers going solo.
