Map This Adventure

Overview

We add an extra day in the hilly interior region on this tour, making it a bit easier than our standard Coast-to-Coast tour and giving you more time to enjoy the ancient remains of the Wall and accompanying forts. The first three hiking days are the same but on Day Four we split the 14-mile walk into two shorter days, giving you what amounts to two rest days with extra time to explore the area. You will still hike coast-to-coast from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend and other details of your hike are the same.

Difficulty:

Moderate - The first two and last two days of the hike are mostly flat. While the middle portion of the hike contains rolling hills and some hilly sections, you cover this over three days instead of two, making it more moderate than our Hadrian's Wall Coast-to-Coast tour.

Equipment:

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.

Accommodations:

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.

Price:

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.
