Gozo is the second largest of the Maltese Archipelago and means Joy in Castilian. Measuring only 14km by 7km its magical atmosphere enraptures thousands of visitors. This beautiful island is steeped in history as Phoenicians, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, French and British have occupied the island all leaving their cultural mark for the future visitor to discover. There pervades a sleepy pace and rustic charm contrasting with its much busier, and larger neighbour, the island of Malta. The Gozitans are all very friendly and especially welcoming to English speaking visitors and English is widely spoken.

Walking in Gozo, the walker is never far away from Gozo’s spectacular, amazing coastline with its towering cliffs falling in sheer drops to the clear waters, tiny creeks coves and hidden beaches of red sand. Walk through quiet village streets over green hills and through picturesque valleys and finish the day with a dip in crystal clear waters in a quiet blue cove or lagoon.

There are no challenging walks on this island the highest point is only 190 metres but there is plenty for a keen walker to discover. The paths are easy to navigate but way marking is sporadic.  Our walking notes will ensure you do not take a wrong turn.

Self Guided

We offer a choice of walks of an easy to moderate category. Most walks require a bus ride to get you to the start of the walk and back to base at the end. A ferry is required for one walk when you visit the island of Comino. 

Walks take you along cliff tops down to the coast exploring the fascinating salt pans, through fertile valleys to explore the ancient hill top villages and their dominating churches.


Guided

Our guides are residents of the island having lived most of their life in the UK. They have walked almost every path on the island and will take you on walks showing you the very best that Gozo has to offer giving an informative explanation of the island's rich history. 

We provide four guided walks reaching all parts of the island. You will either start from the hotel or the guide may transport you to the start and finish of the walk or you may use local transport payable locally, depending on the walk. The walks will be easy to moderate in nature and will take you along the coastline as well as exploring the villages, castles and churches inland. If you are visiting in the summer months, the walks will start in the late afternoon and continue through the cooler evening, returning in time for dinner.
