Hike the first 100+ miles of England's South West Coast Path National Trail and discover its beauty and hidden treasures on this 13 day adventure. After viewing this stunning coastal scenery around this section of England's South West Peninsula, it's no wonder why this 630-mile long South West Coast Path was featured in National Geographic, and is considered one of the world's greatest walks. Being described by The Lonely Planet as "walking at its most diverse, most spectacular and most delicious", this is a delightful way to explore England's natural scenery. This trip is the first in a series of six, with the goal of completing the path.
