At the southern tip of England, where horses graze on open heathland and white chalk cliffs drop sharply into the blue swell of the Atlantic Ocean, there are two distinctively beautiful National Parks – New Forest and the South Downs. Accompanied by your knowledgeable Wilderness guide, explore both on this 7-day guided hiking tour.
First, wind your way through the old woodlands of New Forest, where bluebells bloom in May and wild garlic flowers in early summer. A place where ancient rights of common pasture are still exercised, learn about the area’s fascinating history as you watch ponies graze and cattle meander through bright, yellow gorse. On the second half of your adventure, head into the glorious green folds of the South Downs National Park. Walk through the undulating chalk hills and explore the spectacular coastline. Enjoy fabulous views, delicious local food and welcoming hospitality. On a thoroughly enjoyable walking holiday, immerse yourself in some of England’s most beautiful landscapes.
