Walking Cornwall with Cornish Explorers FAQ's

When it comes to outdoor activities and walking in Cornwall there can be many questions. We have answered the whats whens wheres whos whys and hows but please don’t hesitate to contact us for any other questions.

How long do the walks take?

A: ~ 5 hours or less

The average walk is 10k and calculating an easy pace of 25 mins per km with a lunch/swim break you have a good day out walking on the path. There will be regular natural breaks throughout. You will have time to appreciate the landscape, listen to your guide and stop when you notice some wildlife or want some water.

How hard & hilly are the walks?

A: It varies between 180m and 500m of elevation.

The Cornish landscape has lots of coastal valleys and hills. Each of our walks in Cornwall has a different ‘total elevation gain’ – this is the overall height you will climb on a walk. On each walk profile you can see the elevation chart and the total elevation. This will give you an idea of how challenging a walk will be for you.

Do the walks go ahead if it rains?

A: Simply, yes they do. 

Walking in Cornwall when it’s cloudy, windy or raining can be exhilarating, atmospheric & wildly beautiful. Cornish weather changes at the drop of a hat but your guide is there to keep you prepared, sheltered and safe. There will be times that the walks get cancelled due to unsafe walking conditions, however you will be told.
