Guided walking on Ibiza

 There is no better way to discover Ibiza than on foot…

Taking time out to walk amongst its rugged beauty, climb the rocky terrain and traverse Ibiza’s coastline, fringed by crystal clear waters, refreshes you inside and out.

Being born here, there are few spots I have not walked on Ibiza. After taking a walk around the full circumference of the island over 11 days and nights, I had a rare opportunity to fully drink in its landscape. As a result, I find my cup is always quite full!

Spending time in nature and discovering Ibiza’s secret beaches, hidden paths and seemingly never ending wonders is still a journey for me and one I love to share.

No matter what fitness level you are, I will find a walk to suit you & your group and be sure Ibiza will amaze and surprise you on route.

Tailor Made walks

Walking is a simple pleasure, but like most things in life, unless you’re on the right path it can get tricky!

I can help you find the right walk for the level for you or your group and ensure it’s a smooth, seamless operation with plenty of natural beauty. Similarly, I can find you a good challenge if that is what you’re after. Ibiza provides the perfect platform for all levels of walking & there is also the option of my walking tour, or a bespoke daily walking guide service, where I can provide, pick up and drop off and even a halfway picnic, should you require it.

Community Walks

Clover Valley walk

NOW every FRIDAY and SATURDAY!

As a resident of the island, you get to see the slightly less crazy months of the year, when winter sets in and the holidaymakers have gone home. This is one of the nicest times of year to walk here in Ibiza and get to know those who live here, when they are less busy working.

It’s a great way to catch up, see old friends and meet new ones, so I’ve set up a twice weekly walk on Fridays and Saturdays when all of us can get together whilst taking in the beautiful scenery.

This is not purely for residents and everyone is welcome. If you are thinking of moving here or want to meet those who are living here to get a more local perspective however, this is a good way to mine for information!

All walks start at 10am, though in summer to avoid the heat I also organise sunrise and sunset walks.

Always check the Facebook page HERE for locations, times and difficulty levels – plus photos of the walks you may have been captured in previously!

The suggested donation for this walk is 10 Euros and is greatly appreciated. Dogs are also welcome to come and join Cosmo on the walk and keep him company.


If you are interested, please CONTACT ME!


3 Day / 2 Night Walks

Walking in the woodsA word that often comes to me on this island is the word Trust.

When I walk it pops up a lot and I feel like that is something we should give in to, as more often than not we are too busy to notice anything!

Taking a break back in nature gives us a chance to tune in a little more and realign away from our creature comforts.

It is what I notice the more time I spend walking and the less time I am at my lap top when I took the decision to walk round the island with just a single euro in my pocket 3 years ago with my dog Cosmo. I trusted completely that we would be fed and watered en route…thankfully I was right.

Since then requests to take others on this journey come to me a lot, but some do not have the time for the full experience. I now offer 3 day 2 night walks and this includes food and drinks, guidance, tent, matt & insurance, not to mention a full spa day upon landing at the finish line.

To join us, you will need to have basic fitness, but boundless energy and be able to carry a 5kg day pack each day.

You will need to provide sleeping bag, rucksack & be sure you are insured medically.

We will take care of the rest for you.

The cost for the walk is €350 per person. Max 6 people.


If you are interested, please CONTACT ME!


A typical day

Las Salinas at sunsetEach day is organic and tailored to the group and individuals. The walk is not a race but a time to allow people to switch off and enjoy the outstanding beauty of Ibiza. We walk on average 15-20km’s a day, there are some hills, but we go at the pace of the group.

We stop for lunch wherever we find a good spot to soak up the sun, and take in the deep blue of the sea and luckily Ibiza provides many such places. Ibiza has many uninhabited stretches of coastline which we always seek out on our hikes or to lounge upon for lunch or just take a break while we relish the cool blissed out breeze beneath the pine trees while relaxing with new friends.

All food provided on the trip is highly nutritious and where possible locally sourced to ensure the maximum energy from the island is consumed and of course, it’s all made with love.

Close to the camping stop for the night we will be met with our tents/ sleeping bags And provisions for the evening.

Once snuggled up around the camp fire near to some of Ibiza’s hidden beaches you will most likely find yourself gazing up at the star filled sky, eating a well deserved dinner reminiscing about the days with your new companions.

Around The Island Walk 2014

High view of Es Vedera with tree in foregroundWhen I took off with my dog Cosmo and just one euro in my back pocket to survive the trip a few years ago, it did strike me as slightly foolish. However, as the days passed and I encountered a barrage of generosity and adventure, I realised this was the trip that would change my life…and it did.

Having those 11 days without gadgets or gismo’s and just being fully immersed in nature threw a new perspective on my life. I felt more connected to nature, but more importantly with myself and my surroundings. I am fully aware the best things in life are for free and you could do this by yourself as I did, but sharing this journey is a special experience and having been asked many times to guide people on the route I took, it felt natural to facilitate this for others.

Walkers tent with sunriseI have taken many guests on this round the island walk. Usually

I book groups twice a year for this journey.

The next one will be on the 12th of October 2014 and I am looking for 10 active individuals to join me on this magical journey.

The walk will be inclusive with most of the food and drinks provided, you will need to be fairly fit and capable of carrying a 10-12 kg backpack.

Most of all I am looking for people who are up for a challenge, as this is no walk in the park! Ibiza has hills and rocks and big cliffs and breath taking beauty to be discovered. Even when you think you can’t take another step, a new view will inspire you to keep up and continue and we will all share in this life changing experience together.

Adventurer Island walk 2014

This is the full on experience, you will carry everything you need, be camping at stunning locations and really get back to nature in every way.  We spend 2 nights in hotels along the way and have food either delivered by the support vehicle every few days or eat at locals bars and restaurants.

For the 2 week experience the price is €1600.00.

Flights are not included to and from Ibiza.

You will need to provide; sleeping bag, rucksack, ensure you are fully insured medically and be full of boundless energy.

Take a look at the 2013 walk page for more information & testimonials and to get a feel for what you will experience.

Ibiza Charity Adventure

April 22-26 2014

Ibiza Charity AdventureIMG_5739

Sleep under the stars, feel the warmth of the wind as it rushes through your hair on a cliff road overlooking the Mediterranean, dive into crystal clear waters in a beautiful hidden cove, race through lush, green forests and discover the wonder of the magical island of Ibiza in a brand new challenge designed to simultaneously take your breath away while raising money for two fantastic causes.

Walking Ibiza and Bespoke Ibiza have come together to create Ibiza Charity Adventure – 22-26 April 2014: an exhilarating five-day program of hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and many more surprise outdoor activities combining the pursuits above plus one night camping, two nights stay at a hostel and a fantastic treat to help you get geared up (and later wind down!) after an enthralling, enlightening expedition – two nights stay in a luxury boutique hotel in the countryside all finishing with a ‘Bespoke’ dinner and celebration in true Ibiza style.

Embarking on the wonders of a new challenge and embracing the beauty of nature, this adventure is set to lead you on a journey of self-discovery – a way to shed the layers of everyday life and a trial which once achieved will undoubtedly freshen your outlook on pretty much everything. As well as opening up your own horizons, your Adventure will help generate more opportunities too for organisations which work selflessly to improve the lives of children with disabilities and cancer patients.

One of the charities is APNEEF – an Ibiza and Formentera based group working with children who have special educational needs. Their objectives are to improve the development and evolution of these children and to increase their quality of life and social integration by means of specialised programmes such as psychomotor therapy, equine therapy, multi-sensory stimulation, manual workshops and hydrotherapy, as well as any other treatment which helps to stimulate and rehabilitate.

The Samasound Association is the other organisation set to benefit from this fund-raiser. By offering sound healing to patients fighting cancer and other illnesses, results of this effective treatment are incredible and include strengthening of the immune system and allaying stress, leading to wonderful improvements in critical situations. The work of this group has now spread beyond Ibiza to the United States and they’re fighting to have sound healing recognised as a complimentary medical treatment.Ibiza Charity AdventureIMG_5130

To take part in the Adventure, participants will be expected to raise a minimum sponsorship of €1250 with minimum €250 going to charity, although anything raised over and above the minimum sponsorship will also go to charity.

All food and drinks will be provided on the Adventure but participants will be expected to bring their own sleeping bag and of course, appropriate footwear and clothing. Tents and equipment will be provided. Spaces are limited.

About Us

Often confused with a destination purely for hedonists, who use the island as their playground, I love to see the look of surprise as people discover what else Ibiza has to offer.

Less talked about is its rustic beauty and rugged charm, often overlooked by those purely seeking the obvious sun, sand, surf and sangria.

In fact, some spots on the island are so sacred, they now have their own protection system and have been named as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

about1-3x2
about2-3x2

Like most of the good things in life, the best ones here are also free and do not have a 50 Euro entry fee or burly bouncer at their door. However, they do require a little perseverance & effort to find.

We are all guilty, when on holidays, of wanting to collapse onto the nearest lounger, but even a one day walk opens up a whole new side to Ibiza  that you will never encounter on the usual tourists trails.

This has reminded me why I have always loved my home. Kicking off an 11 day trip hiking her hills, curves and ragged rocky corners.  You can hear the full story of that round the island venture in my first instalment of the Tales from the Walking Trails podcast.

Being born on Ibiza I am passionate about sharing the paths I have discovered here and they are not always related purely to the scenery, as Ibiza is a spiritual place. Once you walk in Ibiza, you will feel the magical energy she emanates, as Ibiza is grounded on a bed of crystals and lives opposite the unique beauty of Es Vedra, the third most magnetic point in the world.

This magical energy is probably what finally drew me back to Ibiza after a break to the career treadmill of the UK.

I found my cycle of powerful job, big car, bigger house, mortgage & bills finally threw me off it’s conveyor belt and I was lucky to escape with my beautiful wife Belinda.

about4-3x2
about3-3x2

Luckily we both shared the same vision to live abroad and after our daughters had flown the nest, we headed to Latin America travelling for what was to be the beginning of a two year trip.

It got cut dramatically short in Cusco after travelling for our first year, perched high on top of a sacred mountain. We shared a similar revelation, that we needed to come back to Ibiza and set up home. It was the best decision we have made and Walking Ibiza was born from my decision to walk round the island with one euro in my pocket, 3 years ago.

The rest as they say is….history!

WALKING IBIZA – WALKING FRIDAY/SATURDAY – 18/19 APRIL – THE EASTER HIKE, IBIZA STYLE!

Es_PortitxolThis week we’re celebrating the forthcoming Easter feast by following in the footsteps of the hardy fisherman who’ve brought the most succulent seafood to Ibiza’s tables over the years.

This resilient walk begins at Can Sulayetas, next to the beautiful Es Portitxol in the north west of the island, and is a 10km circular route.

At the start we’ll follow the traditional path the fishermen used to use when transporting their catch of the day – up to 60kg – before discovering some abandoned treasures – including a few liquid treasures (you know where this is going…;) before heading on to a lush, green valley.

A beer will, of course, be waiting for us back at the bar at the end.

WALKING IBIZA – WALKING FRIDAY/SATURDAY – 21/22 MARCH – A LITTLE BIT OF RIO AND DISCOVERING CHRISTO

21_March_credit_Trudy_WestThis Friday/Saturday we are going on a pilgrimage through old paths and fruit groves to visit the little know Christo (Christ) statue. Yes – that’s right – a huge statue of our Lord that could be taken straight from of a snap from the famous landmark in South America.

The statue of Christ the Redeemer is the same as the larger one that stands over the famous Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and was constructed by a Bishop who fled to the hills and evaded capture during the civil war. As a thank you to Christ who protected him he had the statue built.

Standing at 24m tall you could be forgiven for thinking you would have noticed it before now!

- good footwear that have been worn in
- sun hat if required
- light shower coat, just in case
- offering to leave at the alter under Christ!


DOGS: If you have a lovely dog, they are more than welcome. Some short bits of this walk are on quiet roads so best to have them on leads at these points.

DONATION: The walk is by donation (suggested €10 per person) or what you feel the guided walk is worth to you!

INSURANCE: I have liability insurance, but do not have medical insurance for you coming on the walk in case of an accident.

The walk and your safety is your responsibility and you must insure you are covered for this prior to coming on the walk.

KNOW A WALK? I am also looking for guest guides, so if you know a suitable walk for a group please let me know and help lead a walk!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Love and hugs

WALKING IBIZA – WALKING FRIDAY/SATURDAY 14/15 MARCH – SUNSET PARADISE AND HIDDEN HOUSES

Sunset Paradise**I’m on holiday this week so our next walk will be led by the wonderful Ismael Madrigal and his partner Daan on Friday and on Saturday by the amazing Amanda Matalavea.

This Friday/Saturday, Walking Ibiza combines coastline, forest, some illicit properties and the best view points of the west of the island.

Starting at the gorgeous Cala Salada beach, we take an old trail leading us to the house known as ‘Sunset Paradise’. Here you’ll see astonishing views of San Antonio harbour, Cala Bassa/Cala Conta, Sa Conillera and Ses Bledes – and even the mainland! From there we’ll go to the hidden and illegal house/construction of a huge 80’s superstar – this you’ve got to see – before heading back to Cala Salada for a well-earned picnic.

THIS WEEK: the walk STARTS and ENDS on Cala Salada beach.

Friday we set off at 10am and Saturday we set off at 1pm.

MEETING POINT: Cala Salada beach

GOOGLE MAP:  Cala Salada beach

RATING:  MEDIUM
The walk length is between 10 and 12 km. Most of the walk is on good paths and dirt tracks although there are a few steep parts with loose stones underfoot

LUNCH:  This week we’ll be having a lovely picnic on the beach. Bring your own food or on Friday - for €15 per head – Daan will prepare you a delicious lunch (with a drink included.) Please let us know in advance if you’d like to reserve this.


WHAT TO BRING:  ideally a small backpack for:
- at least 1.5 litres of water
- some BIG snacks to keep you going
- good footwear that have been worn in
- sun hat if required
- light shower coat, just in case
- swimming things if you dare…


DOGS:  If you have a lovely dog, they are more than welcome. Some short bits of this walk are on quiet roads so best to have them on leads at these points.

DONATION:   The walk is by donation (suggested €10 per person) or what you feel the guided walk is worth to you!

INSURANCE:  I have liability insurance, but do not have medical insurance for you coming on the walk in case of an accident.

The walk and your safety is your responsibility and you must insure you are covered for this prior to coming on the walk.
