Classic Around The Island Adventure
Walk the entire coastline of Ibiza
Approx total kilometers: 260
Approx kilometers per day: 25 kilometers
Approx hours of walking per day: 6-8 hours
We will circumnavigate the entire coastline of the island of Ibiza following the footsteps that Toby originally took when he went on that life changing adventure in 2010 from where Walking Ibiza was born. In contrast the Adventure is now fully supported along the way with nutritional daily food deliveries, a fully stocked support vehicle and even a few nights in a hotel to ensure the participants remain in good health and spirits.
This adventure is all about ‘getting away from it all’. Time away from your technology filled busy lives, taking time to breathe fresh rejuvenating air, feel the warmth of the sunshine and take in breathtaking views. You will spend 8 nights camping in the Campo (countryside) under the stars where you will sleep blissfully after days spent walking, talking, learning and just being in nature. 3 nights are spent in hotels and at the end of this adventure we will celebrate together in style with a beautiful meal where you will feel a real sense of wellness and achievement.
We start in Ibiza Town, with locals waving us off, and walk through the old town towards Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza’s longest beach. As we leave the town behind you’ll get a real sense of the adventure you’re about to embark on.
Over the next 11 days, we will walk around the coastline of the island, using paths that have existed for hundreds of years – and sometimes creating our own paths too! We will be able to connect with the island physically, mentally, spiritually.
25 km a day
The total distance is 260 km, so we are walking about 25km a day, although the distance will be less on hilly days. We try to balance long days followed by short days, and the longest day would be maximum 25-30km. Ibiza is very hilly, and we climb around 7000m over the course of the trek – this is higher than Kilimanjaro!
You will need to carry a 5kg day pack containing mainly water, snacks and packed lunch. Extra assistance will be provided to carry camping kit. We provide a support vehicle which will take your luggage to the next camping point or hotel.
At the end of the journey, as you come in towards Ibiza Town, with the old town on the hill, it can be a very emotional moment to cross over the finish line and enjoy a glass of champagne as people cheer you on. After cleaning up, we finish with a celebratory dinner in a restaurant or private venue to reminisce over this incredible experience.
This is a one off life time experience that only 60 people have done this to date. Most people say it has changed their life in some way, being out in nature, one foot in front of the other, disconnecting from technology, and fully experiencing all that Ibiza, and life, have to offer.
The longest journey begins with a single step
Price for the classic Around the Island Adventure is €1800 this includes transfers, initiation and briefing, most food, camping, hotels, 24hrs fully guided, support vehicle and last but not least a beautiful celebration dinner.
