The Ultimate British Walking Challenge

This summer, Britain on Foot is challenging the country to the ultimate outdoor walking adventure!

It’s a challenge for walkers young and old - eager newcomers and experienced enthusiasts alike - to join forces and walk the combined distance of the circumference of the earth (that’s almost 25,000 miles!) in just 80 days.

It doesn’t matter who you are or how far you walk. Just as long as you do!

And it couldn’t be easier to get involved.

You can walk when you want, where you want.

But to help, we have some stunning new walks mapped exclusively for the ‘80 Days’ event to share with - and inspire - you.

Outdoor. Swiss made.

The combination of spectacular scenery, a superb network of routes and outstanding facilities and services makes Switzerland the ultimate destination for outdoor activity fans.

Uniquely, Switzerland has integrated its long-distance footpaths, mountain bike trails, cycle routes and canoe itineraries into a single network: SwitzerlandMobility. A unified marking system identifies trails by name, number and colour, making independent exploration straightforward. Each route is also divided into a series of day-stages.

A comprehensive network of rental locations for bicycles, mountain bikes and electric bikes provides additional flexibility. Switzerland’s exceptionally dense public transport system allows you to join the trails almost anywhere. Specialist operator such as the Switzerland Travel Centre in London arrange trips throughout the network including luggage transfers, equipment hire and other services.

For bookings, please contact the Switzerland Travel Centre on 020 7420 4938 or visit: www.stc.co.uk/hiking Or for general information on active Switzerland, visit: www.MySwitzerland.co.uk/outdoor
