Walks And Walking – The Isle Of Wight Walking Festival 2013
The Isle of Wight walking festival is now in full swing as hundreds of walkers took to the footpaths over the bank holiday weekend. With over 270 walks to choose from over 16 days there are still plenty of walks left to do up to the 19th May.
“We’re really excited to be sponsoring the 2013 walking festival” says Ben Roseveare, Marketing Director from Exodus Travels. It’s a great fit with Exodus as the UK’s leading provider of worldwide small group walking holidays – and the Isle of Wight walking festival as the largest in Europe! Ben is also looking forward to some special moments at the festival this year – “from launching a few dedicated Exodus Walks to organising a special evening event to celebrate the best of our overseas walking holidays – we can’t wait!”
