One lucky participant to win walking holiday to Amalfi Coast in Italy

Exodus is delighted to announce that it will be sponsoring the Isle of Wight Walking Festival 2013, the largest walking festival of its kind in Europe! This festival will take place across three weekends between 4 and 19 May 2013, and will feature over 200 guided walks across the stunning Isle of Wight countryside.

Now in its fifteenth year, the festival will offer a full range of walking routes to suit all abilities, from leisurely ambles around the town of Ryde, to an epic twenty-four hour, non-stop journey along all 72 miles of the island’s perimeter. All walks will be led by one of 200 dedicated volunteer guides, each an expert in the ways of rambling.

Exodus will be running a number of dedicated walks over the two weekends, from the slow and gentle Tennyson Trail on Saturday 4 May, which will follow in the footsteps of the famous poet, to the challenging Charybdis Passage held on Saturday 11 May. While the dedicated Isle of Wight Walking Festival guides will lead these walks, members of the Exodus team will be taking part and providing fun motivational treats along the way!

As well as getting their walking boots muddy, the Exodus team will be hosting their own special presentation evening event, led by Exodus director Jim Eite on Saturday 11 May, for the festival’s walkers to celebrate their range of overseas walking holidays.

Jim Eite, product director of Exodus Travels, says “We are thrilled to take part in this fantastic event. Though we have been taking walking holidays across the globe from Oman to Argentina for over 38 years, this festival is a great opportunity for people to discover the wonders of walking right here in the UK, as well as celebrating our new series of UK walking weekends that we’re launching this year.”

To celebrate their involvement, Exodus is also running a competition to win a walking holiday for two to the Amalfi Coast of Italy. The lucky winner of Exodus’ most popular walking holiday will be announced at the Isle of Wight Autumn Walking Weekend between 25 and 28 October 2013.
