Walks Programme

The Exmoor Society is now a major provider of guided walks on Exmoor with a programme that runs from March to December. Walks start from different locations across Exmoor and are of different lengths and on a wide variety of themes.

On our walks you can:

  • Discover prehistoric sites
  • Hear about figures from literature and the arts and see the landscapes that inspired them
  • Explore the history of Exmoor settlements
  • Learn about Exmoor’s flora and fauna
  • Spot wildlife (hopefully, but no guarantee)
  • Explore a new route or re-visit a favourite one

All the walks are set in stunning Exmoor landscapes. Do come along, learn something new and enjoy the company of a welcoming and knowledgeable guide.

The walks are led by volunteers who enjoy sharing their time, knowledge and passion for Exmoor. Members and non-members alike are welcome to join the walks which are free, although donations are very much appreciated.
