Each day we will walk part of the Cornish Celtic Way. You can expect to cover around 6-8 miles per day over terrain which includes stunning and sometimes steep coastal walks, taking in churches, holy wells and other special places along the way. Luggage remains at Epiphany House, so you only need to walk with a day pack.
Sunshine with scattered showers is not uncommon but equally it can be hot. We will keep an eye on the daily weather forecast and the guide will plan our walking and stops accordingly.
This is a walking pilgrimage, so a good level of fitness is required and it is essential to start preparatory walks before departure. If for any reason you are unable to complete a walk or need some rest time, you can arrange a taxi for yourself back to base. As we stay in one location you only need to walk each day with a day pack to carry water, packed lunch, sun cream, hat, rain wear, blister plasters, spare socks etc. Do wear sturdy shoes or boots suitable for walking long distances.

About The Cornish Celtic Way
The Cornish Celtic Way is a new pilgrimage route covering 125 miles through Cornwall from St. Germans to St. Michael’s Mount. It incorporates over 60 miles of the Cornish coastal path as well as two established pilgrimage routes: The Saints’ Way and St. Michael’s Way. The Cornish Celtic Way is divided into 16 walks.
The aim of the Cornish Celtic Way is to aid people of all ages who are interested in spirituality to explore faith in a different way. We believe that having faith isn’t about just going to a place of worship – it’s about getting out and experiencing it in everyday life as well. We hope that the Cornish Celtic Way will develop spiritual growth and personal reflection through stories of the Celtic Saints, Cornwall’s rich history, incredible landscape and the people and communities that will be encountered along the way.
The Celtic saints engaged with nature and believed an understanding of God is revealed through it. They risked everything to bring Christianity to Cornwall between 500 and 600AD. The Cornish Celtic Way will guide people to walk in their footsteps, see what they saw and experience places of special significance where the Saints had been such as Celtic crosses, standing stones, holy wells and churches.
