Orkney Islands Walking Holidays

Why Book Orkney Walking Holidays?

From luscious green scenery stretching far and wide to iconic prehistoric villages, soaring cliffs and immersive coastal settings, the Orkney Islands offer avid ramblers the hike of a lifetime.

Enjoy strolling to the likes of the Old Man of Hoy, an impressive, 449-foot Old Red Sandstone sea stack which towers above the glistening ocean waters. This popular sightseeing gem allows trekkers to observe panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Our experts at Ramble Worldwide create informative guided walks to help you uncover the true highlights of this beautiful archipelago. When venturing on our dedicated Orkney Islands itinerary, you will stay in the lively Scottish town of Stromness, where you can discover wonderful winding streets and historical sites like the Stromness Museum. 

Then, wander along rugged precipices, before exploring the intricate architecture and stained-glass windows in the Italian Chapel, on Lamb Holm.
