St Helena is a runner's and walker's paradise, with many interesting courses ranging from gentle strolls along country roads to climbing up grassy paths to appreciate the island's dramatic contrasts and spectacular scenery. For the fit but not faint-hearted, there is the opportunity to discover more isolated parts of the island; good walking boots are recommended for these walks. The St Helena Nature Conservation Group volunteers have restored the pathways of 20 walks around the island. At the end of each walk is a post box, which contains a unique ink-stamp and a visitor's book. The individual courses have been given a difficulty rating on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the most difficult and 1 being the easiest) so the athlete can feel absolutely confident that they will not exceed their abilities. Every course has its own Walking Guide leaflet that gives you a detailed description of how to get to the course and things to look out for along the way, offering you breathtaking views of St Helena's coastal and inland areas and is a must for nature-lovers, runners and avid hikers.
