The walk is approximately 5¼ miles (8.5kms) long and takes in most of the coastal paths as well as the Spine Road which runs through the centre of the island. The walk starts and finishes at Herm Harbour. There will be a water station at Robert’s Cross. Herm paths are uneven in places so appropriate footwear should be worn. The numbers for walkers taking part in the Herm Walk are limited. Once the number is reached, no more entries can be accepted.
On Monday 6th May, the Travel Trident boat leaves Guernsey at 08.30. Please show your sponsorship form at the Travel Trident ticket kiosk by the Weighbridge. Travel Trident has generously agreed to donate half of the fare of walkers taking part to the World Aid Walk charity. Ticket prices: £9.00 adult, £4.50 child, £1 infant, paid for by cash or cheque only. These prices are for same day return.
The boat arrives in Herm at approximately 08:50 and the Walk will start at 09:30 by the Harbour. Walkers must check in at the Harbour Walk desk before starting and where you will be given your walker number which must be worn on your back.

When walkers have completed the walk they will be given a tea, coffee or soft drink at the Snack Bar in the Mermaid Tavern courtyard on production of their walker number by courtesy of Herm Island Ltd. For further information about Herm go to our website herm.com
The walk will go ahead even in rain but in the event of strong winds and possible disruption to the ferry service please call Travel Trident 721379 or Herm Island 750000 for more information. We regret that no entries can be accepted on the day from walkers travelling from Guernsey.
Since the first World Aid Walk was started in 1970 the event has raised more than three quarters of a million pounds to help people in need around the world. Funds raised will go directly towards the work of ActionAid, Christian Aid, Hope for a Child, Oxfam, Save the Children and The Tumaini Fund in such places. Those taking part in the Herm walk will be raising money for these charities.
We look forward to welcoming you and hope that you have an enjoyable day in Herm!
