A typical week on this walking holiday in Gozo

Arrival day

A short hop from Malta airport to the Gozo ferry. Take a dip in the sea before dinner.

Town and Country

A chance to enjoy coastal walking with fabulous views from the highest cliffs in Gozo, discover an ancient hunting ground of the knights of Malta and an introduction to the charming capital of Victoria.

Roman salt pans

From the small village of Ghasri, we follow old country roads to the seaside town of Marsalforn. From here, we explore the ancient salt pans which date back to the Romans before heading back inland along the route of an ancient water course.

The wild west

On the wild west coast we walk along the high cliffs of Wardija, and visit an ancient Punic spa, before dropping down to the natural wonders of the Azure Window and the inland sea. Following country paths, we head home via the knights’ watchtower, and prehistoric cave dwellings.
