Guided Walks

Join our regular monthly guided wildlife walks – either here in beautiful Devon or neighbouring Avon see below.

Visit the best wildlife sites, acquire new ID skills, or simply enjoy a guided wildlife walk with others, there should be something here for you. Whichever walk you attend, my aim is always the same; to enable people to learn about wildlife in easy, bite-size chunks and ensure both your knowledge and connection to nature grows. 

Want to join us? Email us at info@devonwildlifetours.co.uk and we will add you to our dedicated mailing list for monthly walks.

Everyone is welcome irrespective of background or baseline knowledge
– Each walk is approximately 2 – 3 hours covering up to three miles taken at a slow and pleasant wildlife-watching pace
– The terrain varies but typically involves a mixture of easy to moderate walking accessible for anyone with suitable footwear and a can-do attitude*
– Start time varies to maximise our encounters with wildlife but include both early starts and more typical times i.e. start at 10am and finish at 1pm

*For those who need significant assistance with walking, be it a walking stick or wheelchair, please do speak to me directly in advance to discuss suitability of individual walks.
