Description

Following the historic trail of pilgrims to Canterbury, the North Downs Way takes us from Farnham to Dover.

The beautiful landscape with its ridges of hills, chalk cliffs and grasslands is interspersed with picturesque villages, castles and palaces and churches well worth seeing.

From Surrey through one of the most forested parts of England to Kent with its open chalk country and the famous white cliffs.

On the way we can discover rare butterflies and orchids, we hike through vineyards and orchards and always have a good view over the surroundings.
