Located within easy reach of the British Isles, neatly positioned just 31 miles from England and 31 miles from Ireland, you’ll find the beautiful island paradise that is the Isle of Man. The jewel in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man offers an incredible landscape of narrow inland glens, a tapestry of moorland and rolling hills. Rich in history and steeped in legend it provides visitors with an extraordinary experience and is the first entire country in the world to be awarded UNESCO Biosphere status raising awareness of areas, projects and activities that help to make the Island unique. A proud achievement indeed!

The Isle of Man has some of the best walking routes in the UK - from our magnificent heather-clad uplands with their far reaching views to the stunning coastline with its dramatic landscapes; it really is a walkers paradise.

The biodiversity of the island is abundant with geology, wildlife, flowers, and birdlife all waiting to be discovered in landscapes that take your breath away. Mountainous moorland upland habitats brimming with life and contrasting colours, a dramatic coastline that’s been created over millions of years in perfect contrast to the lush rolling green pastures, not forgetting our magical and mystical national glens...there's so much to see.
