Land's End Round

The Land's End Round combines the Far West of Cornwall coastal trail with the inland path of St Michael's Way, forming a circular walk exploring the wonderful Land's End Peninsula.

Setting off from Penzance, the walk traverses a dramatic coastline of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, before running inland through marshland and meadows of St Michael's Way.

This circular walk is perfect for those eager to explore the exciting history associated with the Land's End Peninsula, including the world-famous Pirates of Penzance and the ancient pilgrim's route of the Santiago de Compostela.

Customer reviews from the Land's End Round

“Lucky to walk the beautiful South West Coast Path in dry conditions in mid-winter. Accommodation was excellent in all locations and luggage transfers worked a treat. So easy and everything needed to know was provided.”
Mr Gambie, UK
“Very nice walks, stunning scenery all along the coast. All the B&BS were excellent – welcoming and helpful hosts, very nice food, comfortable beds and facilities. Clear directions on how to find them. Taxi service was excellent, very punctual, friendly and helpful. No problems with baggage transfers.”
Mr Fish, UK
“Lovely coastline but the path is quite challenging in places and the path between St. Ives and Zennor is exceptionally difficult. I think this is our 4th consecutive year in walking with your company and we have always enjoyed the experiences.”
Mr Furness, UK
“We enjoyed the holiday very much. Contours came through on everything that was promised. Our bags were always waiting for us, the accommodations were clean and comfortable, the hosts always obliging and the weather glorious.”
Ms Weir, USA
“Really fabulous holiday with friends that was almost seemless and the weather was better than predicted which was a bonus!”
Mrs Hollidge, UK
“It was the physically toughest thing I've ever done but I'm so pleased I've done it. I'd recommend Contours, love Contours and the way it works.”
Miss Hall, UK
“Having planned since 2019 and waited since 2020, our time in Cornwall was much anticipated and absolutely no disappointment! We could concentrate on the hike and eating. Contours took care of everything else. Beautiful! Already thinking about shorter, flatter possibilities.”
Mr Wooton, USA
“I had a wonderful holiday. Western Cornwall is a beautiful, the weather was very fine. Its was very well-planed. I think, I've found at least 5 other trips I really want to try, and I'm already planning next year's holiday with you.”
Ms Lildholdt, Denmark
“Happy with all the accommodations, very happy with maps and guidebooks and Contours service.”
