iWalk Cornwall guided walks app

Our walks are available via a guided walk mobile app for Apple iPhones and iPads and for Android phones and tablets. The iWalk app is effectively a "SatNav" for walking, providing detailed directions and information about the local area, based on your current location (but doesn't talk at you, allowing you to enjoy your walk in peace).

Walks are each available for £2.99, the income from which pays towards the costs of creating and continually maintaining the content of each walk.

The iWalk app includes a free walk (Lanhydrock Gardens) and a simulation mode so you can try out the functionality for yourself before purchasing any walks.

What does the iWalk app do?

Each walk purchased through the app contains detailed navigation directions and points of interest. It also contains a map of the walk route and surrounding area, showing where you are on it and which way you are facing. There's more too - full details of what each walk includes are here.

Using the GPS receiver on your phone/tablet, the app:

  • Gives you directions with a beep/vibrate notification when there’s a new direction for you to follow (+ supports Apple/Android smart watches).
  • Gives you information about points of interest along the walk.
  • Warns you if you wander off the walk route.
  • Tells you how far to the next direction, estimates walk time remaining and monitors battery drain rate.

Once a walk is downloaded onto your phone/tablet, the app doesn’t need an internet connection whilst you do the walk. The app also integrates with your phone's built-in satnav software for driving to help you get to the start of the walk.

The app also allows you to feed back footpath issues so we can work with the Local Authority countryside team to get these fixed.

Wonderful walk, great weather helped, on the spot directions & interesting snippets about the places we walked through - thank you 🙂
Lovely walk in October sunshine. Well researched route and easy to use app.
Really love the way the walks are marked. App is super convenient to use with the directions automatically popping up for the next point on the way. The best part was the information provided along the route. Would highly recommend the app.
Even I couldn’t get lost with this app and I can’t navigate my way out of the proverbial paper bag 😂
Love this app, so easy to use. The notifications of our next steps were accurate and delivered just as we needed them.
I walk Cornwall is a great app - plenty walks and choices. One detail that would be a great addition is the proportion of the walk on the road
Excellent app can't recommend it enough. Easy instructions lots of info along way and added help of map guidance.
A great app! Discovered areas we would not have otherwise found. Directions were excellent. Well worth the paying for the routes - really enjoyed the walks and the history /commentary.
We love walking in Cornwall and this app gives us a whole range of new options. Easy to use and great value. I also like the interactive feedback option where the author will change the description if you make observations after the walk.
Just completed the third walk of our holiday using the iWalk Cornwall app. Each walk was excellent. Each had clear instructions and additional information about the area. Visited some lovely places including Portreath and the Bedruthan steps. Will let all my friends and family know of this app when they visit Cornwall.
