Raynor Winn and Paddy Dillon: the transformative power of long-distance walking

The South West Coast Path and trekking in Iceland


Bestselling author of 'The Salt Path' and 'The Wild Silence', Raynor Winn is a long-distance walker and advocate who writes about nature, homelessness and wild camping. While walking the South West Coast Path and trekking in Iceland, Raynor grew to trust the words of author Paddy Dillon, one of Cicerone's most prolific guidebook writers. In this episode of highlights from our Cicerone Live event, we reunited Raynor and Paddy to share their stories and experiences of long-distance trails. Our guests explored the addictive and transformative power of long-distance walking, friendships and communities formed through sharing the outdoors, how to protect our environment and national trails, and whether Paddy really is a superhuman walker.
