The Hills of Tuscany &
The West of Ireland

What to expect from a walking tour

David Whyte’s walking tours combine his poetry and philosophy with breathtaking walks, superb meals and an opportunity to meet extraordinary people deeply committed to their place in the world.

On any given day, you may be introduced to a poet, a farmer, a group of world-class musicians, a passionate scholar or a larger-than-life, Dante-reciting chef. No matter the location, you are invited into a circle of friendship that takes you deep into the local culture.

The 2025 walking tour dates, locations and application process will be announced in December 2024.

Each morning, after breakfast, David sets the tone for the day with a talk and poetry.

This gathering is followed by the day’s activities, including a few beautiful walks or hikes, and delicious, local food. We don’t provide an itinerary, preferring to give participants an experience of awakening into each new day with openness to what may unfold.

Although the landscape and culture are unique to each location, all walking tours are extraordinary, moveable feasts for mind, body and spirit.
