Nantucket Walkabout is Nantucket’s only year-round guided hiking service offering natural history walks on Nantucket’s protected lands all over the island. We lead hikes during all seasons that inform on how, geologically, the island was created by the last glacier, how Nantucket got its unique collection of plants and wildlife, how and when Native Americans and European settlers impacted the island’s natural world, conservation efforts, and what the future may hold for Nantucket.
Nantucket Walkabout is not a tour bus or van service driving from sight to sight. We get out and walk into Nantucket’s wilderness to experience life off the road in all seasons. It’s part bird walk, part botany hike, part geology and all about exploration.
