Really lovely walk along the hill tops to the far end of the island and back by the road. The trip over by cable car may not be everyone's idea of fun but well worth the trip.

Ride the cable car over and walk or ride bikes around the island, watch the sound and the waters around the island to see whales!!

We loved taking the cable car over to dursey island! It was fun getting up close and personal with the grading sheep, as we hiked through the landscape. Fun to explore the old ruins and we even saw dolphins surfacing in the channel!

The cable car is a novel way to get out to this beautiful little island which as a family with kids 8-14 took about 4 hours to walk around. There's a shorter walk up the first peak which some decided to do, fewer people do...More

The chance to ride the cable car is a not to be missed experience! When it is windy, the car rocks as it crosses the short distance to the island. Once on land again, take the road for an easy stroll. There are options for...More

If you are anyway into walking hill walking, hiking or just admiring stunning scenery, Dursey Island is a must. The Cable Car ride over is a great unique experience. If you are in Bears do t miss it.
