She is more used helping holiday makers explore to the rolling hills, lines of cypress trees and olive groves of Italy but in the coming months a professional walking guide will be introducing people to a very different landscape.

Tanya Eldridge has years of experience taking walking tours around the Abruzzo region of Italy but for the next few months she plans to lead ramblers around the north Norfolk coast as she explores the region herself.

Based at Deepdale Backpackers in Burnham Deepdale, she will be offering guided walks which she hopes will help some explore the area for the first time and possibly introduce those who live in Norfolk to new paths and byways.

She said: “The countryside of the north Norfolk coast is distinctly different to the Abruzzo area because Abruzzo is mountainous.

“I was attracted to Deepdale because of the eco friendly nature of the facilities and the awards they've won.

“Their ethos is one I connect with and the customers will love the guided walks I'm offering.

Jason Borthwick, one of the owners of Deepdale Backpackers, said he felt that though Norfolk may not be mountainous the regions beauty and wildlife could compete with anywhere in the world.

Guided walks take place today , January 26 and February 12.
