One of the joys of Nordic walking is the strength and stamina it builds, enabling us to explore with confidence the extraordinary countryside in Norfolk. We have so much on our backdoor step, from reed-fringed broads to vast sandy beaches, mysterious marshland and rural, tiny hamlets off the beaten track.
So I am thrilled to be able to share our next series of scenic Weekend Walks which intersperses familiar favourites with new venues. Our walks vary in distance with different levels of difficulty to provide something for everyone.
Top tip: Book up early! These walks can get full up FAST and with 15 people max per walk, beat the rush….
