Nordic Walking Events, Excursions & Tours

Nordic Walking is a lifestyle activity, so supplement your regular fitness sessions by joining in on organised events, or single and multi-day excursions. There are even overseas tours for those who seek greater adventures and unforgettable life experiences (see Euro Alps Tour info below).

Organised fun runs and walking events are fantastic fun and provide a great training goal or excuse to get together with other Nordic Walking enthusiasts. Contact your local council, fitness centre or do a web search for a calendar of events in your area.
