What to Wear and Bring with you

We provide all the Nordic Walking Poles, however if you really get hooked and get your own set of poles then feel free to bring them along with you.

Footwear: For the hour sessions it is best to wear a pair of trainers you don’t mind getting muddy.  If you haven’t any next best thing is walking boots and after that any sturdy shoes. Please don’t wear ballet pumps or other slip on shoe, open toed footwear or heels.  For some of the longer walks you may be better with walking boots rather than trainers, depending on the terrain, we’ll let you know when this is the case.  

Clothing: Please have a waterproof jacket with you on all walks incase it rains.  On the longer walks it is advisable to have waterproof trousers, and an additional sweatshirt or insulating jacket with you as well.  Hats and gloves are also advised on the longer walks and on the short walks in cold weather


Please bring water with you to all sessions, as you are likely to get thirsty.
