Courses & Walks

At Sherwood Nordic Walking we are lucky to have fantastic regular venues as well as fabulous open countryside, nature reserves and bridleways to explore.


Technique Courses

Beginner’s Technique courses are on Wednesdays at Thoresby Park.

Each training course lasts for three sessions of around 1 hour and covers the INWA 10-step technique.

Monday Adventures

Mondays take place at Idle Valley Nature Reserve and Sherwood Pines

Our moderate paced adventure walks cover 4.5-6 miles. We alternate between Idle Valley Nature Reserve and Sherwood Pines.

Wednesday Walk Leader Adventures

The Wednesday Walk Leader Adventure walks are at a slower pace and cover a slightly shorter distance of 3.5 to 4.5 miles. These are perfect for newly trained nordic walkers, those with health concerns or those who haven’t been on a nordic walk for a while. Walk Leader Adventure walks are led by qualified Walk Leaders Tricia and Liz.


Clumber Park

Thursday Adventure walks are based at the National Trust’s Clumber Park where we are lucky enough to have acres of woodland tracks and lakeside footpaths to explore!

We venture off into the quieter parts of the 3,800 acre parkland and explore the less well known heathland and woodland.

We occasionally have a guided nordic walk where we learn interesting tales and facts about this magnificent park which was once one of the Ducal estates.

RSPB Sherwood Forest

Tuesday Adventure walks (or Hygge Tuesdays) take place at the RSPB Sherwood Forest. This fantastic venue changes week by week and offers a magical adventure in beautiful surroundings.

Saturday nordic and parkwalk at parkrun

We have a monthly adventure nordic walk taking place at a variety of our favourite venues. On other Saturdays we sometimes take part in parkwalk at parkrun at Clumber Park! Let us know if you fancy it and we can make sure you don’t nordic walk it alone.
