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

Tuesday Beginner’s Technique courses are at Thoresby Park.

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

Monday and Friday Adventures

Mondays and Fridays are our Adventure walk days.

Come and explore North Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire on our 4-5 miles Adventure walks. We visit Clumber Park, the Chesterfield canal, Idle Valley nature reserve and Creswell Crags, as well as many other planned and risk assessed routes across open countryside and woodland.

Wednesday Walk Leader Adventures

The Wednesday Walk Leader Adventure walks are at a slower pace and cover a shorter distance of 3 1/2 to 4 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 take place at the RSPB Sherwood Forest. This fantastic venue changed week by week and offers a magical adventure in beautiful surroundings.
