Why nordic walk with Pembrokeshire paths ?

Some folk come for the exercise but there’s more to nordic walking than just exercise. We tempt our walkers into Pembrokeshire’s great outdoors and if they haven’t previously experienced the feeling of refreshment that comes from walking along peaceful paths, then that’s where we come in.

All our nordic walking is outdoors and we hold our training classes in stunning locations, taking advantage of the beautiful countryside and magnificent landscapes that is Pembrokeshire, deserted golden beaches, mysterious sacred hills and silent forgotten woodlands.

So it’s more than just a work out, it’s a walk out, we get out and begin to appreciate our marvellous open landscape.

Not only do we offer beginner training classes but we offer regular nordic social walks around West Wales. We also arrange nordic walking holidays and classes, showing off the “best of Pembrokeshire’s beautiful countryside and landscape”.
