Get a whole lot more out of your walk...

Nordic Walking has become a regular exercise routine for many, offering a way to engage with nature, boost physical fitness, and foster social connections. It's an activity that welcomes everyone, catering to various ages, fitness levels, and abilities. At Walk Kernow, we take the accessibility of Nordic Walking a step further, providing a tailored approach to ensure everyone can revel in this delightful practice.


Starting with the Basics

Our journey into Nordic Walking begins with our 'Nordic Walking Beginners Workshops'. In these friendly, relaxed 90-minute sessions, our qualified INWA instructors teach you the 10 essential steps of Nordic Walking. It's an easy and fun way to get started, building confidence and skills.


Tailored Walk Levels

Recognising that our walkers have different needs and preferences, we offer walk levels ranging from gentle strolls to adventurous hikes:

Level 1 Walks: Ideal for gentle support, lasting just 30 minutes.

Level 2 Walks: For those building fitness, with manageable challenges.

Level 3 Walks: Perfect for exploring and maintaining physical and mental wellness.

Level 4 Walks: For the more adventurous, they can feature big hills and last up to a full day.


We always ensure the pace suits the group on the day, making each walk enjoyable for all.


1:1 Private Sessions

For those who prefer a more personalised experience, we offer 1:1 private sessions. These tailored walks meet your unique needs and comfort levels, making Nordic Walking accessible to everyone.
