We haven’t organised or run any expeditions for quite some while, although we have Nordic Walked in Crete in September 2012 and April 2013, and in Florida during 2012/2013.
Everything below here is to give you an idea of what we have done in the past, and may do again in the future.
This page gives all the details of the micro- and mini-expeditions being organised by Walking for Happiness.
Here’s the map of all the walks planned so far.
Check out our store for Nordic Walking poles and other kit.

(No, don’t … they were all in 2011!)
It takes you to the Facebook Event: just click the “I am attending” button. (If the booking link doesn’t work, it’s because the walk is in the past! But you could still do it.)

There will be a one-hour Nordic Walking Intro class starting at 9:30am at each location, and the walk proper will start at 10:30am. Reckon we will probably achieve about 2mph overall, to give you an idea of when we might get back.
NOTE that Stokenchurch and Inkpen Beacon are Good Friday and Easter Monday, and Box Hill and Leith Hill are Sunday/Monday on the late spring bank holiday.
This is designed that way on purpose, to give you the chance to begin experiencing walking on more than one day.
If you miss any walk, they will be repeated.
NOTE: Date change since first printed programme (Date of change 8th March 2011, 22:27)
