What’s on offer?

Learn to Nordic Walk with three 1-2-1 instruction sessions

Learn to Nordic Walk

I am keen to teach others how to Nordic Walk because I can vouch for the benefits of this fantastic form of exercise that is accessible for all ages and abilities.

As a British Nordic Walking Instructor, I use the INWA 10 Step Method which is a tried and tested way of teaching people to Nordic Walk. This method ensures Nordic Walkers adopt the best posture and technique to get the most out of Nordic Walking as they progress through the Method. Developed by sports scientists and biomechanics experts, in conjunction with the development of ergonomically designed poles, this method of teaching Nordic Walking is recognised internationally. 

I offer three 1-2-1 Instruction sessions of sixty minutes because I think that three sessions will give you a good foundation on which to build up your Nordic Walking technique. Each session will be structured to ensure that you are confident with the 10 steps and able to consolidate that knowledge in order to become a Nordic Walker.

The total cost for three 1-2-1 Instruction sessions is £45 including the use of Nordic Walking poles.

Develop your Nordic Walking technique

These sessions are aimed at Nordic Walkers who would like to brush up their technique and develop their Nordic Walking skills further. Each session will be customised to suit the needs of the Nordic Walker and during the session there is the possibility of using video analysis to aid improvement.

Sessions can be attended by several Nordic Walkers if that is required, and it is up to each Nordic Walker to decide how many sessions they wish to have.

Each session will be 90 minutes long and the cost is £20 per person.

Nordic Trail Walks

Nordic Trail Walks

Get out and about on a Nordic Trail Walk with others. The walks will take advantage of the beautiful countryside and coastal views this area of the Southwest has to offer. I use Dartmoor, the South-West Coastal Path and woodland as inspiration for developing walks that will give walkers their daily dose of Vitamin N (nature).

This is an opportunity to use Nordic Walking poles in a more challenging environment with some walking on footpaths and some walking across open ground.

Nordic Trail Walks are advertised on the Moorland Guides website. Check out what is happening in the next month.

Nordic Trail Walks last for up to 3 hours and the cost is £15 per person.

Nordic Walking weekend breaks

If you are a regular Nordic Walker who relishes the thought of walking somewhere completely different to home or you would like the opportunity to learn to Nordic Walk in a beautiful location then a Nordic Walking break on Dartmoor could be what you are looking for.

Our Nordic Walking weekend breaks are based in Princetown and offer the chance to explore a picturesque part of the Dartmoor National Park. If you can already Nordic Walk there will be the option to have an optional coaching/refresher session prior to walking on the moor on Saturday. If you would like to learn to Nordic Walk then you will have an instruction session followed by a walk on both Saturday and Sunday. The itinerary for the weekend can be customised to suit your needs and walks will be designed to maximise your enjoyment of the moors.

Ramblers' Rest logo

We use the Ramblers’ Rest Guesthouse for accommodation. The Ramblers’ Rest is set up for walkers and the rooms at the guesthouse offer self-catering options with local shops in Princetown selling food that can be cooked in your room. However, should you wish to eat out there are several places to eat in Princetown. The Ramblers’ Rest is well situated, and you can walk straight on to Dartmoor from the guesthouse.
