Learn to Nordic Walk session

The format for the session will be:

  • Provision of a set of poles (properly set up according to your height);
  • A short introduction about Nordic walking, its benefits and its origin;
  • Instruction on steps 1-5 of the INWA 10 Step Method ™;
  • A 2-3 mile walk from Souter Lighthouse;
