Nordic Walking at High Lodge

Nordic Walking is a great, low impact workout which burns 20-40% more calories than walking normally. By using specially designed poles you work all the major muscles in the body, without putting unnecessary strain on your joints. This makes it a fantastic way to stay active and burn more calories! 

Explorer WALX

Explorer WALXs provide a fantastic way to improve your fitness levels whilst maximising the health benefits of being in the great outdoors and enjoying the fabulous scenery along the trails at High Lodge. These 2 mile walks around the Forest are primarily on flat terrain, but can be muddy on occasions. Allow 1 hour for the walk.

Own poles are required for these WALXs. For enquiries, email pippa@walxiceni.co.uk.
