Surrey Hills Nordic Walking runs sessions in a number of locations throughout the Surrey Hills, centred around Dorking, where our beginners courses are held (other locations by arrangement).

Power of Poles sessions

If you are a complete beginner, booking in to our regular Power of Poles coaching sessions is the way to go. There are two workshops, and you will be up and Nordic walking after the first introductory session. You will receive the NWUK Freedom Passport, your certificate of competence, and will be ready to join classes with us and other NWUK groups across the country. We will work with you to progress your technique, advise you on pole purchase, and be here to advise you where to go next!

Refresher sessions

If you have Nordic walking experience or have a Freedom Passport but have had a break from Nordic walking, we can also organise refresher sessions so that you can brush up on the technique you learnt during your original beginners course.

Group Walks

Regular walks take place in term time to suit all levels, from Wellbeing Walks to Workout Walks, and occasional Adventure Walks – challenge yourself as much or as little as you want. If you are not sure which level would suit you best, just ask us.

All walks are led by a qualified Surrey Hills Nordic Walking instructor. You must have already been taught how to Nordic walk by a qualified instructor before joining one of these sessions – if you haven’t yet, please see above for how to get on board!

Wellbeing Walks – Walking for Health

These classes are perfect for beginners and those who prefer to walk about 2-3 miles/hour. The focus is on perfecting technique, whilst enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Surrey Hills surroundings.

Workout Walks – Walking for Fitness

These classes are designed to work on fitness levels by walking at a pace of 3-4 miles/hour. These sessions can include strength, balance and cardiovascular exercises.

Adventure Walks

These are occasional longer walks which enable us to explore the Surrey Hills further, often including a pub lunch stop.

Other sessions

Team building workshops

Are you looking for an activity to add to your conference or team building day? Leave your desks behind and network in the great outdoors. Nordic walking is an activity that everyone can participate in. It’s a great way to have a bit of fun and learn something new. 

Courses for businesses, clubs and associations

We can run courses for your business, social and sporting club, or social / educational association – organisations we have run courses for in the past include The Hurlingham Club in Fulham, and local U3A (University of the Third Age) groups.
