Nordic Walking in the Vale of the Lune

For beginners & experienced Nordic walkers

You can almost smell the coal smoke of the wheezing old steam engine. The rails have long gone but the trackbed and station remain preserved as a reminder of yesteryear. Luckily old railways are flat and straight. Ideal terrain for Nordic walking!

 

The Lune River rises in Cumbria at Ravenstonedale and flows south through Lancaster to meet the sea at Glasson. It flows through some beautiful scenery from the high Pennines around Kirkby Lonsdale to the coastal mud flats around Glasson. The walking is tremendously varied but not hugely demanding allowing the Nordic walker to enjoy some exercise amongst beautiful scenery.

 

When Nordic Walking you will burn more calories, give yourself a good aerobic workout, strengthen your upper body and reduce the stress on the joints. Originally known as Ski Walking, Nordic Walking is just ordinary walking made up to 40% more effective by the use of specially designed poles and using your upper body as well as your legs. This holiday is suitable for experienced as well as novice walkers.
