These Wolds were made for Walking!

9th March 2017

The Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival is fast approaching, and the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, in partnership with Heritage Lincolnshire, is gearing up for a fabulous 16 days of walking from Saturday 20 May.

Now in its 13th year, the festival will offer over 100 guided walks, led by experienced volunteers, across the length and breadth of the Lincolnshire Wolds, and a bit further besides. Whether you want to get out for a morning leg-stretcher, work off your lunch with an afternoon walk, pack a bag for an all-day stomp or make a date with friends for an after-work evening walk, the festival has it all. You can even experience the Wolds by moonlight if you join one of our night walks.

Walking is a great, low-impact, way to exercise. Good for a positive spirit as well as a healthy heart. No worry if currently you don't get out much. We have gentle walks, starting at one mile (with lots of stops) as well as challenging strides pushing up to 20 miles. Many of our walks offer something extra too. Why not join an experienced guide to discover more about the wonderful Lincolnshire Wolds landscape, the East Midlands' only nationally designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can learn about our industrial past, historic canals, archaeological remains, beautiful churches, deserted medieval villages, farming practices and local flora and fauna. There is plenty for families to enjoy too, with fun outdoors events happening all through May half term.


Have we whetted your appetite? To find out more about the festival, check out individual walks or download a brochure, just click here. Alternatively, look out for a brochure in your local library, Tourist Information Centre and other venues around the Wolds. We look forward to seeing you in May!
