Festival of Winter Walks

The Ramblers Festival of Winter Walks is back from 20 December to 5 January and everyone’s invited. 

We’d love you to join us in the winter wanderland, helping you to connect with more people locally, explore beautiful landscapes and discover a new feeling with every walk.

We know the festive season can leave many of us feeling overwhelmed, stressed and disconnected from nature. So, our winter walks can help you unwind on winding paths and let go with every leaf crunched.

Our groups across the country are offering an array of free led festive walks for you to try. From heart-racing hikes to serene strolls, we’ve got a winter wander for you. 

Follow us

Why not follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, for all the latest news from the Ramblers and the Festival.

We’d love to hear about your experience of winter walking. Show support for the festival on social media and share your photos with us on #walkinwinter.
