Nordic walk under our big skies

Happy days! Well they are when you are out on Nordic walking.

The Fitness Practice offers walks throughout the week - daytime and evenings - and at weekends.

We have a current offer of our favourite walks but we are researching new ones all the time so do contact us to find out the latest. Also let us know when YOU want to go and where.

Here are a few if our Nordic walker’s favourites – all of which offer opportunities for those that just want a gentle, social walk to those that want to get more of a workout.


So many superlatives to describe the Avebury landscape with its oodles of mystery, history and wild simplicity. Our Nordic walks pass through the many wonders of pre-historic Britain that Avebury has to offer and also strides out onto the famous Ridgeway. The added bonus here is that your walk with The Fitness Practice will support the National Trust and you will meet and learn more from on of their fantastic Rangers.

Calstone and Cherhill Downs

Walk around the magnificent chalk bowl marked by the third oldest white horse in Britain and explore the secret coombes of Calstone. Our Nordic walks here are full of breathtaking views and wild flowers aplenty.

Fyfield Downs

An all time favourite with the bountiful sarcen stones, known as the ‘sarcen train’ randomly scattering the landscape – an antithesis to the structured monuments of the nearby Avebury Stone Circle. One of the country’s oldest national nature reserves and once you get your wildlife eye in it’s easy to see why. Our Nordic walks at Fyfield follow the numerous trails and footpaths through this reserve.

Pewsey Downs Nature Reserve

A Nordic walk in another of Wiltshire’s wild gems. With stunning views stretching across the Vale of Pewsey to Salisbury Plain and the swooping hills of the Marlborough Downs to discover the abundance of stunning Nordic walks here. Come and walk to Wiltshire’s highpoint or get the best vantage point to view one of Wiltshire’s wonders – crop circles. The aliens live it here too.

Caen Hill Locks

A gentle, social walk along the Kennet and Avon Canal. Chat to the barge crews as they ascend the 29 locks on the Kennet and Avon canal, the lovely folk of the Canal and River Trust, dog walkers, walkers, bird spotters and fishermen. You name them – they’re all out enjoying this fantastic place.
