New Forest Walking Festival 2014

From October 18th to Sunday 2nd November, for the second year running, the New Forest National Park have organised the New Forest Walking Festival.  Following the success of last year’s inaugural walk….this year’s event has doubled in size!

Walkers of all ages are invited to don their hiking boots, trainers or wellies and be led on bespoke experiences, by expert guides, highlighting the unique countryside, wildlife, culture and history of this internationally important landscape.

The autumn is an incredible time of year to walk around the National Park, with fiery foliage providing the perfect backdrop for exploring the gentle flat landscape that has been shaped over the centuries by grazing ponies, cattle and pigs.  Discover birds, beasts and unravel historical secrets.

More walks are being added every week, among the confirmed walks so far are:
  • World War II History Hike
  • Family Fungi Fun
  • Map Reading Walks
  • Walking Picnics
  • Salt and Smuggling Trail
  • Nordic Walking 

The guided walks are accessible by public transport, and most are free or discounted if you arrive by bus, train, bike or on foot! So be green this autumn…. and leave your car at home!
Free minibuses will be provided for some walks which have no public transport links.

Want to visit but need accommodation? To book a New Forest Cottage visit our website for the latest availability this coming week.
