Freshwalks. The classic experience.

Our Classic walks are the original Freshwalks experience; in the countryside, on the coast, in the mountains and on the moorlands. From easy half-day 8km rambles to epic full-day 30km treks, these walks offer the perfect blend of networking and exercise all year round. No matter the weather.

Allow yourself or your team a day out of the office to boost physical fitness, improve mental wellbeing and bond with other like-minded business professionals over a shared sense of achievement.

The rush of adrenaline and release of endorphins will almost certainly tinge you with that legendary Freshwalks feeling. It’s positively contagious. And if not, the home-cooked pub food and locally brewed ales will surely do the trick for you.

  • Exercise to improve physical fitness
  • Improve mental performance
  • Connect and collaborate with like minded professionals
  • Reduce stress, increase creativity
  • Push your comfort zone, shared sense of achievement
  • Pub food and drinks to celebrate
