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

Wild Bowland: Cross o’ Greet & Bowland Knotts

Cross of Greet Bridge – River Hodder – Bowland Knotts – Raven’s Castle – Cross of Greet Bridge

This rugged walk links the two high level passes across the Forest of Bowland, traversing some wild upland territory where merlin and peregrine scythe across the moorland and lonely gritstone outcrops punctuate the primal landscape. While it’s a relatively short walk, this is tough terrain and it will present a stern test, but the rewards are a sense of splendid isolation beyond the reach of mobile phone coverage and a chance to reconnect with the wild amid some stunning scenery in one of England’s last wilderness areas.
