Wellington Walking Festival



Easy: Less than 5 miles, terrain mainly flat

Moderate:  5-10 miles, may include some hills or rough ground

Strenuous: 10+ miles, may include some hills or rough ground.

Very Strenuous: 10+ miles, includes steep ascents / descents, or rough ground

In keeping with our pledge to Plastic Free Wellington we urge those coming on our walks to use reusable, not single use, water bottles.  

In addition, we ask those on longer walks to use reusable cutlery, and avoid the use of cling film and other single use items in their packed lunches.

Terms & Conditions

The organising agencies have checked the routes and identified hazards. It is the responsibility of the individual to check that the walk is suitable for their walking ability and that they attend at the start of the walk for the briefing.

Everyone should wear appropriate footwear and clothing. 

Some of the walks are on steep hills and near potential hazards. 

Please ensure you are ready to start walking at the stated time.

Assistance dogs welcome.

Other well-behaved dogs only by prior agreement with the leader (email to the address below).

The organisers of the Festival reserve the right to alter the  programme without prior notice.

The details in the programme are believed to be correct at the time of publication of the printed programme.

Any changes will be reflected in the on-line events, and communicated to those who have booked.

No liability will be accepted for loss or injury that occurs as a result of taking part in any walk.
