We have two aims:
to promote the interests of local walkers in Wellington;
to promote Wellington to walkers elsewhere.
For details of our earlier festivals see the news page for the year or the brief history page.
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.
