Hikes & Nature Connection Events

Discover the best hiking trails in the Surrey Hills

We don’t just take you on a walk. We combine best kept secrets, celebrating nature’s seasonal changes, and invite you to switch off and immerse yourself into your senses on your walk. We love a café, and we have some gems of local history to share with you. The full details of all of our upcoming hikes are over here on our Events Listings.

Simone knows the Surrey Hills like the back of her hand; she keeps surprising even established walkers with new paths and points of interest. She is a North Downs Ambassador and passionately shares her love of the countryside and how the wood-wide web relates to us humans and our well-being.

 

What to expect

Most walks are medium-paced walks with several stops to take in nature’s best views and insights. During your walk you may…

• Walk a less trodden path to explore some local history
• Receive some seasonal prompts and invitation to activate your senses
• Pause to discover a unique wayside herb
• Observe the journey of an acorn to become a 100-year-old oak tree
• Get some insights why and how humans respond to the seasons
• Get a glimpse into how nature and human are all connected and not separate

Why not join our friendly, welcoming group, connected through their love of nature and walking for well-being. Find a list of upcoming hikes below or for more details go to our EVENTS page.
