Morecambe Bay Crossing Weekend +

Morecombe Bay September 2018

Date: September 2019
Location: Morecambe Bay Crossing

Following on from last year's successful weekend, we are once again heading north. We will travel by coach to Lancaster. Over the weekend, we will have a guided Nordic walk in a beautiful part of Lancashire with a qualified Mountain Leader and Nordic walking instructor, followed by a guided historical tour of the region. In the evening, we will travel by coach to a pub for a well-earned evening meal, and possibly a few drinks! On Sunday, we will travel to Arnside and nordic walk eight miles across the bay with the Queen's Guide to the Sands Cedric Robinson MBE. No need to worry about logistics, getting lost, reading a map, organising the itinerary etc! All is included! This is a great opportunity for fellow Nordic walkers to get together and socialise in a lovely part of England.
