Chilterns Walking Festival
The next Chilterns Walking Festival will take place Saturday 19th May to Sunday 3rd June 2018 and promises an exciting programme of hikes, guided tours and special events right across the Chilterns. But there are lots of opportunities to get out and get active all year round, you can join a walking group or do your own thing with a choice of over 200 promoted routes in the Chilterns. See below for some ideas.
Walk with the Chiltern Society!
The Chiltern Society organises a popular programme of walks throughout the year, designed to improve both physical and mental health. Anyone is welcome to join in their half-day walks, longer walks or occasional special interest walks. Most walks are around 5 miles long and there are 2 or 3 walks on offer every week.
Health Walks - walk your way to health!
A plethora of free health walks take place across the Chilterns each week. The often short, easy walks are run by trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and help people improve their health through walking. Find details of all walks and how to take part.

Follow this new self-led trail, activate all your senses and take the opportunity to touch, hear, feel, smell and see the past.
