It's huge in Europe, and now you can do it in the UK. From 22nd October, the UK's original Nordic Ski Trail re-opens for another winter season, set in the beautiful grounds of Stockeld Park, near Wetherby in Yorkshire.
The 1.2km trail, which winds through woodland and around a lake, is designed to give novices an introduction to the sport, using authentic Nordic ski equipment on the gently undulating trail. And because the track is artificial, there's no reliance on the white stuff!
What's more it's a great way to keep the pre-Christmas kilos at bay - Nordic skiing burns up more calories per hour than any other sport through low-risk, low-impact aerobic exercise. It's also an ideal cross-training sport for running or biking. And because it uses the body's natural movements, it has a very short learning curve. Nature's gym at her finest!
Whether you are an experienced skier or have never skied before, it's lots of fun and can be enjoyed by all ages. Plus, you can also take in the magical sights of the Enchanted Forest while you go.
The trail is part of 'The Christmas Adventure', where winter fun is at its nostalgic best. As well as the skiing, visitors can skate on a huge outdoor rink, stroll through an Enchanted Forest, get lost in a vast Snowflake Maze and enjoy refreshments in the Woodland Café.
We advise children less than 6 should not ski, and we consider that children less than 8 years old may find the ski trail quite tiring. All children 17 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult on the ski track or walking along the parallel trail (1 adult for every 5 children).
Please note: Fright Night events are happening from 17.30 to 21.30 on Tuesday 29th - Thursday 31st October. Consequently, tickets to the Enchanted Forest, Maze and Nordic ski trail must be used before 16.30.
Please see our Halloween Half Term Special Events page for more information, tickets can be purchased online and at the ticket office subject to availability.
Please Note: Any guests entering the Adventure Zones, gift emporium or cafe after 2.30pm on Sunday 2nd November 2014 will need to purchase a Fireworks ticket.
The Enchanted Forest and Nordic Ski trail will close 20 mins before our firework spectacular, these will re open after the display has finished.
