When to go
All year round
This adventure takes place near the village of Mundford (Norfolk), a town surrounded by beautiful countryside. If you’re looking for a gentle day in the great British outdoors, then a walk in Thetford Forest is a great option.
On the day you can expect your guide to meet you at 9.30am in the village of Mundford. From there you will set off on your forest walk.
Thetford Forest is an amazing habitat to explore, with it's patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves providing the ideal setting for a rich variety of animal and plant life. Your guide will help you uncover the hidden flora and fauna of this environment. For some history and heritage there is also the opportunity to discover Mildenhall Warren and Lynford Arboretum.
All in all this is a fantastic option because it’s very easy to travel to and it requires minimal kit or fitness.
We recommend you first send the guide a booking request to agree a date. Then book your accommodation if needed. Adventure sorted!
