Join us to walk for Wicken Fen

Wicken Fen from the viewing platform

Join us on Sunday 13 October for a 7.5 or 12.5 kilometre walking challenge into the wider reserve at Wicken Fen, to raise money in support of the Eyes over the Fen project.

Help us raise money towards our Eyes over the Fen project to provide an elevated hide and higher viewing platform for a great bird’s eye view across the historic Sedge Fen.  This project will also enable visitors to enjoy a panoramic vista during times of the year when some paths are rested for conservation reasons.  Funds raised from the sponsored walk will help to provide all-user access to the new elevated hide and viewing platform via boardwalk that will rise to give entrance to the elevated hide part of the structure.

Try a Sunday walk

Give one of our friendly Sunday walks a try as a training walk.  Meet us in the Visitor Centre at 11am on Sunday 18 August and/or Sunday 15 September for a 3-4 mile walk at a steady pace with one of our rangers.  No need to book, the walks are free and open to all walkers - you don't need to be an experienced walker to join us.

Choose your route

Choose from a 7.5km or 12.5km route around Adventurers’ and Burwell Fens.  The shorter route takes you along the picturesque Monk’s Lode and through Baker’s Fen where our konik ponies and highland cattle roam freely.  If you choose the longer route, you will be able to follow a raised path that is off the beaten track and provides a great view of the Burwell Fen area.
