What we're about

Fun, Fitness, and Friendship - The Victoria Pathfinders Walking Club (a Volkssport club) has been offering a variety of walks throughout Greater Victoria since 1989. Most of our walks are 10 km in length, with 5 km options on our weekend walks. To enjoy our walks you should be comfortable walking five kilometers in an hour or 10 km in two hours.

If you would like to explore parts of Greater Victoria you never knew existed with friendly people who will welcome you to the group, then our walks are for you. At your first walk you will be asked to sign a waiver and at each walk you will be required to pay a participation fee of $1 or $2 depending on the walk. We charge this small fee to offset our costs. (We also sell discount cards – 20 walks for $10 – that can be used for any $1 walk.) Annual membership is $10.

If you are looking for something to do that's enjoyable, healthful, and non-competitive why not give one of our walks a try? We'd love to meet you!
