What we're about

Join us - RAIN OR SHINE - for "Fun, Fitness, and Friendship".

The Bastion City Wanderers Walking Club, officially known as the Bastion City Wanderers Volkssport Club, holds organized walks in the Nanaimo and surrounding areas every Saturday morning, all year round. We have a lot of fun and are always keen to welcome newcomers. Our club was formed in 1994 and we have been on Meetup since 2017. Come and join us to improve your fitness while developing new friendships while walking and hiking.

As a new walker, you would be entitled to 5 FREE walks. After that, you may wish to become a full-fledged member of our club. An annual membership is $10. Once you're a member, it's just $1.00 for every walk you do, or you can buy a Walk Pass that entitles you to unlimited walks for a year for $15. Non-members pay $2.00 per walk after they've completed their 5 free walks.

If you're looking for something to do that's healthful, non-competitive, and provides the opportunity to meet new people, our club may fit the bill. If you'd like to give us a try, just show up at the start point of one of our walks and let the host know that you're new.

If you have any questions, please post them here on Meetup.
