Writers Walk

Explore the art of writing and discover new inspiration, while hiking in the scenic nature of the island of Endelave. A Writers Walk is for the skilled author and the word-loving debutant - as long as you have got a story to tell.

Let nature guide your writings

Do you like to hike? Do you love to write? If so, a Writers Walk is just for you! 
In short, a Writers Walk is a guided hike with planned breaks for creative writing exercises - a walk where you write.  

On a Writers Walk the focus is not on the distance traveled in miles, but rather on the journey traveled within - in terms of reflection, motivation, and the courage it takes to put words onto paper. 


Guided hikes on the Kanino or the Coastal Path

With Birgit Juel Martinsen, the owner of Writers Walk, you are in safe hands out on the trails, as well as in terms of creative guidance on your Writers Walk. Birgit has been hiking and writing her whole life, and her vision for starting Writers Walk was to aspire others to fully tap into the joy of writing by being in nature. 

You can see all available tours here - and read more about distance, requirements, terrain and location.  

Practical information

A Writers Walk usually takes approximately 4-5 hours, lunch included. Generally, a tour starts before lunch and ends late in the afternoon.  

It is recommended that you bring your own backpack with water, coffée/tea and some light snacks. 

A Writers Walk is set in the outdoors, so always dress appropriately in regards to the conditions. If the weather makes it difficult to embark on a tour, Birgit will contact all participants and try to reschedule.
