Get Active

The heart of Derbyshire is the perfect place for those that like the outdoors with many activities in the Amber Valley to keep you entertained and get you out and about. 


Get your swing action ready by trying your hand at one of our golf courses, experience a gentle cycle ride along the Midshires Way or turn to the rod and line if you prefer a more gentle pursuit.


The Autumn Footprints Walking Festival takes place in September.  Why not join in one of the free guided walks and learn about the history of the area.  Local leaders offer excellent knowledge and interesting facts along the routes.


We also offer activity breaks for those wishing to indulge for a weekend or for those special occasions why not try a balloon ride and discover more of the beautiful countryside or participate in the relaxing range of art workshops and painting courses on offer.
