The Nev Cole Way and The Viking Way
With two long distance walks passing through the area there are plenty of opportunities for the keen walker to enjoy North Lincolnshire's lush and varied countryside, from the rolling chalk of the Lincolnshire Wolds to the tranquil Ancholme Valley.
The Nev Cole Way starts in North Lincolnshire at Burton upon Stather and travels westwards along the south bank of the Humber before leaving the area at North Killingholme.
The Viking Way enters North Lincolnshire at Barton upon Humber after crossing the Humber Bridge. It then meanders it way southward across the region heading towards the city of Lincoln, from where it makes its way to Oakham in Rutland, its final destination.
