Welcome to North London Outdoor Group (also known as Barnet YHA Group)

North London Outdoor Group (also known as Barnet YHA Group) organises walking weekends away throughout the year, weekend day walks, summer evening walks and social events for members. We organise about 20 weekends away each year.
We currently have about 70 members in the age range 30s to 50s and above, living in North London and Hertfordshire.
Whether you live in the North London area or are just here temporarily, you are welcome to join us to explore the countryside of England and Wales. You can try out the group by joining us on any day walk or evening walk listed in our programme of events. Unless stated otherwise in the programme, you can simply turn up on the day with no need to book in advance.
You don't need a car to come on our day walks or weekends away. For day walks, we normally meet outside Barnet Odeon and share cars to travel to the start of the walk (although you can make your own travel arrangements if you prefer). We also have car-sharing arrangements for our weekends away, and we book the accommodation for you.
On most of our weekends away, we stay in budget accommodation provided by the YHA. As we are affiliated to YHA (England and Wales) Ltd, our members can stay in YHA accommodation on group weekends at below members' prices without having to take out individual membership of the YHA.
We have weekly meetings on Tuesday evenings. Join us on any Tuesday evening for a variety of activities, including barbecues, games, guest speakers and quizzes. You can also find out about forthcoming events and pick up a copy of our monthly newsletter.
