Walking is healthy
meet other cultures
combination with your vacations


The IML Walking Association is a non-political, non-profit organisation whose purpose is:

  • to promote walking as a worthwhile and healthy recreation; and
  • to foster international understanding and goodwill by encouraging participation at walking events in other countries through a program of incentive awards. This is accomplished by promoting international multi-day non-competitive walking events in each of the member countries.

For administrative purposes the IML Walking Association is broken down into two Regions: the European Region and the Pan Pacific Region."Nos Iungat Ambulare" is the official motto of the IML Walking Association which, when translated into English, means "May walking bring us together". Come join us at an IML Walking Association event, and experience the atmosphere of goodwill and friendship amongst the international and local participants. Use the IML Walking Association worldwide program of events to:

  • see different countries;
  • experience different cultures;
  • make new friends; and
  • renew friendship with walkers you have previously met

We look forward to seeing you there!






“Due to incompatible workways, Marbella 4Days Walking, managed by Arabella M. Wessels, has decided on Wednesday, the 17th of August 2022, to withdraw from all future IML/IVV events.”

Dear Walkers,
On Wednesday 17 August the organization from the Marbella 4days Walking has token the decision to leave the IML family.
We, the IML, were surprised at this and we are very disappointed. Disappointed because we were very proud that they became an IML member in 2021.
The consequent is that Marbella 4days walking event is no longer an IML event and the walkers attending the event in Marbella will unfortunately not have an IML stamp and no IML bar, no medal , no figures ....
No IML event, no IML stamp.
We wish the Marbella 4days event all the best for the future.

We are glad to inform our walkers that the IML family has a new member.: Croatia https://www.croatiawalk.com/en/homepage/
