walking in the nature / nature walking

< Previous | Next >


Dear friends,
I'd like ask you these two phrases

Can we say " I like walking in the nature"
or do we have to say " I like nature walking"
because nature is an abstract word.
I got confused.

Which sounds better?

Best regards

    "I like country walks" is a good way to say it.

    In my experience, a nature walk is a well established collocation referring to taking children for a walk in a park or the countryside and teaching them about animals and plants. So I would tend to avoid the collocation if I meant something less educational.

    By "walking in nature" do you mean mainly walking outside towns and cities? Or do you include feral pigeons and urban foxes as "nature"? The risks of feeding an urban fox
