Bespoke Guided Walking

This service is for anyone interested in hill walking and looking for advice, information, direction and coaching on the hill.

We will take care of the planning and take the pressure off - we'll do the route finding, the map reading and provide anecdotes and information about the area and the landscape.

Get off the beaten track if you prefer quieter locations, local knowledge means we know the good spots!

This is also open to seasoned walkers looking for a regular partner, walkers looking to complete a specific objective or those looking to complete the Wainwrights. We know the fells well and spend most days on the hill; use that knowledge and expertise to experience the Lakes like never before!

This service is offered year round, summer and winter.

We are keen to hear your aspirations and work with you to achieve your goals.

Here are some recommendations based on peoples' popular choices:

  1. Scafell Pike
  2. Helvellyn
  3. Great Gable
  4. Skiddaw
  5. Langdale Pikes
  6. Fairfield Horseshoe
  7. Crinkle Crags & Bowfell
  8. Haystacks
  9. Grasmoor

And more!

A guided walking day is 5+ hours long. We meet for 9:00am and should arrive back at the cars for 3:00pm - this is a six hour day meaning we can reach the high fells and provide a full itinerary for the day.

Half day walks are available on request.

Get in touch to discuss your booking, for ideas and even for advice and recommendations!

The price of this day is inclusive of:

  1. A qualified Mountain Leader (or higher award) affiliated with Mountain Training Association 
  2. Local & intimate knowledge of the venues
  3. Technical equipment 
  4. Professional coaching & instruction
  5. A private trip - just you and your group
