Guided Mountain, Hill and Fell walking, and mountain skills training courses in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales
Most of our guided mountain days are booked exclusively, allowing us to provide a genuinely bespoke day for you and your group.
Exclusive guiding costs from £150.00 per guide per day.
We do however sometimes offer open guided days, from £30.00 pp where you can join others on a prearranged walk following some of our more popular routes. You can find our open walks advertised on our Facebook page ("like" the page and keep checking back for updates!)
The Old Man of Coniston (803m/2634ft)
One of Lakeland's best known fells, The Coniston Old Man is usually ascended from Coniston village. This round trip is (relatively!) short at about 4 miles, but full of interest - passing the well known 800yr old copper mines, and the stunning Low Water to reach a summit looking out over the Irish Sea. It's claimed that, on the right day, Ireland, Scotland and Wales can all be seen from the summit!
The Yorkshire Three Peaks
The three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside, and Pen y Ghent can be climbed separately, which would give three nice gentle days of wonderful walking in the Yorkshire Dales, convenient for Ingleton, Clapham, Settle and the surrounding areas.
Alternatively... for those who might want more of a challenge, they can be completed in one (long!) round. The classic Yorkshire Three Peaks round is a demanding circuit well deserving of its popularity. At aprox. 23 miles this is a long day (think 10 - 12 hrs) showcasing the best walking routes the Dales has to offer. Expect to finish this route exhausted but exhilarated!
At 978m (3209ft) the summit of Scafell Pike is the highest point in England. This challenging peak can be approached via a few different routes - from Langdale (aprox 14 miles round trip), accessible from the South Lakes, Ambleside, Coniston, Grasmere. If you're staying in the North Lakes (Keswick, Cockermouth, Penrith) then the Borrowdale route is more convenient (aprox. 10 miles round trip.) Alternativley the shortest route is from Wasdale (about 6 miles) which is convenient for the West Coast. Either way, this summit guarantees a challenging, rewarding mountain experience every time.
