Guided Mountain Walks and Expeditions

We regularly run guided mountain walking trips in Yorkshire, the Lake DistrictSnowdonia and the Scottish Highlands as well as leading international expeditions abroad. We do not schedule these in advance on specific dates, as we prefer to make each one bespoke for you and adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.

Sometimes these may be challenging day walks, requiring sound navigational skills and knowledge of the terrain, when it pays dividends to have an experienced guide. On other occasions, these could be multi-day trips in some of the more remote mountain regions of the UK – perhaps multi-day trips based in a hostel or similar accommodation, or perhaps wild camping. (Ratio 1:12 max depending on exact routes)

Our recent international expeditions have included Mera Peak & Island Peak in Nepal, and Kilimanjaro by both the Rongai and Machame Routes.

Course Details

Who is the course for?

Guided mountain walks are for anyone and everyone. You may be a complete novice to the outdoors; or you may have experience but want to take on a walk that will push your own boundaries; or you may be organising something for a group of friends and know that a guide will take the pressure off you.

Where is it held?

Our most popular guided walks are in the Lake DistrictSnowdonia, the Yorkshire Dales and in Scotland, for example GlencoeBen Nevis and the Cairngorms.

How long is the course?

Each guided walk is a minimum of one day in duration, but is often booked as a two-day weekend. We can also guide mountain walks for longer periods using the accommodation of your choice (indoors or outdoors) – for example the 10 highest mountains in the UK (all in Scotland) over 5 days.

What does the course cover?

  • Help and advice with planning the trip
  • Recommendations for routes and accommodation options
  • Preparatory information, such as recommended kit lists
  • Mountain guiding throughout the trip

What equipment is included?

You will need to provide: warm clothing including a waterproof jacket; walking boots; and a rucksack of about 30 litres.

We will discuss an appropriate kit list when you book.

What does it cost?

Prices for one day start at £170 for one person; £190 for two people (i.e. £95 per person); etc. A group of 12 would therefore cost £390 for the day (i.e. £33 per person). From the 4th day, a discounted rate will apply.
