Guided Walks

Lake District

We can guide you on the best walks and scrambles in the Lake District.

Walking is seemingly limitless when it comes to the Lake District National Park. You can experience the dizzy heights of Scafell Pike - Englands largest mountain, or tick off one of the Lake Districts classic scrambles such as the famous Striding Edge on Hellvelyn. Maybe you want to explore the Coniston valley with its wealth of old mining history or reach the top of the famous Old Man of Coniston.  

Wherever you wish to go, let us take the stress out of your day. Your experienced guide will navigate you every step of the way. With our local knowledge, we can share with you an insight into the history, geology and nature of the area. If you'd like to brush up on your navigation skills just let us know and your guide can share their skills along the way.

Classic Wainwright Walks

Walk in Wainwright's footsteps.

Alfred Wainwright (1907 - 1991) shared what he called a love affair with the Lake District. He was a fell walker and writer. His 214 routes to the summit of Lakeland fells were published in the seven-volume guide Pictorial guide to the Lakeland Fells. He later wrote many other books including long distant walks amongst which is the first route of the Coast to Coast which is still hugely popular today. Later on in his life, he became a TV personality featuring in a collection of walking series and a documentary of his life.

 

Wainwrights walks and routes have inspired so many to get out walking in the hills and started many people heading out and 'bagging Wainwrights' - a practice where you climb as many of Wainwrights summits as possible.

If you'd like to walk a Wainwright with a local friendly guide just let us know what mountain/mountains you have in mind and we'll do the rest!

Suitable for: All who like to walk.

Fitness Level: Moderate to High

Duration: Full day or multiple days.
