Lake District guided walks
Guided walks & 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.
Guided walks to suit all abilities
We can tailor a walk or scramble for you - just let us know what length and level of walk you would like and we'll come up an itinerary for you. A full day walk to summit one of the larger mountains does require a good level of fitness. If you want something a little less strenuous or are young with little legs, there are loads of smaller peaks with stunning views and many shorter lower level walks to choose from!
