The aim of this programme is to help you enjoy the spectacular walking scenery the Lake District has to offer. At the same time, you’ll get plenty of hints and tips about undertaking your own walks, as well as building your knowledge about the local environment, history and culture.
Is it for me?
Our walking days are suitable for anyone simply wanting to enjoy the beautiful Lake District Mountains and valleys. To help you judge what walks suit your requirements, we’ve provided a grading system that considers several different factors – the length of the walk, how much ascent has to be undertaken and how rough the terrain is.
It’s important to be realistic about your level of fitness and suitability for different grades of walks. It’s also worth remembering that changing weather, hot or cold, can have a real impact on ability and stamina. Under 18s must always be accompanied by their parent or guardian for any of the activities we provide.
How long does it last?
You can enjoy a single day walk, or we can take you on a series of walks over several days, based on your requirements and our availability. A normal walking day sees us setting of around 9.30am and finishing around 5pm each day.
* Meet up in the morning and check aspirations and experience
* Check the latest mountain forecast and plan for the day ahead
* Head off into the mountains for an enjoyable days walking
Where are the adventures?
Our walking programme takes place within the stunning surroundings of the Lake District, but we’re conveniently located to take groups further afield into the wilds of the Northern Pennines, the Howgills, Yorkshire Dales or into Southern Scotland.
