Guided Walks

Our Walks

We cater for all abilities.

I’m very aware that we all have to start somewhere. I remember being nervous when I first ventured out on my own (my map reading and compass skills were, let’s say, basic). I joined some guided walks and, not only did I make some great friends as a result but I learned so much from my walking companions and leaders, I was so much more confident on my solo ventures.

My fitness has fluctuated through the years so, again, I’m personally aware of feeling anxious about going on group walks, I was always thinking “will I be able to keep up?” That is why, we offer a range of guided walks – from beginner to experienced, from day walks, weekend or longer programmes.

 

Beginner Walks

These are usually up to 7 miles in distance, on easy terrain (clear paths).  There may be some gentle ascents.  The group will walk at a relaxed pace.

Moderate Walks

These are usually up to 10 miles in distance, on mixed terrain (tracks, moorland).  There is likely to be at least one steep ascent.  We walk as a group and where pace varies within the group, we stop regularly to re-group and allow everyone to catch their breath!

Strenuous Walks

These are usually adventures! There is no upper limit to the distance travelled or ascents climbed.

Groups

We are happy to work with groups and organisations to deliver a bespoke guided walk – you tell us what you want and we’ll put together a programme to suit your group’s abilities and aspirations.

Testimonials

“The course built well on the foundations of the bronze award. The ttor took a period to
observe and assess the level of the group before focusing on the areas of learning that would
help us develop. The delivery of the learning was smooth and catered for different learning
styles, abilities and pace of learning. The excellent practical exercises strongly reinforced all
the prior theoretical learning and I feel I personally gained invaluable experience by working
under an experienced eye and receiving very relevant feedback on performance”
