Peak District guided walks
We launched our first guided walk in June 2021 organised by Becky Angell (Mountain Leader) from ‘Peak District Walks’ and Emma Holland (Mountain Leader) and experienced teacher in navigation courses from ‘Emma Holland Mountaineering’.
Our walks are different to most ‘Guided Walks’ as we cover an Introduction to Map Reading, which means you can enjoy a beautiful walk in the Peak District and learn a few beginner skills too!
Book our walks here
We have a mix of different walks you can book from Guided Walks with an introduction to map reading, Group Guided Walks and even some tough challenges. Find out more about our different Guided Walks below.
If you have any questions please get in touch with Becky at email@example.com.
