We do the hard work of planning the hikes, navigating and looking after the group. We also share a wealth of knowledge from over 25 years of leading guided walks, including the best routes (and cafes!) as well as the local flora, fauna and history of the areas you'll be hiking in.
myGuidedWalks only operate small groups to ensure you have the best experience possible. Based in the Peak District National Park where most of the guided walks take place, we also offer hiking and navigation activities in Snowdonia, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. I'm a qualified Mountain Leader, outdoor first aider, and have full professional insurance.
We specialise in providing the best personalised private guiding available, taking you on the best hikes and creating bespoke guided walking experiences. Ideal for individuals, couples, families, corporate groups or clubs for up to 12 people.
Going on a trek, challenge walk or hiking holiday? Private Guiding is the perfect way to prepare.
Organised guided group walks taking you to some of the best hiking locations in the Peak District National Park. We only take small groups so we can give you the best possible service and personal attention. We offer a range of walks to suit all abilities.

My name is Paul Smith and I run myGuidedWalks and lead the activities.
My aim is to share my enthusiasm and love for walking in the outdoors and my 25 years experience in leading groups in the hills and mountains. I hold Mountain Leader & outdoor first aid qualifications. Navigation is one of my passions and I get a real sense of achievement through passing these skills on to other people.
I hope you'll be inspired to book with me for a memorable experience.
