Going on a trek or walking holiday? Private Guiding is a perfect way to prepare with tailored trek training walks for you or your group.
We offer a selection of 1 day and 2 day walkers navigation training courses at a choice of Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced level.
The Beginner course will provide you with a basic introduction and the skills to start navigating safely using a map and compass. The Intermediate and Advanced courses will enable you to learn more in-depth navigation techniques providing you with the skills to tackle more complex terrain and poorer visibility. If you'd prefer more personalised or 1-to-1 training then we can put together your very own course booked as Private Guiding.
Organised walks taking you to some of the best walking locations in the Peak District National Park.
We do all the hard work of planning the walks, navigating and looking after the group. We also bring a wealth of knowledge from over 25 years of leading walks, including the best routes (and cafes!) as well as the local flora, fauna and information about the areas you'll be walking in.
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.
