Peak District Guided Walks 

Award Winning Guided Walking in the Peak District National Park

We only take small groups on our hikes (max 6 or 8) so we can give you the best possible service and personal attention and offer a range of walks to suit all abilities. Let us do all the hard work of planning the walks, navigating and looking after the group and also benefit from our knowledge of the best routes and the local flora, fauna and history.
If you don't see a suitable date please let us know as we may be able to run a private guided walk for you or add an additional date. Group walks are confirmed to run once 2 people have booked. A booking fee of 4% (capped at £5) +VAT will be added at checkout. If you prefer you can avoid the booking fee and pay me directly, just contact me and I'll arrange your booking.

Mountain Hares Discovery - Glossop, Peak District £49

Part of the exclusive National Park Experience Collection. Featured in the Guardian and Sunday Times
Our most popular walk takes you to one of the highest points in the Peak District and the only places in England where you can still find Mountain Hares.
Most people will never see them when walking in the hills but we have a 100% record of spotting them on these hikes. It goes without saying that it's worth taking along a camera with a long lens/zoom or binoculars if you have them, but don't worry if you don't as I'll take some pictures for you. The walk also includes a visit to the popular B29 Superfortress "Over-Exposed" Crash Site on Bleaklow.

Crash Sites Walking Tour - Glossop, Peak District £49

Part of the exclusive National Park Experience Collection.
A great walk up to the wilds of Bleaklow from Old Glossop, visiting the USAF B29 Superfortress crash site and also a little visited Canadian Lancaster Bomber crash site during the walk.
This hike takes you up a lovely but little visited ridge onto the second highest mountain in the Peak District, Bleaklow.  There will be great opportunities here to teach you a little about this special and important ecosystem. From here we walk over to the site of the 1948 B29 Superfortress plane crash. To finish the walk we take a route passing the crash site of a Lancaster Bomber on our way back down.

Kinder Scout Adventure - Edale, Peak District £49

A walk on the wild side.

This is one of the most interesting walking routes on Kinder Scout. Starting from Edale we'll walk to many of Kinder's most photographed features including the Wool Packs, Pym Chair, Kinder Low and the famous Kinder Downfall before walking into the notoriously complex "groughs and hags" that cover the plateau.
Here you will also have the best opportunity to see some of the unique nature that calls this place home. Having reached the main path once again we walk along the southern edge of Kinder Scout and back down again to Edale.

Kinder Scout Eastern Summit - Edale, Peak District £49

Visit one of the quieter summit trig points on this great Kinder Scout hike. 
Starting from the village of Edale we walk up one of the quieter routes onto the eastern end of Kinder Scout. We'll visit little-known rock formations such as the Druids Stone on our way with fantastic views over to the Great Ridge, Eastern Edges, Alport Castle and Bleaklow.
Next we walk to Kinder Scout's remote eastern summit trig point before taking one of the famous unmarked "Kinder Crossings" across the notoriously difficult to navigate plateau. We'll choose from one of the many great routes down to Edale from here.

Kinder Scout & Downfall - Hayfield, Peak District £49

This walking route is one of the shorter and most spectacular Kinder Scout walks, up to the summit of the highest mountain in the Peak District.
Setting off from Bowden Bridge we walk up, gradually at first, and then becoming quite steep up onto Kinder Scout. Once on the plateau of Kinder Scout we continue walking to the spectacular Kinder Downfall, passing the hidden Charged Rock, and then walk onwards to the highest trig point before descending.

Shutlingsloe & Three Shire Heads - Macclesfield / Buxton, Peak District £49

A great guided walk on the western edge of the Peak District.
We start from the valley of Wildboarclough and walk up over open moors, a great area for spotting wild moorland birds in spring and summer when they come here to breed.
Next we walk along the River Dane to the beautiful Three Shire Heads with its packhorse bridge, waterfalls and pools.  This marks the meeting point of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, hence the name. 

After lunch we walk over to Shutlingsloe, the "Matterhorn of Cheshire" and back down to the valley of Wildboarclough.

Lud's Church & The Roaches - Leek, Peak District £49

We start off along a quiet country lane and soon reach lovely oak woods and a visit to Lud’s Church, the setting of The Green Chapel from “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”.

On a clear day the ridge provides great views of the surrounding region and a good chance for spotting some of the local wildlife as we pass by the various rocky tors.

A stunning walk with amazing views, from the popular outdoors village of Hathersage.
