Peak District Guided Walks

Guided Walking in the Peak District National Park

Organised group walks to the best locations in the Peak District.

We only take small groups on our hikes 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 benefit from our knowledge from over 25 years of leading walks, including the best routes and the local flora, fauna and history.

Mountain Hares Discovery - Group Walk
Bleaklow, Peak District £38

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 trips. It goes without saying that it's worth taking along a camera with a long lens/zoom or binoculars if you have them. The walk also includes a visit to the B29 Superfortress "Over-Exposed" Crash Site on Bleaklow.

Shutlingsloe & Three Shire Heads - Group Walk
Macclesfield, Peak District £38

This is a great guided walk on the western edge of the Peak District.

This spot marks the meeting point of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire and is a popular local spot for a wild swim.
