Private Hiking Guide in the Lake District

myGuidedWalks specialises in providing personalised guiding services in the Lake District and other areas across the UK. The Lake District is a walkers paradise with a wonderful range of hills, mountains, lakes and valleys offering beautiful walking in the Lake District National Park.

Private Guiding enables you to book a walk that will match your abilities or the level of challenge you want to undertake. Through our experience and knowledge of the Lake District we will put together a range of route options whether that be a relaxing day around Grasmere, a hike up England's highest mountain Scafell Pike, or a challenging multi-day mountain route including a wild camp. We will lead you safely on the routes you've always aspired to and create itineraries focused on what you want to achieve and where and when you'd like to go.

You can also book a private guiding session and use it as your very own Navigation Training Course with content tailored to your needs.

Private guiding is ideal for individuals, couples, families, clubs or any group of up to 5 people. Why not create your own tailored walking holiday with your own private guide.

Booking a private walk guide will enable you to:

  • Maximize your available time out in the hills.

  • Discover the best routes, tailored for your abilities and desires.

  • Tackle the routes you've always wanted to do safe in the knowledge you're being led by a qualified guide.

  • Learn new mountain or navigation skills from your guide. Treat it as a private lesson if you wish.

  • Undertake multi-day expeditions or even wild camp out in the hills.

All booking requests for private guiding are provisional and no payment will be requested from you until we have discussed your requirements and agreed an itinerary and dates that you are happy with.


  • Full day from £189, Half day from £129

  • Prices increase by £20 for each additional person for full days and £15 for half days. The table here indicates the price per person.

For guiding in the Lake District where the trip will require the leader to stay overnight (this will apply in most cases) an additional charge will be added to cover associated costs. This will be clearly identified and included in the price quoted for your itinerary. Such costs will be kept to a minimum and avoided where possible.

Recommended Equipment & Clothing

  • Appropriate walking clothing to keep you warm on the day (no jeans as they can be cold if wet).

  • Waterproof jacket.

  • Waterproof trousers.

  • Spare warm layers (several thinner layers are more versatile than 1 thick).

  • Walking boots (some areas are rough and uneven so boots that go above the ankle, providing good ankle support, are recommended rather than low cut walking/trail shoes. Boots will also keep your feet drier than walking shoes in boggy/muddy areas). No Trainers.

  • Warm hat and gloves or sun hat if sunny.

  • Food, drink and snacks for the day. We will have a couple of food stops whilst out on the hill.

  • Personal first aid kit (for minor cuts, blisters, sun cream, pain relief and any personal medication).

  • Rucksack with waterproof liner/bag.

  • Money for parking and/or cafe

  • Hand sanitiser and face covering recommended A face mask/covering does not need to be worn, however whilst virus levels remain high it would be recommended in emergency situations to help protect people whilst providing first aid or assistance, or when entering busy cafes and toilet areas.

  • Optional additions: camera, gaiters and/or walking poles if you have them.
