Peak Walking Adventures was founded in 2009 by Cath Lee who simply wanted to share her love of the beautiful hills and moorlands of England with others. For the first ten years, Cath specialised in providing guided walks in the Peak District, and then in 2019 following a move, she changed focus to the provision of guided mountain and moorland walks on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales, and south east of the Lake District.
Cath specialises in leading small groups, couples and individuals, and likes to help her clients to learn about the countryside and the upland environment, by sharing a wealth of local knowledge. She has developed a range of guided walking options, and aims to be able to offer 'a walk for everyone'.
Almost all of the walks are led by Cath personally, with occasional help from other qualified and experienced walk leaders.
Cath is a qualified Mountain Leader, a member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA), and the British Mountaineering Council (BMC). You can view her MTA profile by clicking below.
Cath is passionate about protecting the environment and helping to sustain local communities within the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. There are some amazing, but fragile landscapes, wildlife, and plant life that you can enjoy on her guided walks. She wants people to be able to enjoy these for generations to come in the same way that we enjoy them today. More information can be found on the environmental and sustainability page.
Through her business, Cath supports a number of charities by corporate sponsorship or similar donations.
