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. Cath still owns and runs Peak Walking Adventures, and from May 2019 onward will benefit from the help of associate Rachel Bolton, who has her own guided walking business. Rachel's walks are bookable through Peak Walking Adventures.
From June 2019 onward, Cath will provide guided walks on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales and south east of the Lake District, whilst Rachel will cover the Peak District and Derbyshire.
Cath and Rachel's guided walks are ideal for small groups of adults, couples and individuals. They both like to help their clients to learn about the countryside and the upland environment, by sharing local knowledge. Both hold up to date outdoor first aid qualifications and have civil liability insurance for guiding walks.
Rachel is a qualified Mountain Leader, a member of the Mountain Training Association and the British Mountaineering Council. She holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and worked with children as a teacher and headteacher for nearly 30 years. She is also a qualified Alexander Technique teacher.
Rachel is passionate about being in the outdoors walking, scrambling, winter mountaineering and climbing.
Cath is a qualified Mountain Leader, a member of the Mountain Training Association, and the British Mountaineering Council. She has over 10 years experience of professionally guiding mountain and moorlands walks.
She loves spending time in the beautiful hills and moorlands of Britain, and introducing people to her favourite walks.
Cath and Rachel are passionate about protecting the environment and helping to sustain local communities within the Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and Lake District. There are some amazing, but fragile landscapes, wildlife, and plant life that you can enjoy on their guided walks. They want 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.
