Peak District Open Group Guided Walks

Open group walks in the Peak District and Derbyshire are perfect for individuals, couples, or friends who would like to join a small group of others on a fully guided hill, or moorland walk.  Almost all walks are led personally by qualified and experienced guides Rachel Bolton or Richard Tower. 


A few tips: 

  • Why not book for two consecutive days and enjoy a walking weekend? 
  • It is essential that you have proper hiking boots, outdoor clothing, and a reasonable level of fitness. 
  • If you prefer a gentle stroll or a bespoke adventure, then private guiding might be more suitable for you. 
  • Young people under the age of 18 should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. 
  • Unfortunately, dogs are not usually allowed on our open group walks.
