Peak District Challenge Walks

Our Challenge Walks in the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales are great for those who like to stretch themselves, and who are fit enough to walk from 15 to 25 miles in a day, over hills or moorlands and rough terrain.  You can raise money for a charity of your choice, or just do the walk for fun! 


Top Tip 

  • It is essential that you have proper hiking boots, outdoor clothing, and a good level of fitness.

Private Challenge Walks

We also offer Challenge and Trek Training walks in the Peak District on a wider range of dates throughout the year for small or corporate groups, couples or individuals booking on a private guided basis.

  • This allows greater flexibility, as we can tailor the day to your individual requirements.  
  • Prices are from £180 per day for Challenge Walks, the cost of which can be shared between members of your group, so for five or more people it can work out cheaper than joining one of our open group walks.

Please contact us to enquire and to book.


Our full Peak Walking Adventures programme of dates for open group walks, trek training, challenge walks, navigation training days and workshop clinics are also listed on our guided walking calendar.
