Trek Training Walks


Our Trek Training Walks in the Peak District and Lake District are especially designed for those preparing for non-technical, overseas guided treks, in summer conditions, up mountains such as Kilimanjaro, Jebel Toubkal, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and Everest Base Camp. They are also useful for those training for guided mountain challenges in the UK such as the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

Private Trek Training Walks

We also offer Trek Training walks in the Peak District and Lake 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 £170 per day, 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.
