Trek Training Walks

Great training for Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp or the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge!

Our Trek Training walks in the Peak District, Lake District and other areas 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.

 

Most tour operators organising mountain walking holidays or charity challenge treks, recommend hill walking as being one of the most effective methods of preparing your body to sustain several consecutive days of uphill climbs.

 

Of course you don't have to be training for anything to enjoy one of these walks.  If you simply enjoy a challenging hill walk, then they could be perfect for you!  We have two options for Trek Training walks

 

Top Tips 

  • It is essential that you have proper hiking boots, outdoor clothing, and a good level of fitness.
  • You might also find our Trek Training Advice useful.  It includes our Top Ten Tips for training!

Private Guided Trek Training Walks

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

  • This allows greater flexibility, as we can tailor the day to your individual requirements.  
  • For available private guiding dates, please see our guided walking calendar.
  • Prices 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.
