Do I need to be a experienced walker/hiker already?
Not at all. Walks can be chosen to suit the capability of the group. For the scrambles, you would need to be an experienced hiker, not be afraid of heights and be comfortable with exposure.
Do you cater for vegans, vegetarians, food intolerances and allergies?
Yes, not a problem, as long as we know in advance.
How far will we walk?
Walks will differ depending on ability. We can discuss this on booking.
I'm a bit unfit. Will I be left at the back of the group?
No! We will walk at the pace of the slowest member of the group. It's not a race, we're there to enjoy the day as a group.
What does a day out cost?
Pricing and booking information can be found on the 'Availability' page.
What regions do you do operate in?
We mostly work in The Cheviot Hills, The Lake District, North Yorkshire & the North Pennines. I have also worked in the Scottish & Welsh mountains, but this would involve overnight stays. Please contact us to discuss.
What if the weather is bad?
Days will only be cancelled and money refunded or experiences rescheduled if the MET office weather forecast says it would be unsafe to be out in the hills/mountains/ghylls etc.
What ages can take part?
Any ages can take part as long as they are willing! For ghyll scrambling, we ask that they are at least 8 years old (and able to swim!).
Can I bring my dog(s)?
Yes, if you like. They would have to be suitable to be around a group of course. Dogs are not suitable on mountain scrambles or ghyll scrambles though.
What if one of the group gets injured?
We hold a current Outdoor First Aid qualification and carry a comprehensive first aid kit. We endeavour to deal with anything we can ourselves. For anything serious and beyond our capability we would call upon Mountain Rescue.
Will I be safe?
Yes. Nothing will be beyond the ability of the group.
How many people will be in the group?
4-8/10 depending on the experience normally. I sometimes organise family days for 10/12 so keep an eye on social media.
Will I be expected to carry anything?
If you have opted for the hot menu, each person will be given a pack containing a plate/bowl and cutlery. If you have opted for the packed lunch, we will carry it until lunchtime.
Will you take me out in the hills without the catering?
Yes. Pricing is detailed with and without the catering.
Are you insured?
Yes, we have full insurance lead groups in the mountains and hills of the UK. The insurance also covers us for ghyll scrambling, gorge walking and coasteering.
What equipment/clothing will I need?
