Experienced guides & coaches

Critical to an excellent learning experience are the guides or coaches. Your course will always be led by someone who holds a mountain leader qualification, has a current first aid qualification and is experienced in leading individuals and groups in the outdoors. We’re all passionate about the outdoors and the Lake District and we share this with you in a relaxed and friendly way and we’ll go that extra mile to ensure you have a great day.

On our Skills courses, we have a maximum of 6 participants to each leader, meaning you get the time and attention to really help you develop. You will also be provided with all specialist equipment needed e.g. camping equipment.
