Guided Walks

Where do you like to walk? Do you need a purpose when walking?

Would you like to relax whilst someone else takes the walk?

Courses & Workshops

Would you like the skills and confidence to be more independent in the great outdoors?

Navigation and hill walking skills made easy for you. Not just map ‘reading’, but map interpretation skills so that you have the tools to open up new adventures, with friends, with family, or to enjoy the solitude of your own company.

Step Outside – Walking is a bit like life …

The journey requires you to put one foot in front of the other ..again and again and again. And if you allow yourself opportunity to be present throughout the entirety of the walk, you will witness beauty every step of the way
