We are qualified Mountain Leaders and Climbing Instructors with a passion for showing people the very best of what the mountains around Britain have to offer.


We offer hassle-free, all inclusive guided hiking trips from London to the mountains all around the UK.

All of our trips include travel and accommodation and are led by experienced and qualified mountaineers who see your safety and enjoyment as their number one priorities.

All you need to do is to turn up at the pre-arranged London meeting point. You can leave the rest to us!


We run hiking trips from London to the mountains almost every weekend of the year. We also offer weekday day-trips (including beginner rock-climbing excursions) and weeklong expedition style adventures.

Most of our trips are pre-arranged group trips and so are great for meeting like-minded people. We cap the number of clients on most trips to eight to keep your mountain experience as peaceful as possible.

We can also offer bespoke/tailored private hiking trips for you and your friends. If you’re in need of some one-to-one training for a bigger mountain goal or would simply like to spend some time in the mountains with close friends just drop us an email and we can arrange the rest.


All of our trips are specifically designed to get off the tourist trails and to show people the wildest, most untamed side of the mountains.

The price of all of our trips includes:

  • Return travel from London

  • Accommodation

  • All food while on the mountain (generally this means breakfast & lunches for non-wild camping trips, and breakfast, lunches and all camp food when wild camping).

  • Guided hiking by highly experienced and qualified Mountain Leaders


You may be an aspiring mountaineer with a long-term goal to climb Kilimanjaro; you may be a solo adventurer looking to do something a little different and to meet new, like-minded people; or you may simply wish to experience the mountains with the reassurance that a knowledgeable and experienced guide provides.

We cater for everyone, from people who have never set foot on a mountain before to Everest summiteers!  

More than anything we want to make the mountains accessible to all and so all of our trips are priced affordably, and we have graded them to suit all levels of fitness

If you have any questions or are unsure about anything before booking on to a trip, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
