Don’t be a winter hermit… Join our Winter Wilderness Wanders…

There’s so much to cheer about when it comes to walking in winter – yes there really is!

Whether it’s delighting in the scenery during a guided walk on a crisp, frosty morning, having the perfect reason to dive into a pub at the end of a bracing day outside or simply warming your toes in front of an open fire after a good yomp.

So hold those thoughts as we introduce you to our winter guided walking programme.

Britain’s scenery is every bit as terrific during the winter as in the summer  and so we plan our walks to make the most of the season – whether it’s the quiet stillness of a forest or watching the waves perform along the coast.

Even if the weather is more soggy than crisp, we avoid a head-down trudging route march and will tailor the walk to incorporate plenty of sights and variety to ensure the rain doesn’t blot out any enjoyment.

During and after a winter’s walk, life’s little luxuries are even more welcome, from a cup of tea and a slice of cake in a tearoom, a glass of wine in front of a log fire through to devouring home-cooked stew at the end of the day.

With this in mind our winter locations and accommodation are geared towards providing guests with an extra slice of comfort after a great day out.

From the Lake District to the Peak District and Snowdonia to the spectacular North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast, our events are fully guided by qualified mountain leaders and our residential events are run by friendly hosts.
