All of our gear and trips can be purchased via the Adventure Peaks website.

Outdoor and Expedition Kit Hire for the Lake District and Worldwide

We also offer an extensive equipment hire service for any kit requirements from winter walking in the Lake District to sumitting Mount Everest. We stock hire crampons and hire ice axes for all uses, from winter walking in the Lake District and Scotland, to ice climbing in Scotland and the European Alps.

The hiring of equipment is a service that we offer to both clients and non-clients. For specialised kit requirements (e.g. down suits) we recommend that you contact us well in advance which enables us to better fulfill your requests.

All Hire Equipment can be posted out to you in the lead up to your trip or course for £15 (UK) or £45 (Europe). Contact us for more information. When the equipment is not in use it is available to buy second hand. This allows us to keep our hire stock in excellent condition. Full details of our hire gear can be seen at the Adventure Peaks website
