If you are in the Lake District and are looking for a challenge; our Lake District Guided Walks are a great place to start. You might want to improve your skills in the mountains, build your confidence or just have a fun day out with your friends and family. Our Guided Walks are a great way to see the beautiful mountains that Cumbria has to offer. Whether it's scaling the mighty heights of Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, scrambling across the brilliant Striding Edge on Helvellyn or taking your first steps up The Fairfield Horseshoe, we have something for everybody, from all walks of life.
Our walks offer you a great opportunity to chat to us about future plans and ambitions. You can talk to us about the Courses and Expeditions we offer. On your return, visit our in-house Climbing and Bouldering Wall, or come and relax in our Café Altitude, serving home-made food, great coffee and offering panoramic views over Ambleside and the surrounding area.
Our Lake District Guided Walks are aimed at outdoor enthusiasts or beginners who would like to explore the Lake District fells under our expert guidance without the need to have good navigation skills. Our Guided Walks are graded from easy to hard. You can join as an individual, a couple, a family or a group.

Location: The Fairfield Horseshoe
Fairfield is one of the most impressive Lake District fell walks, and for lovers of high level circuits, this is a sure fire ‘classic’. The Fairfield Horseshoe is a stunning sight and towers high above Ambleside, 872m, leaving the shoppers and coffee goers looking up in awe. From Fairfield’s summit you can see spectacular views in every direction. The Fairfield Horseshoe is host to eight summits including Low Pike, High Pike, Dove Crag, Hart Crag, Great Rigg, Heron Pike and Nab Scar.
As our guides and leaders will be responsible for your well being, we require that each walker complete our medical and experience form and return it to Adventure Peaks or your guide at the start of the walk. You may download a copy here.
