Peak District Guided Walks

Guided Walking in the Peak District National Park


Guided Group Walks in the Peak District

Organised walks for small groups taking you to some of the best walking locations in the Peak District.

We do all the hard work of planning the walks, navigating and looking after the group. We also bring a wealth of knowledge from over 25 years of leading walks, including the best routes (and cafes!) as well as the local flora, fauna and information about the areas you'll be walking in. myGuidedWalks is based in the beautiful Peak District National Park and many of the walks take place in this area although we also offer activities in other areas such as Snowdonia, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

I usually lead all walks myself and hold the Mountain Leader qualification, an outdoor first aid qualification, and have full professional insurance.

Take a look at our upcoming walks below or on the Event Calendar.

crossing the plateau of Kinder Scout with it's complex network of Groughs (deep channels in the peat) and Hags (raised areas of peat).  This is an especially interesting area to investigate, complex to navigate but taking you through an area transformed by conservation work since 2010

A walk on the wild side. Probably one of the most interesting routes on Kinder Scout. Starting from Edale we visit many of Kinder's key features including the Wool Packs, Pym Chair, Kinder Low and the Downfall before heading into notoriously complex "groughs and hags" that cover the plateau. Having reached the main path once again we follow the southern edge back to Edale.
