Private Guiding

Private Guiding in the Peak District, Snowdonia, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and other areas in the UK

Private Walking Guide

myGuidedWalks specialises in providing personalised guiding services in the Peak District, Snowdonia, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and other areas across the UK. We will lead you safely on the routes you've always aspired to and create itineraries focused on what you want to achieve and where and when you'd like to go. You can also book a private guiding session and use it as your very own training course with content tailored to your needs.

Private guiding is ideal for individuals, couples, families, corporate groups, clubs or any group of up to 10 people.

Booking a private walk guide will enable you to:

  • Get the most out of your time in the hills.
  • Discover the best routes, tailored for your abilities and interests.
  • Tackle routes you've always wanted to do, safe in the knowledge you're being led by a qualified guide.
  • Train for an upcoming trekking holiday or challenge walk
  • Learn new mountain or navigation skills from your guide. Treat it as a private lesson if you wish.
  • Undertake multi-day expeditions or even wild camp out in the hills.

All booking requests for private guiding are provisional and no payment will be requested from you until we have discussed your requirements and agreed an itinerary and dates that you are happy with.


Prices for a private walking guide vary by the number of clients and the duration of your trip. The table here indicates the base pricing structure.

If the trip will require significant travel or for the leader to stay overnight, any additional charges will be clearly identified and included in the price quoted for your itinerary. Such costs will be kept to a minimum and avoided where possible.

For multi-day trips we are usually able to offer a reduced rate or waiver any additional charges.

Recommended Equipment & Clothing

(typical list for day out in the hills)

  • Appropriate walking clothing to keep you warm on the day (no jeans)
  • Waterproof jacket
  • Waterproof trousers (if could be wet)
  • Spare warm layers (several thinner layers are more versatile than 1 thick)
  • Walking boots or walking/trail shoes (some areas are rough and uneven so boots providing good ankle support would be recommended rather than lower cut walking/trekking shoes. Boots will also keep your feet drier than walking shoes in boggy area.) No trainers.
  • Warm hat and gloves or sun hat if sunny
  • Food, drink and snacks for the day. We will have a couple of food stops whilst out on the hill.
  • Personal first aid kit (for minor cuts, blisters, sun cream, pain relief etc and any personal medication)
  • Rucksack with waterproof liner/bag
  • Money for car park fees or possible visit to a cafe
  • Optional additions: gaiters and walking poles if you use them
