Keswick Guided Walks

Keswick Guided Walks is our subsidiary website specifically for mountain activities.  It provides easier access to these most popular of pursuits – especially in the Lake District.  There is more detailed information and a wider range of mountain options along with a blog which Steve maintains with informative and interesting information and reports.

Unlike Steve’s other outdoor offerings, which have a balance of qualification courses, trips and private tuition, his mountain provision consists almost entirely of personalised days on request.  The only exception to this being the spectacular via ferrata trip to the Italian Dolomites (above).
