Guided Walking Breaks

Hiking Highs are delighted to offer you a variety of Guided walking holidays and mini breaks. Some breaks include classic routes, others designed by our lead guide, Nicky Sproson, who spends time exploring the more secret paths and learning ever more knowledge about the flora, fauna and local heritage in each corner of The Lake district. All our guides are fascinated by the valleys and mountains of The Lake District and always keen to share their knowledge and own personal journeys into the fells, to bring your days alive… whatever the weather! You will always be walking with a qualified Mountain Leaders. Our breaks listed below are in ascending order of difficulty, start at the top for those new to walking on Lake District Terrain, and head down the list below for more challenging breaks on offer.
