Highlights

For the advanced course, we head to the Lake District for 2 full days of training which provides much more time to practice the skills in more complex terrain providing the ideal environment to learn from your course leader.
This course is an ideal continuation for those who have already completed an intermediate course or already have good skills. You'll spend 2 days in the outdoors learning more advanced techniques and refining those you already have. Much of the time will be spent on complex terrain navigating to smaller features and with longer and more complex legs and much more focus on contours. I'll tailor the exercises for each person based on their level of skill and those areas you'd like to work on perfecting.
The course cost quoted does not include accommodation.
COVID-19 Guidance All our events are approved as "Good to Go" Covid-secure by Visit England. We plan to start operating again from 29th March in line with the schedule published by the government. Initially groups of up to 6 or two households will be able to exercise in the outdoors. We expect the most popular areas will be very busy during the first two weeks (Easter Holidays) so our activities will initially be selected to cover the quieter locations that provide those great wide open experiences and we will only be taking new bookings for private individuals/groups for these first two weeks. From 12th April we will return to running our full range of activities including open group bookings that individuals can book on in addition to private/bespoke bookings. From 17th May: Larger groups will be able to meet in the outdoors.
Our "Book with Confidence" reschedule/refund guarantee continues to be in place for bookings made up to 14th March (see below). After this date we will still maintain the additional flexibility to reschedule your booking at any time if needed as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.
If you'd like to discuss options before booking please contact us. Thanks, Paul Smith, myGuidedWalks.
