Join our guided trek training walks with your friendly, professional walk leader, Rachel or Richard from Peak Walking Adventures. Our trek training walks in the Peak District are specially designed for those preparing for non-technical, overseas guided treks, in summer conditions, up mountains such as Kilimanjaro, Jebel Toubkal, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and Everest Base Camp.
They are also useful for those training for guided mountain challenges in the UK such as the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge. Most tour operators organising mountain walking holidays or charity challenge treks, recommend hill walking as being one of the most effective methods of preparing your body to sustain several consecutive days of uphill climbs.
Of course you don't have to be training for anything to enjoy one of these walks. If you simply enjoy a challenging hill walk, then they could be perfect for you! Here's what we have on offer:
