Guided Hikes In The UK

Are you looking for your next adventure in the UK, but don’t know where to go? Want to climb Helvellyn, but unsure how to tackle Striding Edge? Or do you just want a fun day out being guided around the best places in the Lakes?

Hello, it's Tom here from Trekking Tom Experiences and I am a fully qualified and insured mountain leader. The UK is an amazing place to hike with so many mountains, hills and lakes to explore. But it can be a little overwhelming if you’re not familiar with the area or unsure about your navigational skills.

Hopefully that is where I can help. By using my local knowledge and experience I have handpicked some of the best routes that will challenge and inspire you for your next adventure. Leave the navigating to me and we’ll be safely breezing up mountains, sometimes a bit of scrambling and always admiring fabulous views.

Trekking Tom

I'm not just here to drag you around the hike. I’m also here to help build your confidence with navigating the mountains, providing educational titbits about the area, but mainly for some fun banter and sharing my midget gems!

Anyone can join a hike, although I can provide smaller groups if you want something just for you and your friends or family. I put a huge focus on enjoyment, so will go at your pace, stop when you need a breather or just to take a photo and holding your hand for any technical parts (literally if you need it!).

Testimonials

I love guiding people on their adventures and making sure they have the best experience. It’s so lovely when I get amazing feedback.

So glad I reached out to Tom for my first challenging hike over Striding Edge. I was a bag of nerves but Tom did an amazing job, ensuring I felt safe every step of the way. The trek was well led, inclusive and provided a balanced mix of laughs, professionalism and local knowledge. Thank you Tom for the confidence boost!

Thanks so much for today, | couldn't have asked for it to have gone any better! It was so nice to be led by someone so easy to talk to and so clearly experienced and knowledgeable. | thought I'd be no use having never climbed a mountain ever before but you straight away adapted to my pace and ability and encouraged me the whole way.
