High Peak Adventure’s aim is to allow our clients to experience the thrills, excitement, enjoyment and satisfaction gained from mountain adventures, secure in the care of our outdoor professionals.
We are based in the picturesque Derbyshire village of Hayfield, often referred to as the gateway to Kinder Scout, in the Peak District. I am a Qualified Mountain Leader, Climbing Instructor, Member of the Mountain Leader Training Association & British Mountaineering Council; I have been a mountaineer, climber and teacher for over 20 years.
The magnificent Kinder Plateau is ideal for Navigation and Map Reading tuition – an excellent place for learning how to use a compass, measuring distance by timing and pacing, as well as night navigation.
It is equally lovely to ramble along footpaths and bridleways, through meadows and beside rivers, enjoying the wonderful pastoral landscapes of the Peak District.
Fancy something further afield? Why not let us take you to Snowdonia, the Yorkshire Dales, Pennines, the Lake District or even come along with us on one of our Three Peaks Challenge adventures. Let me do the map work and navigation whilst you enjoy the walk and the views!
High Peak Adventure is based on putting the needs of our clients first with the anticipation that you will come back to us again and and be happy to recommend us to your friends.
