The North Pennines are scattered with footpaths and rights of way for groups to practice navigation skills. Our instructors are qualified to lead groups on the fells and are well used to the local conditions which can vary dramatically. Familiar with the terrain, our staff are able to set up group challenges in and around the area. In the Lake District, just 40 minutes away, are walks of all levels. Our instructors can organise anything from a half, to a full day adventure, which can include climbing or open canoeing. Expeditions, including over-night stays can be discussed.
