hill & mountain skills

Our Hill and Mountain Skills courses are designed to offer structured learning opportunities to help people gain further knowledge and gain confidence towards their own mountain adventures. 

Below we have a choice of Mountain Skills and Expedition Skills courses. These courses are affiliated with Mountain Training and are designed for walkers looking for a progressive approach to gaining skills for the hills and mountains of Britain. 

These courses are a perfect introduction to UK hill walking and will prepare you for the mountains of Snowdonia, Lake District and Scotland in summer conditions.  These courses are comprehensive, all skills needed for walking in the UK are covered and they offer a good introduction or refresher.

Fantastic day out with Sam. Very informative and hands. Didn’t matter that it poured down most of the day!
Would thoroughly recommend

Sam was very knowledgable and friendly. He found out what I needed to achieve and based the training around that. A brill weekend.

Really great course. Learnt a lot and feel a lot more confident in using a map and compass. Nice small group (4 of us). Sam is very knowledgable and friendly. Keen to do further courses with Lake District Mountaineering!


My husband booked a bespoke navigation course with Sam. Sam kept everything so simple and easy to follow, that by the end of the day I felt I had a good basic grasp of navigating. Can't wait to put my new skills to good use.

Thanks Sam. I had a brilliant time and highly recommend your courses for anyone wanting to gain more confidence when out on the fells!!


We look forward to hearing from you and working towards your mountaineering ambitions and helping to achieve your goals.
