Testimonials

"Path2Peaks helped me prepare for my Everest Base camp challenge. They created a fantastic trek training programme and led me through some of the wildest and remote parts of Snowdonia. I climbed the height of Everest in Wales but it gave me the fitness, confidence and mental strength to take on my personal challenge which enabled me to raise over £3000 for Action for Hunger."
Sophie MitChell
Student Nottingham University
"After being led on a fantastic walk in the Peak District by Angela and Bev I had the confidence to Climb Snowdon. Path2Peaks were just fantastic they gave my advice on how and where to place my feet when climbing, what equipment I should use and advice on how to pack my daysack. I was so amazed when I got to the top of Snowdon very proud of myself!"

"Angela took me on a wild and solo expedition to the Ogwen Valley in it was beautiful. A month after the expedition I bit the bullet and did my first solo wild camp. I drove to the next village and walled up towards the windmill as the sun was setting and nervously set up camp, my husband’s muttered words ‘you’re mad’ still echoing in my ears. It was a long night and my emotions see-saw’d between abject terror and, surprisingly, an overwhelming sense of peace.Eventually the sky lightened enough to call it morning (5.30am!), I fired up my stove and had the most blissful cup of coffee ever. I’d survived the night and, actually, had the most amazing experience. A proper microadventure. My grin barely fitted on my face on the walk back. So, once again, thank you so much for all of your help, advice and encouragement in Snowdonia."

"Bev and Angela took us on a fantastic 100 mile walk from Skipton to Penrith, over five days we carried our own camping stuff and wild camped along the way, it was an unusual but great holiday. I got to know Yorkshire, I lost a few pound and felt like I had really let go of all the stresses from my everyday life - the lack of mobile signal really helped too - surprisingly so. Angela and Bev are very experienced and knowledgeable guides who just kept us going and our spirits up. They kept us laughing and encouraged us when we had those moments we felt like we couldn't walk another step further. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves the outdoors but doesn't have the navigational skills or the knowledge to organise a safe trip"
