Tourist Info


Join us on our favourite walks in the lovely, varied and exciting scenery of Lakeland, or the majestic Continental mountains of the Pyrenees and Dolomites.

Walking can be done at any time of year, and some of our most popular tramps take us into the winter fells of the Lake District and Scottish Highlands.

The maximum number in any given party is six (6).


Most of our walking is in the Lake District, but we also offer trips to the Isle of Skye, Isle of Arran and the Scottish Highlands..

Conditions / Level of Difficulty / Fitness Requirements

We cover a wide spectra of difficulty from beginner to expert, so whether it is your first time or one of many, we can cater to your particular needs or desires. Our clients range from young to old and from low to high fitness, and neither age or physical condition are barriers to an enjoyable holiday with Go Higher. We have found that the most important factor in you achieving your goals is self-confidence, which we believe we can enhance.

As a general guide, our walks typically span a 7 to 8 hour day, and we will cover between 6 and 10 miles daily and ascend between 2,000 and 3,000 feet. Distance and height gain will be balanced, however, ensuring a pleasant pace, with time to appreciate our surroundings.

What We Provide

Go Higher will provide:

  • instructor/s;

  • transport to and from the walks (but see specific courses and holidays for exclusions - e.g. airfares).

What You Need to Provide

  • adequate personal insurance;

  • sturdy, waterproof footwear suitable for fellwalking (and for snow if winter walking);

  • gloves;

  • waterproofs;

  • small rucksack to carry personal items, lunch and extra clothing;

  • warm clothing (regardless of weather);

  • camera;

  • packed lunch / flask;

  • sun cream / lip balm; and

  • small amount of cash.

Remember that conditions can change rapidly in the hills, so always be prepared! It is often worth bringing along a spare set of clothing to change into at the end of the day in the event that conditions do worsen.

Also check the conditions for your chosen course or holiday, as requirements vary for each course/holiday.
