A group of 6 of us went ghyll walking this summer at Church Beck with Mark. Mark was great company and very knowledgeable. We had a great day, luckily with the sun shining too! Would definitely recommend and hope to go back one day and explore more. Thank you.

Had a cracking day out mountain climbing at Scouts Crag & abseiling at Hodge Close slate quarry with our mountain guide Mark. Absolutely brilliant day, it’s our first visit to Cumbria and definitely won’t be the last. Mark was a brilliant guide, he really went above & beyond to make sure our day out was the best it could be :) Luke & Emma.

We did Ghyll scrambling in Church Beck, Conniston. Mark was our guide and was excellent from start to finish keeping in touch regularly before the event to make sure we were prepared, and discussing different options for the day. On arrival Mark took the time to explain the different options to all of us and tailored the event to our requirements, the equipment provided was excellent and provided great protection from the elements. I have done the church beck ghyll scramble previously with another company and although very good, the experience with Mountain Journeys was by far a much better experience. It was challenging for four adults and quite extreme at times, but Mark was extremely supportive and excellent company and I felt that he designed a route that challenged us but also kept us safe at all times. I would highly recommend mountain journeys for any event and I will definitely be contacting them again for my next activity in the Lake District.

What a great company! Sam, our guide for the day was amazing. The support he provided was excellent. He was able to support those that were keen on the big jumps and those who were a little worried about the jumps. We would definitely recommend your service to our friends and family. This made our trip, we had so much fun!

We had a wonderful time with our guide, Kristina, climbing Scafell Pike at the weekend. We met her very easily in the car park and started the hike earlier than many others which meant we had a quiet climb up there and hardly anyone at the summit. Kristina was very experienced and suggested we walk slower than we thought we would...which was very smart and meant we only stopped briefly twice to take off layers and it also meant we weren't out of breath at all and still made the climb in great time. My friend and I are both fit and healthy and knew we would have done what so many others were doing and speed off and then have to stop lots. So well done Kristina for the pace! We were so lucky with the weather and had incredible clear views from the summit. We walked a different path down which would never have known about and despite a minor panic from me in some scree it was thoroughly enjoyable! Thank you!

Thanks very much for your kind words, all very much appreciated. Slow and steady always wins the race, and allows more time for soaking up those amazing and inspiring views. Good to hear Kristina took you off the beaten track too, it's something we try and do as much as possible. Thanks too for choosing us. We hope to see you both again for more mountain hikes. Best wishes Mark
