North East Guides are based in the NE of England, and operate mainly in Northumberland National Park and the Hadrian's Wall area. However we will work almost anywhere in the North, from the Lakes and North Pennines, to the Cheviots and Borders. We are happy to travel and will provide guided mountain days in most parts of the UK. We provide a variety of outdoor activities, including: guided walks, navigation courses and hill skills courses, for groups of all ages and abilities. We offer training courses to the general public, local authorities, other public sector bodies & commercial organisations. All of our instructors are: qualified, experienced, insured, DBS checked, and several are Mountain Rescue Team Members. Visiting the North of England and looking for adventure?
