Adventure Peaks Worldwide Mountaineering and Trekking offers one of the most extensive programmes of Expeditions, Treks and Courses for walkers and climbers provided by any British adventure travel company. Our aim is to offer something for all levels and abilities.
Adventure Peaks prides itself on the number of clients progressing through courses and expeditions and our reputation is growing from repeat bookings and word of mouth. We are always very happy for you to contact past clients for feedback.
Whatever mountaineering experience you are looking for, we believe you will find it with us; whether it is just for yourself, your family and friends or a group of like-minded people, we’re sure we can find something to suit.
My love of the mountains started at an early age. Being brought up in Keswick, in the north of the Lake District helped – I had a whole playing field of crags and rivers to explore, which I did in every spare moment. Graduating as a design teacher in my early twenties, holidays were filled with climbing some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. I discovered a real thrill in pushing myself to the limit and exploring new places.
In 2000 I started ‘Adventure Peaks’ which I ran as a one man band from my spare room! I built a following of loyal, like minded mountaineers, and together we discovered some beautiful and remote regions of the world.
From small beginnings come great things, and today we are proud to employ 12 dedicated, permanent staff, whilst also offering part-time and freelance work to guides and instructors around the globe.
Alongside the more famous worldwide treks and expeditions, our team of guides offer our equally important UK courses, with technical climbing instruction, guided walks, gorge and waterside scrambles.
Following the success of our existing two Ambleside retail outlets – providing the best brands in outdoor & activity gear for the whole family – 2010 saw us open the doors to a new generation of store “one of the most technical shops in the world…” with two floors of extreme expedition gear and the latest in technically innovative clothing and equipment. The store is built around a state-of-the-art Climbing Wall and boulder room, with view-point Café. It is here that our highly trained staff support and encourage individuals and groups, helping develop the next generation of climbers.
Adventure Peaks is proud to boast of its achievements, brought about by the dedication of a strong & determined team…amongst many other rewards and recognitions for the hard work that our skilled leaders have achieved, are the ‘World speed record for the Seven Summits’ and the ‘Youngest to complete the Seven Summits and the thrice held record for the ‘Youngest person to summit Mount Everest’ (Jake Meyer in 2005 and Rob Gauntlet and James hopper in 2006, George Atkinson in 2011). In 2014 we organised the Grand Slam for Sebastian Merriman to complete the Seven Summits and Two Poles in just over 12 months.
Despite all this success, I never forget how it started. My own passion for the mountains still inspires my choice of treks and expeditions. The loyalty of returning clients and assisting those with little experience to learn new skills is a great motivator.
So, as we are recognised as a world leader in the mountains – and also in providing expert support and advice for your Expedition, Trek or Course why not visit us here in Ambleside – within the heart of the beautiful Lake District…. you never know where you might end up!
As we complete our eighteenth year we will continue to help you ‘Live The Dream!’.
