Based in the beautiful English Lake District and run by local Mountaineering & Climbing Instructor Si Withington, Lakeland Ascents offer a range of professionally run courses and instruction, plus private guiding in the mountains of the Lakes, Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands. We also offer a range of Adventure Days via our sister company lakedistrictactivities.co.uk.
Our range of professional mountain skills courses and guiding gives us an enviable reputation. Regardless of whether you’re looking for a qualified instructor to help you develop your mountaineering or climbing skills, a mountain guide to lead you up Scafell Pike, to host a team challenge event, or learn how to navigate in a far corner of the Lake District, our team can help.
Our mountain training courses will give you the skills you need to fully embrace the outdoors in any season: from courses for beginners, through to advanced winter skills training, we can help you develop the skills that you need to head out on your own adventure.
Our website features set courses and guiding packages, but we’re always able to provide flexibility or create a bespoke course to meet your needs. Just get in touch.
