Enjoy the great outdoors at the Peak District Walking Festival

Peak District, Derbyshire

Put on your hiking boots and join in with one of a hundred themed events and walks happening across the Peak District.

Every April and May, the hills of the Peak District come alive with the sound of…well, walkers. Their mission? To join in with some 100 events that make this one of the UK’s biggest walking festivals.

There’s a trail for every level of experience – the themed walks mean you can do everything from scaling the dizzy heights of a mountain, to heading off on a three-day hiking trek across the Derwent Valley. Or perhaps just opt for a simple, gentle wander from village to village?

Trained guides will help you brush up on your mountaineering knowhow, on courses in essential skills like navigation. So grab your boots and channel your inner Wainwright – we’ll see you at the top.
