Winter

Guided winter walking and bespoke days out.

At Lost Sheep Guiding one of our key aims is to use adventurous outdoor experiences to help people reconnect with nature. We have witnessed first hand how these moments can have such a positive impact on our well-being, both physically and mentally. Hiking in winter is certainly no exception.

The UK’s geographical location means that in winter our mountains become some of the most variable environments in the world. A calm blue bird sky can turn into a stormy white-out in a matter of minutes, the freezing level can rise and fall numerous times throughout a day and you can experience all four seasons of weather whilst eating your lunch. Spending time exposed to these conditions forces us to adapt, communicate and persevere, characteristics which are so important in all of our individual journeys. 

This winter we have partnered with Moelwyn Mountaineering to offer you a range of high quality winter courses and bespoke days out. Chose from our 2 day guided walks, our more in depth 5 day courses or contact us to organise a bespoke guided day out.

Our walking weekends are a great introduction to the techniques and equipment required to safely travel across the UK's mountains in winter conditions. We aim to cover a range of vital skills and then put them into practice whilst journeying through the hills.

5 Day Adventures

On our 5 day walking weeks we extensively look at the planning, equipment and practical skills required to travel safely across the UK's mountains in full winter conditions. We then put these new techniques into practice and explore some of Scotlands most interesting and beautiful mountains.

 

Looking to make the move from summer to winter hiking? Our winter walking week is a great way to gain the experience and knowledge that you need to enjoy the Uk's mountains independently in winter conditions.
