We visit the Lakes every year and always use Mountain Journeys (Mark) for any extra outdoor mountain activities. This year was the fourth time we have hired Mark's services and once again we weren't disappointed.
In the past Mark has taken up on all day treks up Blencathra and Pavey Ark in the Langdales. We progressed to half a day scrambling (Raven's Crag) and this year we took on Jack's Rake with Mark.
Myself and my husband do not have a bad word to say about Mark and Mountain Journeys! We come back year after year as Mark is knowledgeable, responsible, experienced and NEVER patronising. He encourages you to push yourself but at your own pace and if you feel you can't do it he will find a way you can. You feel safe with Mark. Even when the scarey bits feel like they may defeat you, Mark has a way of encouraging you without pushing you too fast. On the other hand he doesn't 'nanny' you and let's you do things yourself but at your own pace.
I highly recommend this company if you want to try something different. Mark will also point out interesting facts about the environment and is good company for a day out!
I rarely take the time to give reviews on TripAdvisor despite always meaning to do it but this time I really feel it's worth getting off my backside and doing it!
