London's largest and most active hiking group for 25 to 45ish year olds

Get outdoors, see great places and meet great people

 

 

 

We're a fun loving, adventurous and sociable multinational hiking group based in London. We organise a wide variety of hiking day trips and weekends away all across the UK. With over 10500 members between our 2 groups and over 90 hiking trips per year covering all locations and difficulty levels we hope that we can offer something that appeals to you and look forward to welcoming you to the group.

We're mainly in our late 20s to mid 40s or at least young at heart and we generally either live or work in or around London. We discover and explore picturesque and stunning landscapes and rural trails hiking around the British Isles, visiting most of the National Parks and many designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all easily accessible from London.

We organise all the logistics for our hiking trips so that you can just turn up, have a great time and meet new people.

 

What we do

Day hikes
We organise typically 6 day hiking trips a month and have over 30 routes that we use. All are pre walked and are superb routes that we carefully choose.  All trips leave from a central London station and we arrange train tickets, so you can just turn up and enjoy a great day out with us.

Weekend hiking trips
We organise 3 to 4 weekend trips a month to all corners of the UK, showing you the very best that this country has to offer. We typically rent an entire Youth Hostel just for our group and after a great days hiking either go to a local restaurant or cook at the hostel. We have over 25 different weekend trips and are adding new ones all the time!

Trips abroad
We offer a variety of trips from 3 nights up to a week and will be having a number of new trips added all the time. Where possible we aim for twin bed rooms and put the meticulous planning into our foreign trips so that you can have a great time and get to see the best of the area that you're visiting.

 

Safety

Our main hike leader has undertaken both a four day Walk Group Leader course accredited by the MLT (Mountain Leader Training) and a six day Mountain Leader course (also accredited by the MLT) as well as having a two day outdoor Activity First Aid course and over 20 years of extensive and diverse hiking and leading experience. All of our trips are run by very experienced hikers with Outdoor Activity First Aid qualifications and most of our trip leaders are a minumum of Mountain Leader trained. Sadly the outdoors always presents risks but through our experience, training and careful planning we do our best to minimise those.
