What we're about

Why choose us:

In a nutshell, Large Outdoors helps you enjoy walking and other outdoor adventures in those areas of the country that put the Great in Great Britain!

Here are a few more reasons:

You don’t need to worry about the planning. We take care of the food, accommodation, route planning, logistics and will even give you advice on the kit you need to bring.

We enable you to explore Britain’s wilder spots, achieve tougher challenges or discover the joys of being outdoors in a sociable and safe atmosphere.

All our team have first-hand experience of joining a group when they knew no-one. This means our hosts are very tuned in to the imagined horrors that some feel when they’re about to join one of our trips and will sweep those fears away as soon as guests arrive.

Yes, we have longer treks but many of our trips offer options for those who are looking for easier walks or who simply want to saunter and relax.

Did we mention we’re about putting fun into the outdoors? Well it’s worth mentioning again. In fact, imagine those weekends that leave you buzzing; the ones where you’ve laughed a lot, succumbed to the charms of the countryside, enjoyed great food and relaxed.
