About Us

Mountain Ascents is a small, family-run business, born from a passion for exploration and a deep appreciation and respect for the natural world. Each area we cover is unique in its beauty and its history. Our aim is to share our knowledge and expertise so that others can admire the UK countryside on a whole new level and have an unforgettable experience.
 
Summit individual peaks for unbeatable views, undertake multi-day treks for deep countryside exploration, learn to navigate so that you can one day explore the wild by yourself, take on one of the UK’s great mountain challenges, or simply join us on an exploratory ramble to learn about the upland and lowland environments. We are here to assist you with whatever you would like from a walking holiday in the UK.
We operate across the UK from the Scottish Highlands to the South of England and all the mountain and Upland areas in-between. With over 20 years of personal countryside exploration we have learned about the incredibly rich and complex ecosystems in the UK’s national parks and protected areas, we’ve discovered hidden gems and unbeatable views across the country, and we’ve witnessed how the changing seasons transform landscapes from the delicate blossoms of spring to the ethereal beauty of a frosty winter. Our intimate knowledge of the UK countryside and its inhabitants allows us to create rare and unforgettable experiences for our clients.
We put an emphasis on fun, health and wellbeing. Reconnect your body with your mind and enjoy yourself on one of our fitness walking events. We have a range of activities suitable for all levels of experience, including related speciality activities such as nordic walking, environmental talks, and bushcraft activities.
Mountain Ascents’ director is Alan who has over two decades of experience in bushcraft activities, rock climbing, winter climbing, and hillwalking and trekking. With a degree in Environmental Management and an MSc in Environmental Health, Alan is highly passionate about the environment and is committed to sharing his passion and respect for nature through his work.
A small team of freelance guides and instructors, personally known to Alan, are sometimes contracted, each of whom bring their own wealth of knowledge and experience in specialty fields.
Join us on one of our open events, enquire about our personally curated set of private events, or get in touch to create your own adventure. We offer bespoke events for a truly special and unique walking holiday in the UK countryside.
