What it takes me to deliver guided hikes

For your information and understanding, below I have briefly outlined what it takes to deliver guided hikes including group guided hikes. The four steps are what I do to create and prepare before taking clients out.

The same principles would apply to private hikes too. The below steps are important to understand from a client perspective so that they can book my hiking trips in confidence.

Guided Hikes – Step 1:

Planning

Firstly, I would envisage a hike that would be leisurely, fun and tailored to be enjoyable. An experience unlike any other.

Secondly, I would sit down with a paper map, plot the route including any points of interest.

Finally, I would measure the length of the route as well as the altitude and determine the type of underfoot trails.

Guided Hikes – Step 2:

First Walk

With my paper map and compass in hand, I embark on the hiking route.

I meander and manoeuvre along the trail, adjust the route, amend the route as I see fit for a more enjoyable and safe experience.

I often end up walking all day, even when it’s only a 4 hour walk just to create the best hiking route possible.
