Guided walks from Stuart Hodgson (The Hiking Photographer)


Often a lot of people see my photos from some of the Lake District's best view points, and wish they could see these views for themselves - but as they are not too familiar with the area or indeed not very confident about hiking the lakeland fells - then I am offering guided walks to help people see the Lake District's amazing beauty first hand.

Through my guided organised walks - I hope to help people get into walking and discover the best views. On these walks I will take care of the walking route, leaving you free to soak up the scenery, enjoy the finest views and meet some like minded walkers!
