Guided Hiking Days

UK Global Ventures run two guided hikes each month.  One will always take place in the Peak District, the other will alternate between locations such as, for example, North Wales and the Lake District.

The hikes each moth are free to attend, just book on via our events page so we know who we are expecting to turn up.
