Vikki Hughes
Mountain Leader

Challenge | Reward | Renewal

Summer Mountain Leader supporting bespoke corporate days, rock climbing, guided walks, mountain skills and Duke of Edinburgh Award training.

Come on an adventure with me!

I have a passion for the the hills and mountains. From first visiting the Lake District as part of a school outdoor activities scheme I have never stopped running, climbing and biking those hills and mountains. I’ve also been fortunate enough to enjoy adventures further afield walking and xc skiing in Canada, the USA and Norway.

After a graduate career in the natural sciences, I worked in environmental protection for both the UK and Canadian governments. I have more recently chosen to follow my calling and gained my Mountain Leader Award. I am passionate about nature and the world around us and will encourage any group I’m working with to connect with the natural world.

In addition I’m working towards my Rock Climbing Instructor Qualification with an ultimate goal of becoming a Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor. I also write for outdoor magazines and online journals. Read my latest article in CoachMag.

Services Offered

Guided Walks

You can either book on to an organised group walk or have a day tailor made for you. Whether you want to tick off a Wainwright or a Munro or get well off the beaten track.

I can put together a bespoke guided walk for individuals or a small group, and lead you on the mountain of your choice in the UK.

Corporate Days

I’m a firm believer in walking and talking and think taking your work team out beyond the boardroom can have huge advantages. The wellness benefits of a day on the hill can’t be beaten. And the chance to disrupt your usual work place hierarchy can be hugely beneficial.

My corporate clients include Reebok, Rohan and Social PR.

Mountain Skills & Navigation

Increase your independence in the mountains. Become confident with a map and compass, gain greater knowledge about Rights of Way, Access Land, where you can wild camp etc. All the skills you need to allow you can explore more remote areas.

Cooking outdoors and wild camping skills sessions also available.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

I have experience working with school groups on the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, both at training and assessment.
