About Us

At Active Mountaineering we have a passion for outdoor adventure that we believe should be easily accessible to everyone, regardless of age or ability. That is why we tailor our adventures to suit the needs of all of our customers.  Whether you want to enjoy a gentle excursion through the scenic low fells of the Lake District or scale the heights of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike or Mt Snowdon, we can ensure that you have a fun, informative adventure led by our fully qualified mountain leader Chris Littlehales.

Active Mountaineering differs from other challenge companies because we are owned and operated by a mountain guide who will be leading your adventure.  Chris Littlehales is a qualified Mountain Leader with a passion for what he does.  Our other mountain guides are highly experienced and skilled who work to ensure the success of your challenge.  Indeed, unlike many other companies, we have never failed to get our challengers onto the mountains, whatever the weather.  Our 99% summit success rate is unsurpassed by anyone else and we have the resource and skills to bring our 24 hour challenges in on time.  No other company has the expertise or experience to deliver exactly what you pay for.  We regularly see other groups being turned around unnecessarily without reaching their goal.  For your best possible chance of success, book with us.

We are constantly looking to improve our offering and are delighted to be working on our oversea adventures including Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp and the High Atlas Mountains.  These will be live on our site in the very near future.

The environment in which we work and play is at the forefront of our goals. We want everyone to enjoy the thrills of outdoor adventure and enjoy the clean, fresh air and pristine wilderness that draws us to work there. To this end, we work with our teams to help preserve this environment.
