    My love of the mountains started at an early age.

    Being brought up in Keswick, in the north of the

    Lake District helped - I had a whole playing field

    of crags and rivers to explore, which I did in every

    spare moment. Graduating as a design teacher

    in my early twenties, holidays were filled with

    climbing some of the most beautiful mountains

    in the world. I discovered a real thrill in pushing

    myself to the limit and exploring new places.

    In 2000 I started Adventure Peaks which I ran as

    a one man band from my spare room! I built a

    following of loyal, like minded mountaineers, and

    together we discovered some beautiful and remote

    regions of the world.

    From small beginnings come great things, and

    today we are proud to employ 26 dedicated,

    permanent staff, whilst also offering part-time and

    freelance work to guides and instructors around

    the globe.

    Alongside the more famous worldwide treks and

    expeditions, our team of guides offer our equally

    important UK courses, with technical climbing

    instruction, guided walks, gorge and waterside

    scrambles.

    Following the success of our existing two

    Ambleside retail outlets - providing the best

    brands in outdoor & activity gear for the whole

    family - 2010 saw us open the doors to a new

    generation of store one of the most technical

    shops in the world... with two floors of extreme

    expedition gear and the latest in technically

    innovative clothing and equipment. The store is

    built around a state-of-the-art Climbing Wall and

    boulder room, with view-point Caf. It is here that

    our highly trained staff support and encourage

    individuals and groups, helping develop the next

    generation of climbers.

    Adventure Peaks is proud to boast of its

    achievements, brought about by the dedication

    of a strong & determined team...amongst many

    other rewards and recognitions for the hard work

    that our skilled leaders have achieved, are the

    World speed record for the Seven Summits and

    the Youngest to complete the Seven Summits and

    the thrice held record for the Youngest person to

    summit Mount Everest (Jake Meyer in 2005 and

    Rob Gauntlet and James hopper in 2006, George

    Atkinson in 2011). In 2014 vwe organised the

    Grand Slam for Sebastian Merriman to complete

    the Seven Summits and Two Poles in just over 12

    months.

    Despite all this success, I never forget how it

    started. My own passion for the mountains still

    inspires my choice of treks and expeditions. The

    loyalty of returning clients and assisting those

    with little experience to learn new skills is a great

    motivator.

    So, as we are recognised as a world leader in the

    mountains - and also in providing expert support

    and advice for your Expedition, Trek or Course why

    not visit us here in Ambleside - within the heart of

    the beautiful Lake District.... you never know where

    you might end up!

    As we complete our fifteenth year we will continue

    to help you Live The Dream!.

    Dave Pritt - Director

    Peaks successfully organised the grand

    slam of all nine for Sebastian Merriman to

    become the 5th Brit and 38th person in the

    world to complete this amazing challenge in

    just over twelve months.

    Whats new for 2015The Garhwal region of the Indian Himalayas

    holds a wealth of remote mountaineering

    peaks rising to over 7000m. Satopanth was

    attempted in September 2014 and from this

    we have been able to identify a variety of

    stunning peaks for mountaineers of all levels

    and unlike Nepal you are almost guaranteed

    to have the peaks to yourself:

    Mount Shivling

    Saife Peak and Thelu Peak

    Sudershan Peak

    In Nepal we have included a new 7000m Peak

    in Annapurna IV

    We offer a whole host of new courses (both

    summer and winter) to help you prepare yourself

    for bigger challenges.

    On the treks side check out Bulgaria, Poland and

    Venezuela

    Fast Track ExpeditionsNo compromise on acclimatisation (or potential

    summit days) but these expeditions include a

    helicopter to exit BC allowing higher altitudes to

    be reached safely on less holiday!!! For those on

    expeditions that fly to Lukla it also lessens the

    chance of being weather bound on the standard

    aircraft flights.
