North East Guides is based in Greenside, Tyne and Wear, and offers training courses to the general public, local authorities, other public sector bodies and commercial organisations.

Britain on FootWe work almost anywhere in the North, from the Lakes and North Pennines to the Cheviots and Borders.  We are happy to travel, however, and will provide guided mountain days in most parts of the UK (given the availability of mountains).

Qualified and experienced

All of our instructors are: qualified, experienced, insured, DBS checked, and members of the MTA and BMC. Included among our staff are members of the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team. You are in good hands!

Hill and Mountain SkillsWe are now providers of Hill & Mountain Skills courses, which are nationally accredited and developed by Mountain Training.  These are two day courses designed to equip you with the basic knowledge and skills to walk safely in the hills or mountains in your own time.  You can read more about the courses here.

North East Guides is proud to support Britain on Foot.

MontaneMany thanks to Montane and Northumberland National Park for their support.
