The Cumbrian landscape, with its famous fells, swooping valleys and sparkling waters, offers a real adventure playground for many outdoor practitioners who take groups out to climb, hill-walk, canoe, ghyll scramble and take part in a whole host of other outdoor activities.

Landscape is also our support system without which we could not exist. Everyone depends on landscape for food, water, fuel and clean air. A beautiful and diverse landscape with a wealth of wildlife and human history inspires and enriches our lives and provides a ‘natural health service’ for mind and body.

Our Leaders Landscape Training Sessions are aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen their understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable them to pass on their new-found knowledge to those with whom they work. The sessions are also offered as accredited Continuous Professional Development training through the Mountain Training Association.

“I thought the trainer was excellent. Very knowledgeable about wildlife and explained things in a very clear way. Usually when I go out on the Fells it is about getting from A to B. This day demonstrated that it’s not how many miles you cover but what you take time to look at on the way that is important!”

“Fantastic location, lots of information in a short distance. Great trainer.”

“Excellent, informative, enjoyable.”

“Really interesting day - refreshing to learn something new.”
