Courses and adventures in hill walking, scrambling, winter mountaineering and rock climbing, plus indoor climbing courses and coaching.

Walk up mountains. Climb on rock. Be in nature.

Mountain Magic was founded out of a love for being in nature, enjoying adventure, working with people and appreciating our environment.

We offer courses in hill walking, mountaineering, rock climbing, indoor climbing and tailored programs for schools, young people and organisations.

Based in the Lake District, North Wales and the Scottish Highlands, we are a collective of mountain guides and mountaineering instructors with a wealth of experience.

Your enjoyment and learning are central in our approach to our work. The more you learn, the bigger your smile and the closer you are to nature, the happier we are.
