Pinnacle Walking Holidays specialise in walking holidays in the French Alps and Italian Dolomites and also offer shorter walking breaks in the Lake District and Peak District.

Many of our guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends. Pinnacle Walking Holidays are perfect for those who enjoy the company of others and being part of a small group of like minded people.

We set out to offer good value for money walking holidays in great locations; our knowledge and service will always ensure your stay will be a truly memorable one. All our walking holidays and breaks are based in personally and carefully chosen accommodation; we have selected them for their friendliness, warm hospitality and excellent locations.

We once heard a saying; “Find a job you love and you will never have to work again”; so far this proves to be true for us at Pinnacle Walking Holidays.

We’ve found a job we love and now share our passion for mountain walking with friends old and new.

Cat Bells from Little Town is a steady pull up with a short scramble to the summit but it’s well worth it, on a clear day the views over Derwent Water are awesome, as are the mountains of Skiddaw and Blencathra.
