Tailored Outdoor Activities Instruction, Coaching & Guiding

Welcome to Peak Instruction; an outdoor activities & training provider. Run by Pete & Beth Knight, we have our base in the beautiful Peak District but can deliver a range of activities across the UK. Our goal is simple, to deliver safe, engaging & enjoyable outdoor activities to every client group.

We are specialists in bespoke activities and we treat each booking as uniquely as you are. Our team can deliver taster activities, challenge days and technical training throughout the year to individuals, families, friends or corporate groups. There is also a selection of publicly bookable outdoor activity sessions run each year. Get in touch for a no-commitment chat about your activity requirements or see the Public Activity pages for existing dates. Caving is a real passion for us here, and we are able to lead & coach at the very highest level of the sport and deliver instructor qualifications.

Covid-19 Information Expand

Update March 2021: The Government have just published a roadmap for leaving lockdown and easing restrictions. The dates where different activities are permitted may change if Government targets are not met, but we have at least been able to put in place a provisional framework for the delivery of activities and training again.

Step 1 March 29th – We will start to take bookings for 1:1 training and assessment courses.
Step 2 April 12th – We will open for private bookings of up to 6 people from a single household.
Step 3 May 17th – We will start to offer private bookings of up to 30 people from no more than 2 households or up to 6 people from a mix of households. Public activities will resume with up to 6 participants.
Step 4 June 21st – Restrictions on group sizes and household mixing no longer in place. We will return to offering our full range of activities at pre-pandemic ratios and maximum size limits.

You can see a post with information on how we will keep you safe whilst taking part in our activities here.

Goldcrest near #NewMills. There was a pair zipping about by the river. They never stay still and I feel very lucky to have gotten this close shot.

A Nuthatch singing near the River Goyt in #NewMills. Despite the cold, it was a fantastic morning to be out with the camera.
