About Us

Who Are We?

Richard Fish Outdoor Adventures aims to support and inspire you to engage with the outdoors. Our courses and workshops aim to help you learn skills, challenge yourself and to discover the environment in which we travel. Our ethos is “more than just a walk” so we aim to add value with local knowledge, information on the landscape, wildlife and history.

We are based on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with over 4000km of public footpaths. We offer navigation and guided walks in Lincolnshire but also operate in all the over the UK, particularly in the main mountainous areas such as Snowdonia and the Lake District. We run bespoke courses anywhere you’d like to explore!

We like to run our business in an ethical way, pay our instructors a good rate, minimise our impact on the environment and insist all our events subscribe to the principle of LEAVE NO TRACE.

Nature Walks

A growing theme in our Events Calender is wildlife walks. We offer these seasonally in Lincolnshire and also in the uplands. We are passionate about nature – and we’re bound to discuss birds, trees and flowers  on all of our walks.

More than just a walk

Richard and his team are passionate about going the extra mile. We love to enthuse about nature, history, ecology etc. Leaders have great interpersonal skills so not only will you be safe, you can look forward to banter, enjoyment and learning. Many of our walks have a specific theme.

Mountain Leadership

We use experienced, qualified leaders and have public and employer’s liability insurance. Our leaders all have 16hr Outdoor First Aid Training. Richard has Outdoor First Aid, Mental Health First Aid,  and an enhanced DBS too.

Navigation

We have lots of experience offering a range of navigation courses independently, for other providers and a local college. Richard is an NNAS tutor and former Course Provider.  We now tend to offer bespoke navigation sessions beginner sessions in lowland environments to more advanced sessions in more remote or mountainous terrain.

Challenges & Guided Walks

We offer a range of popular guided walks as open sessions to book on to e.g Snowdon for Sunrise.

We organise Charity Events e.g.  in the last year or two we have organised, one in the South Downs, Yorkshire 3 Peaks, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis hikes. We also can organise any bespoke events anywhere in the UK.
