OUR MISSION: To Educate, Enthuse and Encourage hillwalkers to experience the mountains in an enjoyable, responsible and safe manner.

We can offer a wide range of hikes and training courses across Ireland and at a range of grades to suit your own abilities and aspirations.

We work with some of the biggest charities and companies in Ireland, to provide them with a special day tailored to their specific needs. If you  are looking to organise a challenge event or simply a special day out for you or your family, please get in touch and let us do the work for you.

Our rates for guiding private clients start from €300 per day (inc. VAT).

For groups larger than ten ask us for a special quote, as it may be necessary to use an additional guide.

We enjoyed a wonderful day hiking/walking in Wicklow. Russell Mills picked us up at our Dublin Hotel for a beautiful experience on the trails from Glendalough along the Wicklow Way. Russell was very knowledgeable about the trails and matched the route perfectly to our skills. We enjoyed wild blueberries and a few raindrops along the way during our 5.5 hour trek. Highly recommended!”… Franny C. – Pennsylvania

I booked three separate guided hiking days with Russ earlier this year and I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience. Russ has an undeniable passion for hiking and for the Wicklow Mountains, what Russ doesn’t know about these mountains isn’t worth knowing!…” Chris W. – Brisbane, Australia
