About us

my-profile-picMy name is Jo Bird.  I am an experienced walking guide and regularly guide walking holidays throughout the UK.  I have walked and lived in the Hebden Bridge area of the Calder Valley and South Pennines for many years, although originally come from the London area.  I am a member of the British Mountaineering Council and an accredited hill and moor walking group leader (Mountain Training)

I have always loved walking both alone and with groups, and have trekked in Nepal, Peru and New Zealand.   I love encouraging others enjoy being outdoors and exploring the hills, moors, valleys and woods of the local area.    I maintain an up to date outdoor first aid qualification and have public liability insurance


My partner and I also run a B&B in Hebden Bridge which is only a few minutes walk from the centre of town. So if visiting the area, you may want to combine using our accommodation as well as booking a guided walk!
