Hiking and mountaineering are the 'bread & butter' events of OutdoorLads. Also known by their more regular name as 'Day Walks', there are hundreds taking place across the country throughout the year. Day walks can take place either as stand-alone one day events, or as part of a hostel or camping weekend.
