GUIDED HILL WALKING IN THE

LAKE DISTRICT

C19 Update

In-line with current guidelines, we are running this activity at limited venues, with adjustments in place to ensure everyone's safety. 

Guided Hill and Mountain walks in the Lake District

Climb Scafell Pike (England's highest mountain)? Helvellyn (voted the nations favourite walk)?

Or would you prefer to visit some of the quieter, more remote Lake District hills?

Our experienced mountain guides will look after you every step of the way, ensuring a fabulous day out!

The Lake District offers an almost unlimited choice of hill and mountain walks to suit all levels of experience and ability. Some of our most popular and favourite walks are highlighted here, but remember these are just suggestions -  we also offer bespoke guided hill walking days anywhere in the Lake District. If you don't see what your after below then contact us and we'll come up with a plan together!

  • Due to C19, we are currently only able to work with small groups (max. 5)

Cost

From £150.00 per group (max .5) per day. (please note this is per group, not per person!)

CLIMB SCAFELL PIKE

Climb England's Highest Mountain (978m / 3209ft)!

Scafell Pike from Wasdale - Our most popular guided walk

Around 5 miles, with 900m of ascent, this walk usually takes between 5 - 7 hrs to complete.

Although it is sometimes considered the "easiest" way to the summit, it is still a big challenge for many, the route is steep and on rough ground.

 

You are however rewarded (usually) with incredible views right across the North of England, Scotland, the Isle of Man and sometimes even North Wales, and of course a huge sense of achievement. 

Cost £150.00 per group (max. 5)

CLIMB HELVELLYN VIA STRIDING EDGE

Voted "Britain's best walk" in 2018, and we have to agree. 

At 950m / 3117ft, Helvellyn is the third highest mountain in England.

There are several routes to the summit, but our favourite has to be this one - The infamous Striding Edge.

Staring in Glenridding, this route is classed as a grade 1 scramble, which means that, although we wont be rock-climbing, you will need to use your hands in places, and will definitely need a head for heights. Once over the summit, we descend via a second ridge scramble, Swirral Edge (also grade 1).

Quite simply, the best mountain day in England!! (IMO)

Cost £150.00 per group (max. 5)

Catbells mountain summit cairn with view

CLIMB CATBELLS

At 451m / 1480 ft, family favourite Catbells gives a fantastic, family friendly, introduction to Hill-walking and Mountaineering in the Lake District.

Despite is stature, Catbells has a genuine mountain feel to it, with some steep sections, and even a bit of easy scrambling to keep things entertaining.

Starting and finishing at Hawesend, near Keswick, an ascent of Catbells takes around 3-4 hours.

Suitable for ages 7+ (possibly younger if they are fit and active - give us a call to discuss!)

Cost £150.00 per group (max. 5)
