Lake District - 5 days of camping, hiking, having fun and not much sleep
Time & Location
About the Event
The Lake District is a hauntingly beautiful corner of our planet and easily the most scenic place in England. The landscape is simply spellbinding: shadowy ridges gilded with golden light, shimmering meadows ablaze with wildflowers, and sparkling blue lakes that reflect the whole glorious scene.
The Lake District has some of the finest walking trails in the world and we will walk some of our favourite trails, plus throw in a few extra adventures.
- What you will see, do and experience:
- Hike around Buttermere Lake (easy)
- Hike up Helvellyn, voted the second favourite hike in Britain (hard)
- Hike Catbells with a little scrambling thrown in (moderate to easy)
- Climb the Via Ferrata Xteme in the Honister Pass slate mine (extra fee and an optional activity) (hard)
- Camp by a lazy river in a space that is ours only with toilet and showers available
- Campfire with marshmallows
- Camping breakfast
- Opt-out of group activities for a little "me time"
- Swim in a lake
Other activities, walks and tours will be made available depending on the group's dynamic, weather and availability.
We have not yet set exact dates for our activities, as we will allow the weather, local COVID restrictions and other factors to dictate the best timing for them.
We will provide you with a more complete itinerary closer to the day of departure.
