About the Event

You are finally allowed to work remotely!

Let's make the most of it with this weeklong camping trip, where you will work in the morning and go for a hike after you sign off work.

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 near Ullswater Lake (moderate)
  • Hike up Helvellyn, voted the second favourite hike in Britain (hard)
  • Hike Blencathra (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 at a working farm with toilets, showers and wifi 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.

On occasions, meeting location, time and other details might have to be changed and the event could also be cancelled last minute in case of extreme weather or other unexpected events.
