About the Event
Join us for a real mini adventure in the Lake District this Autumn!
WHAT YOU WILL SEE AND DO:
- Experience the Lake District as it changes colours
- Sleep in the wild either in a tent or a cave! (weather dependent)
- Spend a day hiking with great people
- Drive around the lakes in our party minibus
The main focus of this trip is the wild camping experience which will be adjusted to allow for the weather. If the weather is great we will sleep somewhere elevated to watch the sunrise, if the weather is not so good we will sleep lower under trees or in a cave.
Our hikes will also be adjusted to allow for bad weather, but we will be around the Langdale Fells, with a chance to hike Scafell Pike and the Elterwater area where we will visit a fantastic cave.
To attend this trip you must be fit and with an adventurous nature.
You will also need real hiking gear as the lakes start getting tricky to hike and camp from this time of the year onwards.
INCLUDED IN THE FEE
- One night accommodation in a Holliday Inn Hotel shared twin room (pay an extra £36 for a single room occupation at checkout)
- Full travel from London and back
- Guided hikes
- One night wild camping
Because of the distance to get from London o the Lakes, and because we leave so late on Friday, we will spend the first night in a hotel to help break the minibus journey.
On Saturday night we wild camp at an undisclosed location.
