About the Event
We drive in our party minibus to the Peak District where we will explore and hike the best sections in the area with one night of wild camping and either a sunset or sunrise hike.
What you will see and do during this weekend's hiking adventure:
Climb the epic Kinder Scout
Kinder Scout is a moorland plateau and national nature reserve in the Dark Peak of the Derbyshire Peak District in England. Part of the moor, at 636 metres above sea level, is the highest point in the Peak District, the highest point in Derbyshire, and the highest point in the East Midlands.
Camp at Sunset
Set camp as the sun sets and enjoy the quietness of the mountains.
Get your Insta photos at Winnats Pass
Winnats Pass, located to the west of Castleton, is an impressive limestone gorge in the White Peak area of the Peak District. Its name is short for ‘wind gates’ due to the constant swirling wind through the gorge.
We will take our time allowing you 15 minutes so you can take tons of pictures as you please.
