Lake District Hiking Weekend 1-4 May 2020
Here is a great opportunity to climb the highest mountain in England (Scafell Pike) and other iconic Lakeland peaks on our May Bank Holiday weekend trip.
Numbers are restricted to 15 participants plus our lead guide, Russ Mills.
You will need to be a competent hillwalker with experience of climbing some of the higher tops in Ireland.
We will be staying at the Borrowdale YHA in 2 person private rooms with bunk beds, using shared bathrooms.
The hostel is self catering, but they do provide breakfasts and evening meals to order (not included in the price), they also have a very good bar.
Keswick is about a 25 minute drive away.
It is perfectly situated for climbing Scafell Pike and other classic Lakeland Fells.
Day 1: Fly to Manchester, drive in hire cars to Borrowdale YHA.
Day 2: Climb Scafell Pike , the highest point in England (978 metres) ascending via the corridor route and taking in some amazing Lakeland scenery. Possible descent via Great End and Grains Gill.
Day 3: Drive to Glenridding in Patterdale to climb the iconic Helvellyn (2nd highest point in England) via Striding Edge. We descend via Dollywagon Pike and Grisedale back to our start point.
Day 4: Shorter day walking around the Borrowdale Fells before retuning to Manchester for the evening flight home (or sightseeing/shopping in Keswick which has some great outdoor stores).
All, of course, dependant on the weather.
The cost will be €350 per person and will include 3 nights accommodation with breakfast, transport from Manchester and guide fees. It will not include flights to Manchester (approx. €85.00 return excl. baggage etc…) or food/drink.
We require a €100 deposit at this stage to secure a place.
For further information and to book, please contact us for details.
If you have ever wanted to climb the highest mountain in England and to try the magnificent Striding Edge, then this weekend is for you.
