Lake District Hiking Weekend

Here is a great opportunity to climb the highest mountain in England (Scafell Pike) and other iconic Lakeland peaks on our August Bank Holiday weekend trip.
Numbers are restricted to 18 participants, plus our 2 guides.
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.
Breakfasts are included in the package.
The hostel is self catering, but they do provide 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.
