This trip is as green as it gets. We only use public transport and our accommodation can be reached from major cities in the UK by train.
This is a walking trip. Please carefully read descriptions of all the walks as you will need a good level of fitness to fully enjoy all the included hikes.
You are going to spend five fantastic days in the mountains. Mountain weather can change quickly, so you need to be prepared and ready for rain, wind, and sun. Please make sure you have good walking boots, rain gear, warm clothing, and sun protection for this trip.
On day 4 we will climb Scafell Pike 4, the highest peak in England – this is going to be a long and challenging day.
This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
