Lake District Hiking Weekend
Friday 10 - Sunday 12 September 2021
We will guide you on hikes on lesser known and therefore quieter paths to reach un-spoilt areas of the Lakes with summits and viewpoints for those all-important photographs to record your adventure.
We will aim to be walking at a steady (not fast!) pace for 5-6 hours per day with plenty of rest stops so a decent pair of walking boots and day packs are needed. Our mountain leader will share key navigational techniques and you will leave the weekend with a greater understanding, appreciation and knowledge of the area as well as having explored the best the Lake District has to offer.
Hiking boots, clothing to suit all weather conditions and a reasonable level of fitness is required.
Itinerary & Cost:
Friday 10 September
Meet your hosts and fellow hikers for pre-dinner drinks at 6pm at the Glaramara Hotel in the heart of the Lake District.
Enjoy a 3 course ‘team’ dinner and hear further details about the potential routes, which may include Dale Head, Glaramara, Great Gable and Borrowdale Fells depending on the all important weather forecast.
Saturday 11 September
After a hearty breakfast, we will head out into the hills to explore our first day hiking.
Following a couple of stops for tea/coffee and cakes and a packed lunch, we will continue and eventually head back to the hotel for hot showers/baths and a well deserved glass of something where we will have an evening at leisure and dinner together.
Sunday 12 September
Another full breakfast will set us up for another day hike to a different location enjoying a packed lunch whilst out. We’ll return to the hotel after lunch to pack up and say our farewells.
Please note that an additional optional sunrise hike may be offered on Saturday or Sunday morning depending on the weather and interest!
We are delighted that we have managed to secure the fabulous Glaramara Hotel for our weekend right in the heart of Borrowdale - a walkers paradise.
The location of the hotel is particularly striking with commanding views of the Borrowdale Fells. It is an ideal base for us with easy access to some of the best routes in the Lake District.
The restaurant serves excellent quality home-made food using the best local and seasonal ingredients which you will definitely enjoy after working up a good appetite on the hills.
Cost: £345 per person or £325 per person if booked as a pair - (Group size will be a maximum of 8 people)
