The mountains and valleys of the Lake District offer spectacular views that change season by season, and often minute-by-minute! Each valley has its own flavour and each mountain its own character. While some are popular, and justifiably so, others are just as deserving but much quieter and less frequented; mainly because people haven't employed the expert services of a Mountain Leader to show them the way.
Some of the great days out and weekend trips in the Lake District include Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England; Helvellyn via the scrambles of Striding & Swirral Edges, the Langdale Pikes via Jack's Rake, Blencathra by Sharp Edge and all of the 3000 feet high peaks of the Lakes in one weekend. The walks don't have to be as demanding as these however, and there are plenty of lower level and shorter routes that are just as rewarding and often have more interest about them.
So whatever your ambition, experience or fitness, we can arrange a day out to challnenge or enrich you, just contact us to discuss your needs.
The Wainwrights are the 214 fells (hills and mountains) described in A. Wainwright's seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells (1955–1966)
Visiting all 214 Wainwrights is a common form of peak bagging. The Long Distance Walkers Association maintains a register of walkers who have completed the Wainwrights; At the start of 2014 the Wainwrights Register contained 673 names, including 7 who have completed this feat 10 times!
