Get stuck into an exhilarating active weekend break or longer adventure holiday in the Lake District with like-minded people. Your days will filled with fell walking, mountain biking and gorge walking up rugged ghylls. When we’re not climbing Scafell Pike – England’s highest mountain, we’ll be on the River Esk to wild swim, kayak and SUP. Spend your days outdoors and your evenings unwinding around the fire pit with home cooked food and a beer in hand, or relaxing in the local pub, with great people around you! Embrace the wonders of nature away from the crowds, deep in the Lake District.
“At your own pace” is our motto, so there’s no pressure to do a full 20 mile hike, if that’s not your thing! Add in a SUP or canoe on the deepest lake in England and an abseil of a rock face, and you’ll have a full, active day – before heading to the pub in the early evening! Don’t feel obliged to do all of these activities, so if you fancy an afternoon off to stroll over the fells or read your book in the sun, go for it. This is your adventure!
You may prefer a weekend break near London making a splash in the Cotswolds, while if you’re keen to get out on the sea check out our Cornwall Adventure Holidays. Or you can push yourself to complete the Coast to Coast cycle challenge!
