      Join one of our friendly groups, meet like-minded people and discover the majestic peaks and valleys of the Lakes.

We will be led by a qualified Mountain Leader to hike up Helvellyn and Scafell Pike, and explore some of the iconic valleys and lower altitude walks which will almost always end in a wonderful cozy pub! We’ll explore the magic that inspired Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter and trial some of the Lake District’s foodie delights.

      Lake District Walking Itinerary

      Day 1 Arrive in Keswick and Walk to Buttermere

      We will meet you at Penrith Railway station at 1.00pm and make a short transfer to the market town of Keswick, situated below the mass of the Skiddaw mountains and alongside the beautiful Derwent Water. From here we begin our exploration with an introductory walk to Castlerigg stone circle, with stunning views over Derwent Water. We’ll head back into Keswick for our first nights dinner together as a group.

      Mileage: 4-8 Miles 

      Day 2The Buttermere Ring

      To see why the movie stars from across the globe have settled at Buttermere, we will take to the fells to see it from above and to start ticking off our Wainwrights by climbing Hay Stacks, Fleetwith Pike and Whiteless Pike. We will trial the Lakes Gin in the evening at The Bridge Inn pub and eat some well-earnt Cumbrian dishes, before transferring back to Keswick for an early night before our sunrise hike.

      8 miles

      Day 3Sunrise on the Summit of Helvellyn

      Dawn is a magical time of day wherever you are, but a dawn hike to catch the sunrise at the top of Helvellyn with a picnic breakfast on the fell, is an experience not to be missed. Following our climb up the third-highest point in England, we will make our way back to Keswick, for a relaxing afternoon tea at Lingholm Kitchen and Walled Garden. For those that want to continue ticking off their Wainwrights, there is an optional 5 mile hike up Catbells and back along Derwentwater, before dining at The Royal Oak in Keswick, known as Wordsworth’s favourite hideout.

      Up to 11 miles 

      Day 4The Langdale Pike and Passes

      After a later start to enjoy the delights of Keswick, we will grab lunch from the local’s favourite Relish sandwich shop and make our way to the fantastic circuit of the Langdale Fells where Wainwright stated, “no mountain profile arrests and excites the attention more…”. We will have the opportunity to claim 8 more Wainwrights by climbing to the familiar tops of Pike of Stickle, High Raise, Sergeant Man, Tarn Crag and Blea Crag. After a good day of fell walking we will finish with an early evening stroll to the Wainwrights pub to rest and recover. 

      10 miles 

      Day 5Scafell Pike - the Big One!

      Today is the day we tackle Scafell Pike; at 978 metres it’s England’s highest and most prominent mountain. We will confront it from Great Langdale valley armed with Relish sandwiches, Kendal mint cake and Grasmere gingerbread. Following the most scenic spot for our picnic lunch we will track gently down before heading back to the Royal Oak for a celebratory dinner.

      11 miles

      Day 6 Farewells and ongoing travel!

      After a leisurely breakfast we will transfer you to Penrith for farewells and help with ongoing travel.
