Details

We offer grade 4 (moderate) and grade 7 (challenging) walks.

Our programme of grade 7 walks is adventurous and challenging and includes time in wild countryside. We aim to take in peaks and rough ridges and you need to be comfortable with the odd bit of scrambling or scree. Stamina is important, and occasionally a good head for heights when there are steep drops. The walks range in distance between 8 to 13 miles with ascents and descents normally in the range of 700m to 1000m.

Our programme of grade 4 walks is designed to take in many of the most famous areas in the northwestern Lakes, including Haystacks, for example, on terrain which presents few challenges in fine weather. There may be occasional steep or rough sections, but these can be taken slowly. The walks range in distance between 6 to 11 miles with ascents and descents normally in the range of 300m to 500m.
