Classic Lake District Peaks Grade: Moderate to Challenging
There are so many well-known peaks accessible from our base in the Borrowdale Valley that it is difficult to choose which ones to tackle on this guided walking break. It feels important to include England’s highest mountain on any holiday that is based on the classic peaks of the Lake District and so, Scafell Pike will be a definte on the list. Otherwise, we will choose our peaks based on the weather and the group. Possibilities include: Haystacks, Wainwright’s favourite peak; Great Gable; Green Gable; Red Pike; High Spy…the list goes on.
A good level of fitness is required for this one as you will be tackling some big peaks which, whilst mainly on good paths, have elements of loose ground plus some basic scrambling for short sections.
We will be staying at the Glaramara Hotel which has been transformed over the last few years into an extremely comfortable hotel with an excellent menu and bar. The holiday is full board so once you’re there you will spend very little.
