The Langdale Pikes, Pavey Ark, Stickle Tarm, The Lake District

Join us on a guided mountain walk in the Lake District and fall in love with the Lakeland Fells! From the rolling grassy peak of Skiddaw to the rock strewn summit of Scafell Pike, the Lakes is a beautiful landscape with a wide variety of summits and walks for all types of aspiring mountaineers. The Lake District is geologically diverse with evidence of it's formation still present. Glaciers have shaped the stunning U-shaped valleys, knife edge ridges and have left lasting impressions for us to explore!
