INTO THE OUTSIDE's Lake District Guided Walk of Scafell Pike is a sure fire classic. Scafell Pike is England’s Highest Mountain, standing an impressive 977m/3205 feet tall. It is a beckoning symbol that at some point in your life must be climbed, with all paths to the top crossing remote, rugged and wild terrain. Scafell Pike is also part of the INTO THE OUTSIDE LAKES 3000s and the National 3 Peaks.
This is a chance to explore INTO THE OUTSIDE's Lake District Guided Walk of Helvellyn & Striding Edge. This mythical mountain, standing at 950m, is one of the great mountains of the Lake District. Helvellyn offers the walker the chance to step back in time to rocky terrain and narrow glaciated edges. It is one of England’s four three-thousand-foot summits and is home of the best ridge walk in Britain – Striding Edge. Referenced by the poet William Wordsworth in his work ‘Fidelity’ the flat summit plateau is a great place to take in the stunning views in every direction. Helvellyn is also part of the INTO THE OUTSIDE LAKES 3000s.
INTO THE OUTSIDE's Lake District Guided Walk of Blencathra is a real classic. The ascent, up Sharp Edge, is an adventure you will never forget. The famous old mountain, known until recently as Saddleback, is one of the best know in the Lake District and is a true mountaineers’ mountain. Standing high over the road that links Penrith and Keswick, Blencathra, is a mountain that compels attention from all.
There are so many delights, on this INTO THE OUTSIDE Lake District Guided Walk of the Langdale Pikes, that it is hard to describe it all in such a small space. Great Langdale does such a fantastic job of summerising the Lake District; great tarns, huge crags, great peaks, stunning views, waterfalls and becks, that there really is no better place to visit. It really is a fantastic day out for anyone wanting a truly wild time.
The Coledale Horseshoe is a high level route with a stunning array of summits, passes and views. It is one of the best horseshoe walks in the northwest Lake District if not the best. Most of the hard work on this INTO THE OUTSIDE Lake District Guided Walk is spent on the first 3km. But once the hike up to Grisedale Pike from Braithwaite is complete the rest is glorious. From the first Wainwright of the day a good path leads along Hobcarton Crag to Hopegill Head and the view of the coastline, on a clear day, is unrivalled. After walking along Coledale Hause we reach the high point of the day, Eel Crag, at the head of the horseshoe. The crossing over Sail to Scar Crags is a real treat before we reach Causey Pike and the exciting descent back to Braithwaite.
