Join us in one of the most stunning and wild areas of the Lake District for a 2 day adventure away from civilisation. We will take in some of the most beautiful mountains and terrain the lakes has to offer, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell, Esk Pike and up onto England’s highest mountain Scafell Pike. 2 full days wild camping overnight by a river and your accommodation is included in the cost... a 6 man Tipi! You will be guided by experienced mountain leaders and there will be an opportunity along the route to try some scrambling, wild swimming and learn some basic navigation using a map and compass and GPS.

We will meet in the Langdale valley and leave civilisation behind. We will work our way up towards Crinkle Crags and Summit Bowfell (one of Alfred Wainright's 6 favourite fells). Along the way we will have the opportunity to look at some navigation skills and for those with a head for heights some scrambling. We will then drop down to the Esk River and set up camp for the night. Your accommodation will be carried as a group - a lightweight 6 man tipi! We will cook, enjoy the peace and quiet, tell stories and possibly go for a wander by torchlight. No camping experience necessary as you will be looked after by your experienced expedition guides.
Day 2 we head up to Esk Pike and also take in Great End, Broad and Ill Crag and top out on the highest mountain in England Scafell Pike. We will then return to our start point but on the return if the weather suits we will have an opportunity for a wild swim in Angle Tarn before making our way down a waterfall and back to our start point.
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
