Experience, Fitness, Terrain etc...

  • This is a 14-day walking trip across the North of England, taking in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors. Full guidance will be given.
  • Multi-day walking across the valleys, hills, fells and mountains requires a good level of fitness and stamina, as we will be walking up to 20 miles each day for 14 days in succession.
  • You MUST train for this long distance walk by undertaking a number of training walks and increase your exercise and activity levels for several weeks prior to this walk. You MUST complete at least THREE 2-day walks of at least 12 miles on consecutive days prior to this walking holiday (I would suggest three walking weekends).
  • If you arrange your own accommodation then you MUST book a baggage courier service that also provides a passenger transfer service between overnight stops, in case you need a rest or sustain an injury.
  • Please provide your own walking boots, and ensure they are properly worn in and comfortable.
  • The terrain includes field, riverside, woodland, moorland, fell and mountain paths and tracks, some of which are uneven, rough and boggy underfoot. The route also includes lanes and roads, as well as numerous stiles and some stream crossings. We may also experience adverse weather conditions on the hills.
  • There are sustained ascents and descents on many of the days, and the highest point of the walk is Kidsty Pike (780m) in the Lake District.
  • There will be rest stops throughout the day, as well as 30-mins for lunch. Please provide a packed lunch each day, as it is not a good idea to rely on pubs for lunchtime food. We will call into pubs along the way for refreshments, however, as this is an adventurous activity then we ask you to only consume alcohol in the evenings.
  • Mark Reid is an experienced Mountain Leader. Mark has walked over 15,000 miles of footpaths throughout the North of England over the last decade and knows the Yorkshire Dales extremely well. Since 2007, we have taken over 700 groups out walking in the hills (over 6,000 people).
  • Part of the attraction of valley, hill and mountain walking is the challenge of tackling different terrains, landscapes and weather conditions. Every effort is made to minimize potential hazards; however, the very nature of hill and mountain walking involves a certain level of unavoidable risk of accident and/or injury. By taking part in this activity, you are aware of and accept these risks.
  • We can provide full BERGHAUS walking gear, including waterproof jackets, trousers, fleeces, rucksacks, gloves and hats.
  • We are fully insured (public, civil & professional indemnity insurance) Over 18s - our walks are designed for adults.
