EXPERIENCE, FITNESS, TRAINING, KIT 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.
  • Wainwright's route is quoted as being 192 miles; these are flat map miles. In reality, the route is around 203 miles.
  • Multi-day walking across 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 FOUR 2-day walks of at least 12 miles on consecutive days prior to this walking holiday (I would suggest four walking weekends).
  • 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, rocky, wet 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 and mountains.
  • 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 and cafes 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 17,500 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 7,500 people out walking in the hills.
  • 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 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.
  • The contract for this Walking Holiday is with Coast to Coast Packhorse.
  • Terms and Conditions.
