Climb Helvellyn on a summer evening and enjoy the peace and solitude of early evening on the summit of Britain’s favourite mountain, followed by a evening walk down from the mountains.

Our Helvellyn Summer Evening Hike will follow one of England’s finest mountain walks to the summit of Helvellyn via Birkhouse Moor, Hole-in-the-Wall, Red Tarn and the classic arete of Swirral Edge (Grade 1 scramble), Helvellyn (950m), Helvellyn Lower Man, Whiteside Bank and Keppel Cove.

Our Helvellyn Summer Evening Hike is 9 miles (14 km) of breath-taking mountain scenery, with 1,050m of ascent (and descent) that will take around 7 hours to complete. We will reach the summit of Helvellyn at around 6:30pm, where you can enjoy your evening meal with the soft light of early evening across the mountains. We’ll then walk back down from the summit during the evening into dusk, arriving back to Glenridding at 10pm.

  • Enjoy the peace and solitude of early evening on Helvellyn in summer
  • Experience the thrill of the mountains, including Swirral Edge
  • Walk in confidence with a Mountain Leader
  • Small group sizes (max. 8 per leader)
  • Enjoy a full day’s walking along a classic mountain route

Experience the thrill of the mountains, with spectacular views, dramatic landscapes and a real sense of achievement as you reach the summit and enjoy the experience of early evening on Helvellyn.
