    Does the price includes transportation? I would come with a friend. We are living in London but don’t have a car.
    How many hours walk would we have per day?
    And how difficult is it?

    • Richie Conway

      Hi Audrey. Thanks for your email and query.

      The price covers the accommodation and the guided hikes. You are welcome to organise your own travel, or alternatively there is a car share option – when you go through the booking process it asks if you wish to opt for the car share. We will always ensure that there is a car share space for all those choosing this option. The car share option is estimated at £70-£75 for this trip which includes the London to Lakes return plus all the local transfers up there.

      The walks vary in length and duration, but typically we leave after breakfast at 9am and finish the walk at 3-4pm. We have stops for lunch and pics etc. In previous bank holiday weekend trips some people have opted to sit out one of the days and they do a low level walk to Grasmere or just into Ambleside for a chilled relaxing day. The hikes are not difficult, but hiking up a mountain or hill is different to going to the gym etc, however anyone with average fitness will manage all the hikes. I will assess which hikes we do according to various factors: what people want to do; the average fitness level; and the weather forecast that day.

      Please let me know if you have any additional queries.


      Kind Regards
