Guided Walking Holidays - Great Lakeland Ridge Walks Your muscles€he, your feet feel the miles, and you certainly know youve exerted yourself to the full but the views and the sense of€hievement more than compensate as you finally relax in the comfort of your country house hotel. This is a high grade itinerary based at Hassness on the shores of Buttermere and probably one of the toughest and most exhilarating weeks walking available in Britain! This challenging six day programme for experienced mountain walkers includes several walks at the top end of the grade and, in less than optimal conditions, may be closer to grade 9; expect to walk 8-12 miles each day with ascents of between 700-1000m, some rock scrambling and a bit of exposure, so youll need to be fit from the word go and have a head for heights. This is a holiday where we aim for Lakeland Ridges, those long narrow elevated crests which run between peaks or from the mountain base to the top and offer some of the most attractive and challenging forms of hill walking. After reaching the top, you are rewarded with some of the finest mountain walking anywhere in the world. These ridges allow you to really stride out and admire the panoramic views. They are planned to capture the spirit of grandeur and wide ranging diversity of our hills. We plan to include the following walks in the week: the High Stile Ridge; from Ullswater to Striding Edge; Scarfell Pike; Bowfell and crinkle crags; Skiddaw via Ullock Pike and Carl Side; Haystacks; Brandreth and Fleetwith Pike. Due to the nature of the terrain and changes in weather conditions, the itinerary may be subject to change locally.
