England's Highest Mountain (3209ft) Minibus Transport & Guide Included.




Scafell Pike is England's highest mountain. It has invariably been described as exhilarating, beautiful and breath-taking. When you visit, it won’t take long for you to discover the beauty and romanticism of the great mountain. The view from the top, has inspired writers such as Wordsworth, Coleridge, Baines and Wainwright as, on a clear day, you can see Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and the Isle of Man!

It takes approximately 3 hours to walk 4km to the top of Scafell and the same back down.

This event is in total 8.7 km and a well-rewarded challenge! Once at the start of the hike, you will be led by trained mountain leaders to the summit of Scafell Pike.

A general level of fitness is required as you will be walking for 5-6 hours at a steady pace. We welcome anyone to join us! We have guided all abilities to the top of Scafell and I believe there is no better achievement than stepping out of your comfort zone!
