Wild Camping & Beginners Navigation (Optional Hammock Experience)

Wild camping adventure with a beginners navigation course in The Lake District! Minibus Transport & Guide Included.



Easy / Moderate

You read the title correctly, we are going to do it all! We have specifically designed this wild camping trip for a group of beginners. The Lake District wild camp will start our journey in the central Lakes, a short walk and we'll drop our bags to get some fantastic views before dropping down to our chosen camping spot.


We'll then run a beginner's navigation course in the mountains, learning the basics of map reading and using a compass. You'll have the option to hammock in the wild if you'd prefer! Beware if you like your creature comforts as there are NO toilets, TV or kitchen. This is an exclusively wild adventure! Everything you need you will carry. Join us on our day trips from Manchester today. Travel to and from the Lake District is included!

On the day

The Lake District Wild Camp/Hammock and Navigation

Day 1 - This hike will be 4km and take roughly 2 hours before we reach our wild camping spot. We’ll pitch our tents, and hammocks, cook some food, and start the navigation course. You will be led by mountain leaders.

Day 2 - We will start with an easy morning breakfast and start our descent roughly 4km back to the Minibus.

We welcome anyone to join us! We have guided all abilities around the mountains, and we believe there is no better achievement than stepping out of your comfort zone!
