DAY 1 – ARRIVAL
After arriving and getting settled into your accommodation you have the opportunity to meet the other guests that you will be sharing the weekend break with. A home-cooked meal will be prepared for you by our host for the weekend. After a quick brief from the Mountain leaders about the plan for the next day, it’s then time to socialise and settle into your accommodation ready for a cracking few days ahead enjoying the Lake District on your weekend getaway.
DAY 2 – Mountain Day
After some breakfast, you have the chance to sign up to one of two walks. One walk will be a nice and easy low-level walk taking in some of the sights of the Borrowdale and Buttermere valleys and will normally take around 5 hours. The second option is a much longer walk and will involve summiting a mountain peak ( or 2 ). In the past, we have walked to Scafell Pike and back! Whatever walk you choose you will be greeted with another classic home cooked meal by our host. The evening is yours and your free to chill out in the accommodation or visit one of the Lake Districts many pubs in the area.
DAY 3 – Honister Via Ferrata
After a slight lie in ( it is Sunday after all ) and some breakfast, we will pack up the accommodation and head up over to the Honister Via Ferrata. Following the classic mountain route that miners took to the top of the mountain. You will follow a series of metal wires and obstacles that work the way to the top of Fleetwith Pike.
