Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: We will catch the ferry from Dublin North Wall to Holyhead on our departure day. From Holyhead we will drive through Wales to England, arriving in Keswick, which will be our base for the duration of the tour.

Day 2: On our first walking day we will take you to the roof of England: Scafell Pike. Following the river Lingmell Gill, we cross Stockley Bridge, taking us past Broad Crag and onto Scafell Pike (977m). Should we get the views that we deserve from the summit, we can see as far away as the Welsh and Scottish mountains and back home to our own Emerald Isle. We take a different but just as magnificent route down, once again offering spectacular views. Distance: 14 km, Height Gain: 1031m.

Day 3: Our next walk takes us from the quaint village of Buttermere to join a trail that takes us along the Buttermere Lake and up towards Scarth Gap Pass and High Crag. The views from here are truly unbelievable, as they will be for the rest of the walk. From High Crag we go to High Stile and finally Red Pike before making our descent back down into Buttermere for some very well deserved refreshments. Distance: 11.5 km, Height Gain: 803m.

Day 4: On our final day we will visit the town of Grasmere, the birthplace of the famous poet William Wordsworth. After this short stop we will make our way back to Holyhead, to catch the ferry home.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
