Winter Walking

Winter walking in the Lake District Mountains offers a completely new dimension to the beauty of the area when compared with the summer. The Lake District has many fantastic mountain circuits which are just as stunning in the winter as they are in the summer and offer a great day out under winter conditions. We offer a series of winter walks listed below and will happily organise a day within the Lake District to suit your needs.

We provide:

  • Qualified and professional guide
  • All technical equipment
  • Refreshments throughout the day
  • Transport to and from venue
  • Photo memoir of your day
  • 15% off at Cotswold Outdoor

Equipment provided:

  • Walking axes (Petzl/Charlet Moser)
  • Crampons (Petzl/Charlet Moser Vasak)
  • Mountain Lite & Event fabric waterproofs
  • 30L Mammut Granite rucksacks
  • Petzl head torches

Walks include:

  • Striding Edge, Helvellyn and Swirral Edge
  • Sharp Edge/Halls Fell Ridge and Blencathra
  • The Langdale Pikes
  • The Buttermere Ridge and Great Gable
  • The Derwent Horseshoe
  • The Scafells from Borrowdale
  • The Fairfield Horseshoe or any route you would like to undertake.

Whichever winter walk you choose we will either meet you at a location of your choice or start at our estate in Ullswater and then transport you in our all-terrain vehicle to the best starting point.  For those meeting at our estate you can take advantage of our kitchen and showering facilities if you need warming up at the end of your winter walk.  We will have the kettle and hot water on and you can warm up as you look over all your stunning photos of the day. 

Due to the unpredictable nature of winter conditions in the UK we are happy to arrange last minute bookings when the conditions are best.  For more details and information contact our office on 017684 86465 or e-mail info@distant-horizons.co.uk
