Scafell Pike - England's Highest Mountain

July 2021 


Scafell Pike Days Out


Climb England's highest mountain!

Saturday 17th or Sunday 18th July 2021


At 978m (3,208ft) above sea level, Scafell Pike is England's highest mountain in the heart of the Lake District National Park. There are numerous ways to walk up Scafell Pike. The most common is from Wasdale but this route is a brutal slog. There are some other amazing routes which are overlooked for being slightly longer.


So we will be setting off from the marvellous Langdales. We have the option of bagging a few extra Wainwrights on the day if we want to and that's up to the weather and what people want to do. Most importantly we also have a pub to dive into at the end! We will also aim to include the famous "Corridor Route".


Meeting Point:

09:00am Outside the Old Dungeon Ghyll pub, Great Langdale, Ambleside LA22 9JY

To view the start point on Google Maps, please click here. This will open in a separate tab.


DifficultyThe approximate total distance & ascent is 22km / 13.5 miles distance and 1,610m / 5,282ft ascent. There is a good track although it can be steep in places. The walk is shorter with less ascent if we miss out the other Wainwrights en route.

Cost: The guided walk up Scafell Pike is £39 per person if booking for one, £35 each if booking for 2-3 people or £33 each if booking 4 or more. 16-18 year old's are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian. You will need to provide your own transport and accommodation.

Numbers: I can take a maximum of 10 and a minimum of 4 in order to run the events. If there are fewer than the minimum numbers booked you'll get a full refund.

Guided Trips - Frequently asked questions

Is this suitable for me?

You will need to be fit and have some walking experience. The track is relatively popular but the weather could be doing anything and the Lakeland hills are famous for being steep. We're not going to be going at an army march pace but more leisurely to enjoy the day. I will always try and accommodate everyone but if unsure please drop me an email.

What do I need to bring?

You will need all of the essential kit. You can see the recommended kit list here.

I'm coming from further afield, where can I stay nearby?

This is up to you depending on your budget. There are an enormous range of hotels, bunkhouses, hostels, campsites and B&Bs in and around the Langdales. You can also look around Grasmere, Ambleside and Rydal.

If you don't like the idea of the online booking or would prefer to pay a 10% deposit for now, that's fine as I can simply raise an invoice. Please note that this has an additional £5 non-refundable administration fee.
Simply click 'Book Now' for the day you are interested in and follow the instructions. You'll get an automated confirmation reply but I'll follow that up when I get back to civilisation to say thanks and with more detail about the trip.
