While not known for its mountains, none of which are more than 1.000 meters in elevation, England is still an excellent spot for any mountain climbing adventure.
Many of the country’s highest peaks are in close proximity in the Lake District. This means that on one trip you could climb a different peak each day. Scafell Pike (978 meters), Hellvelyn (950 meters) and Ill Crag (935 meters) are the three tallest mountains in the country and also the most popular.
The summer season is a popular time to climb peaks such as these, since the weather is usually the best. Coming in the winter allows you to test out some winter mountaineering skills and means you’ll have more of the mountains to yourself.
In England’s main mountain climbing regions, average daily temperatures range from just above freezing in the winter to 15 °C in the summer. Rain is fairly frequent throughout the year. Wintertime experiences some snowfalls.
Any mountain climbing trip to England will begin with a flight into the international airport in Manchester (MAN). From here it is easy enough to rent a car, take a bus or train to your final climbing destination.
