Mountain scrambling is a fantastic way to explore the mountains of the British Lake District away from the main tracks. Join for a different and fun activity!

The British Lake District is the largest national park in England. Lying in the mountains of the northwest of the country, it has been recently designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It’s also a great place to practice mountain scrambling, a sport that covers the ground between hiking and climbing.

As it happens with rock climbing routes, we can classify scrambles in grades from 1 to 3. A grade 3 usually involves the use of a rope at some steeper stages and the use of both hands to reach up for the next ledge.

We can go for a single day or a 2-day trip. In fact, it’s a great plan for weekends!

According to your experience and abilities, we’ll choose a mountain scramble suitable for you.

One of my favorite scrambling trips is on the Old Man of Coniston. Here we can link 3 scrambles in one day and finish on the summit. We’ll enjoy some great views and then walk back down through a fairly easy path. Finally, we’ll go to the bar for a celebratory drink.

The British Lake District offers many opportunities for a brilliant, fun and thrilling adventure away from the most popular trails. However, this trip can be also available in other locations, like Scotland and North Wales.

You can join this trip all year round. From April to December you’ll enjoy nice temperatures, although you can also come in the winter season and find some snow!

Please, contact me if you’d like to join a mountain scrambling trip with me. I will do my best to provide you a memorable adventure!

You should also take a look at this ghyll scrambling trip in the British Lake District, an exciting half-day trip in mountain streams.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
