A Quiet Helvellyn

Helvellyn was recently voted Britain’s favourite mountain and has become popular with this new status.

This is an opportunity to have the summit to yourself and escape the daytime crowds. A rare chance to enjoy a peaceful walk and enjoy some of the best sunset views in the Lake District.

Traverse 5 Summits

The route is a tough 11-mile circular walk, starting and finishing in Glenridding, and takes you through the stunning Grisedale Valley, across 5 summits, and returning via Keppel Cove late evening.

This is an incredible route and witnessing a sunset makes it even more magical. This is an experience not to be missed. The route takes you across the following 5 peaks:

  • Dollywagon Pike – 858m
  • Nethermost Pike – 891m
  • Helvellyn – 950m (sunset)
  • Lower Man – 925m
  • White Side – 863m

Walk location 

The walk starts early evening/late afternoon from Glenridding in the Lake District. Each Helvellyn guided walk will start at a slightly different time depending on the month. Meeting times are above next to the dates.

  • What our clients say...

    I had an amazing walk. From the moment I booked I felt valued and welcomed. Great pre-walk preparation advice sent and communication was flawless. The walk was well guided with friendly guides who are very aware of ability and motivational requirements (I needed a shove, lol). Can’t wait for the next.
