Event Description

The Old Man of Coniston, one of the most recognisable and well-known peaks in the Lake District. A mountain packed with character, from lofty ridges to tranquil waterfalls, peaceful tarns and steep crags…and this circular route takes you on a high-level walk around the Old Man and its surrounding summits.  

One of the very best circular hillwalking routes in Lakeland. A high-level summit-to-summit walk which takes you to 7 peaks while enjoying some of the very best views in the Lake District. A ‘big’ mountain day, full of adventure and exploration, tackling all types of terrain and enjoying some of the best views in the Lake District. If you enjoy longer milti-peak days then this iconic walk is one we guarantee you will always remember.

Is it for me?

This is a big day in the mountains so you will need to have a good level of hillwalking fitness to complete the 13-miles and 1400m of ascent.  We highly recommend training and preparing for this walk if you are not a regular hillwalker.

    Honestly the best guided walk I have ever been on. All of the guides were great. I really liked the natural way the walking groups were formed so you could walk at your usual pace. The route and scenery was spectacular. Challenging but great fun and was lovely to chat with so many different likeminded people.
