Helvellyn Explorer

A fascinating circular walk taking in Helvellyn and her neighbouring peaks.  Helvellyn is a true Lake District classic and high on the list of every hillwalker.  This guided walk offers exceptional mountain views and easy walking along broad grassy ridges and summit plateau.

For those who are looking to tick off the famous Wainwright’s this route will provide up to 5 Wainwrights.

Is it for me?

At approximately 17km and over 900m of ascent this route requires a good level of fitness.  The walking is generally along well defined mountain paths though you should still expect it to take 7 hours+.  There are no technical aspects to this route but good hill fitness is required.

What is included:

  • Qualified event leader
  • Small group experience – maximum 5 participants.
  • up to 5 Wainwright’s

What do you need to bring?

  • Walking boots
  • Waterproof Jacket and Trousers
  • Suitable clothing for hillwalking (Base-layer, Mid-layer and Warmth Layer)

  • Hat & gloves
  • Lunch and snacks
