Join us for this fantastic and sociable guided walk to the roof of England – Scafell Pike (978m) to see the sunrise.  Join a like-minded group, get active and savour the wide expansive views across Cumbria from the highest summit in England.

WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

This is an ideal walk for anyone who would like to summit the highest mountain in England, witness the sunrise and experience being out in the mountains in the dark and at the start of a new day.  The walk is aimed at all experience levels however, you will need to be reasonably fit to ensure your own enjoyment and that of the group as the trip will take around 8 hours.

TERRAIN:

At times a strenuous and steep path with rough and very rocky/stony sections especially in the upper sections of the mountain.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT:
