Ambleside is considered to be the finest of all the fabulous lakeside towns and we will be surrounded by stunning scenery and lake views at this cosy, character filled hostel.

There are superb hikes all around Ambleside or plenty of interesting places to visit and relax around the lakes. We also plan to do activities like rock climbing and ghyll scrambling.




Price includes:

3 nights hostel accommodation.
3 breakfasts and 2 dinners.
Packed lunches.
A choice of guided hikes by trained Mountain Leaders (MLTE) and qualified first aiders.
Financial protection in accordance with the Package Travel Law 1992.


Price does NOT include:

Transport expenses.
Optional activities.

1 dinner when we will eat out in Ambleside.



Optional activities:


ROCK CLIMBING ### FULL ###

Professional rock climbing instruction is available to take you out for fun on the rocks. The Lake District is one of the best places to climb in England so you won't be disappointed.



GHYLL SCRAMBLING ### spaces available, CAR DRIVERS ONLY ###

This is generally the most popular activity and everyone seems to love it. Get your wetsuits on and descend the fast flowing mountain streams over boulders and through deep pools!



*** PLACES ARE LIMITED SO BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT! ***

The activities will take place on the Sunday and it is possible to take part in both activities as they run in sessions. It will cost only £35 per person for each session which is exceptional value for money. If you sign up for 2 activities the discounted rate is £60 for the day.

    Hello all, I'm heading up from
    Birmingham on Friday - is there any space in any cars?

    May 19

    • Jon W

      Hi Charlie. Planning on walking on Monday so probably won't be leaving until 3 or 4pm. It's about 3 hours run back into Birmingham but you never know on a Bank Holiday.
