Why choose us:

In a nutshell, Large Outdoors helps you enjoy walking and other outdoor adventures in those areas of the country that put the Great in Great Britain!

• You don’t need to worry about the planning. We take care of the food, accommodation, route planning, logistics and will even give you advice on the kit you need to bring.

• We enable you to explore Britain’s wilder spots, achieve tougher challenges or discover the joys of being outdoors in a sociable and safe atmosphere.

• All our team have first-hand experience of joining a group when they knew no-one. This means our hosts are very tuned in to the imagined horrors that some feel when they’re about to join one of our trips and will sweep those fears away as soon as guests arrive.

• Yes, we have longer treks but many of our trips offer options for those who are looking for easier walks or who simply want to saunter and relax.

• Did we mention we’re about putting fun into the outdoors? Well it’s worth mentioning again. In fact, imagine those weekends that leave you buzzing; the ones where you’ve laughed a lot, succumbed to the charms of the countryside, enjoyed great food and relaxed.

Ben Nevis - Challenge Weekend

Needs a location

Ben Nevis Walking Weekend - Glencoe To take into account the longer travelling time when it comes to tackling Big Ben, we make a weekend of the challenge so that guests can take the time to savour and fully enjoy the experience with their fellow hikers. Staying in a four-star hostel in the heart of Glen Coe for two nights, we head out early on the Saturday to enable plenty of time to bag the 1345m peak and make the most of those beautiful summit views. Returning to the hostel there’s ample time for a celebratory pint at the local pub before we serve up a suitable feast for the group that will satisfy the largest of appetites.

Summits of Snowdonia: WEEKEND

Needs a location

Join our social walking adventure and meet other likeminded walkers, our base is a lovely guest house in the heart of Snowdonia and each day we will head out to explore the summits of Snowdonia. Snowdonia is a fantastic National Park with an endless array of potential mountain walks. But too many people come to the area and just head up Snowdon, without considering other adventures. On this weekend we aim to take you to some of the other greats, all with a sociable group and led by an experienced mountain leader. We could head over to the rugged Glyderau, up onto the highlands of the Carneddau, to the summit of the lonely Moel Siabod, or perhaps further south to the charismatic peak of Cnicht. We’ll tailor the weekend to the weather and what the group feels like doing. What's Included: Two nights guest house accommodation Two days of gentle guided day walks Friday night meal, breakfasts and packed lunches To join this sociable weekend you must book this via our main website: www.largeoutdoors.com/event/summits-of-snowdonia FAQ's For important information on what’s included with our standard trips, such as what food we supply, arrival times and answer to our most commonly asked questions please visit out our FAQ’s page: www.largeoutdoors.com/general-information/faqs/ Follow us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Large-Outdoors Join our members page and share stories, pictures and reviews here: www.facebook.com/groups/largeoutdoors View our car share page here: www.facebook.com/groups/largeoutdoorscarshare
