Frequently Asked Questions
Am I fit enough?
A decent level of fitness is needed for these walks. A day on Scafell Pike will consist of approximately 4 - 8 hours of mountain walking. You need to feel comfortable carrying a small day-sack and walking for extended periods and during adverse weather conditions. Complete some training walks before you arrive. A little time invested in training will add to your enjoyment of the day.
Where do we meet?
This is flexible and will be to suit you. We often meet clients in Ambleside (see map), or if staying nearby we may arrange to meet at your accommodation or at the starting point of the walk. This will all be agreed in advance.
Do we need to bring food & drink?
Yes. Please bring at least one litre of water per person (minimum) and a packed lunch & snacks. During the cooler months you may wish to bring a flask of something hot: tea / coffee / hot chocolate / hot juice all work well.
What clothing should I wear?
Please see ‘walkers kit list’.
What if we need to cancel?
We will do our best to find another suitable date that’s convenient for you. Should this not be possible we will offer a full refund if you provide us with at least 30 days notice. Less than 30 days notice and we may observe the right to retain any deposit towards the activity. In the unlikely event we need to cancel an activity, an alternative date or full refund will be offered.
