Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk (14 days)

This classic route was designed by Alfred Wainwright. The route is 190 miles long, which works out at an average of 14.5 miles per day. Shorter days occur in the Lake District, where steep gradients and rough going are encountered during the crossing of several high passes. The days get longer towards the end of the trip as we cross the Cleveland Hills and North Yorkshire Moors. 

As well as providing a challenge, the route is renowned for its variety of beautiful scenery. Particular highlights include the idyllic Lakeland valley of Borrowdale, the historic cobbled streets and market square of Richmond, and the marvellous heather-covered plateau of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Cross Lakeland Challenge (4 days)

This trip starts in the Ennerdale valley. From here we will ascend Steeple and Pillar before heading on to Great Gable. From this fantastic summit we have great views back to where we started and also to where we are heading. We then descend to Sprinkling Tarn and continue on to Angle Tarn, before the final descent to Great Langdale.

Day 2 starts from Great Langdale and the famous Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. We climb steeply back up to the summit of Pavey Ark by ascending Jack’s Rake before heading over the Langdale Pikes and on to High Raise, the most central fell of the Lake District, before descending down to Grasmere via Helm Crag.

Day 3, from Grasmere we walk up to Grisedale Tarn. This tarn nestles below many major peaks, one of them our next objective - Fairfield. From this summit great views down Windermere unfold to Morecambe Bay. Views across to our previous day’s walk show the fantastic landscape we have travelled through. From here we traverse across the summits of Hart Crag and Dove Crag before we descend via Scandale Pass down to Brothers Water.

Our final day starts with the walk up to Thornthwaite Beacon. We then head across to High Street to follow the line of the old Roman road. We follow the broad ridge north with views down to Ullswater and Haweswater as we make our way to our final summit, Loadpot Hill. From here we head down to the Bronze Age remains on Moor Divock and our journey’s end at Pooley Bridge.

This route can also be done in winter by those with some winter walking experience.

Cross Lakeland Journey

(Coast to Coast Route 4 days)

This journey follows the coast to coast path through Cumbria. The journey starts on the West Coast in the pretty little village of St Bees. From here we head through farmland, low moorland and rolling hills to the village of Ennerdale Bridge.

Day two and we head into the valleys and mountains that make the Lake District so famous and this section of the coast to coast so enjoyable. We walk from Ennerdale Bridge to Rosthwaite in Borrowdale.

On day three we enjoy the walk over to Patterdale taking in Greenup Edge, the pretty little peak of Helm Crag and the charming Grisedale Valley.

Our final day starts with an ascent of Angle Tarn Pikes and then heads over the fells above Haweswater. Our route finishes at Shap.

Although the coast to coast route is traditionally done outside the winter months, Eden Outdoor Adventures offers walkers the chance to enjoy this route all year round. If you are looking for a greater challenge then why not consider a winter crossing and enjoying the mountains in their winter mantle?

Bob Graham Challenge (6 days)

This is a classic fell runner’s challenge taking in 42 Peaks over 72 miles. The aim is to do it in just 24 long hours. Eden Outdoor Adventures will help you break it down in to six manageable legs with logical accommodation stops.

Our walk starts at the famous Moot Hall in Keswick. From here we head north on to Skiddaw, Great Calva and Blencathra before heading down to Threlkeld.

The second day takes in Clough Head, the Dodds and on to Helvellyn, before heading across to Grisedale Tarn. From here we ascend Fairfield before finishing on Seat Sandal and the descent to Dunmail Raise.

Our third day sees us climb Steel Fell, cross to the Langdale Pikes and Rosset Pike before spending the night in Langdale.

Day four begins with climbing Bowfell. We then take in a number of peaks on our way to Scafell Pike and Scafell before dropping down to Wasdale.

Day five we climb Yewbarrow and then on to Steeple and Pillar. From here we climb Great Gable and carry on to Honister Pass.

The final day we climb Dale Head and traverse across to Robinson before returning to the Moot Hall.

It is possible to do this trip in summer and winter although the latter is much tougher and will involve some walking in the dark. Both offer a great challenge with the chance to climb many of the great Lakeland fells and have some magical days out in the hills!

Ennerdale Horseshoe (2 days)

Our Journey starts on the northern shore of Ennerdale Water, at the end of the paved road. From here we climb up on to Red Pike where the view opens up to the Buttermere valley and across to the North Western fells. From this summit we follow the ridge over High Crag before descending down to Scarth Gap. Ahead lies Wainwright’s favourite mountain, Haystacks, and Inonimate Tarn where his ashes were scattered. A short steep climb brings us to this summit. The way ahead is over a broad ridge to the summit of Brandreth which then rolls on and over Green Gable. A short descent brings us to Windy Gap which offers views down Ennerdale on the right and Styhead Tarn and the central Fells on the left. A rocky ascent of Great Gable is made which offers fantastic views down Wasdale and across to Scafell Pike. Our last peak on this long day is now in front of us. We descend to a pass and then climb Kirk Fell. From here we drop down to spend the night at the famous Black Sail Youth Hostel.

Our second day starts with the walk back up to Black Sail Pass. From here we climb on to Looking Stead and then we make the famous traverse past Robinson’s Cairn to come out at Pillar Rock - a striking rock pillar with many famous climbs. The top of Pillar mountain is gained by a steep track. From Pillar we head over to Steeple and then continue across the broad ridge to finish on Haycock. From here we descend back down to Ennerdale Water and a short walk along its shore to our original start point.

It is possible to do this walk the other way round, as well as a number of variations to suit people’s wishes.
