Backpacking and wild camping

There's no better way to fully experience the mountains than spending a night out in them. Backpacking is a fantastic way to get away from the hustle-bustle of life and to truly relax in the best surrounds you could ask for. We offer backpacking trips completely suited to your desires, whether it be a night out wild camping by a Lake District tarn, or a week-long backpacking trip from campsite to campsite through the Scottish Highlands. Get in touch to discuss your ideal trip with us.

Backpacking ideas

Here are some of our most popular backpacking trips, in the Lake District, Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands:

Gear you'll need

Backpacking trips can either be done by camping, or by staying in B&Bs/hostels along the way, and gear you'll need varies depending on what you chose to do. We'll discuss this further with you when you make a booking, but more detail about general requirements can be found here. One thing you will need if camping is a tent, but if you don't have one don't worry, as we can sort out hiring one for you.
