The Lake District contains some of the most beautiful scenery in England. It has hundreds of fells which create a vast terrain of rugged mountains.
There are only 4 fells which exceed the 3000ft contour, Helvellyn is one of the chosen few.
By beginning near to the pretty village of Grasmere, we enjoy spectacular Lakeland scenery from the start. Not content with one summit, we actually traverse two more en-route to our lofty goal of Helvellyn.

The trip starts with a meet up on Friday evening and finishes on the Sunday, however if you would like to do this at any other time then please contact us.
At the start of your trip you will meet your guide (a qualified mountain leader) for an evening briefing. A typical itinerary may look like this:
|Friday||Meet at hotel accommodation. Relax and enjoy an evening meal. Briefing by Maximum Adventure team, route planning & kit preparation.|
|Saturday||Breakfast and depart for Helvellyn. This is a particularly lovely outing dominated by spectacular scenery. Ascend Helvellyn via the magical Grisedale tarn.|
|Sunday||Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before departing and transfers home.|
Please note: This itinerary is a guide only. It can be subject to change dependent upon viability, course members' fitness, weather conditions or for any other reason the guide may deem necessary. Every effort is made to fit the course around your needs and abilities.
To do this trip you need to have a reasonable level of fitness. No previous hill walking experience is required, however the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your trip.
The day is reasonably long, approximately 5-7 hours of mountain walking. You need to feel comfortable carrying a small day-sack and walking for extended periods, therefore a few training walks and visits to the gym will undoubtedly add to your overall enjoyment of the trip.
We recommend that you follow a fitness plan in preparation for your challenge, an example of one will be sent to you when you have confirmed your booking.
Although the fitness plan we will send to you has been devised by a fitness professional, this is only provided as a guide and you should seek professional advice before starting your own fitness regime.
The best weather conditions for this trip are between April and October. Please contact us should you wish to complete a trip outside of these dates.
