Day 2, Sat 27 Jul 2024

Langdale Loop

This will be an early start with a minibus transfer to stunning Langdale.

You will begin the trek from the famous Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and your first objective of the day will be the summit of Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain. After reaching Scafell Pike the route heads back towards Langdale, ticking off the peaks as you go, before descending back into the valley for a minibus transfer back to the hostel and a well-deserved celebration dinner.

Langdale route - 26km and 1,866m of ascent

Important information

Please note that there are limited trains back from Windermere on Sundays so make sure you have booked an open ticket. You may want to book yourself another night at the hostel in case you miss your train or to avoid travelling/driving home when tired.

This itinerary is there as a guide and may change due to unusual weather patterns, the strength of the group and so on. We will do our very best to keep to the set itinerary; however we cannot be held responsible for any last minute changes that might occur. In all such circumstances, your expedition leader will have the final say.
