CONISTON WALK WITH STEAM YACHT EXPERIENCE (8 MILES)

April 25, 2020 @ 11:00 am - April 26, 2020 @ 2:00 pm BST

Have you ever wanted to explore the wonders of the Lake District?


We pick up the Gondola Steam cruise at 11am from Coniston Pier on Saturday morning and disembark at Lake Bank (45 min journey) where we will commence a rewarding 12km walk through the contrasting scenery of Beacon Fell and Coniston shoreline.


YOUR HASSLE-FREE ADVENTURE INCLUDES:



  • Steamboat cruise ticket

  • A guided 12.2km (approx 8 miles) walk around some of the most amazing scenery in the Lake District.

  • A very friendly, welcoming, fully qualified and experienced walk leader on the ground to guide you the way.

  • Medical support for minor medical needs. (All guides carry a first aid kit and are first aid qualified).

  • A pre-walk presentation explaining the itinerary, what to expect and answering all of your questions.



ACCOMMODATION


The Adventure Geek team will be staying at the YHA in Coniston.  Please feel free to book direct, or AG can complete the booking for you if you prefer (click here)


THE ROUTE AND FITNESS LEVELS


The walk takes you up to 200m above sea level on clearly defined paths with some short, quite steep climbs and easy descents. Conditions underfoot can be wet at certain times of the year but the views are more than rewarding.



The route then follows the lakeshore path and is very straightforward but also has wonderful views. The timings given are for a fit pensioner, and we will regroup often.


Note: We always have a tail walker for all of our walks, so that no-one is left behind.


COSTS & OPTIONS:



  • Walk including steam yacht experience £54 + Eventbrite fees per person. 

  • If you would also like to book your accommodation through Adventure Geek at £30 per night, per person. (YHA Coniston), please visit the original booking here
