PEAK PILGRIMAGE

£180.00£275.00

The Peak Pilgrimage Trail is not just a walking holiday, it's a vacation, a vacation from life.  The 35 mile Peak Pilgrimage is a beautiful walk between Ilam and Eyam, two villages devastated by plague in the 17th century. There are higher mountains, steeper tracks and greater walking challenges in other parts of Britain, but nowhere is the walking more lovely, relaxing, accessible and soul-restorative than in the Peak District National Park. This is a journey for anyone who likes walking.

WALKING DATES: 1st – 3rd September 2021

Note: accommodation is three nights from 31st August, checking out on 3rd September. 

  • Optional accommodation (or book your own)
  • An experienced guide on the ground.
  • Peak Pilgrimage passport and guidebook (collect stickers along the trail from the churches)
  • A fitness plan, plus training hikes to get you ready for your challenge.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

This route is absolutely stunning but does have its challenges with a few steep parts.  Most of the trail is along the valley and following a river (Hope Valley & Dovedale) – although we do have some steep sections, no tall peaks to climb.

TO PREPARE YOU FOR THIS HIKE, WE ALSO INCLUDE:-

  • A training plan (optional)
  • A kit list
  • A preparation evening, so everyone can meet everyone beforehand, and Julia will talk through things such as health and safety, the terrain, what to expect, transport arrangements.
  • You will also be invited to join the WhatsApp or Facebook Group so we can share photos and use this as a communication channel.
