  • Description

    At 978 metres above sea level, Scafell Pike is England's tallest mountain. With multiple route options of varying degrees of challenge and stunning views of the lakeland fells, even Eryri National Park (Snowdonia) across the Irish sea if you are lucky, you can see why this is one of the most popular summits in the UK.

    We have multiple route options available, from the easier, but still not to be underestimated tourist route starting in Wasdale, to the more challenging and longer days out starting from Seathwaite or Greater Langdale. Choose your preferred route and challenge from the options at checkout.

    All our guided hikes are bespoke and subject to staff availability. Please select the exact number of participants and your preferred date at the checkout and we will do our best to accommodate you.

    Price is £240 for the first 6 participants then £40 per person thereafter.


    Scafell Pike is still a challenging day out, even if walked everyday by many thousands of people. We recommend a moderate to high level of walking fitness, experience of steep terrain and ages of 12* years and over to undertake this mountain.

    We try to be as accessible as possible, however, if you have any mobility issues or otherwise it is best to share this with us as soon as possible so we can try to make any reasonable adjustments necessary.

    *Under 18's must be accompanied by a participating responsible adult.
