“I still to this day remember my first venture up Helvellyn which was officially the first ever mountain I would climb. Believe it or not, I barely slept the night before we’d planned to climb it and I kept thinking ‘why am I putting myself through this?’ I was truly nervous of doing something so far out of my comfort zone. I kept worrying about the weather, the height, my fitness and pretty much everything that could possibly go wrong.
And, of course, nothing did go wrong and we saw brilliant blue skies the whole day. That feeling after we’d completed the hike was something else. The achievement, the new found confidence. It left me inspired to start and pursue other dreams that I had put off or been too afraid to go after for so long. And the hiking just became more intense because I wanted to push myself further. I wasn’t afraid anymore.” – Paula x

Do I need to be an experienced walker to take part in the hike?
It would be recommended in this instance that you do have some experience of hiking. Our experienced Mountain Leader, Cliff Lowther, recommends that in order to fully enjoy the hike participants should be able to comfortably walk a minimum of 10miles on flat ground (approx 4 hours) without any real concerns. The routes we will be taking will be the easier options compared to more complex routes available but may still involve some beginner level scrambling at times.
We would ask that if you have any reservations about your health/fitness that you consult with your GP prior to making a booking.
Will I need to bring any specialist equipment?
You must have a comfortable pair of walking boots (failure to arrive in appropriate footwear may prevent you from taking part for health and safety reasons) and a good waterproof jacket. Also we would recommend a comfortable rucksack for carrying water and food. The walk will run even in wet weather unless the guide decides that the weather is a safety risk.
How will I get there?
You will be expected to provide your own transportation to and from the starting point, details of which will be provided no later than a week before the walk takes place. You will also be expected to cover any parking costs that are incured. Should an overnight stay be required we will be happy to recommend a suitable location near to the starting point.
How many people will be on the walk?
This is a woman only walk and there will be a maximum number of twelve women as well as Paula herself and our professional mountain guide (please note it is likely that our guide will be male). The hike is designed to ensure a supportive community and is very much a group adventure. We would expect participants to have some experience of distance walking/hiking.
