Lake District 24 Peaks Challenge

United Kingdom

24 peaks in 24 hours on this awe-inspiring weekend, peak hopping across the English Lake District.


Day 1: Meet the team

You’ll meet your guide at the accommodation in the Lake District. It's here that you'll have a brief about the hike, before heading out for a pub dinner.

After a hearty breakfast, you’ll take a short drive to your start point for the day in the Langdale Valley. The guide will start the clock at the moment you leave the vehicles and head for Your first summit, Bowfell. Through the rest of the day you’ll tackle many of the major summits of the Scafell range including:

Esk Pike, Great End, Ill Crag, Broad Crag, Scafell Pike, Allen Crag, Rossett Pike, Pike O’ Blisco, Loft Crag, Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark.

Once you’re back at the road, the guide will pause the clock, before you head back to your accommodation for a well-earned meal and rest.

Starting at the head of Ullswater, you'll tackle the remaining 14 peaks. Logbooks at the ready, here is what you can tick off:

Sheffield Pike, Stybarrow Dodd, Raise, Whiteside Bank, Lower Man, Helvellyn, Nethermost Pike, High Crag, Dollywaggon Pike, Fairfield, St Sunday Crag and Birks.

Stop the clock – hopefully your combined walking time over the two days will be under 24 hours, but if not you’ll still have had an awesome couple of days in the Lakeland Fells.

The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable at any time of year – we have the flexibility to swap the days over or reverse the direction if the weather dictated.

To fully enjoy the trip, you need to be in good physical condition and not completely new to exercise and activity on mountainous terrain. Your body and mind will need to cope with sustained activity, over a number of hours, on a variety of terrain, with steep descents and ascents, on very rocky ground at times. Please discuss personal issues on fitness and experience with us; we can offer advice on preparation. The guides will ask you to complete a Booking Form declaring health and medical conditions in advance of your event. The guides need to know about how best to support you on the mountains.
