Our backpacking weekends have the same theme to our walking weekends, the only difference is that we’re backpacking.
The night before the walk we meet in a pub to discuss the days ahead and the following morning we walk to our overnight stop. The following day we walk back to the start point. The walk each day will be approximately 10 to 15 miles and you’ll need to book your own accommodation for the overnight stop. I can provide details of suitable accommodation if required.
The cost is £65 per person for guiding only.
