Lake District Activity Week (Fri) - Optional accommodation
36 people attending
14 places left
During these five days in which you can pick and choose your attendance as you like we are bringing together members of our group in one valley were we will do a number of different activities in the day and socialise in the evenings.
The activities will depend on which leaders attend and the weather at the time but we already have walks and mountain biking lined up with more activities to follow as other leaders sign up. I've done smilar events which have had several other leaders attend and every day we did things which catered for most people. More information will follow nearer to the time but many of you probably will need to start thinking about your holiday dates for next year hence the early posting.
The Langdale Valley is an amazing location with many options of walks, climbs, rides and more from the campsite or within a short drive we can explorer further afield.
OutdoorLads will have booking options likely for the Great Langdale NT campsite in the next few months which will enable us to have the group field so please look for further details soon.
I'll be staying at the Great Langdale NT Campsite from the Tuesday afternoon which is a short walk to several pubs for the evenings but there are many other places to stay including the Old Dungeon Gill Hotel, New Dungeon Gill Hotel, Langdale Hotel, Elterwater Hostel, Baysbrown Campsite, Great Langdale Bunkhouse & more.
