Peak District Multi-Activity Weekend 2019: Hostel
25 people attending
1 place left
Our ever popular Peak District Multi-Activity Weekend is back for 2019!
We will base ourselves at the Glenorchy Centre in Wirksworth, from where we have easy access to watersports at Carsington Water, cycling on the High Peak and Tissington Trails, climbing at Birchen Edge Crag, or anything else you may wish to arrange for yourself.
We have a variety of linked activities available to book onto, for both hostel attendees and those who live locally and want to just come over for the day - but those signed up to the hostel will have priority access to these events, and the waiting list will be actively managed to give priority to hostel attendees. Events we have arranged are:
However, please note that to embrace the multi-activity nature of this weekend - no walk for Saturday is planned.
We'll also have a short walk and optional pub lunch on the Sunday should people wish to take part in that before going home, to really get the most out of the weekend.
On the Friday night we'll have the OutdoorLads buffet, and breakfasts and an evening meal on Saturday are also included. As we're in the town centre, a visit to one of the excellent local pubs on Saturday night is a possibility too.
