English Lake District, Hill Walking Holidays
23 - 30 Aug & 30 Aug - 6 Sept 2014
Based at Buttermere, in the heart of the ‘Western Fells’, this is VegiVentures 25th year in one of the most beautiful parts of England. The grounds of our guest house extend to the shores of Buttermere, starting point of many lake and mountain walks. Clean mountain air, pure water, excellent vegetarian/vegan food and safe hill walking led by our experienced Lakeland guides, go to make these exceptional holidays. Hill, valley and lakeside walking are the main features. For early risers there is a stretch, breathing and movement class, often held right by the lake. There is also a wide choice of gentle activities in the region: visit Wordsworth's cottage at Grassmere, take a boat on Lake Windermere or Coniston, visit working watermills or do some relaxing shopping in Keswick!
On week one the walks are more gentle; this holiday is ideal for beginners and those who need to build up their fitness. Our leader is experienced guide Alastair Clark. Week two includes more challenging, longer walks, venturing high into the mountains. The leader is experienced mountain guide Chris Yalland. These holidays are open to both the beginner and the more experienced mountain walker. The food is catered by Swiss-trained chef and founder of VegiVentures Nigel Walker.
Prices from: £345 in-house, £160 camping, including guided walks and 7 nights half board. Packed lunches are avaialble to order. Please contact us for full details and a booking form.
