Everest High Passes Trek

We are safely back in the UK after the trip of a lifetime.
The experience for all of us was so powerful, we think it will take quite a while for us to understand what happened and digest it all.

Coast to Coast Guided Walk

Covering 190 odd miles and traversing three national parks, this classic hike offers magnificent scenery with rolling hills bordered by dry stone walls and charming little villages with a sprinkling of houses and cosy pubs. From the tiny Cumbrian seaside resort of St. Bees on the Irish Sea the route heads east with the wind into the Lake District with options to extend days with peak ascents. In the Yorkshire Dales we cross the mystical Nine Standards Rig, before following the beautiful River Swale for a couple of days into the old market town of Richmond. There follows a marathon section to link up with the North York Moors National Park from where we roller coaster around to the North Sea Coast to make a triumphant entrance into RobinsHood's Bay where a celebratory cheers is in order. Accompanied by an experienced guide and staying at carefully chosen B&B's, this really is one of our favourite walks in Britain.
