Walk Description:

Join us for a grand tour of Patterdale Mountain Rescue Huts, with team members to give a fabulous insight into our local team and their endless work to keep us safer in the fells.

Have a brew and cake with team members, a nosey around the landrovers and how their systems work.  I'm sure there will be an opportunity to buy last minute xmas prezzies and the PMRT Xmas cards bring extra pennies!  Then heading out for a walk to suit everyone attending, dependent on numbers we may have a faster and slower group, but if not, we shall all enjoy a lowland walk and chat, as we head for about 3-4 miles towards soup and sandwich at The Inn On The Lake.

Lunch is included in the walk price and £15 of your walk cost will be donated to Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team.

We hope you can come, and welcome new faces alongside those who have walked with us many times before.

Some technical ground will be covered so all terrain shoes with a good trail grip are essential.

Please also bring an emergency extra mid layer, & full waterproofs with you - with taped seems so they are actually waterproof!), even on a good day, these will act as your emergency layer.  A hat and gloves are also essential to head into the mountains, it can often be cold when we stoop, even on summy days.  We will get a good speed up to do this loop in the allotted time so make sure you come with a water bottle & high energy snack, and a pack to take some layers off as we head off!  PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR FITNESS LEVEL OR ABILITY TO WALK ON THE TRICKY LAKELAND TERRAIN AS I'M HAPPY TO HAVE A CHAT ABOUT THIS. You will not be allowed to walk with our group if you do not have the right kit with you and suitable sustenance/drinks/food! Sorry to sound so strict, but we are out with you guys in the fells often with no road close by, so important you come equipped.  Our leaders will always have a first aid kit & emergency kit but you must be able to carry your own rucksack for the duration of the walk. From September until end of April, please bring a headtorch on all walks which are due to continue into the afternoon after lunchtime...

If you are joining one of our adventures/activites outdoors, by signing up you are consenting to our help in the case of emergency with regards to 1st Aid as required, and that you have updated any medication info to your instructor prior to the activity if anything has changed since you last walked with us.

If you are keen to come from futher afield and would like to book accomodation, pleaseget intoch with us for recommendations of where to stay.

We do accept some dogs on our walks, who we know very well & we know are very well behaved. 

Lastly, I may snap a few shots during our walk, PLEASE let me know if you would prefer not to be on social media or your pic used for advertising Nics Nordic Walks.  I totally understand that some folk would prefer to keep their mountain adventures as an escape from the outside world, but unless you let me know, then your image may be used.  

Thank you.......
