Trip Overview

 

From the Irish Sea to the North Sea, follow in the footsteps of fell walker and author Alfred Wainwright who pioneered the England Coast to Coast Walk in 1973.  Following our ceremonial dipping of boots in the Irish Sea at St. Bees Head, we embark on four days of trekking through the Lake District National Park, a stunning landscape filled with gem-like lakes and England's highest mountains.  From there we pass through two more national parks, the scenic landscapes of Yorkshire Dales and the heather clad ridges and moorlands of North York Moors.  Along the way we hike through and overnight in quaint hamlets and villages, visit medieval castles and monasteries, and enjoy a lake district boat ride and a 19th century steam train ride.  Our final day of hiking takes us to the picturesque North Sea village of Robin's Hood Bay where we again dip our boots signifying the successful end of our trek.
