Kinder Scout summit, the dramatic views over the western edges and the famous Downfall waterfall (which in the right conditions becomes an upward waterfall). With the possibility of long icicles and an 'other planet' world of frozen grasses in winter light. All in one challenging but achievable day of adventure. Guided in small groups by experienced local Hayfield Mountain Leader. Superb picturesque scenery with plenty of opportunities to pause for photographs.

This is also a picnic walk – you bring your favourite sandwiches, we’ll bring the hot drinks, cookies and mince pies. Escape the Christmas shopping and enjoy a grand day out in the hills instead.
Walking in a small group on a mix of defined and moorland trails. Hill and undulating terrain underfoot, at a relaxed pace. Time to savour scenic photo opportunities and unusual viewpoints. Picnic lunch stop, where we'll serve tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

Ranger Expeditions’ Kinder Scout Winter Wonders is a guided walk and larger groups will have several guides to look after you on the trail. If at any time you feel unwell during the trek, please let us know. 

Unsurprisingly, there are no toilets on the hills, but there are plenty of discrete places for a call of nature. Do let one of our guides know if you move away from the trail for any reason. We encourage folks to mingle and enjoy their day, but please do not move ahead or out of sight of your guide. If you do find yourself separated, remain where you are and call the duty number given out on the evening of the walk.

Photography: Complimentary photos of your day with us are made available to download via our social media platform. If you do not want your photograph to be taken please let us know on the day so we can respect your wishes.

GDPR: As part of our duty of care to you, we need to hold your contact details and any medical declarations (in-confidence) for the build-up and duration of the walk. These will not be passed on to any third parties and will be carefully disposed of afterwards.

Dogs: We love our four-legged friends. But for practical reasons, we’re sorry dogs are not permitted on this challenge.
