An iconic route around Ullswater, launched by the National Park on 25th April 2015, leads us up the Eastern shore of the Lake around the front of Halling Fell, maybe a quick pitstop in Pooley Bridge before returning around the western shoreline via Bennethead, and around the front of Gowbarrow to see the evening light on the mountains ahead. Distance 31km... ascent surprisingly: 1200m ascent.

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

Please also bring waterproofs with you, even on a good day, these will act as your emergency layer.  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. Please bring a headtorch as we are due to continue late into the afternoon on this walk...

If you are keen to come from further afield and would like to book accommodation, please mention Nics Nordic Walks for a possible discount... i recommend

Please be aware that we may accept some dogs on our walks, who we know very well & we know are very well behaved.  If you find it difficult to be around dogs, or would prefer no dogs were on your walk - PLEASE feel free to let me know as the dog owners are more than happy to leave them at home!

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.  By not telling me you have given permission for me to use your photograph for advertising purposes.  The National Trust and the Forestry Commission may also use your pic to advertise Nordic Walking on their sites.
