The ultimate celebration of Kinder Scout after sundown. Savouring views of the Manchester metropolis lights and beyond, from Peak District's highest mountain. While enjoying hot chocolate, coffee, cookies and cheesecake. Together we enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this quiet time. At a steady pace we ascend the plateau, journeying past the atmospheric, mysterious shapes of gritstone tors. As you settle down in a comfortable spot while we serve refreshments. We then have some more time for exploring before descending back to Hayfield.
NOTES - With your health and safety in mind, we'll continue to offer pre-packaged food items. If you’ve got any questions on the steps we’ve taken, just drop us a message. We fully support the Peak District PSPO in wildfire prevention. Hence all our hot drinks on the hill are provided from flasks.

SAFETY & OTHER MATTERS
Ranger Expeditions’ Kinder Scout Guy Fawkes Night Special 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. Do graze on snacks and keep hydrated during the walk, a little fatigue is often resolved by taking on something to eat and drink.
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.
