Our brand new bespoke UK trek, the Edale Skyline Challenge is coming in March 2021! A fantastic hike taking in all of the beautiful views the Peak District has to offer. Described as the ultimate trek in the Peak District, this walk is not for the faint-hearted, some training will be required but you will have an incredible feeling of accomplishment as you cross the finish line!

You will set off in groups of 10 (subject to restrictions) led by an expert guide to discover this picturesque area of the UK.  Walking is a great way – if not the best way – of getting and keeping fit. Almost anyone can do it, no matter what your experience level is; push yourself to see what you can achieve!

    From the little village of Hope, your beautiful walk ascends Win Hill before heading north west along a fabulous ridge with Ladybower reservoir down to your right and the Edale Valley to your left. Following this we begin the ascent of Kinder Scout, the scene of the 1936 mass trespass which was the founding act in the formation of our National Parks in Great Britain.

    The vast boggy and deeply eroded upland plateau of Kinder Scout is then negotiated and navigated before you arrive at the wonderful Kinder Downfall waterfall which on a windy day does not reach the floor as the wind pushes the magnificent waterfall back uphill. From the downfall we head south along another fantastic edge with views out westwards towards the great city of Manchester before you head over towards the great ridge which forms the southern flank of the Edale valley.

    After a brief water stop on the narrow road across is the edge we head over to Mam Tor and then again the ridge towards Loose Hill before descending back to Hope and the finish.
