UK WEEKEND HIKING MEET-UPS

Join the Backabush group in one of our favourite national parks for a weekend of guided hiking. Over the years we have run trips all over the country, from the summit of Snowdon to the coasts of Cornwall and the Dales of Yorkshire. 

 

Our weekend trips include a 2 or 3 nights stay at some superbly located accommodations as well as the guided hikes and many of the meals. We do all the planning for a smooth weekend so that our members can just turn up and enjoy themselves.

 

For each weekend our itinerary of guided hikes is carefully planned to explore the best trails in the area. We offer a choice of hikes each day to suit different peoples fitness, experience and interest. You can decide if you are feeling like a leisurely stroll or like more of a leg stretcher.

We like to help our members share transport costs as much as possible so get in touch if you need a lift, or can offer one. Our hiking weekends are as much about meeting up with new and old friends, as they are about getting into the outdoors.

As well as the hikes we occasionally include some optional extra activities like rock climbing and ghyll scrambling run by professional instructors- check out the event pages for the trip specific details.
