Helvellyn Moonlight Walk

Helvellyn Moonlight Walk


This is an opportunity to see Helvellyn and the Lake District like never before.

A Quiet Helvellyn

Helvellyn was recently voted Britain’s favourite mountain and has become popular with this new status.

This is an opportunity to have the summit to yourself and escape the daytime crowds. A rare chance to enjoy a peaceful walk and enjoy some of the best sunset views in the Lake District.

Traverse 5 Summits

The route is a tough 11-mile circular walk, starting and finishing in Glenridding, and takes you through the stunning Grisedale Valley, across 5 summits, and returning via Keppel Cove late evening.

This is an incredible route and witnessing a sunset makes it even more magical. This is an experience not to be missed. The route takes you across the following 5 peaks:

Dollywagon Pike – 858m
Nethermost Pike – 891m
Helvellyn – 950m (sunset)
Lower Man – 925m
White Side – 863m

Walk location

The walk starts early evening/late afternoon from Glenridding in the Lake District. Each Helvellyn guided walk will start at a slightly different time depending on the month. Meeting times are above next to the dates.

Walk pre-requisites

You will require a good level of hillwalking fitness and will need to be able to walk for up to 7-hours and tackle the 1,100m+ of ascent. Our Helvellyn guided walks are led by experienced mountain leaders and you will be in a small group at all times.

How to book your Helvellyn guided walk

Spaces on the Helvellyn guided walk are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Places are limited and this is a small group guided walk so book your place as soon as possible.
