* A traveler said: "We traveled in a small group (only 6 of us) from Keswick, with our tour guide Mark. Mark was well-suited to guide us, providing lots of details and information about the Lakes, the history, and the general area. We had lots of interesting stops, including the slate mine, Grasmere, a ferry ride on Lake Windemere (from Bowness), and ended up at Castlerigg Stone Circle. I know Mark can't control the weather, but despite some cloudiness, it was really quite good. Plus, just on cue, the sun came out at the Stone Circle. This tour is not strenuous and allows ample time for rest breaks, lunch, and photography. Highly recommend"

Scafell Pike is the tallest mountain in England and a fantastic accomplishment. All that said, it isnt just about standing on top of England, the journey to the top is where you will see the wonderful sights. The huge cliffs and deep gullys send the imagination wild and bring a real sense of adventure. The Corridor Route is by far the most exciting and rewarding route to the summit of Scafell Pike and once you reach the summit you will feel accomplished. Our mission at Summit and Beyond is to reconnect people with nature, inspire confidence, build resilience and teach the skills needed to remain safe in the mountains.
