Climbing Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, isn’t recommended alone or without proper planning and equipment. This guided small-group full-day hike is led by a qualified mountain guide for route-planning, safety, and pointers on the views, leaving you to just enjoy the walk and scenery stress-free. Climb via the Corridor Route, and at the 3,209ft-high (978-meter) summit, admire the panoramas over forests, fells, and lakes before descending.

I had this activity booked thinking it was going to be fun and enjoyable as described. That was far from it, the tour guide was rude and horrible to put it mildly. Just because I was a slow walker he after an hour and a half in to the walk instructed me to head back as it would hold up his plans and the other people in the group. Now I instructed him I would be able to catch up etc...but he ignored what I had to say so I gave up and headed back down on my own. I did not pay for this type of treatment or to have my activity ruined. I have nothing else to say other than that I would have been better off with the other 2 members of party going to Scafell Pike solo or tagging along with other people who were heading that way. The other 2 people in my group had the same experience and had to come back down on their own.
