Trekking and camping allows you to really get away from the confines of everyday life and all the problems that go with it. Though many of us like to look abroad for our adventures, the UK throws up some great treks and places to walk. So, get the Jetboil camping stoves out and shine your walking boots, these are the best UK treks.
Climbing the Carn Mor Dearg to the top of Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands is one of the finest routes in the country and also the finest way to get to the highest point in the UK. Of course, it’s worth it the whole way up and there are spectacular views of the surrounding Highlands, when you reach the top. Just choose a good time of the year to climb as snow can be prevalent.
Snowdonia via the Bochlwyd Horseshoe is something of an adventure and includes a grade one scramble that will get you to the very top of Glyder Fach. It’s well worth the walk and is a truly satisfying experience when you get to the top. The whole area is in fact magnificent and worth a weekend stay, so brings a tent and a Jetboil camping stove and stay for a prolonged period.
The Saddle through Forcan Ridge
If you’re after amazing views that will take your breath away, well this 8 mile walk in the Northwest Highlands provides fantastic panoramas of Knoydart, to the FiveSisters of Kintail and even allows you to overlook the sea the Isle of Skye. It’s a good walk, but it really is worth it when you get the views you do.
The Coniston Round – Lake District
If you really want to see something beautiful then the Coniston Round in the Lake District is for you. If you can try and time it to catch the morning light and see a fantastic sunrise. The area isn’t too far from most southerners in the UK. Be prepared to do a bit of walking though, it’s a 14 mile trek, so you may want to camp with your Jetboil camping stove and a few tins of beans for sustenance.
If you’re in the Peak District then the Edale Skyline is a must see. Do bring some good socks and a pair of comfortable shoes as it’s a 22 mile trek. However, with a little bit of persistence, perhaps an overnight stay with the Jetboil camping stove, you can split it into two days and really enjoy this fantastic trip.
Ben Lui, Highlands
This amazingly diverse and often not mentioned mountain will test and thrill in equal measure. It also allows you to see some of the best views of the Highlands available. So, why not get set and start climbing. These are just a few of the best UK walking holidays on offer and really provide satisfying walks and spectacular views.
