FAQs


Who will meet me on arrival?

You will need to travel to the trip's starting point on your own. Plan to arrive in Penrith on the edge of the Lake District, where you'll meet your guides and fellow travelers at the train station.

Can I wear hiking shoes or cross-trainers, or do I need hiking boots?

The best footwear for this trip are water-proof, lightweight hiking boots. Ankle support is a good idea on wet, slippery terrain.

Can I skip a day of hiking on this trip?

Yes. If we are staying in the same hotel, you may simply relax at the hotel and explore the nearby villages. When we are changing hotels, you would ride with our guide in the minibus.

Will I need to purchase much equipment for this trip?

You will want to have a daypack large enough to carry your warm, rainproof layers; a packed lunch; drinking water; and personal belongings (phone, wallet, keys.) We also recommend trekking poles for support and balance.

Do I need to train for this trip?

You'll be hiking up to 15 miles in a single day on challenging terrain. We recommend that you arrive with boots that have been well broken in from your previous hikes, and that you are fit and ready for the experience.

What is the minimum age for this trip?
The standard minimum age for this trip is 18, but check out our private trip options for families and groups with younger guests.
What is the best time of year to hike England Coast to Coast?
The best time to hike the England Coast to Coast trail is typically during the late spring to early autumn months, from April to October, when the weather is relatively mild and the trail is at its most accessible and picturesque. MT Sobek offers England Coast to Coast tour dates from April to October.
How scenic is England Coast to Coast?
The England Coast to Coast trail is exceptionally scenic, offering a diverse tapestry of landscapes including rolling countryside, picturesque villages, heather-clad moors, and stunning mountain vistas. It traverses through three national parks, showcasing some of the finest scenery England has to offer.
What is the hardest part of England Coast to Coast?
The hardest part of the England Coast to Coast hike is often considered to be the stretch across the Lake District National Park, particularly the ascent and descent of the rugged fells, which can be physically demanding. This trip is rated at Level 4 as there are multiple consecutive days of hiking and guests should also be prepared for varied weather conditions, including rain.
