Experience the thrill of a Lakeland or Scottish winter!
Whether we are crunching over frozen, snow-covered tops that are reflected
in the lakes far below, or making progress with heads bowed against the
remnants of an Atlantic gale, we can be sure of an exhilarating adventure
during the short winter days on the fells.
We will raise your awareness of the hazards on wintry hills, introduce
you to the correct equipment, and teach you the skills to travel safely
in this exciting environment.
We will make best use of the prevailing conditions, and where possible,
practice ice axe and crampon skills and basic rope work, including the
use of a rope as a navigation and walking aid.
The best winter conditions come in short bursts in Britain, and the Lake
District is handy for short breaks.
We also travel to Scotland for many of our winter activities.
Conditions / Level of Difficulty / Fitness Requirements
We cover a wide spectra of difficulty from beginner to expert, so whether
it is your first time or one of many, we can cater to your particular
needs or desires. Our clients range from young to old and from low to
high fitness, and neither age or physical condition are barriers to an
enjoyable holiday with Go Higher. We have found that the most important
factor in you achieving your goals is self-confidence, which we believe
we can enhance.
As a general guide, you will need to be of at least average fitness and
be willing and able to cope with often very cold and inclement conditions.
