Join us for a couple of nights camping high in the Lake District mountains, with singing walks over the fells, and by lakes and waterfalls. (We’ve chosen mid-week dates rather than weekend to avoid crowds.)
You will need some fitness, and some experience of hillwalking. We are carrying our packs and tents into the mountains to camp at a secluded riverside spot, and will then enjoy walks without our packs over the summits.
Our songs will reflect the glorious mountains around us and the natural world we live in. There will be a Zoom tutorial to learn songs in advance, and learning videos and recordings are also available for home study.
The singing and the walks will be led by me. As well as having led community choirs and harmony singing workshops in the Lake District, Scotland and Slovenia for over 25 years, I have also trained as a mountain leader. I have led the annual Black Sail youth hostel singing weekend of winter hillwalking for over a decade, various mountain singing wild camps, and other walking tours up the Paps of Jura and to the summit of Slovenia’s highest mountain, Triglav.
