New Year’s Eve 2018

What better way to see in the New Year than combining some great walking in the company of a friendly bunch of people, toasting in 2019 over a great meal and getting toasty in cosy pubs or lounging in front of log fires.

This year we’ve extended our New Year’s Eve trips to offer three different four-night breaks depending on how you like to spend the occasion. All trips include accommodation, guided day walks, breakfasts, packed lunches and most evening meals.

Lake District

If you like a party atmosphere then this is one for you, with more than 80 people staying in the spacious Scandi-inspired hostel in Patterdale which offers fantastic views and a lounge area designed for socialising. With walks aplenty as well as other non-walking activities on the doorstep, this trip has all the elements for a perfect New Year’s Eve break.

North York Moors

This one will appeal to those who prefer to be part of a smaller group on New Year’s Eve. Based in the beautiful market town of Helmsley, we head out from the hostel each day for walks across the moors venturing into quiet backwaters or along the coast through fishing villages where time has stood still. Once back in Helmsley we also ensure there’s ample time to explore the fine collection of pubs, cafés and shops in town.


If hostels are just not your bag, then join us for a New Year celebration in Snowdonia, staying in a cottage nestled in the foothills of the mountains and accommodating a maximum of 18 guests With the option of having their own private room or sharing in a double or twin, guests will also find there’s plenty of time to relax in front of the log burner after a day’s walking in the National Park.
