Vaude Backpacker Tents

Backpacking with Independent Spirit

Itinerary - The first night's camp is to the west of Carlisle, taking a stroll from Bowness to the first night's camp on the afternoon beforehand. There are then four walking days to Heddon-on-the-Wall, or five walking days to Wallsend.

Daily Routine - Trekkers don't have to walk as a group, but are free to walk at a time of their own choosing, in whatever company they prefer, self-guided with their map, to the destination prepared for their arrival.

Two Itineraries to choose from

'Bowness > Heddon'
70 Miles - 5 Days - Self-Guided - 4 Nights

Bowness-on-Solway Start - From where the Trail starts, the Trek begins (having dropped main bags off at the first night's campsite, or with us in Carlisle at midday) with an afternoon ten-mile 'stretch of the legs' along the Solway Firth to the first night's camp next to a village to the west of Carlisle.

Heddon-on-the-Wall Finish - Four full-day walks, covering a further sixty miles and three more camps, the last day's walk finishes where the Trail on the line of the Wall ends (before diverting down to the banks of the River Tyne).

Monday - Night 1 - First Day's Walk - An afternoon (4-5 hour) walk along the Solway Firth, to the first night's camp. There is a country pub that serves meals right next to the campsite.

Tuesday - Night 2 - Second Day's Walk - A full day's walk (6-7 hours) by the banks of the River Eden, via Carlisle into the Cumbrian countryside, on to a camp set up by a working farm, with a farmhouse that can provide an evening meal, as well as having a drinks license.

Wednesday - Night 3 - Third Day's Walk (7-8 hours) is up on to the Northumbrian Whin Sill, to a campsite near the Wall's most central point. There is a country pub that serves meals nearby.

Thursday - Night 4 - Fourth Day's Walk - A full-day's walk (6-7 hours) continuing along the Whin Sill, past the Wall's highest point and into the North Tyne valley. The camp is set up on the outskirts of a village with its own pub, that serves evening meals.

Friday - Last Day's Walk - A full day (5-6 hours) following the line of the Wall to Heddon-on-the-Wall, where Trekkers are reunited with their heavy bags.

2018 UPDATE - All of our Backpacker Treks scheduled for this year now have at least two tents (4 x persons) booked on them. Consequently, we do not expect that the minimum number supplement will need to be applied on any of this year's Treks.
