6 Day Camp & Bunk - Bowness on Solway > Wallsend - Details

Bowness-on-Solway > Wallsend
We have four Expedition Treks on the calendar for 2023. The maximum number of walkers on each 'Bowness > Wallsend' expedition is 12 - in either 'Twin Tents'** accommodating two persons or 'Solo Tents'* accommodating one person. 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. Each person on a Trek brings two bags with them - a small daysac for walking with and a main bag that we transfer between camps and a pick-up point in Newcastle on the final day.
