Map This Adventure

Overview

Hike the stunning interior sections of the Hadrian's Wall path with fewer miles per day, perfect if you want to either have a more leisurely schedule or reduce the difficulty of the trip. Your tour starts with arrival in Newcastle on the eastern edge of the country. You will then meet our local representative and shuttle to your starting point in Lanercost, skipping the first two days of the standard Hadrian's Wall hike. You'll spend four days hiking the impressive interior region of England, with its hilly and entrancing landscape and the best preserved portion of the Wall, including a loop hiking day to the fort in Vindolanda. You'll finish with a pickup at the Brocolitia Roman Fort and a transfer back to Newcastle.

Difficulty:

Easy to Moderate - This trip includes the hilliest portions of the hike but reduces the distance covered to eight miles per day over four days of hiking. Since you have all day to do it, you can take your time and enjoy the sights.

Equipment:

You are responsible for your own equipment. Good quality walking boots/shoes will be needed for the trip and, given the normal weather conditions, appropriate outdoor clothing including waterproof pants and jacket are recommended. More details will be provided in your pre-departure packet.

Accommodations:

The accommodation on the tours are in inns, small family-run hotels, and bed & breakfasts, along with a beginning and ending night at a first-class hotel in Newcastle. While the hiking takes place mostly in rural areas, the quality of lodging is mostly very good. We endeavor and almost always do provide en-suite accommodation, but this cannot always be guaranteed. Single occupancy is available subject to confirmation and availability.

Price:

All prices below are in US dollars, per person, for a minimum group size of two. The Base Price for all adventures includes a Pre-Departure Packet, double occupancy accommodations in three-star lodging facilities, breakfasts, welcome meeting with our in-country staff, transfer from Newcastle to the hiking start, luggage transfers, map of the Hadrian's Wall walking route, and emergency support phone line.
