Vaude Backpacker Tents

Backpacking with Independent Spirit

Itinerary - The first night's camp is to the west of Carlisle, with those choosing to walk along the Solway Firth, taking their 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.

Three Itineraries to choose from

'Carlisle > Heddon'
60 Miles - 4 Days - Self-Guided - 4 Nights

Carlisle Start - First night's camp is next to a village, west of Carlisle, the evening before the first day's walk, where the Wall begins to become evident on the ground.

Heddon-on-the-Wall Finish - Four full-day walks, covering 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 - The night before the first day's walk is at a campsite in a village just to the west of Carlisle. There is a country pub that serves meals right next to the campsite.

Tuesday - Night 2 - First Day's Walk (6-7 hours) is 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 - Second 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 - Third Day's Walk (6-7 hours) continues 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 (5-6 hours) follows the line of the Wall to Heddon-on-the-Wall, where Trekkers are reunited with their heavy bags.
