Langdale Valley Guided Mountain Walks

On the day that this stunning photograph was taken, a client had booked me to take them walking around Langdale. They had heard how beautiful it is in Langdale and had seen lots of photos in books and online. But it was during the Covid pandemic, and they wanted to avoid people.

Luckily I had a plan for this. First, we headed up to this tarn where there is a fabulous view of the Langdale Pikes in the distance. If you are lucky the tarn might be still and have an amazing reflection of the Pikes in it. What a start to the day.

Then I chose a walk up Pike of Blisco. I had first heard of this mountain when I was a teenager. Like famous misheard song lyrics, I thought the person had said “Pike of Blister”. I assumed this was just a joke reference to a hill where they had got bad blisters and I laughed and asked what it was really called.

We approached the Pike from the back, and the only people we saw until we reached the summit were 3 people rock climbing on a small crag near the top. Even on the top, while we had lunch, we saw no more than 10 people in total.

The views over the Langdale Valley were stunning, and my clients were able to take plenty of photographs of the classic views of the Langdale Pikes just as you see in the picture books.
